Anas bin Nadhr’s martydom

When the Muslims were facing defeat in Uhud, somebody started the rumour that the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) had been killed. You can imagine the Sahabah’s grief and anguish over this tragic news. This, quite naturally, caused most of them to lose heart in despair. Anas bin Nadhr (Radhiyallaho anho) happened to see ‘Urnar and Talhah (Radhiyallaho anhuma) with a group of Muslims in a state of utter bewilderment. He said to them: “Why am I seeing you all so bewildered?” They said: “The Prophet (Sallallaho alaihewasallam) is slain.” Anas (Radhiyallaho anho) exclaimed: “Then who will like to live after him? Come, let us go forward with our swords and join our dear Prophet.” No sooner did he utter these words than hr: plunged into the enemy lines and fought till he was martyred. In fact. Anas (Radhiyallaho anho) had such an extreme love for the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) that he did not consider this life worth living without him.
