A BLIND MAN WHO KILLED A WOMAN OVER BLASPHEMY (Incident 1)

This story has mentioned by Al Waqidi.

This woman’s name was Asma’ bint Marwan, she was a good poet from the Ansar but would speak against the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and speak against Islam and she would try to cause Fitnah among people. She would tell them “This man does not belong to our tribe how come we are hosting him and causing ourselves all of this trouble, how come we are giving him safe-haven to stay among us, just drive him out!” The Ansar suffered a lot because of the Hijrah of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). They suffered financially, many of them were killed, their city was besieged, but they were doing it for the sake of Allah Almighty and that is why they were called the Ansar – the ones who gave victory to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).
O’mair bin Ali, a blind man who was from her family said, “In the name of Allah I make this vow that if the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) returns to Madina I shall kill her!” The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was at that time at Badr.
When the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) returned, O’mair bin Ali went to her in the middle of the night and went straight to her room.   
She was surrounded by her children who were asleep and one of them was breast-feeding from her. He touched around and saw that she was holding this child, so he held the child with his hands and put the child next to her and then he took his sword and placed it in her chest.

And then he went and prayed Fajr with the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). When the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) finished prayer he looked at O’mair and told him “Did you kill the daughter of Marwan?” 
He said, “Yes, I sacrifice my father for you O Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)”

Now O’mair was worried that he might have done something wrong and he should have sought the permission of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon  him), as the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was the Wali al Amr. So he asked the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) “Is there anything wrong in what I did O Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)?”
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) looked at those around him and said,
“If you want to see a man who has supported and given victory to Allah and his Messenger then look at O’mair ibn Ali!”
Omar bin al Khattab said “Look at this blind man who went out at night in obedience of Allah Almighty!”
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said,
“Don’t say he is a blind man because he is man with very clear vision!”
When O’mair went back he found the children along with some tribe members of this woman burying her. They came to him and threatening him said, “Oh O’mair! You are the one who killed her!” These were fighters; we are talking about the men from A’ws and Khazraj, people who were born into the fighting!
He said, “Yes! And I challenge you all, all of you gather together, if any one of you would say anything similar to what she said I am going to fight you all until I either kill you all or I die!”
According to Al Waqidi, “That is when Islam prevailed among these people because the one who were Muslims then were underground in fear of their people but when they saw the strength of Islam, now they started revealing themselves”.

CONQUEST OF MAKKAH AND BLASPHEMY CRIMES

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) merciful and used to forgive his enemies, but with particular crime (blasphemy) things were different.

So let’s read that what happened during conquer of Makkah.

When the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) opened (conquered) Makkah.
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) wanted it to be a nonviolent conquer of the Holy town, he wanted it to be a procession of peace. He did not want any bloodshed.

However, there was a blacklist. This was a list of names that were to be killed “even if you found them hanging to the cloths of the Ka’bah”.
There was a saying that the holiest place in the world was Makkah and the holiest of the holy was al’Haram, and if someone is touching the cloths of the Ka’bah and hanging to it, leave him alone. That was even the rule of the Mushrikeen at the time of Jahiliyyah. But the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said,
“Kill them even if you see them hanging to the cloth of al Ka’bah”
Who were they?

This list included some names, among these names were a man called Abdullah ibn Khatal and his two slaves singing girls and Sarah the slave of Abi Lahab. Who were these?

Abdullah ibn Khatal had these two slave girls who used to sing against the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him); they would hold concerts in Makkah singing against the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). These two slave girls were on that list along with another slave girl that belonged to Abu Lahab.

Let’s read about Abdullah ibn Khatal, he actually was hanging to the cloths of the Ka’bah and one of the companions rushed towards him and killed him!
Let’s look at the interesting case of these women.

Number one, as we as Muslims know that women are not to be killed! The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) has prohibited the killing of women yet these were specifically mentioned in this list to be killed.
Number two, we as Muslims know that women, if they join in the fighting against Muslims they can be killed, but these women were not fighting and did not participate in any fighting. In fact, they were in a state of complete surrender!
Number three, the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) had given peace and security to all the people of Makkah and he singled them out!
Number four, they were not free women but they were slaves, and the issue of freewill plays an important part in the rules and legislations of punishment in Islam, as the slave does not have freewill the punishment are reduced. These women were not free in choosing to sing against the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) but they were ordered to do so by their masters, Abu Lahab and Abdullah bin Khatal, and yet they were singled out and told to be killed!

