The disbelievers of Makkah Mukarramah would torture Hazrat ‘Ammaar, Hazrat Suhaib, Hazrat Abu Faa’idah and Hazrat ‘Aamir bin Fuhairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) to such an extent that they would lose their senses and fall unconscious. This state of senselessness was so severe that they did not even realize what they were uttering.

In regard to such people, the following verse was revealed:

ثُمَّ اِنَّ رَبَّکَ لِلَّذِیۡنَ ہَاجَرُوۡا مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِ مَا فُتِنُوۡا ثُمَّ جٰہَدُوۡا وَ صَبَرُوۡۤا ۙ اِنَّ رَبَّکَ مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِہَا لَغَفُوۡرٌ رَّحِیۡمٌ ﴿۱۱۰﴾٪

Then, your Lord – for those who migrated after being persecuted and then fought in the way of Allah and stood patient – surely your Lord, after all, is Most-Forgiving and Merciful. (Surah Nahl v. 110)

This verse was revealed in regard to the abovementioned people.

Hazrat Suhaib bin Sinaan (radhiyallahu 'anhu) - Part Two

Written by

Just as the disbelievers of Makkah persecuted Hazrat ‘Ammaar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), they also subjected Hazrat Suhaib (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to various types of torture.

When he intended to perform hijrah to Madinah Munawwarah, the Quraish of Makkah said, “If you leave all your wealth and possessions in Makkah, you may go. Otherwise, we will not allow you to go.” Hazrat Suhaib (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) agreed to their demands, and abandoning the worthless possessions of this world, he migrated.

On arriving in Madinah Munawwarah, he related this incident to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) who said:

ربح البيع

Suhaib has struck a good bargain!

In other words, he exchanged the dunya which is temporary and perishable for the Aakhirah which is eternal and everlasting.

Hazrat Suhaib bin Sinaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part One

Written by

Hazrat Suhaib (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) hailed from an area that was in the vicinity of Mowsil. His father and uncle (father’s brother) were both appointed by Chosroes as governors over Ubullah.

On one occasion, the Romans launched an attack on this area. At that time, Hazrat Suhaib (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was still a young boy. During the looting and plundering, they seized him as a captive and took him to Rome. He thus grew up in Rome, and this is the reason why he was famously known as ‘Suhaib Roomi’ (Suhaib the Roman).

Eventually, a person of the Banu Kalb tribe purchased him from the Romans and brought him to Makkah Mukarramah. After arriving in Makkah Mukarramah, ‘Abdullah bin Jad‘aan purchased him and set him free.

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) commenced inviting towards Islam, Hazrat ‘Ammaar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Suhaib (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) both arrived at Daar-ul-Arqam at the same time and embraced Islam.

(Extracted from Seeratul Mustafa 1/227-228)

On one occasion, Hazrat ‘Ammaar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) removed his kurta and a few people noticed black scars covering his back. When they asked him how he had received these scars, he replied, “The Quraish of Makkah would make me lie on the scorching stones of the desert. These are the scars of those injuries.”

The same torture was inflicted upon his father, Hazrat Yaasir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and his mother, Hazrat Sumayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha).

The Greatest Imaan of this Ummah

In his very lifetime, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) bore testimony to the lofty and exalted position of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). In one Hadith, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned, “The one who has the most mercy for my ummah is Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).” (Sunan Tirmizi #3790)

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Twenty Six

Written by

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had a slave who would work and give him the profits.

One night, the slave presented Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) with some food that he had earned. As soon as the food was placed before him, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) picked up a morsel and began to eat. Seeing this, the slave was surprised and asked, “Generally, you ask me regarding the source of my income. How is it that on this occasion, you have not asked me?” Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “I was overcome by extreme hunger due to which I forgot to ask you. Tell me where you acquired this food from.”

Hazrat ‘Ammaar bin Yaasir (radhiyallahu 'anhu) - Part Two

Written by

Hazrat ‘Ammaar bin Yaasir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had no family or tribe in Makkah Mukarramah to protect him. Hence, the Quraish subjected him to different types of punishments and tortures.

At the peak of midday, they would lay him onto the burning sand and beat him until he would fall unconscious. At times, they would plunge his head into water and suffocate him, and at times, they would force him to lie on a bed of blazing coals.

Hazrat ‘Ammaar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was a man of Qahtaani decent. His father, Yaasir, came to Makkah Mukarramah in search of one of his missing brothers. His two brothers, Haarith and Maalik, also accompanied him on this journey.

Haarith and Maalik returned to Yemen while Yaasir decided to stay in Makkah Mukarramah. He then established an alliance with Abu Huzaifah Makhzoomi. Abu Huzaifah got him married to his slave woman, Sumayya bint Khayyaat, and it was from this union that Hazrat ‘Ammaar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was born.

Hazrat Bilaal bin Rabaah (radhiyallahu 'anhu) – Part Two

Written by

One day, while Hazrat Bilaal (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was being tortured as normal, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) happened to pass by. Witnessing this scene, his heart filled with pity. He addressed Umayyah (the master) saying:

ألا تتقي الله في هذا المسكين حتى متى أنت

Do you not fear Allah in regard to this poor man? How much longer will you continue torturing him?

عن عمر بن الخطاب رضي الله عنه أن رجلا جاء إلى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فسأله أن يعطيه فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ما عندي شيء ولكن ابتع علي فإذا جاءني شيء قضيته فقال عمر يا رسول الله قد أعطيته فما كلفك الله مالا تقدر عليه فكره صلى الله عليه وسلم قول عمر فقال رجل من الأنصار يا رسول الله أنفق ولا تخف من ذي العرش إقلالا فتبسم رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وعرف في وجهه البشر لقول الأنصاري ثم قال بهذا أمرت (الشمائل المحمدية رقم: 338)

Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that on one occasion, a needy person came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and then asked him to give him something. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “I do not have anything by me (at present to give you), but you may go and purchase something on my name (as a debt upon me). When I receive some wealth, I will settle the debt.” Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said, “O Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! You have already given him (prior to this, what you had possessed). Allah Ta‘ala did not make you responsible for that which you do not have ability over (on account of which you do not need to allow him to take a debt on your name).” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was not pleased with this statement (and advice) of Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Thereupon, a person from the Ansaar said, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), spend whatever you wish, and do not fear any decrease from the Lord of the ‘Arsh (Throne).” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) smiled and the happiness could be seen on his mubaarak countenance due to the statement of the Ansaari. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then said, “This is exactly what I have been commanded to do (by Allah Ta‘ala).”
