Sayyidina Abu Ubaidah ibn al Jarrah
Baginda Nabi S.A.W, “Sesungguhnya setiap umat mempunyai orang kepercayaan, dan orang kepercayaan umat ini adalah Abu Ubaidah bin al-Jarrah.” - Riwayat al-Tirmizi
His wasiat ...
As soon as Abu Ubaidah moved to Jabyia he became afflicted with the plague (Ta'un). As death hung over him, he spoke to his army:
Let me give you some advice, which will cause you to be on the path of goodness always— Establish Prayer. Fast the month of Ramadan. Give Sadaqah. Perform the Hajj and Umrah. Remain united and support one another. Be sincere to your commanders and do not conceal anything from them. Don't let the world destroy you for even if man were to live a thousand years he would still end up with this state that you see me in. Peace be upon you and the mercy of God.He then appointed Muadh ibn Jabal as his successor and ordered him to lead people in prayers; after the prayers Muadh went to him and, at that moment, his soul departed.
Muadh got up and said to the people:
O people, you are stricken by the death of a man. By God, I don't know whether I have seen a man who had a more righteous heart, who was further from all evil and who was more sincere to people than he. Ask God to shower His mercy on him and God will be merciful to you.He died in 639 C.E. and was buried at Jabiya. It has been narrated that his janaza was led by Muadh bin Jabal.
