Prophet (saw) to al-Aws and al-Khazraj: “You are from me and I am from you”


al-Salamu `Aleykum,

I found this interesting narration from Ka`b ibn Malik may Allah grant him Jannah and it is long so I will post the relevant part:

فتكلم رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فتلا ودعا إلى الله عز وجل ورغب في الإسلام قال أبايعكم على أن تمنعوني مما تمنعون منه نساءكم وأبناءكم قال فأخذ البراء بن معرور بيده قال نعم والذي بعثك بالحق لنمنعنك مما نمنع منه أزرنا فبايعنا يا رسول الله فنحن والله أهل الحروب ورثناها كابرا عن كابر قال فاعترض القول والبراء يكلم رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أبو الهيثم بن النبهان حليف بني عبد الأشهل فقال يا رسول الله إن بيننا وبين الرجال حبالا وإنا قاطعوها وهي العهود فهل عسيت إن نحن فعلنا ذلك وأظهرك الله عز وجل أن ترجع وتدعنا قال فتبسم رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال بل الدم الدم والهدم الهدم أنتم مني و أنا منكم أحارب من حاربتم وأسالم من سالمتم وقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أخرجوا إلي اثني عشر نقيبا منكم يكونون على قومهم فأخرجوا منهم اثني عشر نقيبا منهم تسعة من الخزرج وثلاثة من الأوس .

[…The Prophet (SAWS) spoke, so he recited Qur’an and called to Allah almighty and invited to Islam in goodness, he (SAWS) said: “I will grant you the Bay`ah as long as you prevent harm from reaching me as you prevent it from reaching your women and children.” al-Bara’ bin `Amro grabbed his hand and said: “Yes, by He who sent you with the truth! we will prevent harm from reaching you as we prevent it from ourselves, so grant us the Bay`ah O Messenger of Allah, for by Allah we are people of war, we inherited it from our fathers generation by generation.” abu al-Haytham bin al-Nabhan interrupted and he was the ally of bani `Abdul-Ashhal, he said: “O Prophet of Allah, between us and those men -meaning Jews- are agreements and covenants, and we shall cut these ties with them, so if we did this and Allah granted you victory, should we expect that you would not leave us, and join the ranks of your people (meaning Quraish)?” so the Prophet (SAWS) smiled and said: “Nay, it would never be; your blood will be my blood. In life and death, you are from me and I am from you. I will fight whom you fight and I will make peace with those with whom you make peace.” the Prophet (SAWS) said: “Bring out from among you twelve representatives to oversee the needs of their people.” and it was nine from the tribe of al-Khazraj and three from that of al-Aws…]

sources:
-Fiqh al-Seerah pg149 and al-Albani said “Sahih”.
-Majma` al-Zawa’ed 6/45 and al-Haythami said: “Narrators are those of al-Sahih except Ibn Ishaq and he declared hearing.”

Salam `Aleykum,

One response to “Prophet (saw) to al-Aws and al-Khazraj: “You are from me and I am from you”

  1. There is nothing saheeh about it ,these and such words which quite often the Rasool e Akram (saaws) used for his own Wasi , for his daughter and for his grandsons, Rasool e Kareem (saaws) is least expected to say these words for every Tom , Dick and Harry . Will you expect that every one who converted to from unbeliever to Islam was given such status which even the closest sahabi could never get . It is so absurd and shameful to present such, lies false and fabricated ahadees and to plant them to belittle the status of Ahlebayt e Athaar
    Alaihissalaat o salaam. It is a blasphemy and is an insult towards the Rasool e Akram (saaws) and only an unbeliever and munafiq could dare to do so .
