Posted by Ady on May 14th, 2019

Masjid Abdullah bin Abbas (RA) is located very close to the grave of Abdullah Bin Abbas (RA), the paternal cousin of the Prophet ﷺ. He is prominent among Muslims regarding his knowledge particularly in Tafseer (exegesis of the Quran and Hadiths.

He (RA) was the son of Abbas (RA), the paternal uncle of the Prophet (ﷺ). His mother was Umm al-Fadl, the sister of Maymoonah (RA) (one of the wives of Prophet ﷺ. He was born about three years before the Hijra. He was taken to the Prophet ﷺ by his mother when he was born. He was put with saliva on the newborn’s tongue, by the Prophet ﷺ. And that was the opening of the close relationship between them. If you want to realize the relationship between Prophet ﷺ and Abdullah Bin Abbas (RA), so you must visit the Masjid of Abdullah by getting 3* November Budget Umrah Package after proceeding the minor pilgrimage.

As he grew up, he always remained by the Prophet’s (ﷺ) side to serve the minor services like fetching water for ablution. He would offer Salah with the Prophet (ﷺ) and participate in assemblies, journeys, and expeditions along with Prophet ﷺ. The Prophet (ﷺ) would pay him sympathetically on the shoulder and pray, “O Lord, grant him the knowledge to deep understand about the religion of Islam, and educate him in the meaning and interpretation of matters.” Ibn Abbas (RA) said, “The Prophet ﷺ wiped my chest and said ‘O Lord, grant him wisdom.’” Ibn Abbas (RA) devoted his life to the pursuit of learning and knowledge, following the Prophet (ﷺ) and memorizing his teachings.

Sa`ad ibn Abi Waqqas (RA) said, “I have never seen someone who was faster in accepting, who had more knowledge and greater wisdom than Ibn Abbas. I have seen Umar (RA) send him to discuss difficult problems in the company of experts of Badar from among the Muhajireen and Ansaar. Whatever Ibn Abbas (RA) would speak, Umar (RA) would not disregard.

It was the devotion to an understanding about Islam that he was given the titles of ’Hibr-ul–Ummat’ (the most learned man of Islam) and ‘Bahrul Ulum’ (ocean of knowledge) in his time. He described 1660 hadith and is generally viewed as the most knowledgeable of the Companions in Tafseer. He died in 68 AH in Taif and is buried in the masjid shown above. Muhammad bin Ali (RA) led the funeral service and remarked, “Today we have lost our godly leader” which can be visited by those who take steps from the home and away travel umrah to the Holy Kaaba in order to perform Umrah.

Wahab bin Munabbah reported, “Abdullah bin Abbas (RA) lost his range of vision in his old age. I once led him to the Haram in Makkah, where he heard a group of people bartering hot words among themselves. He asked me to lead him to them. He said them ‘Assalamu Alaikum.’ They invited him to sit down, but he declined by saying that let me tell you about persons whom Allah holds in high esteem and those are whom His fear has driven to absolute silence, even though they are neither helpless nor dumb. Rather they are keepers of good speakers and sensible. But persistent praise of Allah’s name has so over-powered their brains that their hearts are scared and their lips sealed. When they get established in this state, they make haste towards morality. Whither have you people departed from this course? After this warning, I never saw any meeting in the Haram.”
