5th of Zillhijjah is the Martyrdom Anniversay of one of the greates Sahabi e Rasool (saaws) about whom the Rasool e Akram (saaws) Said .
” Sky have never shadowed any person and the earth has not sheltered a person more truthful than Abu Zarr Ghaffari .” He was from the tribe of “Bani Ghifar”. When he heard about the Prophet of Islam and found signs of glory in him he passionately moved to makkah and accepted Islam
After the demise of Rasool e Akram (saaws) , most of the Sahabah reverted to their earlier faith or remained munafiq , not Hazrat Abu Zarr Ghaffari . he remained a steadfast follower of the true successor of Prophet (saaws)
He used to walk taunting peoples in the street “those who hoard up gold and silver and do not spend it in Allah’s way, announce to them a painful chastisement”, He intended to taunt the khalifah and his companions who had plundered the public treasures.
Usman exiled Abu Zarr to a land with a bad climate near Medina called “Rabadhah”. Abu Zarr died in that deserted land while he did not even have a shroud to be buried with.
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)had said, He will live alone, die alone, be resurrected alone, and enter the Paradise alone”.He was living alone in that desert land with his only daughter . When the time came , Allah sent a travelling group who did the burial of the departed Sahabah .
