Abbaas (radiallaahu `anhu) Accepts Islam (Hadith No. 2212)


Ahadith 2208 – 2211 (below) are repeats. See linked text for related posts.

Volume 3, Book 46, Number 710:
Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):
Utba bin Abi Waqqas (radiallaahu `anhu) authorized his brother Sad bin Abi Waqqas (radiallaahu `anhu) to take the son of the slave-girl of Zam’a into his custody, telling him that the boy was his own (illegal) son. When Allah’s Apostle went (to Mecca) at the time of the Conquest, Sad took the son of the slavegirl of Zam’a to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and also brought ‘Abu bin Zam’a (radiallaahu `anhu) with him and said, “O Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)! This is the son of my brother ‘Utba (radiallaahu `anhu) who authorized me to take him into my custody.” ‘Abu bin Zam’a (radiallaahu `anhu) said, “O Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)! He is my brother, the son of Zam’a’ slave-girl and he was born on his bed.” Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) looked at the son of the slave-girl of Zam’a and noticed much resemblance (to ‘Utba). Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “It is for you, O ‘Abu bin Zam’a as he was born on the bed of your father.” Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) then told Sauda bint Zam’a (radiallaahu `anhaa) to observe veil in the presence of the boy as he noticed the boy’s resemblance to ‘Utba and Sauda was the wife of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam).


Volume 3, Book 46, Number 711:
Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah (radiallaahu `anhu):
A man amongst us declared that his slave would be freed after his death. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) called for that slave and sold him. The slave died the same year.


Volume 3, Book 46, Number 712:
Narrated Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu):
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) forbade the selling or donating the Wala’ of a freed slave.


Volume 3, Book 46, Number 713:
Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):
I bought Buraira but her masters put the condition that her Wala’ would be for them. I told the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) about it. He said (to me), “Manumit her as her Wala’ will be for the one who pays the price.” So, I manumitted her. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) called Buraira and gave her the option of either staying with her husband or leaving him. She said, “Even if he gave me so much money, I would not stay with him,” and so she preferred her freedom to her husband.

Today’s Hadith:


Volume 3, Book 46, Number 714:
Narrated Anas (radiallaahu `anhu):
Some men of the Ansar asked for the permission of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and said, “Allow us to give up the ransom from our nephew Al-‘Abbas. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said (to them), “Do not leave (even) a Dirham (of his ransom).”

Abbas, who was the uncle of the Prophet and who was among the captives of Badr, was quite rich.

The Messenger of Allah said to him, “O Abbas! Pay ransom for yourself, Aqil b. Abi Talib, your nephew, and Nawfal b. Harith, because you have wealth.”

Hazrat Abbas had brought eight hundred dirhams of gold while going to Badr with polytheists to spend for the soldiers. During the battle, this gold was captured from him and was put among the booty. Therefore, he said to the Prophet, “Let us regard that gold as ransom.”

The Prophet said, “No… That is something that you carried in order to spend against us; Allah gave it to us. We cannot give it back to you.”

Hazrat Abbas said, “I have no money other than that. Will you make me a beggar?”

Thereupon, the Prophet said, “O Abbas! Where is that gold?”

Hazrat Abbas said, “Which gold?”

The Messenger of Allah said,

“The gold that you entrusted to Umm Fadl, your wife, on the day when you left Makkah! There was nobody else but you and your wife when you gave her the gold. You said to Umm Fadl, ‘I do not know what will happen in this expedition. If something happens to me and I cannot return, this amount of gold is for you, this part is for Fadl, this part is for Abdullah, this part is for  and this part Qusam!’ I mean that gold!”

Hazrat Abbas asked in astonishment, “Who told you about it?”

The Prophet said, “Allah did!”

Thereupon, Hazrat Abbas uttered the kalima ash-shahada and became a Muslim. He returned to Makkah after paying the ransom.

Hazrat Abbas did not declare that he was a Muslim when he returned to Makkah; he informed the Prophet about Makkah secretly and helped the Muslims there.
