Saidina Qais Ibn Sa'ad RA

{Illustration Only}

Saidina Qais RA bin Sa'ad bin Ubadah comes from the most generous Arab family of his noble descendants. Saidina Qais b Sa'ad RA. Son of Saad b Ubadah the famous companion.He belonged to the banu Khazraj.Saidina Qais RA was also known as Abul Fazal, Abu Abdullah ...
About his family, Rasulullah once said, "Generosity is the character of this family!"
Saidina Qais RA is a clever and smart man who shows his tricks, intelligence, and intelligence. Saidina Qais RA once said honestly about himself, "If it were not for Islam, I was able to make a trick that no Arab could match up!" Because, he was a very intelligent, resourceful, and energetic brain. At Shiffin War, Saidina Qais RA stood on Caliph Saidina Ali's side against Mu'awiyah RA. At that time Saidina Qais RA planned his own tricks that would probably destroy Mu'awiyah and his followers one day or sometime later. Only then, when Saidina Qais RA re-examined the trick that had squeezed his intelligence, he realized that it was a harmful evil trick. Saidina Qais RA remembered the word of God:

سْتِكْبَارًا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَمَكْرَ السَّيِّئِ ۚ وَلَا يَحِيقُ الْمَكْرُ السَّيِّئُ إِلَّا بِأَهْلِهِ ۚ فَهَلْ يَنْظُرُونَ إِلَّا سُنَّتَ الْأَوَّلِينَ ۚ فَلَنْ تَجِدَ لِسُنَّتِ اللَّهِ تَبْدِيلًا ۖ وَلَنْ تَجِدَ لِسُنَّتِ اللَّهِ تَحْوِيلًا

Because of their arrogance on the face of the earth and for the evil plan. The evil plan will not be over besides the person who plans it himself. They will not wait for the sunnah (the Day of Resurrection) to those who were before. You will never find a replacement for the sunnah of Allah, nor will it befall the deviation of Allah's sunnah.” QS: Faathir | Paragraph: 43

Saidina Qais RA immediately threw away his plan and asked for forgiveness to Allah. At the same time he said, "By Allah, if Mu'awiyah can defeat us later, his victory is not because of his intelligence, but because of our piety and taqwa." The Anshar youth who are part of the Khazraj tribe come from a large family leader, the noble qualities of a great leader to the great leader. Saidina Qais RA is the son of Sa'ad bin Ubadah, a Khazraj leader, whom we will meet his life story in the next.

When Sa'ad converted to Islam, he brought his son Qais and handed it to Rasulullah , saying, "This is your servant, O Rasulullah ." Rasulullah all the signs of virtue and characteristics of goodness in Qais. Therefore, he embraces and brings him closer to him, who furthermore becomes Saidina Qais RA who are always near him. Anas, Rasulullah said, "The position of Qais bin Sa'ad on the side of Rasulullah was like the position of guards on the side of the leader."

Before entering Islam, Qais treated people with all their ingenuity, and they were helpless against their cunning. There is no one in the city of Madinah and its surroundings that does not care about this calamity and they are very vigilant. After embracing Islam, Islam taught him to treat humans with honesty, not with cunning. Saidina Qais RA turns out to be one of the most devout youths of Islam and afterwards throws away his cunning and will not repeat his cunning actions in the past.

Whenever facing a difficult event and remembered his old practice, Saidina Qais RA immediately realized and then uttered the words that had been narrated to us, "If it were not for Islam, I would make a trick that the Arabs could not match." another character on him who is more prominent than his ingenuity other than philanthropy on him. Generous and generous is not a new character for Saidina Qais RA, as it comes from a generous family of well-known generous and generous.

Saidina Qais RA courage had been known in all the battlefields he performed with Rasulullah while he was still alive. And it remains to be known in the battles he had passed after his death. The courage that is always based on truth and honesty in lieu of fraud and cunning, in an open and forward way, not by spreading the issue from behind, nor by bad plots, which of course make the culprit must bear the pressing difficulties. Since Saidina Qais RA threw away his extraordinary ability in deciplating fluid and tongue-tongue, and he turned to the brave and open-minded man. Saidina Qais RA is satisfied with this new disposition, and is willing to bear the consequences and difficulties alternating with the willing heart.

True courage emanates from the relief of one's own heart, not because of the impulses of lust and certain advantages, but because of sincerity and recognition of the truth. This is evident when there is a dispute between Caliph Saidina Ali RA  and Mu'awiyah, we see Saidina Qais RA prefer to isolate himself and keep trying to find the truth from the gaps of his stability. Finally, when Saidina Qais RA saw the truth was on Caliph Saidina Ali RA's side, he immediately got up and stood beside him bravely bravely, firm, and fought furiously.

On the battlefield Shiffin, Jamal, and Nahrawan,
Saidina Qais RA is one of the heroes who fought without fear of death. Saidina Qais RA was the one who brought the Ansar flag by shouting: This flag is the flag of unity ... Fighting with Rasulullah and Gabriel the bearer of assistance ... Will not be afraid if only Ansar raisers .. And no one else becomes his supporter ..

Saidina Qais RA was appointed by Ali as governor of Egypt. However, Mu’awiyah's eyes always targeted this region. He saw Egypt as the most precious diamond gem on a crown he coveted very much. Therefore, not long after Saidina Qais RA took office as an emir in the region, Mu'awiyah was worried that later Saidina Qais RA would become an obstacle to his dream of Egypt for all time, even if he won victory over Caliph Saidina Ali RA with a decisive victory.

Furthermore Mu'awiyah tried with deception and deception - which was not limited to just one form - to arouse Ali's anger at
Saidina Qais RA, until finally Ali called him from Egypt. On this occasion, Saidina Qais RA had a favorable opportunity to use his intelligence to develop a plan. With his intelligence, Saidina Qais RA knew that Mu'awiyah had a role in slandering him, after he failed to withdraw Saidina Qais RA to his side to antagonize Ali and use his leadership to help him.

To break the trick, Saidina Qais RA strengthened his support for Ali and the truth on his side. Ali was a leader who was then a place of loyal settlement and trust from Qais bin Sa'ad bin Ubadah. Thus, Saidina Qais RA did not feel the slightest feeling that Ali had fired him from Egypt. For Saidina Qais RA, there is no sense of power, no meaning in rank, leadership, and position. All this is for him to devote himself to defending his beliefs and religion. When the Egyptian amiress is a way to devote themselves to the truth, his attitude to defending Ali in the field is another way of no less significant and impressive.

Qais's courage reached its peak of honesty and maturity after Ali was martyred and Al-Hasan was charged.
Saidina Qais RA regarded Al-Hasan as a suitable figure according to the Shari'ah to become the Commander of the Faithful, so that Saidina Qais RA was engaged to him and stood beside Al-Hasan as a defender, irrespective of the dangers that would befall. When Mu'awiyah forced them to draw the sword,Saidina Qais RA is rose to lead five thousand soldiers with shaved heads as bare heads as a sign of mourning over Ali's death. However, Hasan finally succumbed and preferred to wound the wounded Muslims, by ordering to stop the war who had spent the life and wealth, then consult Mu'awiyah and then to Mu'awiyah.