Ibn Taymiyah says about this “It’s a clear and strong evidence that the greatest crime of all is blasphemy against the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) because with all of these factors – the fact that he gave security to the people of Makkah, and the fact that they were women, and the fact that they did not fight, and the fact that they were slaves – they were singled out for capital punishment! This tells you that this is a great crime!”
Then we have another man who was on this black list his name is AlHuairith bin Nuqaydh. He used to also harm the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) with his tongue. He was hiding in his house; Ali bin Abi Talib came to his house asking about him, so they said he was not there and that he left to Badiyah – to outside Makkah. And they told Huairith that Ali bin Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with him) came looking for you.
Ali went and hid behind the house. When Huairith wanted to run away to another house, Ali bin Abi Talib cut him off and killed him.

Another example is Ka’b ibn Zuhair. Ka’b ibn Zuhair was a poet, his brother was a poet and his father Zuhair bin Abi Salma, was one of the greatest poets, he was one of those who had the Mua’laqaat. The Arabs used to honor the best pieces of poetry by hanging them on the Ka’bah; this was to express the beauty of this piece of work. Zuhair bin Abi Salma was one of these who had his poems hanging on the Ka’bah, his sons Ka’b and Bujair were both poets. But Bujair was a Muslim and Ka’b was a non-Muslim and used to make poetry against the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).
So when the Muslims entered into Makkah, Bujair wrote a letter to his brother and he told him that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is killing the men of Makkah who had poetry against him. Ka’b was not in Makkah at that time, but his brother sent him a letter beforehand warning him that, the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is killing all of the people who spoke against him and that the ones who are left like Abdullah ibn Zabariyyah and Mughirah ibn Abi Wahb, are trying to flee and run away because the Prophet has issued his orders to kill anybody who speaks against him!
So these are examples for blasphemy which is greatest crime!.

THE BLACK IN AMERICA

The Black Africans Journey towards America
The great discovery.  A vast land rich in economic resources.  A fertile and beautiful land, filled with all that is required in life. Full of different types of vegetation and animals. Rivers spread all over the country, beautifying the land, thus making different types of people to race towards it: to live a comfort, beautiful and stable life.
Because of this, people from different countries migrated. But the majority of migrants came from Europe, who already had powerful military capabilities, equipment and war experience from their own land. The Europeans did not migrate with the intention of peacefully settling in this vast land. However, their intention was a violent forceful occupation: Controlling the land by killing and destroying the population. Ruling by all means possible.
Statistics show that the European migrants killed around 70% of the indigenous population. They committed a genocide using the most destructive of weapons available at that time, biological weapons.  For a long period, the white European rule had been stable in America. Immigration from the African community who were searching for livelihood, continued to increase. The white community enslaved the Africans and took them as laborers. Treating them in an incomparable violent manner, even though some of the black immigrants were not slaves. The general view was that they were inferior, and deprived of the most basic human rights. Under the shade of the British colonization and its imperial rule in America over the 13 colonies, some laws began to stir  up  dissention among the people from  different races;  British, French, Dutch, Africans  and others. Among the great opposition they had were the tough economic laws imposed by the British e.g. high taxes. And because of such pressure, in 1770 the American Revolution began against the British. The slaves and free Africans fiercely fought side-by-side with the white, later on becoming an important element of power in the coming conflicts. In the  year  1861,  civil war broke out between  the Southern Confederate  States and the Northern Federal Union  States, led  by Abraham  Lincoln. The initial cause of war was the decision taken by Lincoln to emancipate slavery. Though the real motive was not emancipation, or defending humanity, or being Merciful and just as the American media portrays.  But he was defending his political interests, by weakening the southern confederate states with this law and strengthening his power on the North by imposing political dominance on all states. This was confirmed by a congressman when he said “… (Slavery) cannot be neutral.  As laborers, if not as soldiers, they will be allies of the rebels, or of the Union” because of that, the United States and the congress accepted the emancipation of slaves as part of the entire war, a requirement to save the unity. Among the reason for taking the decision to emancipate the slaves after the war  is the  inevitable  confrontation between the  two races:  This  is  because  the  Afro-Americans started demanding their  rights.  And any lagging behind in this issue will ignite a conflict in all states. Mentioning these historical events:

Up to this stage, the Afro-Americans were not able to demand their rights, but succeeded in liberating themselves from slavery.

