      Abu hurayra, one day was passing by the suq of Maddinah and naturally saw people engrossed in the business of buying and selling.Â*

      "How feeble are you , O people of Madinnah" he saidÂ*
      " what do you see that is feeble in us, Abu Hurayra?" They asked

      "The inheritence of muhammed, peace be upon him, being distributed and you remain here!Â*
      Won't you go and take your portion? "

      "Where is this, O Abu Hurayra?" They askedÂ*

      "In the masjid." He replied.

      Quickly they left. Abu Hurayra waited until they returned. When they saw him, they said " O Abu Hurayra we went to the masjid and entered and we didn't see anything being distributed.Â*

      "Didn't you see anyone in the masjid?" He askedÂ*


      "O,yes we saw some people performing Salah, some people reading Quran and some people discussing Â*about what is halal and what is haram" they answered.Â*

      " Woe unto you" replied Abu Hurayra.Â*
      Â*" this is the inheritence of Muhammed, May Allah bless him and grant him peace".

          the sahaba Julaybeeb radi allahu anhu
          His name was unusual and incomplete. Julaybib (Radhi Allaahu Anhu) means “small grown” being the diminutive form of the word “Jalbab.” The name is an indication that Julaybib was small and short, even of dwarf-like stature. More than that, he is described as being “damim” which means ugly, deformed, or of repulsive appearance. Even more disturbing, for the society in which he lived, Julaybib’s lineage was not known. There is no record of who his mother of his father was or to what tribe he belonged. This was a grave disability in the society in which he lived. Julaybib could not expect any compassion or help, any protection or support from a society that placed a great deal of importance on family and tribal connections. In this regard, all that was known of him was that he was an Arab and that, as far as the new community of Islam was concerned, he was one of the Ansar. Perhaps he belonged to one of the outlying tribes beyond Madinah and had drifted into the city or he could have even been from among the Ansar of the city itself.

          The disabilities under which Julaybib lived would have been enough to have him ridiculed and shunned in any society and in fact he was prohibited by one person, a certain Abu Barzah of the Aslam tribe, from entering his home. He once told his wife: “Do not let Julaybib enter among you. If he does, I shall certainly do (something terrible to him).” Probably because he was teased and scoffed at in the company of men, Julaybib used to take refuge in the company of women. Was there any hope of Julaybib being treated with respect and consideration? Was there any hope of his finding emotional satisfaction as an individual and as a man? Was there any hope of his enjoying the relationships which others take for granted? And in the society emerging under the guidance of the Prophet, was he so insignificant as to be overlooked in the preoccupation with the great affairs of the state and in the supreme issues of life and survival which constantly engaged the attention of the Prophet?

          Just as he was aware of the great issues of life and destiny, the Prophet of Mercy (Sallalaahu Alaihi wa Sallam) was also aware of the needs and sensibilities of his most humble companions. With Julaybib in mind, the Prophet (Sallalaahu Alaihi wa Sallam) went to one of the Ansar and said: “I want to have your daughter married.” “How wonderful and blessed, O Messenger of Allah and what a delight to the eye (this would be),” replied the Ansari man with obvious joy and happiness. “I do not want her for myself,” added the Prophet (Sallalaahu Alaihi wa Sallam). “Then for whom, O Messenger of Allah?” asked the man, obviously somewhat let down. “For Julaybib,” said the Prophet. The Ansari must have been too shocked to give his own reaction and he merely said: “I will consult with her mother.” And off he went to his wife. “The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, wants to have your daughter married,” he said to her. She too was thrilled. “What a wonderful idea and what a delight to the eye (this would be),” she said. “He does not want to marry her himself but he wants to marry her to Julaybib,” he added. She was flabbergasted.

