Abu Mas’ud al-Badri (r.a.)

Abu Mas’ud al-Badri was from Madinah. He was among those who were present in the Pledge of Aqabah and promised that they would protect the Messenger of Allah at the cost of their lives. He took part in all battles with the Prophet. He fought heroically. [1]

There is not much information about the life of Abu Mas’ud. He served to enable many hadiths to reach us. He narrated 102 hadiths. Two of those hadiths are as follows:  

“Somebody came to the Messenger of Allah and said, ‘My camel died. Will you find me a camel?’ The Prophet (pbuh) said, ‘I have no camel.’ Somebody who was there said, ‘O Messenger of Allah! Let me take him to a person who will give him an animal to mount.’ The Prophet said, ‘He who enables a good deed to be done receives as many rewards as the one who does that good deed.’”[2]

“One of the statements reaching us from the previous prophets is as follows: Do whatever you wish if you do not feel ashamed.”[3]