Liberation of Africans from the whites was not because of Lincoln’s high  morals,  but  because  of the very existence of the Blacks and the power they  had established for themselves, This led to their emancipation,  which was because of  ‘mutual interests’ between the two parties.

The western media tries to suggest that President Lincoln freed all Black slaves, when among them they were some who were already free.

These points can be proven by referencing to official historic documents. For example, with the announcement of the emancipation of slaves, 20000 Afro American soldiers joined the Union army during the war.  This formed a main element in putting an end to the war, at the advantage of the Union. Another thing was that during the reconstruction era the blacks were racially segregated. There was discrimination, they were treated as inferior and violently abused because of their race.  And the oppressive Jim Crow laws are a witness to these injustices during this era. Despite  of  that, some of  the Afro-Americans accepted the  laws  in  order  to protect  themselves from  the  aggressive white  supremacists. While  others  did not accept this prolonged  oppression, and began to form civil  rights  movements, demanding justice  and equality  in  politics,  economic,  self-sufficiency  and  absolute independence  from the white.  One of the movements was the “Black Power” movement, which restored some dignity to the Afro-Americans.
The Rights of Blacks: Their State and Challenges.
Those  who  live and travel  between the  different states in America and  interact with people  in their daily  lives, will  discover that  racism  and discrimination still exist in the minds of the white. If you take a  look at  the  educational opportunities, economic growth,  political representation  and job opportunities,  you  will  find  that  most  of  the  Afro-Americans are  deprived  from  these  basic  benefits;  Insufficient healthcare system, discrimination in housing benefit its,  law-enforcement  injustices.  The Afro-Americans are the main victims of these injustices. Thus we are not surprised when we see a series of criminal aggression against them occurring frequently in such a pace.  But  what  is  surprising  is  the  continual high support  of the  Black-Africans  towards  the  democrats in elections. The same party in power as before, and the same oppression and injustices towards the black continue to repeat themselves. What is more unfortunate is that the President was of the same race, who did not pay any attention to the injustices of his own people: Rather his greatest fear was his political position and his clinging to power.
The current Anglo-Saxon generation has been raised with this kind of arrogance mentality, arrogance towards all kinds of people – especially the Black Americans. And history will never forget their past sufferings. Therefore, when we read about the killings of Black youth by the police or the white supremacists, we have to examine – as they say in criminology- the objectives and psychological motives to these crimes. From here we can say that the main motives to these crimes are not gun violence, as Obama tried to portray.  But the reality is that we cannot separate this violence with the fanatic white racists’ supremacists, which must be stopped by all means possible.

The  solution to this  fanaticism  should not only be confined  to  America:  This  is  because  the  same  American oppression towards the Blacks today, is practiced towards other communities around  the  world. The same level of oppression is exercised against the Muslims today.  Exercised by these racist white politicians, among them are Black politicians who are not real representatives of their community. And if they are not able to uphold their rights, then how can they defend the rights of others?