          “To Julaybib! No, never to Julaybib! No, by Allah, we shall not marry (her) to him,” she protested. As the Ansari was about to return to the Prophet (Sallalaahu Alaihi wa Sallam) to inform him of what his wife had said, the daughter who had heard her mother’s protestations, asked: “Who has asked you to marry me?” Her mother told her of the Prophet’s request for her hand in marriage to Julaybib. When she heard that the request had come from the Prophet (Sallalaahu Alaihi wa Sallam) and that her mother was absolutely opposed to the idea, she was greatly perturbed and said: “Do you refuse the request of the Messenger of Allah? Send me to him for he shall certainly not bring ruin to me.” This was the reply of a truly great person who had a clear understanding of what was required of her as a Muslim. What greater satisfaction and fulfillment can a Muslim find than in responding willingly to the requests and commands of the Messenger of Allah! No doubt, this companion of the Prophet, whose name we do not even know had heard the verse of the Quran:

          “It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed in a plain error.” (The Qur’an, Surah al-Ahzab, 33:36)

          This verse was revealed in connection with the marriage of Zaynab bint Jahsh and Zayd ibn al-Harithah which was arranged by the Prophet (Sallalaahu Alaihi wa Sallam) to show the egalitarian spirit of Islam. Zaynab at first was highly offended at the thought of marrying Zayd a former slave and refused to do so. The Prophet prevailed upon them both and they were married. The marriage however ended in divorce and Zaynab was eventually married to the Prophet (Sallalaahu Alaihi wa Sallam) himself. It is said that the Ansari girl read the verse to her parents and said: “I am satisfied and submit myself to whatever the Messenger of Allah deems good for me.” The Prophet (Sallalaahu Alaihi wa Sallam) heard of her reaction and prayed for her: “O Lord, bestow good on her in abundance and make not her life one of toil and trouble.” Among the Ansaar, it is said that there was not a more eligible bride than she. She was married by the Prophet to Julaybib and they lived together until he was killed.

          And how was Julaybib killed? He went on an expedition with the Prophet (Sallalaahu Alaihi wa Sallam), peace be upon him, and an encounter with some mushrikin (polytheists) ensued. When the battle was over, the Prophet (Sallalaahu Alaihi wa Sallam) asked his companions: “Have you lost anyone?” They replied giving the names of their relatives or close friends who were killed. He put the same questions to other companions and they also named the ones they had lost in the battle. Another group answered that they had lost no close relatives whereupon the Prophet (Sallalaahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: “But I have lost Julaybib. Search for him in the battlefield.” They searched and found him beside seven mushrikin whom he had struck before meeting his end. The Prophet (Sallalaahu Alaihi wa Sallam) stood up and went to the spot where Julaybib, his short and deformed companion, lay. He stood over him and said: “He killed seven and then was killed? This (man) is of me and I am of him.” He repeated this two or three times. The Prophet (Sallalaahu Alaihi wa Sallam) then took him in his arms and it is said that he had no better bed besides the forearms of the Messenger of Allah. The Prophet (Sallalaahu Alaihi wa Sallam) then dug for him a grave and himself placed him in it. He did not wash him for martyrs and not washed before burial.

          Julaybib and his wife are not usually among the Companions of the Prophet whose deeds are sung and whose exploits are recounted with reverence and admiration as they should be. But in the meagre facts that are known about them and which have here been recounted we see how humble human beings were given hope and dignity by the Prophet (Sallalaahu Alaihi wa Sallam) where once they was only despair and self-debasement. The attitude of the unknown and unnamed Ansari girl who readily agreed to be the wife of a physically unattractive man was an attitude which reflected a profound understanding of Islam. It reflected on her path the effacement of personal desires and preferences even when she could have counted on the support of her parents. It reflected on her part a total disregard for social pressures. It reflected above all a ready and implicit confidence in the wisdom and authority of the Prophet (Sallalaahu Alaihi wa Sallam) in submitting herself to whatever he deemed good. This is the attitude of the true believer.

          In Julaybib, there is the example of a person who was almost regarded as a social outcast because of his appearance. Given help, confidence and encouragement by the noble Prophet, he was able to perform acts of courage and make the supreme sacrifice and deserve the commendation of the Prophet: “He is of me and I am of him.”

