About this episode

In this talk by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi, he brings forth a detailed discussion on the life and times of Muadh Ibn Jabl RA.

The Prophet ﷺ said to Ibn Jabl RA, ‘O Mu’adh, by Allah I love you dearly, so do not forget to recite after every prayer, ‘Allah help me in remembering You, in offering thanks to You, and in worshiping You properly.”

Muadh excelled in Fiqh and the Qur'an so much so that Muhammad ﷺ said always, “The most learned man of my nation in halal and haram is Mu’adh Ibn Jabal.”

When the Messenger of Allah SAW sent him to Yemen, he asked him, “How will you give a judgment or settle a dispute?” Muadh ibn Jabal RA answered; “I will refer to the Qur’an.” Rasulullah ﷺ then asked, “What will you do if you do not find the decree you are looking for in the Qur’an?” Muadh ibn Jabal RA answered, “I will refer to the Prophet’s Sunnah.”

Rasulullah ﷺ asked, “But what will you do if you do not find a decree even in the Sunnah?”

Muadh ibn Jabal RA readily answered, “I will be judge between mankind by resorting to juristic reasoning (ijtihaad) to the best of my power.”

Another proof of his vast knowledge and expertise in his field is gathered from the hadith where the Prophet ﷺinstructed the whole Ummah to learn the Qur’an from 4 people: Ubayy Ibn Kab, Mu’adh Ibn Jabal, Salim Mawla Abu Hudhayfa and Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood. These stalwarts were of the highest stature in the discipline of the ones who were of the highest knowledge of Qur’an.

Many hadiths are referenced with regard to Muadh Ibn Jabl RA and are each better than the former. Please do listen to your heart's content and experience the grandeur of this great Sahaba.

Mu'adh Ibn Jabl RA left for his heavenly abode as a Shaheed in 18 H due to affliction with plague that wiped his entire family along with him. He died at a tender age of 33.
