Hadith #1

حدثنا أبو العباس محمد بن إبراهيم بن إسحاق الطالقاني - رضي الله عنه - بالري في رجب سنة تسع وأربعين وثلاثمائة، قال: حدثنا أبو بكر محمد بن القاسم الأنباري، قال: حدثنا محمد بن يونس، قال: حدثنا عبد الرحمن بن عبد الله أبو صالح الطويل التمار البصري جليس سليمان بن حرب، قال: حدثنا إسماعيل بن قيس، عن مخرمة بن بكير، عن أبي حازم، عن خارجة بن زيد بن ثابت، عن أبيه قال: لما كان يوم أحد بعثني رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله في طلب سعد بن الربيع وقال لي: إذا رأيته فأقرئه مني السلام وقل له: كيف تجدك؟ قال: فجعلت أطلبه بين القتلى حتى وجدته بين ضربة بسيف وطعنة برمح ورمية بسهم فقلت له: إن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله يقرء عليك السلام وهو يقول: كيف تجدك؟ فقال: سلم على رسول الله عليه وآله وقل لقومي الأنصار: لا عذر لكم عند الله إن وصل إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وفيكم شفر يطرف. وفاضت نفسه.

1. We were told by Abu’l-Abbas, Muhammed bin Ibrahim bin Ishaq al-Talaqani, may Allah be pleased with him, in Ray, during Rajab, year 349, that he said: We were told by Abu Bakr, Muhammed bin Qasem al-Anbari, that he said: We were told by Muhammed bin Yunus, that he said: We were told by Abdul-Rahman bin Abdullah, Abu Saleh al-Tuweel, the date seller, al-Basri, the one who sat with Sulayman bin Harb, that he said: We were told by Isma’eel bin Qais, from Makhrama bin Bukair, from Abu Hazem, from Kharija bin Zaid bin Thabit, from his father, that he said: When it was the Day of Uhud, the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, sent me to seek Sa’d bin Rabee’, and he said to me: If you see him, recite upon him peace, from me, and say to him: How do you find yourself? He said: Then I kept seeking him among the slain until I found him between a hit by the sword, a stab of a spear and a hit by an arrow, and I said to him: Indeed, the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, recites peace upon you and says to you: How do you find yourself? He said: Send peace upon the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, and say to my people, the Ansar: There is no excuse for you, in the sight of Allah, if the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, reaches and there is among you ones who are edges of eyelids. His soul then burst out.
