    Our sahaba RA

    Report bad ads?

    Sa’eed bin Jubayr narrates: Ibn Abbas ra died while in At-Ta’if. I witnessed his funeral and then a bird came that I had never seen before.

    The bird entered the burial site and we looked and waited to see if it would come out, but we didn’t see it come out of the hole. When Ibn Abbas ra was laid in the ground, we heard this verse being recited at the edge of his grave but we didn’t know who recited it:

    يا أيتها النفس المطمئنة ارجعي إلى ربك راضية مرضية فادخلي في عبادي وادخلي جنتي

    O satisfied soul, return to your Lord content and with pleasure. Enter among My servants. Enter among My garden.

    Re: Our sahaba RA

    Umm Aban bint Utbah ra rejected proposal from not just one man, but from three men from among Ashrah Mubasharah

    Her insight into the men and their personalities is discerning.

    She journeyed to Syria and witnessed its opening to Islam with her brother Abu Hashim and her husband Aban ibn Sa’id. She was widowed on the day of the Battle of Ajnadayn. It is said that they were together no more than two nights before she was widowed. Another version says her husband who was killed was Yazid ibn Abu Sufyan.

    When she was widowed, ‘Umar ra proposed to her and she rejected him. She was asked “Why?” She said, “When he enters, he enters sternly and when he leaves, he leaves sternly. He is preoccupied by his Hereafter from his worldly affairs, as if he were staring his Lord in the eye.” Another version has it, “He enters frowning and he leaves frowning. His doors are closed and his giving is little.”

    Then Zubayr ibn al-Awwam ra proposed to her and she rejected him. She was asked, “Why?” She said, “A wife gets nothing from him but chores and work to secure his needs. And he says, ‘I did this’ and, ‘I did that’, and ‘I am this’, and ‘I am that’.”

    Then ‘Ali ra proposed to her and she rejected him. She was asked, “Why?” And she said, “Women have no luck when they are with him … ”

    Then Talhah ra proposed to her and she said, “Marry me, truly.” People said, “How is this?” She said, “I truly know his moral character. When he enters, he enters laughing and when he leaves he leaves smiling. When he is asked, he gives. When I withdraw, he inquires; when I work, he thanks; and when I do wrong, he forgives.”

    ‘Ali ra was visiting them in their home and he said (to her husband), “Abu Muhammad, may I speak to Umm Aban?” He said, “Speak to her.” ‘Ali said, “As-salamu alayki, oh woman who is dear to herself.” She said, “Alayk as-salam.” He said, “The Leader of the Believers, Chief of the Muslims, proposed to you and you rejected him.”

    “That is so.”
    “And I proposed to you and I am from the Prophetn s.a.w and you rejected me.”
    “That is so.”

    In another version, ‘Ali added, “You refused all those whom you refused, and married this son of the daughter of Al-Hadrami.” She said “Decree and destiny.” ‘Ali ra replied, “You know, you married the one of us who was most beautiful of face, the one with the best hand, and the one with the most goodness toward his family.”‪

    Re: Our sahaba RA

    The Shiah claim that Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) hated Hazrat Abu Bakr and Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) due to them usurping the Khilaafah from him. This claim is false and baseless as it is authentically proven that Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) loved Hazrat Abu Bakr and Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) and regarded them most worthy for the Khilaafah. In fact, it is reported that Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was not pleased with any person becoming the Khalifah after the demise of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) besides Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).

    عن الحسن البصري عن علي بن أبي طالب قال قدم رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أبا بكر فصلى بالناس وإني لشاهد غير غائب وإني لصحيح غير مريض ولو شاء أن يقدمني لقدمني فرضينا لدنيانا من رضيه الله ورسوله لديننا

    أسد الغابة 3/328

    Hazrat Hasan Basri (rahimahullah) reports that Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) appointed Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to lead the people in salaah (during his final illness). At that time, I was present, not absent, and I was healthy and well, not sick. If Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had wished to appoint me to lead the people in salaah, he could have done so (but he did not appoint me and appointed Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)). We are thus happy for that person to lead us in our dunya (in becoming our Khalifah) whom Allah Ta‘ala and His Rasul (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) were happy with to lead us in our deen (by leading us in salaah).”

    Similarly, it is reported that Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) did not regard anyone more worthy and entitled for the post of khilaafat after the demise of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) than Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).

    عن سيار أبي الحكم أن أبا بكر لما ثقل أطلع رأسه إلى الناس من كوة فقال يا أيها الناس إني قد عهدت عهدا أفترضون به فقام الناس فقالوا قد رضينا فقام علي فقال لا نرضى إلا أن يكون عمر بن الخطاب فكان عمر

    مصنف ابن أبي شيبة 17/71

    When Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had fallen ill and was nearing his end, he addressed the people from his window saying, “I am about to appoint a khalifah (who will take charge of your affairs after my demise). Will you be pleased with the person whom I appoint as khalifah over you?” The people responded, “We will be pleased with whomsoever you appoint as khalifah over us.” Thereafter, Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) stood up and said, “We will not be pleased with anyone besides Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).” ​Thereafter, Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was appointed as khalifah.

    From the above narrations, it becomes abundantly clear that Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) loved Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and regarded them to be most worthy for the Khilaafah in their respective eras.

    Re: Our sahaba RA

    Rabi Ibn Amer رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ عنه explains the mission of Islam to the Persian King, Rustum:

    At the head of the Persian army Rustam marched against Qadisiyya and encamped on the east bank of the Ateeq. The Muslim forces lay entrenched at Qadisiyya on the west bank of the Ateeq.

