    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.

    Re: Our sahaba RA

    Sayyiduna Haarithah bin Nu’maan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was an eminent Ansaari Sahaabi of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) who had fought in the Battle of Badr. From all the virtues of this Sahaabi, it was the love, respect and selflessness with which he served his mother, Ja’dah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), that stood out the most.

    Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once mentioned to the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), “I entered Jannah (in a dream) and heard the sound of someone reciting the Quraan Majeed. I asked, ‘Who is this (reciting the Quraan Majeed)?’ They (the angels) replied, ‘Haarithah bin Nu’maan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).’” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then remarked to the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), “That rank is acquired through obedience and service to parents! That rank is acquired through obedience and service to parents!”

    The extent to which Haarithah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) went to see to his mother’s comfort can gauged by the fact that he would feed his mother by placing the food in her mouth with his own hand. Furthermore, if his mother gave him an instruction, but he failed to hear what she had said, then he would not inconvenience her by asking her to repeat what she had said. Rather, he would later on turn to those who had heard her instruction and ask them what she had said.

    It was this quality, of serving his mother with complete love, respect and consideration, that earned this Sahaabi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) the rank where Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) himself heard him reciting the Quraan in Jannah.

    Re: Our sahaba RA

    In one Hadith Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam has said:
    Allah Ta’aala has chosen me (as His final messenger) and chose for my companionship-my Sahaabah.

    Hadhrat Abdullah ibnu Mas’ood (Radiyallahu Anhu) states:

    Allah Ta’aala assessed the hearts of all mankind and found the heart of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) to best and selected him for prophethood. Thereafter Allah Ta’aala assessed the hearts of the creation after assessing the heart of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) and found that the hearts of the-Sahabah-to be the best of the hearts of the creation.(Musnad Ahmad Vol.6 Pg. 379, #3600)
    ======================

    If one has to study the history of Islam then one will undoubtedly reach this conclusion that it was the nation of Sahaabah that Allah Ta’aala had divinely selected to establish the Deen of Islam in the world. The pillars and the structures of Islam all rest upon the efforts of the Sahaabah. When it came to the preservation of the Quran it was none other than the Sahaabah that were selected for this noble task. When it came to the preservation of the Ahaadith of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), and passing it on to the Taabi’een then again it was the illustrious Sahaabah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) (May Allah Ta’aala be pleased with them). They were responsible for spreading the word, action and spirit of the entire deen of Islam to the Ummah. Hence one can safely say that the Sahaabah are the foundation and basis of this entire Deen of Islam. Minus the Sahaabah, the authenticity and reliability of the Quran and Hadith of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) will be lost. Hence we understand that the Sahaabah played the greatest and most pivotal role in securing and preserving Deen.

    Hadhrat Anas رضي الله عنه narrates that a man came to Rasulullaah saying, "O Rasulullaah ! I am a man with a black skin, an ugly face and without any wealth. Will I enter Jannah if I fight those people (the Kuffaar army)?" "Certainly" replied Rasulullaah . The man then advanced and fought until he was martyred. When Rasulullaah came by his corpse, Rasulullaah said, "Allaah has beautified your face, made you fragrant and increased your wealth." (Addressing the Sahabah رضي الله عنهم) Rasulullaah then said, "I have seen his two wives from the wide-eyed damsels of Jannah pulling at his coat, disputing with each other about who will enter between his skin and his coat."

    Re: Our sahaba RA

    Hadhrat Abu Sa'eed Khudri رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasulullaah said, "Whenever a Mu'min is hurt on his body, Allaah uses it as a means to annul some of his sins." Hadhrat Ubay bin Ka'b رضي الله عنه then prayed, "O Allaah! I beseech You to allow a fever to inflict the body of Ubay bin Ka'b until the day he meets you (until I die). However, it should not prevent him from salaah, fasting, Hajj, Umrah or Jihaad in Your path." A fever then overcame him where he stood and did not leave him until he passed away. Even while suffering the fever, he was always present for salaah, observed his fasts, performed Hajj and Umrah and participated in military expeditions.

    Hadhrat Abu Sa'eed Khudri رضي الله عنه narrates that a person came to Rasulullaah and asked, "Tell me what we receive in exchange for these illnesses that keep afflicting us?" Rasulullaah replied, "They annul sins." He Ubay رضي الله عنه asked, "Even if it is something mild?" Rasulullaah said, "Even if it be a prick of a thorn or something milder." It was then that Hadhrat Ubay رضي الله عنه prayed to Allaah that fever should never leave him until his death but should not prevent him from Hajj, Umrah, Jihaad in the path of Allaah or salaah in congregation. Whenever someone touched him, the heat of the fever could be felt. This continued until the day he passed away.

