Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Twelve

This entry is part 12 of 17 in the series Life of Hadhrat Zubair (Radhiallahu Anhu)

Hadhrat Zubair (Radhiyallahu Anhu)Responding to the Call of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) After the Battle of Uhud

ٱلَّذِينَ ٱسْتَجَابُوا لِلَّـهِ وَٱلرَّسُولِ مِن بَعْدِ مَآ أَصَابَهُمُ ٱلْقَرْحُ لِلَّذِينَ أَحْسَنُوا مِنْهُمْ وَٱتَّقَوْا أَجْرٌ عَظِيمٌ ﴿١٧٢﴾

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)?”

On hearing this announcement, seventy Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) answered and went in pursuit of the disbelievers (causing them to abandon their idea of returning to attack the Muslims who had been weakened and injured). Among the seventy were Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).”

Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Eleven

This entry is part 11 of 17 in the series Life of Hadhrat Zubair (Radhiallahu Anhu)

Hadhrat Zubair (Radhiyallahu Anhu)‘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!”
