O Allah, shower your special mercy upon Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), Your slave and Your messenger, the unlettered messenger, and upon the family of Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). O Allah, shower your special mercy upon Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and upon the family of Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), such mercy which would please You and which is a reward for him, and which truly fulfils his rights. And grant him Al-Waseela and Al-Fadeela (Your special Grace) and Al-Maqam al-Mahmud (the honour of interceding to Allah Ta’ala to commence the reckoning on the day of Qiyaamah) which You have promised him. Reward him on our behalf with a reward he is deserving of and reward him with the best You have ever rewarded a Nabi on behalf of his people and a messenger on behalf of his followers. And shower Your mercy upon all his brothers from amongst the Ambiyaa and the righteous servants, O Most Merciful of those who show mercy.

The Message of Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) for The Muslims.

During the battle of Uhud, Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) inquired, “Where is Sa’d bin Rabee? I do not know of his condition.” Thereafter, one of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) was sent to search for him. He went to the spot where the bodies of the martyrs were laying.

He shouted Hazrat Sa’d’s (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)  name to see if he was alive. At one place, while he was announcing that he was deputed by Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to enquire about Hazrat Sa’d bin Rabee (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), he heard a feeble voice coming from one direction. He turned to that direction and found that Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was lying among the martyrs and was about to breathe his last.

Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was heard saying, “Convey my salaam to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) with the following message, ‘O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), may Allah Ta‘ala grant you, on my behalf, a reward more exalted and more handsome than any reward that Allah Ta‘ala has ever granted a Messenger on behalf of any of his followers.’”

Thereafter, he said to the one who was sent to search for him, “Inform my Muslim brothers that nothing will absolve them from blame on the day of Qiyaamah if the enemy succeeds in reaching Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and killing him before all of them die.” With these words, Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) breathed his last and departed from the world. (Tareekh al-Tabari 2/528)

The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) have given a true proof of their devotion to Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). While they suffered wound after wound and were on their last breath, they had no complaint nor wish on their lips and could not think of anything else except the safety and welfare of Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). May we be blessed with an atom of the true love that the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) bore for Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

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