          Transcribed from: Da’wah Publications, Issue #7, July 2008

          ———————

          Sahih Muslim Book 031, Number 6045:

          Abu Barza reported that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) was there in a battlefield that Allah conferred upon him the spoils of war. He said to his Companions: Is anyone missing amongst you? They said: So and so and so. He again said: Is there anyone missing amongst you? They said: So and so and so. He then said: Is there anyone missing amongst you? They said: No. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: But I am missing Julaibib. They (his Companions) searched him amongst those who had been killed and they found him by the side of seven (dead bodies) whom he had killed and he had been killed (by the oppoments). Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) came there and stood (by his side) and said: He killed seven (persons). Then (his opponents) killed him. He is mine and I am his. He then placed him upon his hands and there was none else to lift but Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him). Then the grave was dug for him and he was placed in the grave and no mention is made of a bath.

          —————-

          The following is from Tafseer Ibn Kathir

          33. Surah Al-Ahzab

          Imam Ahmad recorded that Abu Barzah Al-Aslami said: “Julaybib was a man who used to enter upon women and joke with them. I said to my wife, `Do not let Julaybib enter upon you, for if he enters upon you I shall do such and such.’ If any of the Ansar had a single female relative, they would not arrange a marriage for her until they found out whether the Prophet wanted to marry her or not. The Prophet said to one of the Ansar:

          «زَوِّجْنِي ابْنَتَك»

          (Give me your daughter for marriage.) He said, `Yes, O Messenger of Allah, it would be an honor and a blessing.’ He said,

          «إِنِّي لَسْتُ أُرِيدُهَا لِنَفْسِي»

          (I do not want her for myself.) He said, `Then for whom, O Messenger of Allah’ He said,

          «لِجُلَيْبِيب»

          (For Julaybib.) He said, `O Messenger of Allah, let me consult her mother.’ So he went to the girl’s mother and said, `The Messenger of Allah is proposing marriage for your daughter.’ She said, `Yes, it would be a pleasure.’ He said, `He is not proposing to marry her himself, he is proposing on behalf of Julaybib.’ She said, `What! Julaybib No, by Allah, we will not marry her to him.’ When he wanted to get up and go to the Messenger of Allah to tell him what the girl’s mother had said, the girl asked, `Who is asking for my hand’ So her mother told her, and she said, `Are you refusing to follow the command of the Messenger of Allah Follow his command, for I will not come to any harm.’ So her father went to the Messenger of Allah and said, `Deal with her as you wish.’ So he married her to Julaybib. Then the Messenger of Allah went out on one of his military campaigns, and after Allah had granted him victory, he said to his Companions, may Allah be pleased with them,

          «هَلْ تَفْقِدُونَ مِنْ أَحَد»

          (See whether there is anybody missing.) They said, `We have lost so-and-so, and so-and-so.’ He said,

          «انْظُرُوا هَلْ تَفْقِدُونَ مِنْ أَحَد»

          (See if there is anybody missing.) They said, `No one.’ He said:

          «لَكِنَّنِي أَفْقِدُ جُلَيْبِيبًا»

          (But I see that Julaybib is missing.) He said:

          «فَاطْلُبُوهُ فِي الْقَتْلَى»

          (Go and look for him among the dead.) So they looked for him, and found him beside seven of the enemy whom he had killed before he was himself killed. They said, `O Messenger of Allah, here he is, beside seven of the enemy whom he had killed before he was himself killed.’ The Messenger of Allah came and stood beside him and said,

          «قَتَلَ سَبْعَةً وَقَتَلُوهُ، هَذَا مِنِّي وَأَنَا مِنْه»

          (He killed seven before he was himself killed. He belongs to me and I belong to him.) He said this two or three times, then the Messenger of Allah carried him in his arms and held him while his grave was dug, then he placed him in his grave. It was not mentioned that he washed him, may Allah be pleased with him.” Thabit, may Allah be pleased with him, said: “There was no widow among the Ansar who was more sought after for marriage than that girl.” Ishaq bin `Abdullah bin Abi Talhah asked Thabit, “Do you know how the Messenger of Allah prayed for that girl” He told him: “He said,

          «اللَّهُمَّ صُبَّ عَلَيْهَا الْخَيْرَ صَبًّا وَلَا تَجْعَلْ عَيْشَهَا كَدًّا»

          (O Allah, pour blessings upon her and do not make her life hard.) And this is how it was; there was no widow among the Ansar who was more sought after for marriage than her.” This is how it was recorded by Imam Ahmad, in full.

