Julaybib (may Allah be pleased with him)

Julaybib


You have probably never heard of this companion and neither did I until I was asked to post something about him. This has been summarised from Companions of the Prophet 1 by Abdulwahid Hamid pages 216-221.


He was described as someone was extremely short and what we could call a social outcast. He was a companion whose lineage was unknown and this made his life in Yathrib (Medina) difficult.



He was one of Ansar from the outlying tribes in Medina. He was shunned and treated badly because of his unknown lineage and his appearance. He could not rely on support from his tribe this made him an easy target.


The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) recognised his needs and his problems. He (peace and blessings of Allah be upon) sought to find him a wife in order the help him get married which would have been difficult in these circumstances.


The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) approached one of the Ansar but when they found out it was Julaybib they refused but when the daughter found out she accepted. She said, “Do you refuse the request of the Messenger of God?” They were married and they lived together until Julaybib (may Allah be pleased with them) was martyred. When his body was found on the battlefield his body was surrounded seven slain enemies. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) dug the grave himself and placed him into it then he said, “He is of me and I am of him.” How wonderful these words are that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) spoke.


In every society there are people who need our help and support just like Julaybib (may Allah be pleased with him). The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) sought to help those people who were in need and many people in our mist are in need. There are many of us who need help getting married and we need to help each other, families need to be more supportive of their children. Who helps those in need now?
