Stories of Sahabah:Khahab ibn al-Aratt (Radiallaho Anho) SubhanAllah the strength of his Imaan. If 20 Muslims were to take the place of him they wouldn’t have measured up to equal one tenth of the Taqwa he had. It’s clear to see that his conviction of Islam was embedded in his heart.

Khahab (Radiallaho Anho) went under excruciating pain but his Imaan was relentless. He became a victim of abuse and torment after he renounced the Idols that Umm Anmaar believed in. Once she saw the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihi Wassallam) speaking to Khahab (Radiallaho Anho) at his workshop and she flew into a blind rage. Every day after that, for several days, she went to Khahab’s (Radiallaho Anho) workshop and punished him by placing a redhot iron from the furnace on his head. The agony was unbearable and he often fainted.”

On the Authority of Qays Ibn Abi Hazim related Khahab Ibn al-Arrat, said,
“We complained to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace while he was using his cloak as a cushion in the shade of the Kabaa. We said to him, ‘Will you not ask for help for us? Will you not pray to Allah for us?

“He said, “There was a man among those before you for whom a ditch was dug in the earth and he was placed in it. Then a saw was brought and places on his head and he would be cut in two. He would be raked with iron combs which would remove his flesh from his bones or sinews, and that would not deter him from his deen. By Allah, this business will be complete so that a traveller can go from san’a to Hadramawt fearing only Allah, or the wolf for his sheep, but you are trying to hasten things. “ 6544 Sahih Bukhari
This man (Radiallaho Anho) was going under excruciating pain. He had a legitimate reason to complain to the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihi Wassallam). And subhanAllah the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihi Wassallam) answers verily you are men that are hasty. -Khahab (Radiallaho Anho) prayed for the punishment of Umm Anmaar and her brother. Soon after he was relieved from the torment of his oppressors. The Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihi Wassallam) gave permission for the Sahaba to migrate to Medina.
