Asma ahl Badr

assalamualaikum warhmatullah

After searching for such a long time, finally I managed to find the list of the name of people who participated in Ghazwatul Badar. It's all started when Imam Djafer told that somebody was asking him to list down the names of Asma Ahl Badr so that he can make a caligraphy out of them. The reason why I think we Muslim should know them by heart is simply because they were the one described as the best people in Islamic history. In fact the group of angels unleashed by Allah in that Ghazwah was also known as the best angel among the angel of Allah. When I first went through it, sooner then I realized that most of the names were unheard before. Some Fuqahak estimate that there were at least 124000 sahabah and sahabiah during the life of Rasullulah Saw. If I were to remember 313 names of Asma Ahl Badr, there is still 123687 names remaining. And how about their story? I guess it is a long way run...but at least become accustomed by their name would probably a good starter.

maa shaa' Allaah ..jazaak Allaahu khayr for the sharing ..
it reminds me what shaykh Yasir birjas was telling us during the TCE class @ CP. When we're learning about the early fuqahaa' (ya'ni during the time of the Prophet,sal Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, and his companions, radhiyallahu 'anhum ajma'een),he started out the class by asking us to write down the asmaa' as-sahaabah that we knew by heart in 2 minutes. Then he asked the class, "how many of you managed to write down ~ 20 names?" only 1-2 persons raised their hands. He moved on with the same exercise for 3 rounds and finally made his invaluable comment," ya jamaa'ah, do you realize that there's almost ~100,000 sahaabah of the prophet, and yet most of us know only few of them(~0.1%)? How can we be like them when we fail even to know their very names, let alone their contributions and jihaad?"

laqad sadaqa mu'allimee (verily my teacher has said the truth) ..

may Allaah, subhaanahu wa ta'aala, increase us in knowledge of the prophet and his beloved companions, aameen.

"Allahumma 3allimnaa maa yanfa3oonaa, wa anfa3naa bi maa 3allimtanaa, wa zidnaa 3ilmaa, aameen."
