The consequence of mocking the Sahaba r.a


Hadhrat Sa`d bin Abi Waqqas (r.a) who was the maternal uncle of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam was mustajab-ud-da`awat (his duas were readily answered). Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam had made dua in his favour that his duas be accepted.

A group of people were discussing the conflicts that occured in the time of Hadrat Ali (r.a) and Hadrat Abdullah bin Zubair (r.a) and they passed remarks regarding both these Sahaba. Hadhrat Sa`d (r.a) addressed them saying, "Do not speak ill of them because they were excellent people. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam had given them abundant glad tidings."

One person who was very loud spoken continued speaking. Hadhrat Sa`d (r.a) again prohibited them. This person continued speaking. Hadhrat Sa`d (r.a) then said, "Well then, now I will curse you." He then raised his hands and said, "O Allah! This person is speaking ill of your sincere bondsmen to whom Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam had given glad tidings. If these people are really accepted in Your presence then inflict upon this person such a punishment that will be a lesson for the onlookers." Suddenly a caravan of camels appeared. A camel became wild and broke loose from the caravan. It looked to either side and headed straight for the person and caught hold of him. It tore off his skull and then returned to the caravan
