Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu 'anhu) - Part Seven

Written by

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.”

The First Person to Draw his Sword for the Sake of Allah

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. When he heard this rumor, Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), who was only twelve years old at the time, immediately set out , parting the people with his sword in his search for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). 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)

On the occasion of the Battle of Ahzaab, also known as the Battle of Khandaq (the Battle of the Trench), the Muslims received the information that the Banu Quraizah had broken their pledge of allegiance to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and had joined the enemy. In order to verify the information, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), “Who will bring me information of these people (the Banu Quraizah)?” Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) instantly responded by volunteering to go as a spy and bring information of the Banu Quraizah to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Glad Tidings of Martyrdom

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was once on Mount Hiraa when it began to shake.

For only a Nabi, a siddeeq, and a martyr stands upon you.” When this incident transpired, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was on the mountain with Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat Talhah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Sa’d bin abi Waqqaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) .

Caution in Narrating Hadith from Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that he once asked his father, Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), “Why do you not narrate the Ahaadeeth of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), as such-and-such Sahaabah (radhiyallahu 'anhum) narrate?” Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “I did not leave Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) after accepting Islam (I am thus able to narrate many Ahaadeeth). However, on one occasion, I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mention something (due to which I fear quoting Ahaadeeth). I heard him (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) say, “The one who deliberately lies against me (fabricates Ahaadeeth and attributes them to me) should prepare his abode in the Hellfire.”

Naming his Sons after Martyrs:

Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) once mentioned:

“Indeed Talhah bin ‘Ubaidillah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) names his sons after the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam), although he knows that that there will be no Nabi after Nabi Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). I name my sons after martyrs so that my sons may perhaps also be blessed with martyrdom.”

The second narration describing the demise of Hazrat Abu Zar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) is as follows:

When Hazrat Abu Zar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had neared his end, his wife began to cry. “What makes you cry?” he asked her. She replied, “I am crying because there is nobody to help me bury you and I do not have sufficient cloth to enshroud you.” Hazrat Abu Zar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) responded, “Do not cry, for verily I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying to a group of people which included me, “One of you will most definitely pass away in a deserted place. A group of believers will be present by him (at the time of his death).” There is no person from that group except that he has already passed away in a village and a group of believers. I am the one who is passing away in a deserted place. Keep a watch on the road for you will soon see what I mentioned to you regarding the group of believers. Verily, by the oath of Allah, neither do I lie through these words and nor did Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) lie when he mentioned this to me.”

The Prophecy of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) regarding Hazrat Abu Zar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) Passing Away Alone

Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas‘ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates:

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) departed for Tabook, some people began to remain behind in order to abandon the expedition. As this would happen, the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) would inform Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! So and so has remained behind.” On hearing this, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would say, “Leave him. If there is any good in him then he will soon join us. If there is no good in him then Allah Ta‘ala has relieved you of his presence.” This continued until someone eventually called out to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Hazrat Abu Zar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) has remained behind on account of his camel not being able to move.”
