Hadhrat Zubair (Radhiyallahu Anhu)Caution in Narrating Hadith from Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that he once asked his father, Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), “Why do you not narrate the Ahaadeeth of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), as such-and-such Sahaabah (radhiyallahu 'anhum) narrate?” Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “I did not leave Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) after accepting Islam (I am thus able to narrate many Ahaadeeth). However, on one occasion, I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mention something (due to which I fear quoting Ahaadeeth). I heard him (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) say, “The one who deliberately lies against me (fabricates Ahaadeeth and attributes them to me) should prepare his abode in the Hellfire.”

Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) once mentioned:

“Indeed Talhah bin ‘Ubaidillah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) names his sons after the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam), although he knows that that there will be no Nabi after Nabi Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). I name my sons after martyrs so that my sons may perhaps also be blessed with martyrdom.”

Hadhrat Zubair (Radhiyallahu Anhu)Glad Tidings of Martyrdom

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was once on Mount Hiraa when it began to shake. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) addressed the mountain saying, “Be still, O Hiraa! For only a Nabi, a siddeeq, and a martyr stands upon you.” When this incident transpired, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was on the mountain with Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat Talhah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Sa’d bin abi Waqqaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) .

(Saheeh Muslim #2417)

The Neighbor of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in Jannah

Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said, “My ear had directly heard the following statement from the blessed mouth of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam): “Hazrat Talhah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) will be my neighbors in Jannah.””

Hadhrat Zubair (Radhiyallahu Anhu)Receiving the title ‘Special Helper’ of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)

On the occasion of the Battle of Ahzaab, also known as the Battle of Khandaq (the Battle of the Trench), the Muslims received the information that the Banu Quraizah had broken their pledge of allegiance to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and had joined the enemy. In order to verify the information, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), “Who will bring me information of these people (the Banu Quraizah)?” Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) instantly responded by volunteering to go as a spy and bring information of the Banu Quraizah to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

After some time, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) again asked, “Who will bring me information of these people (the Banu Quraizah)?” Once again, Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) volunteered to go. Finally, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked for a third time, “Who will bring me information of these people (the Banu Quraizah)?” On this occasion as well, Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) volunteered to go. It was on this occasion that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was overjoyed and pleased with Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and mentioned, “Indeed every Nabi had a special helper, and my special helper is Hazrat Zubair bin ‘Awwaam (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).”

This entry is part 5 of 17 in the series Life of Hadhrat Zubair (Radhiallahu Anhu)

Hadhrat Zubair (Radhiyallahu Anhu)The First Person to Draw his Sword for the Sake of Allah

Hazrat ‘Urwah bin Zubair (rahimahullah) narrates the following:

Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) accepted Islam at the age of eight. On one occasion, Shaitaan caused a false rumor to spread that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had been seized and captured by the Kuffaar in the upper area of Makkah Mukarramah. When he heard this rumor, Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), who was only twelve years old at the time, immediately set out , parting the people with his sword in his search for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). All who saw Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) were surprised and remarked, “The youngster is carrying a sword!” When he reached Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked him, “What is the matter, O Zubair?” Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied by informing Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) of the false rumor that had spread and said, “I came to strike those who seized you with my sword.”

In another narration, reported by the son of Hazrat ‘Urwah (rahimahullah), Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was the first person to draw his sword for the sake of Allah Ta‘ala. This narration further mentions that when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) heard this reply of Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), he made du‘aa for him and for his sword.

Note: There are different narrations regarding the age of Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) at the time of his accepting Islam. There are two different views that have been narrated from ‘Urwah (rahimahullah). Abul Aswad narrates from ‘Urwah (rahimahullah) that Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was twelve years old when he accepted Islam, and Hishaam bin ‘Urwah (rahimahullah) narrates from his father, ‘Urwah (rahimahullah), that he was sixteen years old. As for Hishaam bin ‘Urwah (rahimahullah), his view is that Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was fifteen years old when he accepted Islam. There is also a view of Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) being eight years old at the time of accepting Islam. He accepted Islam shortly after Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).
