In a Hadeeth that was narrated by ‘Aa’ishah, may Allah be pleased with her, concerning burying the dead of the Quraysh after the Battle of Badr was over, she said
The Prophet's Supplication for Abu Huthayfah bin Rabee‘ah
- Publish date:31/03/2010
When he [the Prophet ] commanded that they should be dragged away, he noticed sadness on the face of Abu Huthayfah bin ‘Utbah. The Messenger of Allah said to him: “O Abu Huthayfah, it is as if the matter of your father displeased you?” He replied, “O Messenger of Allah, by Allah, I doubt neither Allah nor His Messenger. But, he [my father] was patient and of sound opinion. I was hoping that he would not die until Allah would guide him to Islam. When I saw that it was too late and he was killed, this displeased me.” The Messenger of Allah then supplicated to Allah for him to not be affected negatively by this.
