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).

A Woman Dies On Seeing the Prophet’s Grave:
A woman came to Aishah (Radhiyaflaho anha) and said: “Take me to the grave of the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam), so that I may be blessed with its sight.” Aishah (Radhiyallaho anha) opened the room that contained the grave of the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe aration proved fatal for her. Can the annals of history produce a parallel to such love and devotion?

Zaid bin Thabit (Radhiyallaho anho) is one of those eminent Sahabah who are considered to be most learned and whose words in religious matters carry much weight. . He was an expert in regulations regarding obligatory practices. It is said that he was among the top ranking jurists, judges and Qaris. He was only 11 when the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) emigrated to Madinah. That is why, in spite of his eagerness, he was not allowed to participate in the early battles like Badr, etc. He had lost his father when he was six. When the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) arrived in Madinah, people brought their children to him to receive his blessing. Zaid was also brought to him for the same purpose. He says: “When I was presented to the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam), he was informed that I had then memorised seventeen soorahs of the Qur’an. In order to test me, he bade me to recite some of these. I recited Surah Qaaf, He rewarded me with his words of appreciation.” The Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam), when writing letters to the Jews outside Madinah, used to utilise the services ofthe local Jews. Once he said to Zaid, �I am not satisfied with what the Jews write and read for me. I apprehend mischief from them in miswriting or misreading. I desire you to learn the Jewish language.” Zaid (Radhiyallaho anho) says: “In fifteen days, I mastered Hebrew and after that I started doing all such correspondence for him.” According to another Hadith, Zaid (Radhiyallaho anho) is reported to have similarly mastered the Syriac language at the instance of the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam). He managed this within the short period of 17 days only.
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.

İt was narated by Abu Humaid As-Sa’idi : Allah’s Apostle employed an employee (to collect Zakat). The employee returned after completing his job and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! This (amount of Zakat) is for you, and this (other amount) was given to me as a present.” The Prophet said to him, “Why didn’t you stay at your father’s or mother’s house and see if you would be given presents or not?” Then Allah’s Apostle got up in the evening after the prayer, and having testified that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and praised and glorified Allah as He deserved, he said, “Now then ! What about an employee whom we employ and then he comes and says, ‘This amount (of Zakat) is for you, and this (amount) was given to me as a present’? Why didn’t he stay at the house of his father and mother to see if he would be given presents or not? By Him in Whose Hand Muhammad’s soul is, none of you will steal anything of it (i.e. Zakat) but will bring it by carrying it over his neck on the Day of Resurrection. If it has been a camel, he will bring it (over his neck) while it will be grunting, and if it has been a cow, he will bring it (over his neck), while it will be mooing; and if it has been a sheep, he will bring it (over his neck) while it will be bleeding.” The Prophet added, “I have preached you (Allah’s Message).” Abu Humaid said, “Then Allah’s Apostle raised his hands so high that we saw the whiteness of his armpits.”
It was narated by Ibn ‘Umar : Allah’s Apostle said, “While I was sleeping, I saw that a cup full of milk was brought to me and I drank my fill till I noticed (the milk) its wetness coming out of my nails. Then I gave the remaining milk to ‘Umar Ibn Al-Khattab” The companions of the Prophet
asked, “What have you interpreted (about this dream)? “O Allah’s Apostle ,!” he replied, “(It is religious) knowledge.”