            Talha Ibn Ubaydullah, "The name of 'the Living Martyr' was earned during the Battle of 'Uhud. Talhah had missed the Battle of Badr. He and Sa'id ibn Zayd had been sent outside Madinah on a mission by the Prophet and when they returned, the Prophet and his Companions were already on the way back from Badr. They were both sad at having missed the opportunity of taking part in the first campaign with the Prophet but were tremendously pleased when he told them they would get the same reward as those who actually fought.

            "At the Battle of 'Uhud, when the Muslims fell into disarray at the beginning of hostilities, the Prophet became dangerously exposed. There were about eleven men of the Ansar at his side and one Muhajir: Talhah ibn Ubaydullah. The Prophet, sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam, shouted,'The one who repulses these people from us will be my companion in Paradise.'

            "'I will, O Messenger of Allah,' shouted Talhah.

            "'No, stick to your position,'replied the Prophet. A man from the Ansarvolunteered and the Prophet agreed. He fought until he was killed. The Prophet went further up the mountain with themushrikin still in close pursuit. 'Isn't there someone to combat them?'he asked. Talhah again volunteered but the Prophet ordered him to maintain his position. Another person immediately came forward, fought and was killed. This continued until everyone who stood by the Prophet was martyred except Talhah.

            "'Now, yes,' signalled the Prophet, and Talhah went into battle. By this time, the Prophet's tooth had been broken, his forehead slashed, his lips wounded and blood was streaming down his face. He was drained of energy. Talhah plunged into the enemy and pushed them away from the Prophet. He turned back to the Prophet and helped him a little further up the mountain and put him to lie on the ground. He then renewed his attack and successfully repulsed the enemy. About this occasion Abu Bakr said, 'At that moment, Abu Ubayda ibn al-Jarrah and I were far from the Prophet. When we came close to him to render assistance to him, the Prophet said,'Leave me and go to your Companion (meaning Talhah).' ' "

            There was Talhah, bleeding profusely. He had numerous wounds, from sword, spear and arrow. His foot had been cut and he had fallen into a hollow where he lay unconscious.

            Thereafter, the Prophet,sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam, said, "Whoever would like to see a man still walking on earth who has completed his span (of life), let him look at Talhah ibn Ubaydullah."

            And, whenever 'Uhud was recalled, Abu Bakr as-Siddiq,radhiallahu 'anhu, would say,"That day, that entire day, belonged to Talhah."

            That was the story of how Talhah earned the title of 'the Living Martyr'.

                Sa'id ibn Aamir Al-jumahi
                Â*Both Abu Bakr and 'Umar knew Sa'id well for his honesty and piety. They would listen to whatever he had to say and follow his advice. Sa'id once came to 'Umar at the beginning of his caliphate and said,

                "I adjure you to fear God in dealing with people and do not fear people in your relationship with God. Let not your actions deviate from your words for the best of speech is that which is confirmed by action. Consider those who have been appointed over the affairs of Muslims, far and near. Like for them what you like for yourself and your family and dislike for them what you would dislike for yourself and your family. Surmount any obstacles to attain the truth and do not fear the criticisms of those who criticize in matters prescribed by God."

                "Who can measure up to this, Sa'id?" asked Umar.

                "A man like yourself from among those whom God has appointed over the affairs of the Ummah of Muhammad and who feels responsible to God alone," replied Sa'id.

                "Sa'id," he said, "I appoint you to be governor of Homs (in Syria)."

                "'Umar," pleaded Sa'id, "I entreat you by God, do not cause me to go astray by making me concerned with worldly affairs."

                'Umar became angry and said, "You have placed the responsibility of the caliphate on me and now you forsake me."

                "By God, I shall not forsake you," Sa'id quickly responded.

