Briefly: The Sahaabee ‘Ubaadah bin as-Saamit


Translated from Shaikh Fawzaan’s Explanation of Kitaabut Tawheed “al-Mulakh-khas”, p.25

عبادةُ بنُ الصامتِ: هو عبادةُ بنُ الصامتِ

بنِ قيسٍ الأنصاريُّ الخزرجيُّ

أحد النقباء بدريٌّ مشهورٌ

توفي سنة (34) ه وله (72) سنة

‘Ubaadah bin as-Saamit: He was ‘Ubaadah bin as-Saamit bin Qays, from the Ansar, from the tribe of al-Khazraj. He was one of the twelve Companions who gave the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam) the pledge on the night of the pledge1. He participated in the battle of Badr and was a well-known Companion of the Prophet2 (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam). He died in the year 34 after the Hijrah at the age of 72

Two ahaadeeth about him from Saheeh Bukhari (Book of the Merits of the Ansar, narrated by ‘Ubaadah – radiallaahu anhu) taken from :

Hadeeth #1: I was one of the Naqibs who gave the (‘Aqaba) pledge of allegiance to Allah’s Apostle . We gave the pledge of allegiance to him that we would not worship anything other than Allah [God, The Creator], would not steal, would not commit illegal sexual intercourse, would not kill a person whose killing Allah has made illegal except rightfully, would not rob each other, and we would not be promised Paradise jf we did the above sins, then if we committed one of the above sins, Allah will give His Judgment concerning it.

Hadeeth #2: Who had taken part in the battle of Badr with Allah’s Apostle and had been amongst his companions on the night of Al-‘Aqaba Pledge: Allah’s Apostle, surrounded by a group of his companions said, “Come along and give me the pledge of allegiance that you will not worship anything besides Allah, will not steal, will not commit illegal sexual intercourse will not kill your children, will not utter; slander, invented by yourself, and will not disobey me if I order you to do something good. Whoever among you will respect and fulfill this pledge, will be rewarded by Allah. And if one of you commits any of these sins and is punished in this world then that will be his expiation for it, and if one of you commits any of these sins and Allah screens his sin, then his matter, will rest with Allah: If He will, He will punish him and if He will,. He will excuse him.” So I gave the pledge of allegiance to him for these conditions.
