The Love of Hazrat Zaid bin Dathinah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) for Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)

When the disbelievers were about to execute the great Sahaabi, Hazrat Zaid bin Dathinah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), they asked him, “Would you be happier if Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was in your place and you were left free to be with your family?”

His spontaneous response was, “By Allah Ta’ala! I cannot even bear that I be sitting comfortably with my family while even a thorn is pricking Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)!” On hearing this, Abu Sufyaan (who was a non-Muslim at that time but later on accepted Islam) remarked, “There is no parallel anywhere in the world to the love which the companions of Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) have for him.” (Seerah Ibnu Hishaam 2/172)