    Rustam the Commander-in-Chief of the Persian forces sent a message to the Muslim Commander Saad bin Abi Waqqaas رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ عنه asking him to send an emissary for talks. Saad deputed Rabi bin Amir as the envoy.

    Rabi crossed the bridge and made for the camp of Rustam. Rabi appeared before Rustam wearing a coat of shining mail over which was wrapped a coarse woollen cloak. Around his head was a veil held by thongs of a camel's girth. His sword hung at his side in a sheath of coarse cloth. In his right hand he carried his spear. Rabi mounted on a shaggy horse arrived at the edge of the carpet at which Rustam and his couriers were seated.

    The Persians wanted Rabi to lay aside his arms. Rabi said, "I have not come to you to lay down my weapons. You invited me, and I have come, if you do not wish me to come the way I like, I shall return."

    Rustam asked his men to let the Muslim come the way he wished.
    When Rustum, the king of persia asked the Muslims, why had they come to Persia?

    Rabiah Ibn 'Amir said “Allah Azza wa jal has sent us to deliver you from worshiping the creation to worshiping the Creator of the creation and to deliver you from the constriction of this world to the vastness of this world and the hereafter and from the oppression of the religions to the justice of Islam. Allah Azza wa jal has sent us to save you from worshiping each other.”

    Rabi said that their mission was to spread Islam. He said, "If you accept Islam we are brothers and there is peace between us; if you refuse we fight you and leave things to God."
    "What do you expect in return", asked Rustam.
    Rabi said, "Victory if we survive, and Paradise if we die fighting in the way of Allah".
    Rustam said that he should be allowed some time to think over the matter further.
    Rabi said that according to a tradition of the Holy Prophet he could give him a time of three days.
    "Are you their chief", asked Rustam.
    Rabi said, "No, but the Muslims are like one body, and the lowest is equal to the highest."

    Re: Our sahaba RA

    Hazrat Sa’d bin Abi Waqqaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) says:

    Three nights before embracing Islam, I had a dream in which I saw that I was engulfed in extreme darkness. On account of the darkness, I was unable to see anything. Suddenly, a moon appeared and I began to follow it. I then saw that Hazrat Zaid bin Haarithah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had preceded me in reaching this light.

    On awakening, since I had learnt of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) claiming nubuwwah (prophethood), I went to him and enquired, “What are you actually inviting towards?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “I invite you towards the oneness of Allah Ta‘ala and I invite you to attest that I am the messenger of Allah Ta‘ala.” I immediately accepted Islam saying, “I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship besides Allah Ta‘ala and that Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is Allah’s messenger.”

    Re: Our sahaba RA

    Hazrat Talhah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates:

    Once, I travelled to Busraa for the purpose of trade. One day, I was in the market place of Busraa when I heard a monk calling out from his monastery, “Find out if there is anyone among these traders who is a resident of the Haram of Makkah Mukarramah.” I responded, “I am a resident of the Haram of Makkah Mukarramah.”

    The monk asked, “Has Ahmed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) appeared yet?” I asked the monk for further clarification saying, “Who?” The monk replied, “The son of ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abdil Muttalib. This is the month in which he will appear. He will appear in the Haram of Makah Mukarramah and migrate to a rocky land (a mountainous area) that has abundant date palms. He is the last of the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam) and the final Nabi. Do not delay in following him.”

    The conversation with the monk had a profound effect on my heart. I immediately returned to Makkah Mukarramah and asked the people whether anything new had transpired in my absence. They replied, “Yes, Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), the trustworthy, has claimed prophethood, and the son of Abu Quhaafah (Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)) has joined him.”

    Without delay, I went to Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) who took me to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). On arriving in the blessed presence of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), I embraced Islam and also gave him a detailed account of what had transpired between the monk and myself at Busraa.

    Re: Our sahaba RA

    One of the greatest privileges and favours which ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) enjoyed from Allah Ta‘ala was that he was raised in the care of none other than Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). The circumstances which led to him entering the care of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) are as follows:

    Before Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was blessed with prophethood, there was a period during which the Quraish and the other people of Makkah Mukarramah suffered a severe drought. In this difficult period, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) noticed that his uncle, Abu Taalib, had many dependents, and due to the drought, it was difficult for him to provide for them all. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) thus went to his other uncle, ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), who was very wealthy, and said, “O ‘Abbaas, my uncle! Your brother, Abu Taalib, has many dependents, and as you can see, people have been afflicted by the drought. Let us approach him and offer to lessen his burden by each of us taking one of his dependents into our care.”

    ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) agreed and they proceeded to Abu Taalib. When they came to him, they said, “We wish to lighten your burden of providing for your dependents until the drought subsides.” Abu Taalib replied, “Leave ‘Aqeel with me. You may then take any of my other children into your care.”

    As a result, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) took ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) into his care, while ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) took Ja’far (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) into his care. ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was thus blessed to remain in the care of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) until Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was blessed with prophethood. ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) then accepted Islam when he was only ten years of age.

    Re: Our sahaba RA

    During the time of Amirul Muminin; Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu’anhu) a fire/volcano erupted in Madinah Munawwarah.

    Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu’anhu) told Sayyiduna Tamim (radiyallahu’anhu)

    Go and stop it.

    Sayyiduna Tamim Dari (radiyallahu’anhu) went towards it and merely indicated like one who is pushing something with his upper robe in his bare hands and the fire returned to its place or the lava returned into the volcano.

    (Kitabuz Zuhd of Imam Abu Dawud, Hadith: 395, Dalailun Nubuwwah of Bayhaqi, vol.6 pg.80, Dalailun Nubuwwah of Abu Nu’aym, Hadith: 533-534. Also see Al-Isabah, number: 837 & 8434)