                'Umar appointed him as governor of Homs and offered him a gratuity.

                "What shall I do with it, O Ameer al-Mu'mineen?" asked Sa'id. "The stipend from the bayt al-maal will be more than enough for my needs."

                With this, he proceeded to Homs.

                Not long afterwards, a delegation from Homs made up of people in whom 'Umar had confidence came to visit him in Madinah. He requested them to write the names of the poor among them so he could relieve their needs. They prepared a list for him in which the name Sai'd ibn Aamir appeared.

                "Who is this Sa'id ibn Aamir?" asked Umar.

                "Our ameer," they replied.

                "Your ameer is poor?" said 'Umar, puzzled.

                "Yes," they affirmed, "By God, several days go by without a fire being lit in his house."

                'Umar was greatly moved and wept. He got a thousand dinaars, put it in a purse and said, "Convey my greetings to him and tell him that the Ameer al-Mu'mineen has sent this money to help him look after his needs."

                The delegation came to Sa'id with the purse. When he found that it contained money, he began to push it away from him, saying,

                "From God we are and to Him we shall certainly return."

                He said it in such a way as if some misfortune had descended on him. His alarmed wife hurried to him and asked,

                "What's the matter, Sai'd? Has the Khalifah died?"

                "Something greater than that."

                "Have the Muslims been defeated in a battle?"

                "Something greater than that. The world has come upon me to corrupt my hereafter and create disorder in my house."

                "Then get rid of it," said she, not knowing anything about the dinaars.

                "Will you help me in this?" he asked.

                She agreed. He took the dinaars, put them in bags and distributed them to the Muslim poor.

                  Part 2

                  ​​​​​Umar ibn al-Khattaab went to Syria to examine conditions there. When he arrived at Homs which was called little Kufah because, like Kufah, its inhabitants complained a lot about their leaders, he asked what they thought of their Ameer. They complained about him mentioning four of his actions each one more serious than the other.

                  "I shall bring you and him together," 'Umar promised. "And I pray to God that my opinion about him would not be damaged. I used to have great confidence in him."

                  When the meeting was convened, 'Umar asked what complaints they had against him.

                  "He only comes out to us when the sun is already high," they said.

                  "What do you have to say to that, Sa'id?" asked Umar.

                  Sa'id was silent for a moment, then said,

                  "By God, I really didn't want to say this but there seems to be no way out. My family does not have a home help so I get up every morning and prepare dough for bread. I wait a little until it rises and then bake for them. I then make wads and go out to the people."

                  "What's your other complaint?" asked Umar.

                  "He does not answer anyone at night," they said.

                  To this Sa'id reluctantly said,

                  "By God, I really wouldn't have liked to disclose this also, but I have left the day for them and the night for God, Great and Sublime is He."

                  "And what's your other complaint about him?" asked 'Umar.

                  "He does not come out to us for one day in every month," they said.

                  To this Sa'id replied,

                  "I do not have a home help, O Ameer al-Mu'mineen and I do not have any clothes except what's on me. This I wash once a month and I wait for it to dry. Then I go out in the later part of the day."

                  "Any other complaint about him?" asked Umar.

                  "From time to time, he blacks out in meetings," they said.

                  To this Sa'id replied,

                  "I witnessed the killing of Khubayb ibn 'Adiy when I was a mushrik. I saw the Quraysh cutting him and saying, "Would you like Muhammad to be in your place?" to which Khubayb replied, "I would not wish to be safe and secure among my family while a thorn hurts Muhammad." By God, whenever I remember that day and how I failed to come to his aid, I only think that God would not forgive me and I black out."

                  Thereupon 'Umar said, "Praise be to God. My impression of him has not been tainted." He later sent a thousand dinars to Sa'id to help him out. When his wife saw the amount she said. "Praise be to God Who has enriched us out of your service. Buy some provisions for us and get us a home help."

                  "Is there any way of spending it better?" asked Sa'id. "Let us spend it on whoever comes to us and we would get something better for it by thus dedicating it to God."

                  "That will be better," she agreed.

