Ramadan 2010 (Pearls of Light)


A Disabled Sahaabi Enters Jannah

Hazrat Amr bin Jamooh Ansaari (R.A) was a disabled companion who made the following dua while exiting his house prior to battle, “O’ Allah (S.W.T)! Do not grant me return to my family from the war.”

His four sons were also present with him in Jihad. People tried to stop him from joining the battle as he was disabled. Nevertheless, Hazrat Amr (R.A) went to the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) and asked, "Ya Rasoolullah (S.A.W), allow me to participate in the war as this disabled one desires to enter Jannah as a Shaheed (Martyr)." Hearing this passionate plea, Rasoolullah (S.A.W) granted him permission.

Hazrat Amr (R.A) could not contain the bliss of this and fought the mushrikeen relentlessly with one of his son by his side. Hazrat Abu Talha (R.A) states, "I saw Hazrat Amr bin Jamooh (R.A) as he entered the battlefield. 'Oath on Allah (S.W.T)! I crave Jannah!' I heard him saying." Both father and son fought the mushrikeen with much zeal until both became Shaheed (Martyrs).

The wife of Hazrat Amr bin Jamooh (R.A) later brought a camel after the battle on which she placed the body of her husband, brother and son to be buried in Madina Shareef, yet the camel would not move, but preferred to remain on the battlefield.

She approached Rasoolullah (S.A.W) about this, who asked whether she had heard her husband say anything while leaving his house. Hazrat e Hind (R.A) replied, "Yes! He made the following dua whilst leaving the house, 'O Allah (S.W.T)! Do not make me return to my family after the war." Rasoolullah (S.A.W) then said, "That's why the camel doesn’t move towards Madina." (Madaarij, Vol.2)

The Patience of an Ansaariyah Woman

There was a woman of the Ansaar tribe whose husband, father, brother and other members of her family had taken part in the Battle of Uhud, and was told that all of them had become Shaheed (Martyr).

Despite receiving the news of her family members, the only question she asked was “What's the condition of Rasoolullah (S.A.W)”. After being told that the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) was safe, she praised Allah's (S.W.T) protection of His Beloved, Sayyiduna Muhammadur Rasoolullah (S.A.W).

Allahu Akbar! What can be said of the Ansaariyah woman's patience and courage? Though mountains of sorrow had fallen on her, her only concern was the well-being of Holy Prophet (S.A.W). The incident can be summarised as follows,

"My father, husband, brother and I may be sacrificed, (But) Ya Rasoolullah (S.A.W), your existence is all that we desire." (Tabri, Pg. 1425)
