Muadh ibn Jabal was a young Companion from Madinah who accepted Islam as early as in the Aqabah pledge.
He was known for his love of Quran and knowledge. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) labelled him as the most learned of what is halal and what is haram among his nation.
He is also one of four Companions whom the Prophet recommended as Quran teachers.
Muadh ibn Jabal’s Last Words
Muadh passed away when Amuas plague broke out during the reign of the second Caliph, Umar, may Allah be pleased with him.
This plague claimed the lives of many of the Prophet’s Companion. Muadh was one of these martyrs.
In this video, Imam Omar Suleiman describes the last moments of Muadh. We hear the inspiring, last words of this great Companion (may Allah be pleased with him).
First Ambassador of Islam: Why Mus`ab?
It was the real success. Thanks to Mus`ab’s effort, Islam went into every single house in Madinah. People joined Islam individually and in groups. Mus`ab prepared Madinah to be the host city of the Prophet and the center of guidance to the whole humanity.
