Briefly: Mu’aadh bin Jabal



Translated from Shaikh Fawzaan’s Explanation

of Kitaabut Tawheed “al-Mulakh-khas”, p.21

معاذٌ: هو معاذُ بنُ جبلِ بنِ عمرو

بنِ أَوسِ بنِ كعبِ بنِ عمرٍو الخزرجيُّ

الأنصاريُّ صحابيٌّ جليلٌ مشهورٌ

مِنْ أَعيانِ الصحابةِ, وكان متبحرًا

في العلم والأحكامِ والقرآنِ

شهدَ غزوةَ بدرٍ وما بعدَهَا

واستخلفه النبيُّ صلى اللهُ عليه وسلم

على أهلِ مكةَ يومَ الفتحِ يعلِّمُهُم دينَهُم

ثُمَّ بعثَه إلى اليمنِ قاضيًا ومعلمًا

مات بالشام سنة (18) ه وله (38) عامًا

Mu’aadh: He is Mu’aadh bin Jabal bin ‘Amr

bin Aws bin Ka’b bin ‘Amr, al-Khazrajee, al-Ansaaree,

a lofty, well-known Sahaabee

who was from the distinguished leaders of

the Companions. He was an authority

in knowledge and rulings, and the Qur’an.

He participated in the battle of Badr

and the battles after it. The Prophet

sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam

put him in charge of the people of Makkah

on the day of the conquest (Fat-h)

to teach them their religion.

Then he sent him to Yemen as a judge and a teacher.

He died in Sham (Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria)

in the year 18H when he was 38 years old.
