Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: A man asked the Messenger of Allah (PBUH): "Tell me
where I will be if I am killed while fighting in the way of Allah?'' He (PBUH) replied, "
In Jannah.
'' The man threw
away the few dates which he had in his hand, jumped into the battlefield and fought on till he was killed.
Sincere intention is bound to be rewarded by Jannah. Such people can be safely given the glad
tidings of Jannah.

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) and his Companions
reached Badr before the polytheists, and when they arrived, he (PBUH) directed: "
Let no one of you advance ahead
of m
e.'' When the polytheists came near, the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said
, "Now stand up and proceed towards
Jannah which is as wide as are the heavens and the earth.
'' `Umair bin Al-Humam (May Allah be pleased with him)
asked: "Is Jannah as wide as are the heaven and the earth?'' The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) replied in the
affirmative. `Umair remarked: "Great!'' The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) asked him what had urged him to say so.
He replied: "Nothing, O Messenger of Allah! But hope that I might become one of the inhabitants of Jannah.'' The
Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
You will definitely be among them
.'' `Umair then took some dates out of his
quiver and began to eat them, but after a short time he said: "If I survive till I eat my dates, it will mean a long life.''
So he threw away the dates which he had with him and then fought with the enemy till he was killed.
This Hadith brings out the following three points:
1. The importance of the obedience of the leader. Soldiers should wait for the orders of their commander, and should
not take any step without his orders.
2. In order to infuse the true spirit of Jihad among the soldiers, they should be told and reminded about the blessings
of Jannah so that they fight with enthusiasm and valour for attaining it.
3. The Hadith manifests the love of the Companions of the Prophet (PBUH) for the Hereafter which overwhelmed
their interests in the attractions of the life of the world.

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Some people came to the Prophet (PBUH) and said to him:
"Send with us some men who may teach us the Qur'an and the Sunnah.'' He (PBUH) sent seventy men from the
Ansar. They were called Al-Qurra` (the reciters) and among them was my maternal uncle, Haram. They used to
recite the Qur'an, ponder over its meaning and learn (its wisdom) at night. In the day, they used to bring water and
pour it in pitchers in the mosque, then they would collect wood and sell it; and with the sale proceeds, they would
buy food for the people of As-Suffah and the needy. The Prophet (PBUH) sent the reciters with these people but
these (treacherous people) fell upon them and killed them before they reached their destination. (While dying) they
supplicated: "O Allah convey from us the news to our Prophet that we have met You (in a way), that we are pleased
with You and You are pleased with us.'' (The narrator said:) A man attacked Haram from behind and smote him with
a spear which pierced him. Whereupon Haram said: "By the Rubb of Ka`bah, I have met with success. The