The American leaders, through their media, always try to display their innocence against racism.  Being in the forefront in describing others as racists, e.g. The Nazi and the Aryan racists. But the fact is that they cannot escape from their past and present crimes. The Fanaticism and the American people’s sense of dominance and subjugation towards other communities can never be censored by the American media.  They instead resorted to changing terminologies: calling discrimination, caste, superiority over the people as political and military domination, but the result is all the same.  And as Michael Brown and Freddie Gray were killed, then we have thousands of Muslims killed in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and Yemen. And the continuous killing of hundreds of Palestinians using weapons from the racist Americans.
O Afro-Americans, it is a pity that you play a part in this oppression against Muslims.  You are the ones who elect those who promise to continue waging war with us in our lands. You are the ones who elect those who promise to protect Israel, who aggressively and unjustly occupy our lands. This is a historic chance for you to review your actions, and to take a stand against these crimes in the face of these fanatics. As you condemn you will be condemned.  And as the say, whoever  accepts  injustice  will  be  the  first  to  be  burnt by its fire.
A BRIGHT FUTURE AND HOPE 
Islam prohibits discrimination, demolishes social castes and unites Muslims as a single body. There is no distinction between Black and White, Arab and non-Arab except through taqwa (God fearing). These are the principles of Islam that we call the people to. In reality,  we came across  American  demographic  statistics  and found out  that  a  third  of Muslims  in America are Afro-Americans.  And that Islam spreads fast among this community. Hence, we invite them to this religion, a religion that practically gives them justice from racial segregation. As  it  was  just  to Bilal  bin  Rabah,  the Black  habashi  (Former Ethiopian slave), who became  a master  among the masters  of Islam,  and a commander  among the  commanders of Islam.  Whosoever  lives  in  the  American  society  will  find  that Afro-Americans  are much  better than the whites in terms of morals and family responsibility. And this gives glad tidings and hope of changing the American reality.

A blind man who had Umm Walad. Umm Walad is a bounded woman whom her master has children with, so she is called Umm Walad and there are special rules that apply to her.

“Bare witness that her blood is invalidated!”
Meaning there is no compensation for her and there is no punishment for the one who killed her!.

The Reality of Ka’b bin Ashraf the Blasphemer

The story of Ka’b ibn al Ashraf!

Ka’b bin al Ashraf, was a Jewish leader and he was a very eloquent poet. When the news was carried to Madina of the victory of the Muslims in the battle of Badr and Ka’b ibn al Ashraf heard of that news he said

If this news is true, then being under the earth is better for us, then being on top of it. Meaning, it is better for us to die. What good is there in living after the Kuffar of Quraysh have been defeated.

And he started making poems in which he would lament the loss of the Mushrikeen and he would also speak against the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and the Muslims.

Then he went on to Makkah to present to them his poetry and to also join them in their losses.

And he went further and started mentioning Muslim women in his poetry. So the Prophet of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said Who will take care of Ka’b ibn Ashraf because he has harmed Allah and his Messenger?. Muhammad bin Maslamah (may Allah be pleased with him), one of the Ansar from the tribe of Aws said: .I will do so O Messenger of Allah! Do you want me to kill him?

The Prophet of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, Yes!

Muhammad bin al Maslamah had now given a promise; he has given his word that he would kill Ka’b ibn Ashraf!

He went back home and started thinking about this and it seemed to be quite a difficult thing. Ka’b ibn Ashraf was living in a fortress, in a Jewish area, surrounded by his supporters, so it was a very, very difficult thing to do! And he became quite concerned about this and his concern prevented him from eating and drinking except from that that would make him survive! For three days he would barely eat or drink anything.

That news reached the Prophet of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), so the Prophet called him and said .What.s wrong with you, Muhammad ibn Maslamah, is it true that you have stopped eating or drinking?

Muhammad ibn Maslamah said, yes The Prophet of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) asked him .Why?

He said, I have promised you something and I wonder whether I would be successful and able to fulfill it! The Prophet of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) told him

All what you have to do is do your effort and leave the rest on Allah Almighty.

Muhammad ibn Maslamah (may Allah be pleased with him) said, O Messenger of Allah, then you will have to allow me to speak against you!

So the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, Say whatever you want!

Muhammad bin Maslamah and a small group of Ansar, all from his tribe Aws, went to first visit Ka’b bin Ashraf to set up the trap for him. One of the men with Muhammad was Abu Na’ilah, it is mentioned that he was the foster brother of Ka’b bin al Ashraf.

They told Ka’b , This man has been a test from Allah to us, he has been a problem, he is a disaster. they are referring to Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and theArabs have all fought us and taken us as enemies because of him.

Ka’b told him .I already told you so, and you are going to see even worse times.

Muhammad ibn al Maslamah said .Well we want to wait and see how all of this will end. He is now trying to build rapport with him. So Ka’b, our financial situation has deteriorated because of this man, we want to borrow from you some bargain and we want to leave you a guarantee!

