The martyrs of Uhud
And Salaam at the Qabr of
Hazrat Hamza رضي الله عنھ &
Hazrat Mus’ab bin Umair رضي الله عنھ
Hamza (رضي الله عنھ) was one of the greatest Muslim warriors. Known also as the Lion of Allah. In the battle of Badr, he had killed many of the Qurayshi nobles and now he cut his way through their ranks like a mighty wave sweeping all before it. One of the Qurayshi nobles had a black slave called Wahshi from Abyssinia (present Ethiopia) who could use the )رضي الله عنھ( javelin with great skill. His master, Jubayr bin Mut’im had promised him freedom if he killed Hamza as he had killed his uncle in Badr. Wahshi prowled amongst the fighters until he saw Hamza (رضي الله عنھ). He says, “I held my spear and balanced it well, then I aimed it. It entered into his abdomen and went out the other side. I waited until he was dead, then I took my spear and went to wait in the camp. I had no quarrel with anyone. I killed him only to be set free.” When the tide of war turned towards the Quraysh, the women of Quraysh, led by Hind, whose brother, uncle and loved ones had been killed in Badr began to mutilate the Muslim dead. She particularly vented her fury on the body of Hamza (رضي الله عنھ), cutting off his nose and ears, making a slit in his chest, taking out his liver, chewing it but unable to swallow it. The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) was greatly grieved when he came upon the body of his beloved uncle.
Mus’ab (رضي الله عنھ) held the flag of Islam. When the Muslims on meeting defeat were dispersing in confusion, he held the flag and stood at his post like a rock. An enemy came and cut his hand with a sword, so that the flag might fall and the defeat might be accomplished. He at once took the flag in the other hand. The enemy then cut the other hand also. He held the flag to his bosom with the help of his bleeding arms. The enemy at last pierced his body with an arrow. He fell dead and, with him fell the flag that he had not allowed to fall while he was alive. Another Muslim ran and took over the flag. #madinatulmunawara #umrah2k18
