Hazrat ‘Ammaar bin Yaasir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Two

Hazrat ‘Ammaar bin Yaasir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had no family or tribe in Makkah Mukarramah to protect him. Hence, the Quraish subjected him to different types of punishments and tortures.

At the peak of midday, they would lay him onto the burning sand and beat him until he would fall unconscious. At times, they would plunge his head into water and suffocate him, and at times, they would force him to lie on a bed of blazing coals.

On such occasions, when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) happened to pass by, he would pass his blessed hands over the head of Hazrat ‘Ammaar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and say:

يا نار كوني بردا وسلاما على عمار كما كنت على إبراهيم

O fire! Become cool and safe for ‘Ammaar as you had become for Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam)

Whenever Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would see Hazrat ‘Ammaar, his father, Hazrat Yaasir, or his mother, Hazrat Sumayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), he would advise them saying, “O family of Yaasir! Exercise patience!” Sometimes, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would also utter, “O Allah! Forgive the family of Yaasir!” At times, he would remark, “Glad tidings to you! Jannah eagerly awaits your arrival!”

Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that he heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying, “From head to toe, Hazrat ‘Ammaar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) is imbued with faith (i.e. he is an embodiment of Imaan).”
