Sa’d’s Message For The Muslims:
During the battle of Uhud, the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) inquired: “What about Sa’d bin Rabee’? I don’t know how things have gone with him.” . One of the Sahabah was despatched to search for him. He went to the spot where the bodies of martyrs lay in heaps. He shouted Sa’d’s (Radhiyallaho anho) name to know if he was alive. At one place, while he was announcing that he was deputed by the Prophet to enquire about Sa’d bin Rabee’ (Radhiyallaho anho), he heard a feeblevoice coming from one direction. He turned to that direction and found that Sa’d (Radhiyallaho anho) was lying among the killed and was about to breathe his last. Sa’d (Radhiyallaho anho) was heard saying: “Convey my Salaam to the Prophet with my message, ‘0 Prophet of Allah! May Allah grant you on my behalf a reward more exalted and more handsome than the one Allah has ever granted a Prophet on behalf of any of his followers, and tell my Muslim brothers, ‘Nothing will absolve you from blame, on the Day of Judgement, if the enemy succeeds in reaching the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) before all of you have fallen.” With these words, Sa’d (Radhiyallaho anho) drew his last breath and passed into the presence of Allah. As a matter of fact, the Sahabah have given a true proof of their devotion to the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe 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 about the safety and welfare of the Prophet. Would that a sinner like me be blessed with an atom of the love that the Sahabah bore for the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam).
