Abu Ubaydah Ibn Al-Jarrah

“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 fate that you see me in.”

“Peace be upon you and the mercy of God.”

Abu Ubaydah then turned to Muadh ibn Jabal and said, “O Muadh, perform the prayer with the people (be their leader).” At this, his pure soul departed.

Muadh got up and said: “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.”
