Hazrat Sa'd (radhiyallahu 'anhu) - Part Nine

Written by

Archery:

Hazrat Sa‘eed bin Musayyib (rahimahullah) has mentioned, “Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was an excellent archer.” (Taareekh-ul-Islam 4/216)

Imaam Zuhri (rahimahullah) has mentioned, “During the Battle of Uhud, Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) killed three disbelievers with the same arrow that was fired at him three times. The disbelievers had initially fired the arrow. Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) took the arrow and fired it back at the disbelievers, killing one of them. The disbelievers then fired the same arrow back, after which Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) took it and fired it back at them, killing another disbeliever. The disbelievers then fired the same arrow back for a third time. Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) took the arrow and fired it back at them, killing a third disbeliever. Seeing that Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had killed three disbelievers with the same arrow, the people were amazed.

Written by

Jihaad:

Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had mentioned, “I participated in the Battle of Badr at a time when I had only one strand of hair on my face. Later on, Allah Ta‘ala blessed me with a beard.

(ibn Sa’d 3/105, Siyar A’laam min Nubalaa 3/62)

Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had participated in the Battles of Badr and Uhud, and he was among the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) who remained firm with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) during the Battle of Uhud when (the enemy attacked from the rear and killed many Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), due to which there was much confusion and) many Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) turned away from the battlefield.

The Special Du‘aa of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam):

Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah bint Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anha), the daughter of Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), narrates the following from Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu):

During the Battle of Uhud, (when the enemy had attacked from the rear and many Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) were killed on the battlefield,) the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) could not find Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and were moving about in confusion. At that time, I moved aside and said to myself, “I will continue to fight the kuffaar and defend my life. In the process of fighting, I will either gain martyrdom or Allah Ta‘ala will allow me to remain. If I survive this battle then surely I will get to meet Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).”

The First Arrow Fired for Islam

Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was part of the army that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had sent under Hazrat ‘Ubaidah bin Haarith (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to Raabigh in order to intercept the caravan of the Quraish. During this expedition, the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) and the Quraish fired arrows at one another, and the first Muslim to fire an arrow in the path of Allah was Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).

Hazrat Sa'd (radhiyallahu 'anhu) - Part Five

Written by

The First Blood Shed for the Cause of Islam

Muhammed bin Ishaaq (rahimahullah) narrates:

The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would (in the early days of Islam) go into the valleys when performing Salaah so that they would be able to keep their Salaah hidden from the disbelievers (and thus avoid persecution). Once, while Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was with a group of Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) in one of the valleys of Makkah Mukarramah, a group of disbelievers discovered them and began to condemn the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) and criticize their Deen. This led to a fight breaking out between these Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) and the disbelievers, during which Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) inflicted a head wound to one of the disbelievers by striking his skull with the jaw bone of a camel. This was the first fight (from the beginning of Islam wherein the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) wounded the kuffaar and) in which blood was shed for the cause of Islam. (Usdul Ghaabah 2/308)

Hazrat Sa'd (radhiyallahu 'anhu) - Part Four

Written by

Hijrah

When Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and his brother, Hazrat ‘Umair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), the two sons of Abu Waqqaas, performed Hijrah from Makkah Mukarramah to Madinah Munawwarah, they stayed in the home and orchard of their brother, ‘Utbah bin Abi Waqqaas. ‘Utbah had built his home among the Banu ‘Amr bin ‘Auf clan. ‘Utbah had shed a person’s blood in Makkah Mukarramah and had thus fled to Madinah Munawwarah where he settled among the Banu ‘Amr bin ‘Auf clan. This was before the incident of Bu‘aath (the battle between the Aws and Khazraj tribes of Madinah Munawwarah). (ibn Sa’d 3/103)

Note:

1. Hazrat ‘Umair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), the brother of Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), was martyred in the Battle of Badr at the age of sixteen. (Isaabah 4/602)

2. ‘Utbah bin Abi Waqqaas did not accept Islam. In fact, he was responsible for breaking a portion of the blessed tooth of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) during the Battle of Uhud. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had cursed him and before the year could terminate, he died on disbelief. (Isaabah 5/197)

Hazrat Sa'd (radhiyallahu 'anhu) - Part Three

Written by

Abu ‘Uthmaan (rahimahullah) narrates that Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said:

The following verse of the Qur’aan Majeed was revealed in my regard:

وَ وَصَّیۡنَا الۡاِنۡسَانَ بِوَالِدَیۡہِ حُسۡنًا ؕ وَ اِنۡ جَاہَدٰکَ لِتُشۡرِکَ بِیۡ مَا لَیۡسَ لَکَ بِہٖ عِلۡمٌ فَلَا تُطِعۡہُمَا ؕ

We have enjoined upon man kindness to parents. And if they (your disbelieving parents) force you to join partners with Me (in My worship) that of which you do not have knowledge, then do not obey them.

 

I was very obedient to my mother. When I accepted Islam, she said, “O Sa’d! What is this religion that you have innovated? You will either leave this religion, or I will neither speak to you, nor eat nor drink until I die. You will then bear the blame of my death as people will call you ‘the one who killed his mother’.” I replied, “O my mother! Do not do this! I will not leave this religion of mine for anything!”

My mother then remained for one day and night (and according to some narrations, three days and nights) without eating or drinking until she became extremely weak. When I saw her in this condition, I said to her, “O my mother! By Allah! Know that if you had a hundred lives and you lost them all, one by one, I would not leave my religion. If you wish, then eat. Otherwise, do not eat.” When the mother of Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) saw his determination and devotion to Islam, she realized that he would never renounce Islam and she thus began to eat.

Dream Before Accepting Islam

Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates:

Prior to accepting Islam, I had a dream in which I saw that I was in absolute darkness and was unable to see anything. Suddenly, a moon illuminated the night and I began to follow it. In the dream, I saw those who had preceded me to this moon. I could see Hazrat Zaid bin Haarithah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat ‘Ali bin Abi Taalib (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). I asked them, “When did you arrive here?” They replied, “Just this moment.” I later on learnt that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was secretly inviting to Islam. I thus met him in the valleys of the mountains of Makkah Mukarramah. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had just performed Salaah. I then accepted Islam, and none besides these Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) had preceded me in accepting Islam (Note: This Sahaabi mentioned this according to his knowledge. Otherwise, it is proven in other narrations that there were a few other Sahaabah who accepted Islam before him).”

Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu 'anhu) - Part Seventeen

Written by

Barakah in his Wealth Even after his Demise (continued)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) continues:

In this manner, Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) sold some of their wealth (comprising of some portions of Ghaabah as well a few other properties) and completely settled the debts. (After settling the debts) four and a half shares of Ghaabah still remained. Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) thus went to Hazrat Mu‘aawiyah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) while ‘Amr bin ‘Uthmaan, Munzir bin Zubair and ibn Zam‘ah were with Hazrat Mu‘aawiyah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Hazrat Mu‘aawiyah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) asked Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), “How much has Ghaabah been valued at?” Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) answered, “Every share is worth one hundred thousand.” Hazrat Mu‘aawiyah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) next asked, “How many shares remain?” Hazrat ‘Abdullah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “Four and a half.” Hearing this, Munzir bin Zubair said, “I take one share for one hundred thousand”, ‘Amr bin ‘Uthmaan said, “I take one share for one hundred thousand”, and ibn Zam‘ah said, “I take one share for one hundred thousand.” After they had each purchased their shares, Hazrat Mu‘aawiyah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) asked, “How many shares remain?” When Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) informed him that one and a half shares remained, he said, “I take it for one hundred and fifty thousand.”
