Introduction About The Battle of Yamama
The Battle of Yamama is one of the most significant battles in Islamic history. It was fought between the forces of the first caliph, Abu Bakr, and the false prophet, Musailima Kazab. Where 1200 companions were martyred and this fitna (strife) was completely wiped out.
This battle marked the end of the prophethood in Islam and solidified the unity of the Muslim community.
Sermon of Caliph Syedana Abu Bakr Siddiq
The first Caliph Syedana Abu Bakr Siddiq was giving a sermon: People! Let there be no men in Madinah, be they the people of Badr or the people of Uhud, all of them should turn to Yamama.
“With wet eyes, he spoke again:
Let no one remain in Madinah until the beasts of the forest come and drag away Abu Bakr.”
The Companions said that if Ali al-Murtaza had not stopped Sayedana Siddique Akbar, he himself would have picked up his sword and headed for Yamamah.
Against 13 thousand, 70000 warriors of Banu Hanafia stood armed.
This was the battle about which the people of Madinah used to say: “By God, we have never fought such a war before or after.”
The number of wars that took place before this was only 259 in Badr Uhud, Khandaq, Khyber and Mota, etc.
The Companions were martyred while 1200 Companions were mutilated in defense of the end of Prophethood.
They were lying together.
O nation! You still don’t understand the importance of ending Prophethood.
The leader of the Ansar, Thabit Bin Qais, is the one whose stories of bravery were famous in Arabia and abroad.
From his tongue came the sentence:
O, Allah! I absolve him whom they worship.”
Chashmaflik also saw the scene when he alone entered the army of thousands and fought until there was no place left on his body where there was no wound from the sword and the sword.
Sermon of Zayed Bin Khattab
The beloved brother of Umar bin Khattab. Yes, the same Zayd bin Khattab who brought Islam
He was in the first row and gave the last sermon among the Muslims:
“By God! I will not speak to anyone today until they are defeated.”
Don’t give up or be martyred.”
O nation! You still did not understand the importance of the end of Prophethood.
It was the garden of Banu Hanafiya “Hadiqa-ur-Rehman” in which so much blood was shed that it came to be called “Hadiqa Al-Mut”. It was a garden whose walls were like a castle.
Can the intellect think that there is an army of thousands Bara bin Malik said:
*”People! Now there is only one way. Pick me up and throw me in this fort. I will open the door for you”*
He stood on the wall of the fort and saw this army of deniers of the end of Prophethood and then jumped into the fort alone.
Day of Judgment
Anyone who claims bravery until the Day of Judgment will also be captured here!!!
A single person was fighting against thousands. Yes, he also opened the door and then the Muslims cut off the disbelievers of the end of Prophethood.
* O people! I wish you knew that your forefathers gave their lives to defend the finality of the Messenger of Allah, may God bless him and grant him peace.
I wish you knew the feelings of those companions of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, who with a handful of people clashed with an army that stretched as far as the eye could see.
Qadianism has appeared in the form of a great fitna.
Therefore, it is the responsibility of every person of faith to participate in the efforts of his salvation.
O Muslims, play your part in the Jihad of the end of Prophethood, so that the intercession of the Seal of the Prophets, may God bless him and grant him peace, be granted on the Day of Judgment.
In the end, I request you all to play your part in moving this text forward in order to keep this story of love and sacrifice of the Companions, may God’s prayers and peace be upon them, in front of all Muslims.
The Holy Prophet ﷺ stayed awake for the sake of the honor and reputation of Khatam-ul-Nabi’een
Therein is salvation.
کی محمدﷺ سے وفا تونے تو ھم تیرے ھیں
یہ جہاں چیز ھے کیا لوح و قلم تیرے ھیں.
