Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu 'anhu) - Part Twelve

Written by

Responding to the Call of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) After the Battle of Uhud

اَلَّذِیۡنَ اسۡتَجَابُوۡا لِلّٰہِ وَ الرَّسُوۡلِ مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِ مَاۤ اَصَابَہُمُ الۡقَرۡحُ ؕۛ لِلَّذِیۡنَ اَحۡسَنُوۡا مِنۡہُمۡ وَ اتَّقَوۡا اَجۡرٌ عَظِیۡمٌ ﴿۱۷۲﴾ۚ

Of those who answered the call of Allah and the Messenger, even after being wounded, for those among them who do good and refrain from wrong is a great reward

Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) mentioned the following to ‘Urwah (rahimahullah) regarding the above verse of the Qur’aan Majeed, “O my nephew! Both your fathers (ancestors), Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), were among the group regarding whom Allah Ta‘ala speaks about in this verse. When difficulty had befallen Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) on the Day of Uhud (due to the disbelievers attacking the Muslims and thereafter) the disbelievers had departed, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) feared that they may return (to try and attack the Muslims once more). Hence, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) announced, “Who will go after them (i.e. the disbelievers)?”

Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu 'anhu) - Part Eleven

Written by

‘Urwah (rahimahullah) narrates that Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said, “During the battle of Ahzaab (also known as the Battle of Khandaq), ‘Umar bin abi Salamah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and I were made to remain back with the women in the fortress of Hassaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). We would then take turns to lift one another so that we could see out of the fort. When I looked out of the fort, I saw Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) astride his horse, going and returning from the Banu Quraizah two or three times. After he returned, I said to him, “O my father! I saw you going back and forth.” In reply, Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) asked, “O my son! Did you really see me?” When I replied that I had seen him, he said, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had asked, ‘Who will go to the Banu Quraizah and bring information to me regarding them?” I responded to the request of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and immediately set out for the Banu Quraizah. On my return, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) gathered both his parents in the du‘aa he made for me saying, “May my father and mother be sacrificed for you!”

Steadfastness on Islam

Abul Aswad narrates the following: Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had accepted Islam at the age of eight, and made hijrah at the age of eighteen. His uncle would suspend him in a pen and would light a fire so that he would suffer from the smoke.

Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was among those Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) who made Hijrah to Abyssinia to escape the persecution of the Quraish. However, he did not remain long in Abyssinia.

Wounds in the Path of Allah Ta‘ala

Hafs bin Khaalid (rahimahullah) narrates that an old man who arrived from Mowsil had told him the following:

I once accompanied Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) on one of his journeys. During the course of the journey, while we were in an open, barren land, Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) needed to perform fardh ghusl. He thus said to me, “Conceal me (with a cloth so that I may perform ghusl).” I thus concealed him, and while concealing him, I caught a glimpse of the scars on his upper body from being struck by swords. I thus said to him, “By Allah! I have seen such scars on your body which I have never before seen on anyone else!” Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) asked me, “Did you see them?” When I replied that I had indeed seen the scars, he said, “By Allah! Know that there is no scar on my body except that I received it in the company of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) while striving in the path of Allah Ta‘ala.

(Tahzeeb-ul-Kamaal 9/321)

Hishaam bin ‘Urwah (rahimahullah) narrates, “Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had received three major wounds on his body from being struck by swords. One was on his shoulder, and (it was so big that) I would insert my fingers into it (the hole that was left after the wound healed). Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) received two wounds on the Day of Badr and one on the Day of Yarmuk.”

Hazrat ‘Urwah bin Zubair (rahimahullah) narrates the following:

Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) accepted Islam at the age of eight. On one occasion, Shaitaan caused a false rumor to spread that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had been seized and captured by the Kuffaar in the upper area of Makkah Mukarramah.

All who saw Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) were surprised and remarked, “The youngster is carrying a sword!” When he reached Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked him, “What is the matter, o Zubair?” Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied by informing Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) of the false rumor that had spread and said, “I came to strike those who seized you with my sword.”

Receiving the title ‘Special Helper’ of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)