                  He put the dinars into small bags and said to a member of his family,

                  "Take this to the widow of so and so, and the orphans of that person, to the needy in that family and to the indigent of the family of that person."

                    During the time of Umar Ibn Al Khattab (radiaalahu anhu) there were two men who brought in a young boy, dragging him in to the courthouse. Umar Ibn Al Khattab (radiallahu anhu) asked, ‘What is this, what is going on? Why are you dragging him into the courthouse?” They replied, “This boy has killed our father.” Umar Ibn Al Khattab (radiaalahu anhu) then asked the boy, “Did you really kill their father?” The boy said, “Yes, I did but it was by accident. My camel, it used to tread on their property so one day their father took a rock and hit the camel in the eye and I saw the camel suffering and it made me furious and aggravated. So I took a rock and I threw it at the father. It hit him in the head and he died.

                    Umar Ibn Al Khattab (radiaalahu anhu) asked the two brothers, “Will you forgive this young boy for this accident?” They said no, they wanted Qisaas (retribution). Umar Ibn Al Khattab (radiaalahu anhu) asked the young noy, “Do you have any last wishes, any last requests?” The young boy said yes, “My father passed away and I have a younger brother and my father left some money behind for my younger brother. I would like three days to go and retrieve this wealth from a hidden place so that I can make sure my brother gets it when I die.”

                    Umar Ibn Al Khattab (radiaalahu anhu) thinks the boy is making this story up and asks him what wealth he is talking about. “What wealth? What father? What young brother?” The young boy said, “Trust me.” Umar Ibn Al Khattab (radiaalahu anhu) agrees to trust him, “But find a guarantor for you, someone who will guarantee that you will come.” The young boy looks around, there is a packed courthouse, he asked “Will someone not help me today?” as the boy looked around the people of the courthouse turn their face away down, and they turn their faces away. Non one wants to help this boy.

                    Then from the back of the courthouse a hand raises up. Whose hand is it? Abu Dharr al Ghifari (radiallahu anhu), the noble and illustrious companion of our beloved Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), and who gave da’wah to many tribes. He says, “I will be the guarantor of this boy.” One has to understand what it means to be the guarantor. It means, if this boy does not come back, it is the head of Abu Dharr (radiallahu anhu) that will be chopped off. He will be killed. And so the boy goes away.

                    The first day goes by and the boy is nowhere to be seen, the second day goes by, the boy is still nowhere to be seen. The time for Asr Salaah approaches on the third day and the two brother got to Abu Dharaa al Ghifari (radiallahu anhu) and they tell him to come with them to the courthouse, “It is time.” Abu Dharaa al Ghifari (radiallahu anhu) said, “I will come to the house but the day does not end until Maghrib.” Abu Dharaa al Ghifari (radiallahu anhu) walks through Madinah with these two brothers to the courthouse and the people of Madinah are following them, proceeding to the courthouse to see what is going to happen. It is the talk of the town.

                    Minutes are going by, the courthouse is filling up, and the anxiety is building up. Will Abu Dharaa al Ghifari (radiallahu anhu) have his life sacrificed for the mistake of a boy? Literally minutes before the adhaan of Salatul Maghrib the boy rushes in. People begin shouting, they are happy and wondering what is going to happen. The boy comes in. The Maghrib adhaan hasn’t yet gone.

                    Umar Ibn Al Khattab (radiaalahu anhu) asked the boy, “Oh boy, why did you come back? I did not send a spy behind you. I did not send anyone to follow you. What made you come back?” The boy replied, “I did not want anyone to say that a Muslim gave his word and did not fulfil it, so I came back.” Umar Ibn Al Khattab (radiaalahu anhu) turned to Abu Dharr al Ghifari (radiallahu anhu) and asked, “Oh Abu Dharr, what made you want to be the guarantor of this boy?” He said, “I saw a Muslim in need and I did not want anyone ever to say that a Muslim was in need and no one was there to help him so I raised my hand to be his guarantor.” The two brothers heard this and said, “When we have people like this how can a Muslim ask for forgiveness and no one be there to forgive him. So they forgave the boy.”