He said, .Well, leave me your children.

They said, We leave you our children and for the rest of their lives people will tell them that your parents have put you in for a small amount of bargain, it will be shame on them for the rest of their lives!

He said .Then you leave with me your women.

They said .How can we leave our women with you and you are the most handsome man? But we will bring with us and leave with you our weapons!

He said .Fine! 

Muhammad bin Maslamah set him up so that next time when they would bring their weapons with them, he would not be suspicious.

So they set an appointment and they came back to him and they called him late at night, as it was the right time.

His wife told him .I can smell blood in this voice! 

He said don’t worry this is Muhammad ibn Maslamah my friend, and it is my brother Abu Na.ilah. So it shows there was some good relationship between them, there was friendship since the time of Ignorance.

So he went down to meet them, Muhammad ibn Maslamah set up a sign with his companions he told them .When you see me grab at his head, then tear him apart with your swords.. This was the sign. 

So Ka’b came down and they told him .What about we go walking to Sh’b al A.jooz and spend our night over there talking?.

He said Fine.

So they were able to drag him away from his fortress, to this faraway place called Sh’b al A’jooz.

And when they reached there, Muhammad ibn Maslamah told Ka’b, Wow! This smell that is coming from you is so beautiful! (He had musk or some other perfume in his hair)

Can I smell it?

He said, .Yes, go ahead!

So Muhammad ibn Maslamah put his hand in his head and pulled it towards him and smelled it.

He said it’s wonderful! (This was a test- a trial)

The next time, he told him .Can you let me smell it again?

He said, .Yes, go ahead!

He grabbed him and the swords started striking at Ka’b ibn Ashraf. But they were not sufficient to kill him and he screamed for help. All the fortresses were lit up in a moment. Muhammad ibn

Maslamah said, I remembered that I had a dagger with me so I pulled it out and I stuck it in his stomach and pulled it down until it hit the pubic bone and then we left!

This is how Muhammad ibn Maslamah and his men from Aws dealt with the one who cursed the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)! 
Ibn Taymiyah mentions this story in his book As Sarim al Maslool ala Shatim arRasool. The drawn sword on the one who curses the Messenger and he mentions a few things, which we will go through.

First of all, he brings a narration from Al Waqidi one of the scholars of Seerah. Al Waqidi talks about the consequences of what happened as this was a very powerful and special operation the consequences of which were great. It sent a ripple among the Jewish community and the disbelieving community that was surrounding Madina!

So Al Waqidi says: The Jews mobilized along with Mushrikeen and came to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) in the morning and said,  Our man who was one of our noble men and leaders was assassinated last night!

They said Qutila Ghilah and Ghilah means assassination and this word also has some negative connotations because it means that the person was killed and taken by surprise, he didn’t know about it, it wasn’t a duel, it wasn’t a one-on-one, he was killed in secret without him knowing about it!

They said .He was assassinated without committing any crime!

Why was Ka’b bin al Ashraf killed, that was their question put to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him), because there was an agreement between the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) and all of the Jews. It’s well known in Seerah that when the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) came to Madina he had a peace agreement with all of the Jews.

Now Ka’b ibn al Ashraf was killed, WHY? HOW COME THAT HAPPENED? What did the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) say? The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said:

If he had calmed down, like others who follow his opinion or are on the same opinion as his have calmed down, he wouldn’t have been assassinated! But he has harmed us and he has defamed us with his poetry, and none of you would do this except we would deal with him with the sword!

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) is saying that there are many who have in their hearts the same belief as Ka’b bin Ashraf; he wasn’t killed because of that! So he was not killed because of his disbelief, he was not killed because he hated the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him); he was not killed because he hated the Muslims, NO! There are many people who have that disease in their hearts and we have left them alone. .If he had calmed down like other people calmed down, we wouldn’t have assassinated him. But he spoke against us, he spoke against me and he defamed me with his poetry.

And then he made it clear to the Jews: If any one of you, you the Jews or the Mushrikeen, try to.