    Hadhrat Ibn Seereen reports that Hadhrat Abu Mihjin Thaqafi رضي الله عنه was always being lashed for drinking wine. Eventually, when his drinking became too much, he was jailed and kept in fetters. When he saw the Muslims fighting the Battle of Qaadisiyyah, it appeared to him that the Mushrikeen were causing great harm to the Muslims. He therefore sent a message through the slave girl to the wife of (the Muslim commander) Hadhrat Sa'd bin Abi Waqqaas رضي الله عنه saying, "Abu Mihjin says that if you set him free, give him a horse and weapons, he will be the first to return to you (after the battle) if he is not martyred."

    He then recited the following couplets (which meant):

    "It is enough to make me grieve that a horse is carrying spears to the fight
    While I am left in fetters in the jailhouse
    When I stand up, my shackles restrain me
    All avenues to martyrdom have been closed to me as the caller (to Jihaad) makes me deaf"

    When the slave girl passed the message on to Hadhrat Sa'd رضي الله عنه's wife, she had his shackles removed, gave him a horse that was at home and some weapons. He then spurred the horse on until he reached the Muslim army. He killed every Mushrik soldier he met, breaking the man's back. When he saw this, Hadhrat Sa'd رضي الله عنه was astonished and asked, 'Who is that horseman?" It was not long thereafter that Allaah had the enemy defeated. Hadhrat Abu Mihjin رضي الله عنه then returned, gave the weapons back and secured his legs to the shackles as they had been.

    When Hadhrat Sa'd رضي الله عنه returned, his wife or slave girl asked, "How was the battle?" Informing them of the battle, Hadhrat Sa'd رضي الله عنه replied, "We were being defeated until Allaah sent a rider on a black and white horse. Had I not left Abu Mihjin رضي الله عنه here in shackles, I would have thought that certain features of the man were that of Abu Mihjin رضي الله عنه." The lady then said, "By Allaah! That was Abu Mihjin!" She then narrated the story to Hadhrat Sa'd رضي الله عنه. Hadhrat Sa'd رضي الله عنه called for Hadhrat Abu Mihjin رضي الله عنه, removed his shackles and said, "I swear by Allaah that I shall never again have you lashed for drinking wine." Hadhrat Abu Mihjin رضي الله عنه then said, "And I swear by Allaah that I shall never drink it again. I had been repeatedly drinking because of the lashings that you were giving me." He then never drank wine ever again.

    Another lengthy narration from Muhammad bin Sa'd states that after joining the Muslim army, every flank that Hadhrat Abu Mihjin رضي الله عنه attacked was defeated by the permission of Allaah. The Muslims gaped, "He must be an angel!" As Hadhrat Sa'd رضي الله عنه watched, he observed, "The horse's leap is that of (my horse) Balqaa and the man's style is that of Abu Mihjin. However, Abu Mihjin is in prison." When the enemy was defeated, Hadhrat Abu Mihjin رضي الله عنه returned secured his feet back in the shackles.

    When the daughter of Hasfah informed Hadhrat Sa'd رضي الله عنه about what had happened with Hadhrat Abu Mihjin رضي الله عنه, Hadhrat Sa'd رضي الله عنه said, "I swear by Allaah that I shall never again penalise the person through whom Allaah has granted honour to the Muslims." When Hadhrat Sa'd رضي الله عنه had set him free, Hadhrat Abu Mihjin رضي الله عنه said, "I always continued drinking when I was being punished because I would then be cleansed from the sin. Now that you have decided not to punish me, I swear by Allaah that I shall never drink wine ever again."

    In a narration of Hadhrat Sayf, other couplets are reported. The narration also states that Hadhrat Abu Mihjin رضي الله عنه fought extremely well and that he shouted "Allaahu Akbar" each time he attacked. No enemy soldier could stand before him as he massacred them. Although the Muslims were unable to recognise him, they marveled at his performance.

    Re: Our sahaba RA

    Hadhrat ummu Salama reports that two men from the Ansaar brought to Rasulullaah their dispute concerning some inheritance for which they could produce no evidence nor any witnesses. Rasulullaah said to them, "You are bringing your dispute to me when I can pass judgement only by my estimation in matters concerning which no revelation has come to me. Therefore, if I decide in the favour of someone because of his stronger case, thereby severing any right of his brother, he should not accept it. In that case, I would be apportioning for him a part of Jahannam. On the Day of Qiyaamah he will come with it as a yoke around his neck."

    The two men started weeping and each one of them said, "O Rasulullaah ! hand over my right to him." Rasulullaah said, "Since you want it that way, go and ponder about the right, divide it between yourselves and draw lots (to decide who should have which share). Each one of you should then permit his share for the other (so that none stands responsible for taking the right of the other)."

