MUSLIM MARTYRS OF THE BATTLE OF YAMĀMA
Many Sahāba (Companions), may Allāh be pleased with them, laid down their lives in defeating Musaylamah the Liar in the Battle of Yamāma in the year 11 A.H / 633 C.E. Quite a number of them were Huffāz al-Qur’ān, those who had memorized the whole Qur’ān by heart. The names of some of the Sahāba who were martyred (in alphabetical order according to the Arabic alphabet) are:
Hadrat Thābit bin Qays bin Shammās
Hadrat Zayd bin al-Khattāb al-Badrī
Hadrat as-Sā’ib ‘Uthmān bin Maz‘ūn al-Badrī
Hadrat Sālim mawlā Abū Hudhayfah al-Badrī
Hadrat Shujā‘ bin Wahb al-Badrī
Hadrat Tufayl bin ‘Amr ad-Dawsī
Hadrat ‘Āmir bin al-Bukayr al-Badrī
Hadrat ‘Abbād bin Bishr al-Badrī
Hadrat ĀbdAllāh bin Sahl
Hadrat ‘AbdAllāh bin Makhramah al-Badrī
Hadrat Mālik bin ‘Amr as-Sulamī al-Badrī
Hadrat Ma‘n bin ‘Adiyy al-Badrī
Hadrat Yazīd bin Qays
Hadrat Abū Hudhayfah bin ‘Utbah al-Badrī
Hadrat Abū Dujānah Simāk bin Kharashah al-Badrī
Rady Allāhu ‘Anhum (may Allāh be pleased with them all).
Hadrat Habīb bin Zayd bin ‘Āsim Rady Allāhu ‘Anhu was martyred before the Battle of Yamāma. Musaylamah the Liar had him cut up limb by limb and killed for refusing to acknowledge his false claim that he was a prophet. You can’t hold back your tears when you hear such horrendous stories.
Al-Badrī indicates that the Sahābī was also a warrior of the Battle of Badr in 2 A.H.
Hadrat ‘AbdAllāh bin Sahl has also been mentioned as Hadrat ‘AbdAllāh bin Suhayl bin ‘Amr al-Badrī in other texts.
