Hadrat Shaiba bin ‘Uthman bin Abu Talha (Radiyallahu anhu)


Hadrat Shaiba bin ‘Uthman bin Abu Talha said: “ I used to hate the Almighty Allah’s Prophetصلى الله عليه وسلّم more than any body else. The reason for this hatred was that eight men of my family had been killed by ( the companions of) Rasoolallah صلى الله عليه وسلّم in the battle of Badr, and every one of them carrying the banner.
“when Makkah was conquered by the grace of Allah the Almighty, I gave up all hope of killing him as I had been longing to do so. I thought to myself that now the whole of Arabia had entered the fold of Islam, When would I be able to take revenge on him.
“then came the Battle of Hunain and the Tribe of Hawazin came out against the believers. Then I set off towards the battlefield in order to deceive and kill the Holy Prophet .Even When most fighters had fled, Rasoolallah صلى الله عليه وسلّم stood firm as a rock in the battlefield with his few devoted companions.I came from behind the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلّم , raised my sword and was about to attack him.Just at the moment I fainted, and flames of fire drew up around me. I could not do anything. I immediately realized that Holy prophet صلى الله عليه وسلّمhad the protection of Allah the Almighty. The Almighty Allah’s Apostle came up to me and said: “O Shaiba,draw near and fight the holy war.” Then the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلّم put his hand on my chest.From then on the Almighty Allah’s Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلّم became the most beloved of all to me.I rode forward, faced the enemy and fought in the name of Allah the Almighty in the presence of the Almighty Allah’s Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلّم and even if my father had confronted me at that time I would definitely killed him in support of the holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلّم .At the end of the battle I presented myself to the Almighty Allah’s Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلّم who told me that Allah the Almighty had intended better for me than that which I had decided for myself.Then (to my amazement) Rasoolallah صلى الله عليه وسلّمrevealed all of the false schemes that I had planned in my heart. I said to myself that nobody could ever have known about these schemes except Allah the Almighty.This was how I accepted Islam.”
-(A’lam Al-Nubuwwah P104/105)
