أخذ الراية زيد فأصيب ثم أخذها جعفر فأصيب ثم أخذها عبد الله بن رواحة فأصيب ثم أخذها خالد عن غير إمرة ففتح الله عليه وما يسرني أنهم عندنا – أو قال – وما يسرهم أنهم عندنا» .
(صحيح) … [حم خ ن] عن أنس)

It is reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“Zaid took the flag and was martyred, and then Ja`far took the flag and was martyred, and then` Abdullah bin Rawaha took the flag and was martyred too[1], and then Khalid bin Al-Walid [2] took the flag though he was not appointed as a commander and Allah made him victorious. ” The Prophet (ﷺ) further added, “It would not please us to have them with us.” Aiyub, a sub-narrator, added, “Or the Prophet, shedding tears, said, ‘It would not please them to be with us.'”

This hadith was narrated by Ahmad 3/113, al-Bukhari 2798, al-Nasai in Sunan al-Kubra from the words of Anas.

Sheikh al-Albani called the hadith authentic. See Saheeh al-jami ‘as-saghir 223.

Grade: صحيح


[1] Here the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) informs people about the course and the end of the battle between Muslims and Byzantines at Mu’ta (Southern Syria, 629). The commander of the Muslim detachment was originally appointed Zayd Ibn Haris, and his deputies, respectively, Ja’far ibn Abu Talib and Abdullah ibn Ravah, may Allah be pleased with them.

[2] It means that when sending a detachment on a campaign, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not appoint him as a commander. Khalid ibn al-Walid, may Allah be pleased with him, who converted to Islam shortly before the Battle of Mu’ta, was one of the most prominent commanders of the early period of Islamic history. He died in 642.