 Seerah meaning the life story of the ProphetAs Sarim al Maslool ala shatim ar Rasool (Evidences from the Sunnah on the killing of a Zimmi who curses the Messenger of Allah) defame me through your words this will be the way we deal with you, there is nothing between us and you except the sword! There will be no dialogue, there will be no forgiveness, there will be no building of bridges, there will be no attempts of reconciliation there will be only the sword between me and you, and he made it very clear. And then, he called them to come and sign a document in which they all state their agreement that they will not speak against him.

Ibn Taymiyah says, and this is evidence that harming Allah and his Messenger is a reason to encourage Muslims to kill whoever does that even if they have a contract with the Muslims, even if there is a covenant!

Ibn Taymiyah in his book responds to some of the arguments and doubts that were placed against this Huqm. So he uses this story as an evidence to refute those arguments.

Remarks 

Some people tried to twist the meaning of this hadith and say that Ka’b was killed because he was encouraging the disbelievers to fight against Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) and not because of his words.

Ibn Taymiyah says .NO! He was killed because of his poetry which was even before he set out to go to Makkah. So it had nothing to do with him going to Makkah and encouraging them to fight the Muslims, it was specifically because of his poetry!

And then he says,

Everything that Ibn Ashraf did was harm by the tongue. His lamenting of the killed of the disbelievers and his encouraging them to fight, and his cursing and his defamation and his putting down of the religion of Islam and preferring the religion of the disbelievers, all of this were words by the tongue. And he did not do anything that included physical fighting of the believers and what he did was harmed the Muslims with his tongue. And this is a Hujjah. This is evidence against anyone who would argue in these issues. And it is clear that the blood of such a person who harms Allah and his Messenger by poetry and defamation is not protected by any means.

The story of U’qbah ibn Abi Mu’eet and Nadr bin Abi Harith the Blasphemers during the battle of Badr

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) treated these people (U’qbah ibn Abi Mu’eet and Nadr bin Abi Harith the Blasphemers) differently and it is very clear! So let’s read their story……..

In the battle of Badr, there were seventy prisoners of war from the disbelievers of Quraysh. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) asked  that they be presented to him, so that he would look at them one by one.
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was starring at Nadr bin Harith. Nadr bin Harith looked in to the eyes of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and saw something, so he told the man next to him, “Listen, I am going to be killed, I can see death in the eyes of the Messenger of Allah!”
The man told him “No, you are just exaggerating, you are too afraid, you are just terrified!”
He said “No, I am telling you, I saw death in the eyes of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)”.
Then Nadr bin Hartih called Mus’ab bin U’mayr who was his relative and he told him “Go to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and tell him to treat me like everybody else, treat me like a man from my people, if he is going to kill them then let him kill me, if he is going to forgive them let him forgive me!”.
Mus’ab bin U’mayr told him “You are the one who said what you have said about the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and you are the one who spoke against the Book of Allah!”
Nadr bin Harith was the one who used to hold the Halaqa next to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) to compete with him. He traveled to Persia to learn stories and then he came back and told the disbelievers “Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is telling you tales, I have some better tales to tell you, come and listen to me!”
He told him “Please Mus’ab speak to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)”
He said, “Aren’t you the one who used to torture his companions!”
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) called Nadr bin Harith and told Ali bin Abi Talib to execute him. 

He was singled out!

At that time they were traveling back to Madina. When they reached a particular area he executed Nadr bin Harith and then when they traveled a little further he summoned U’qbah ibn Abi Mu’eet for execution.
Uqbah said “Woe onto me, why am I singled out for execution! All of the men here with me are your enemies; all the men here with me have fought you, all of the men  with me are from Quraysh my tribe, why are you singling me out?
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said,
   “Because of your animosity towards Allah and his Messenger!”
He said “O Muhammad treat me as one of my people, if you execute them execute me, if you free them free me, if you take compensation for their freedom then take what you want from me!” and then he said “O Muhammad who will take care of my children?
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said,
“Hell-fire! Take him O A’sim and cut off his head!”
And then the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said,
“What an evil man you were! I don’t know of a man who was a disbeliever in Allah and his Book and his Messenger like you! You harmed the Prophet of Allah, so I praise Allah the one who killed you and the one who has pleased my eyes by seeing you die!”
