TALHA IBN 'UBAIDULLAH (MAY ALLAH BE PLEASED WITH HIM)


Talha ibn 'Ubaid-Allah ibn 'Uthmaan (R) was also amongst those who were given the glad tidings of Paradise during their lifetimes and he was among of the first people to embrace Islam. In fact Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq (May Allah be pleased with him) invited him to Islam. Talha was also known as Talha -tu-Al-Khair and Talha-tu-Al-Fayaad.

 

He fought with bravery alongside the Messenger of Allah(May Allah Honour him and Grant him Peace) in the Battle of Uhud and he shielded the Prophet peace be upon him from arrows with his own body so much so that his arm was severely wounded and crippled. And he carried the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him on his back until they climbed a large boulder. Talha also fought in all of the battles that followed and he swore his allegiance to the Prophet at Bay'a-tu-Ar-Ridwaan.
