CHAPTER: IN PROOF OF THE MARTYR'S ATTAINING PARADISE  

No. 4678

It has been reported on the authority of Jabir that a man said: Messenger of Allaah, where shall I be if I am killed? He replied: In Paradise. The man threw away the dates he had in his hand and fought until he was killed (i. e. he did not wait until he could finish the dates).

In the version of the tradition narrated by Suwaid we have the words:" A man said to the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam). on the day of Uhud......"

No. 4679

It has been reported on the authority of Bara! ' who stated: A man from Banu Nabit (one of the Ansar tribes) came to the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and said: I testify that there is none worthy of worship (in truth) except Allaah and that thou art His bondman and Messenger. Then he went forward and fought until he was killed. The Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: He has done a little but shall be given a great reward.

No. 4680

It has been reported on the authority of Anas b. Malik who said: The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) sent Busaisah as a scout to see what the caravan of Abu Sufyan was doing. He came (back and met the Prophet in his house) where there was nobody except myself and the Messenger of Allaah. I do not remember whether he (Hadrat Anas) made an exception of some wives of the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) or not and told him the news of the caravan. (Having heard the news), the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) came out (hurriedly), spoke to the people and said: We are in need (of men) ; whoever has an animal to ride upon ready with him should ride with us. People began to ask him permission for bringing their riding animals which were grazing on the hillocks near Medina. He said: No. (I want) only those who have their riding animals ready. So the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and his Companions proceeded towards Badr and reached there forestalling the polytheists (of Mecca). When the polytheists (also) reached there, the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: None of you should step forward to (do) anything unless I am ahead of him. The polytheists (now) advanced (towards us), and the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said. Get up to enter Paradise which is equal in width to the heavens and the earth. 'Umair b. al- Humam al-Ansari said: Messenger of Allaah, is Paradise equal in extent to the heavens and the earth? He said: Yes. 'Umair said: My goodness! The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) asked him: What prompted you to utter these words (i. e. my goodness! ')? He said: Messenger of Allaah, nothing but the desire that I be among its residents. He said: Thou art (surely) amona its residents. He took out dates from his bag and began to eat them. Then he said: If I were to live until I have eaten all these dates of mine, it would be a long life. (The narrator said): He threw away all the dates he had with him. Then he fought the enemies until he was killed.

No. 4681

The tradition has been narrated on the authority of 'Abdullah b. Qais. He heard it from his father who, while facing the enemy, reported that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Surely, the gates of Paradise are under the shadows of the swords. A man in a shabby condition got up and said; Abu Musa, did you hear the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) say this? He said: Yes. (The narrator said): He returned to his friends and said: I greet you (a farewell greeting). Then he broke the sheath of his sword, threw it away, advanced with his (naked) sword towards the enemy and fought (them) with it until he was slain.

No. 4682

It has been reported on the authority of Anas b. Malik that some people came to the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and said to him: Send with us some men who may teach us the Qur'an and the Sunnah. Accordingjy, he sent seventy men from the Ansar. They were called the Reciters and among them was my maternal uncle. Haram. They used to recite the Qur'an, discuss and ponder over its meaning at night. In the day they brought water and poured it (in pitchers) in the mosque, collected wood and sold it, and with the sale proceeds bought food for the people of the Suffa and the needy. The Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) sent the Reciters with these people, but these (treacherous people) fell upon them and killed thern before they reached their destination (While dying), they said: O Allaah, convey from us the news to our Prophet that we have met Thee (in a way) that we are pleased with Thee and Thou art pleased with us. (The narrator said): A man attacked Haram (maternal uncle of Anas) ) from behind and smote him with a spear which pierced him. (While dying), Haram said: By the Lord of the Ka'ba, I have met with success. The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said to his Companions: Your brethren have been slain grid they were saying: O Allaah, convey from us to our Prophet the news that we have met Thee in a way that we are pleased with Thee and Thou art pleased with us.

No. 4683

It has been Deported on the authority of Anas who said: My uncle and I have been named after him was not present with the Messenger of Allaah (mav sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) on the Day of Badr. He felt distressed about it. He would say: I have missed the first battle fought by the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam), and if God now gives me an opportunity to see a battlefield with the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam), God will see what I do therein. He was afraid to say more than this (lest he be unable to keep his word with God). He was present with the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) on the Day of Uhud. He met Sa'd b. Mu'adh (who was retreating). Anas said to him: O Abu 'Amr, where (are you going)? Woe (to thee)! I find the smell of Paradise beside the Uhud mountain. (Reprimanding Sa'd in these words) he went forward and fought thein (the enemy) until he was killed. (The narrator says). More than eighty wounds inflicted with swords, spears and arrows were found on his body. His sister, my aunt, ar-Rubayyi', daughter of Nadr, said: I could not recognise my brother's body (it was so badly mutilated) except from his finger-tips. (It was on this occasion that) the Qur'anic verse:" Among the Believers are men who have been true to their covenant with God. Of them some have completed their vow (to the extreme), and some still wait: but they have never changed (their determination) in the least" (xxxiii. 23).

The narrator said that the verse had been revealed about him (Anas b. Nadr) and his Companions.
