Episode Notes

In this elaborate talk about yet another great Sahaba – Abdullah Ibn Zubayr RA, Shaykh Yasir Qadhi elucidates numerous details entailing the biography and also some major fitans that took place in his time.

Ibn Abbas narrates about that the lineage of Ibn Zubayr RA was unparalleled with him being the son of Zubayr Ibn Al Awwam RA and Asma Bint Abi Bakr RA, the niece of Khadija RA and also of Aisha RA and the grandson of Safiyyah RA. He was a very handsome man with hair reaching his shoulders and he was blessed with a loud and resonating voice which proved beneficial in his way of Islam. He was the first child on whom tahneek was done by the Prophet ﷺ and the Azaan was given by Abu Bakr RA. Hence, it is appropriate to say that the barakah on Ibn Zubayr was instilled since his birth. He is one among the blessed children Sahabas.

He became an embodiment of Ibadah with people saying that his level of Khushoo in Ibadah and Salah was unimaginable with some saying that when he stood up for salah , he stood so still  that they thought he was a pillar of the Haram. He was not deterred by hindrances that came in the way of worship to Allah and is once reported to have done the Tawaf of the Ka’bah by swimming when Makkah was lashed by rains. His level of worship, courage and eloquence had no parallel.

Abdullah RA was an avid member of various armies that fought against both the Byzantine and Sassanid empires. He was with his father in the Battle of Yarmuk. He was also part of the Battle of the Camel. He was irreplaceable in the Battle of Tripoli.

Details are meted out which elaborate explicitly the incidents that transpired among Muawiyah, Yazid and Abdullah Ibn Zubayr RA and the aftereffects of this denial of allegiance.
