The Disbelievers Persecuting Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) – Part Five

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan bin ‘Affaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports:

I once saw Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) performing tawaaf of the Ka‘bah while ‘Uqbah bin Abu Mu‘ait, Abu Jahal and Umayyah bin Khalaf were sitting in the hateem area.

As Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) passed by, they uttered obscene words to him. The second time Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) passed by, they again uttered obscene words to him. When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) passed by for the third time and they uttered these obscene words again, the blessed countenance of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) changed. He stopped and said to them, “By Allah! You will continue in this manner until the punishment of Allah Ta‘ala swiftly befalls you.”

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) remarked, “At that time, hearing the curse of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), every single one of them was trembling with fear.” Saying this, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) set out for home with us behind him. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then said to us:

أبشروا فإن الله مظهر دينه ومتم كلمته وناصر دينه إن هؤلاء الذين ترون ممن يذبح بأيديكم عاجلا

Accept glad tidings from me, for Allah will indeed make his deen prevail, He will complete His word and assist His deen. These people whom you see – Allah Ta‘ala will soon slaughter them at your hands.

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) says:

فوالله لقد رأيتهم ذبحهم الله بأيدينا

By Allah! I saw them all slaughtered at our hands!