    Hadhrat Abu Sa'eed رضي الله عنه reports that a Bedouin once came to Rasulullaah to demand payment of a debt Rasulullaah owed to him. He behaved very harshly with Rasulullaah saying, "I shall continue plaguing you until you pay the debt!" The companions of Rasulullaah admonished the man saying, "Shame on you! Do you know with whom you are talking?!" The man said, "I am only asking for my right." Rasulullaah said to them, "Why are you not defending the one who has a right?"

    Rasulullaah then sent for Hadhrat Khowla bint Qais and asked her, "Borrow me some dates if you have any and I shall pay you back when I receive some dates." She said, "Most certainly! May my parents be sacrificed for you, O Rasulullaah !" She then borrowed the dates to Rasulullaah , with which he paid the Bedouin off together with something extra. The man then said, ''You have given me full payment, may Allaah give you in full." Rasulullaah then said, "They are the best of people (who support those with a right). There is no good in a nation whose weak people cannot claim their right without hesitation."

    The Narration of Hadhrat Khowla bint Qais in this Regard
    Hadhrat Khowla bint Qais who was the wife of Hadhrat Hamza bin Abdul Muttalib رضي الله عنه narrates, "Rasulullaah owed a wasaq of dates to a man from the Banu Saa'idah tribe. When the man came to claim repayment, Rasulullaah instructed someone from the Ansaar to pay it. When the Ansaari paid the man in dates which were of an inferior quality, he refused to accept it. The Ansaari said, "Are you refusing Rasulullaah ?" The man said, "Yes. Who is more worthy of exercising justice than Rasulullaah ?" Rasulullaah 's eyes welled with tears as he said, "He is right. Who is more worthy of exercising justice than me? May Allaah not bless a nation whose weak ones cannot claim their rights from their powerful ones and cannot demand them either." Rasulullaah then said, "O Khowla! Count and settle his debt because when a creditor is satisfied when he leaves his debtor, all creatures on earth and fish in the oceans pray for him (the debtor). However, when a debtor delays in paying when he has the means to pay, Allaah records a sin in his records for every day and night that passes (without him paying)."

    Re: Our sahaba RA

    Once Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was seated with the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) when he said: “A man from the people of Jannah will appear before you now.” Just then a man from the Ansaar came with his beard dripping of his left-over wudhu water. The same happen for three days consecutively.

    When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) left, ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) followed this Ansaari man and said to him: “I had an argument with my father and vowed not to go home for three days. Will you allow me to spend these three days at your place?” The man agreed to this. ‘Abdullah (radhiyallahu‘anhu) says that he spent those three nights with him (trying to ascertain what act of worship earned him this
    glad tiding) but he did not find him carrying out any extra acts of worship apart from the fact that he only heard him speaking good. After the three nights passed, ‘Abdullah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said to him: “O servant of Allah! I did not have any problem with my father. Rather the only reason for me spending these nights with you was to discover your special act of worship which has earned you the glad tiding I heard from Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). However, I haven’t seen you do any extra actions. Now please tell me what has taken you to such a position?” The man replied: “I don’t do anything other than what you have seen.” When ‘Abdullah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) left, he called him back and said: “The only thing extra is that I do not harbour any ill-feelings in my heart for any believer and I am not jealous of anyone for the good that Allah Ta‘ala blesses him with.” ‘Abdullah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said: “This is the reason for you reaching this position and this is the thing that we are unable to do.”

    Re: Our sahaba RA

    After the Battle of Badr was fought, Hazrat ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was among those taken prisoner by the Muslims. He was captured by an Ansaari Sahaabi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) during the battle. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had consulted the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) as to whether they should be released on ransom or be killed. A few Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) were of the opinion that they should be killed while the majority of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) felt that they should be released in exchange of some ransom. Eventually, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) decided that they should be released in exchange of ransom.

    Prior to this decision, the Ansaar intended to execute Hazrat Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) among the other prisoners. The news of their intention reached Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and it affected him to the point where he expressed, “I was unable to sleep last night due to worrying about my uncle, ‘Abbaas.” When Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) heard this, he asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “Should I go to the Ansaar and speak to them to hand ‘Abbaas over to me?”

    Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) granted permission to Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and he thus approached the Ansaar (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) and requested them to release Hazrat ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Initially, they did not know that the request was on behalf of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and so refused to release him. When they refused, Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) asked them, “If releasing him will be a means of you acquiring the pleasure of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), will you then do so?” They immediately responded, “If it will please Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), then we will wholeheartedly release him and you may take him immediately!”

    Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) then told them that he was sent by Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), and that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was unable to sleep the night on account of seeing his uncle in difficulty and distress. Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) then took Hazrat ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) from the Ansaar, and as he proceeded with him, he pleaded with him saying, “O ‘Abbaas! Please accept Islam! If you accept Islam, your accepting Islam will be more beloved to me than even my own father, Khattaab, accepting Islam. The reason for your accepting Islam pleasing me more than my own father, Khattaab, accepting Islam, is that this will greatly please Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).” Shortly thereafter, Hazrat ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) accepted Islam.
