Hamza is the uncle of the Prophet

Hamza bin Abdul Muttalib bin Hashem bin Abd Manaf bin Qusai bin Kilab, uncle of the Prophet – may God’s prayers and peace be upon him – and his brother in breastfeeding, his mother is Hala bint Ahib bin Abd Manaf bin Zahra bin Kilab bin Murra, the cousin of Amina bint Wahb, the mother of the Prophet – may God bless him and grant him peace Peace be upon him-. Hamzah – may God be pleased with him – was born two years before the Prophet – may God bless him and grant him peace – and it was said four, knowing that Hamzah – may God be pleased with him – was a leader among his people, and an honorable one of the nobles of Quraysh, and he was of prestige, and his word of Islam was a source among them. Strength and honor for Muslims, and when Quraysh realized that one of their most important men had announced his conversion to Islam, and announced his joining the ranks of the Prophet – may God bless him and grant him peace -, they stopped the Prophet – may God’s prayers and peace be upon him – from any of their harm.[1]

It was mentioned in the story of Islam Hamza – may God be pleased with him – that he used to go hunting with his bow, so Abu Jahl came one day, insulting the Prophet – may God’s prayers and peace be upon him – and reviling him among the people, while the Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, did not respond to him. With a word, then he left, and a maidservant of Abdullah bin Jadaan was listening to the hadith from her house, and when Hamza returned from his hunting, the maidservant told him what had happened, and that the Prophet – may God’s prayers and peace be upon him – did not respond with a word against Abu Jahl, so Hamzah – may God be pleased with him – got angry Very angry, he went to the Kaaba, where there is a club for the Quraysh in which Abu Jahl was. Then Hamzah – may God be pleased with him – came to Abu Jahl and hit him with his bow, so he made him angry, then shouted at him: “Are you insulting him while I am on his religion, and I say what he says?” Then Hamzah – may God be pleased with him – challenged Abu Jahl to return the blow that he had hit him, and this was difficult for some of the people sitting, and they wanted to return the blow to Hamza. Since that day, Hamzah – may God be pleased with him – announced his conversion to Islam, and he became one of the companions of the Messenger of God – may God’s prayers and peace be upon him -.[1]

The death of Hamza bin Abdul Muttalib

Hamzah – may God be pleased with him – attended as many battles as he could with the Messenger of God – may God bless him and grant him peace – including: the Battle of Badr, then his martyrdom was in the Battle of Uhud. It is worth mentioning that the Battle of Uhud took place in the month of Shawwal of the third year of migration, when he met The Muslims and the polytheists are on the outskirts of the city, and the Master of Martyrs Hamzah – may God be pleased with him – attended with two swords with which he fights in the cause of God, and he says: “I am the sword of God,” and in a narration about him that he was walking his horses with his knees, and he carried a sword in the right, and a sword in the left.[2]

In a narration by Al-Bukhari, it was reported that Hamzah – may God be pleased with him – killed a man in Badr, who was Tuaima bin Adiy bin Al-Khayyar. She killed Hamza, and he promised him that if he killed Hamzah – may God be pleased with him – that he would set him free and grant him his freedom. Wahshi did not intend anything but the killing of Hamza. To gain his freedom, Wahshi tells the details of his killing of Hamza – may God be pleased with him – in which he says: He has been watching him since the beginning of the events of the battle; Until he killed him, he found him brave as a seven, threatening with his sword those of the polytheists, so a brutal ambush was waiting for him behind a rock, until when Hamzah approached him – may God be pleased with him – he sent his arrow to him. .[2]

Despite the martyrdom of Hamzah – may God be pleased with him – but the anger of the polytheists, and their anger against the Muslims was intense, so they came to mutilate the bodies of the martyrs, including the body of Hamzah, the master of the martyrs; So they cut off his nose, cut off his ear, and cut into his stomach, and the Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace, grieved greatly for his uncle, when he saw him in this state, and he loved him very much. We will surely win them over one day from eternity, so that we will emulate them with an example that none of the Arabs has liked.” Then God, the Most High, revealed His saying:[3] So the Prophet – may God’s prayers and peace be upon him – pardoned that, was patient, and forbade mutilating the dead.[4][2]

A brutal Islam, the killer of Hamza

Wahshi enjoyed his freedom after killing Hamzah – may God be pleased with him – and remained in Mecca. I did not know where to go, so I heard a man saying: The Prophet – may God bless him and grant him peace – does not kill a man who has declared his conversion to Islam, so I took the assurance of entering Islam without being harmed by the Prophet – may God’s prayers and peace be upon him – so I went to him, and when I got close to her, I was chased by him. Complete Wahshi: The Prophet – peace be upon him – asked me: (Are you a wicked one? I said: Yes. He said: Did you kill Hamzah? He said: I said: It was something that reached you. Is your face away from me? He said: So I left).[5][6]

Wahshi wanted to atone for his sin of killing the uncle and lover of the Prophet Hamzah – may God be pleased with him – so he intended to kill Musaylimah the liar, so he asked about him until he recognized him. In his mission, I finished him, and Wahshi then said: “With this war I killed the best of people – meaning Hamza – and the worst of people – meaning Musaylimah the liar -.” It is also worth mentioning that Wahshi – may God be pleased with him – participated after that in the battle of Yarmouk. He lived in Homs, and died there during the time of the caliphate of Uthman bin Affan – may God be pleased with him.[6][7]
