[2] The virtues of Mu-aawiyyah Ibn Abee Sufyaan (radiyallaahu-anhumaa)—Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadi

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Indeed the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallaam) made a great supplication for him; Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Abee Umayra reported that the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallaam) said to Mu-aawiyyah: “O Allaah! Make him a guide, one guided to the (straight path) and guide (others) by way of him” [1]

 

 
Irbaad Ibn Saariyah (radiyallaahu-anhu) said: I heard the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallaam) saying: “O Allaah! Teach Mu-aawiyyah the Book (i.e. the Qur’aan) and Al-Hisaab (i.e. knowledge of math, arithmetic, accounting etc) and protect him from the punishment” [2]

 

 

Umm Haraam (radiyallaahu-anhaa) reported that she heard the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallaam) saying: “Paradise will be granted to the first batch of my followers who will undertake a naval expedition.” (Umm Haraam added): I said, “O Messenger of Allaah! Will I be amongst them?” He replied: “You are amongst them” The Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallaam) then said, “The first army amongst my followers who will invade Caesar’s city will be forgiven their sins’. I asked, ‘’Will I be one of them, O Messenger of Allaah?”  He replied: “No” [3]

Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajar (rahimahullaah) said: “Al-Muhallab (rahimahullaah) said: This hadeeth contains (an outstanding virtue) of Mu-aawiyyah, because he was the first to undertake a naval expedition. [4]

 

 

Muaawiyah has (virtues with regards to performance of) great Jihaad in making uppermost Allaah’s statement (or command)  لا إله إلا الله –None has the right to be worshiped except Allaah); conquests [(of lands)–i.e. in order that mankind may single out Allaah in worship and abandon everything worshiped besides Allaah] and other distinguished virtues. And (from those distinguished virtues of Mu-aawiyyah) are: Mutual tolerance, kindness, forbearance, patience and justice.  And if he had nothing else other than the virtue of being a companion of the Messenger, it would have been sufficient for him.
