This entry is part 13 of 15 in the series Life of Hadhrat Sa’d bin abi Waqqaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)

Du‘aa before the Battle of Uhud

Ishaaq bin Sa’d (rahimahullah), the son of Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), narrates the following from his father:

On the day of Uhud, Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Jahsh (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said to Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), “Why don’t you come so that we may make du‘aa together?” They thus secluded themselves in a corner and Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) began to make du‘aa. He said, “O Rabb! When the enemy meet us later, make me encounter one of the enemy who is extremely mighty and very determined, I will fight him and he will fight me. Then bless me to overpower him so that I may kill him and take his equipment as spoils of war.”

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Jahsh (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said Ameen to this du‘aa.

Thereafter, Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Jahsh (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said, “O Allah! Make me meet an enemy later who is extremely mighty and very determined, I will fight him and he will fight me. Then, he will seize me and cut off my nose and my ears. When I meet you on the Day of Qiyaamah, you will ask me, ‘O ‘Abdullah! For what cause were your ears and nose cut?’ I will reply, ‘They were cut for your sake and for the sake of your Rasul (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)!’ You will then reply, ‘You have spoken the truth.’”

Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) mentioned, “The du‘aa of Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Jahsh (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was better than my du‘aa. I saw him at the end of the day and found his nose and ears cut and threaded together.”
