Hadhrat Talha (Radhiyallahu Anhu) in the Battle of Uhud

Hadhrat Zubayr bin Awwaam (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) wore two suits of armour on his mubaarak body in the battle of Uhud. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) intended climbing a rock during the battle, but was unable to do so. He therefore requested Hadhrat Talha (Radhiallahu Anhu) to sit, and with his assistance he climbed the rock. Hadhrat Zubayr (Radhiallahu Anhu) says that I heard Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) say: “It has become waajib for Talha. (i.e. Jannah or the intercession of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).”

In the battle of Uhud, Hadhrat Talha (Radhiallahu Anhu) very bravely accompanied and protected Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Whenever the Sahaabah discussed the battle of Uhud, they would say that this day belonged to Hadhrat Talha (Radhiallahu Anhu). Hadhrat Talha (Radhiallahu Anhu) shielded Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) with his body. He received more than eighty wounds on his body, yet he did not leave the side of Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), even though his hand had become paralyzed. (Shamaail Tirmizi with Khasaail Nabawi)

أَحسن منكَ لَم تَرَ قَطُّ عَينِي                وَأجْمَل مِنْكَ لَمْ تَلِدِ النّسَاءُ

خُلِقْتَ مُبَرَّأً مِنْ كُلّ عَيبٍ                     كَأَنّكَ قَدْ خُلِقْتَ كَمَا تَشَاءُ 

Better than you no eye has ever seen, More beautiful than you no woman has given birth to

You have been created free from any defect, As if you were created like how you desired.

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَ سَلِّمْ دَائِمًا أَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيبِكَ خَيرِ الخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

All verbal praises that are full of blessings, physical praises and monetary devotions are for Allah Ta’ala. May the special peace of Allah Ta’ala descend upon you, O Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), and Allah’s choicest mercies and blessings. May peace descend upon us and upon all the pious servants of Allah Ta’ala. I bear witness that there is no deity except Allah Ta’ala, and I bear witness that Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is His servant and messenger.

Travelling for a Single Hadith

Kathir bin Qais narrates: “I was once sitting with Hadhrat Abu Darda (Radhiyallaho anho) in a musjid in Damascus, when a person came to him and said, O Hadhrat Abu Darda (Radhiyallaho anho), I have travelled all the way from Madinah  Tayyibah to acquire one Hadith from you, as I have learnt that you have heard it directly from Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).”

Hadhrat Abu Darda (Radhiyallaho anho) asked: "Do you have any other work in Damascus?" The person replied: "No." (i.e. I have only come to Damascus to acquire the Hadith.) Hadhrat Abu Darda (Radhiyallaho anho) asked again: “Are you sure that you have no other work in Damascus?” The person again replied: “I have come to this place with the sole purpose of learning this Hadith.” Hadhrat Abu Darda (Radhiyallaho anho) then said: “Listen, I have heard Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) saying, ‘Allah Ta’ala eases the way to Paradise for the one who traverses some distance to seek knowledge. The angels spread their wings under his feet, and all the things in the heavens and the earth (even the fish in the water) make duaa to Allah Ta’ala for his forgiveness. The superiority and high rank of a person possessing Deeni knowledge over a person engaged in worship (without having Deeni knowledge) is like the superiority of the moon over the stars. The Ulama are the inheritors of Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). The legacy of Ambiyaa (Alaihimus salaam) is neither gold nor silver. Rather, their legacy is the knowledge of Deen. A person who acquires Deeni knowledge has certainly acquired great wealth.”  (Fazaail Aamaal)

Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) 

Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) is a famous Sahaabi of Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). No other Sahaabi has narrated as many Ahadith as he has done. He embraced Islam in 7 A.H. and since Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) passed away in 11 A.H., he had been with him for only four years. People used to marvel how he could remember so many Ahaadith in such a short period. He explains this himself, saying: “People wonder how I narrate so many Ahaadith. The fact is that my Muhajir brothers remained busy in trade and my Ansaar brothers did their farming, while I was always with Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). I was among the people of Suffah. I was not concerned of earning livelihood and constantly remained with Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) being content with whatever little food I received. I would be with Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) at times when no one else was there. I once complained to Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) about my poor memory. He said to me, ‘Spread out your shawl.’ I immediately did so. He thereafter made some signs with his mubaarak hands on my shawl and said, ‘Now wrap this shawl around you.’ I wrapped it around my chest. Since then, I have not forgotten anything that I have wished to remember.” (Fazaail Aamaal)

Hadhrat Bilaal (Radhiallahu Anhu) returns to Madinah Tayyibah

After Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) passed away, it became extremely difficult for Hadhrat Bilaal (Radhiallahu Anhu) to remain in Madinah Tayyibah.  This was on account of the deep love he possessed for Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Remaining in Madinah Munawwara caused him to remember Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) at every step and every corner. He therefore left Madinah Tayyibah, and decided to pass the rest of his life striving in the path of Allah Ta’ala. Once he saw Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) in his dream saying to him: “O Bilaal, why is it that you do not visit me?”

He immediately set out for Madinah Tayyibah. On reaching there, Hadhrat Hasan and Hadhrat Husain (Radhiyallaho Anhuma), the grandchildren of Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) requested him to call out the Azaan. He could not refuse them, for they were very dear and beloved to him. As soon as the Azaan was called, the people of Madinah Tayyibah cried openly in remembrance of the time of Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).  Hadhrat Bilal (Radhiyallahu Anhu) left Madinah Tayyibah again after a few days and passed away in Damascus in the year 20 A.H. (Fazaail Aamaal)

Hadhrat Umme Sulaym (Radhiallahu Anha) and the Mubaarak Perspiration

Hadhrat Umme Sulaym (Radhiallahu Anha) (who was a mahram of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) narrates that once Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) visited her, and took his afternoon rest (qayloola) at her home. Whilst sleeping, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) began perspiring. She narrates that she took a small bottle and began collecting his blessed perspiration. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) awoke and asked her what she was doing. She informed Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) that she was collecting his blessed perspiration, as there was no fragrance sweeter than it. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) permitted her and did not disapprove of this action. (Muslim)
