Note: Munafiq-e-Azam se Muraad hai Raees ul Munafiqeen Abdullah bin Ubay Hai.
We all know about the kind of treatment Abdullah bin Ubay extended to the Prophet (PBUH). He was known as the Raeesul Munafiqeen (the leader of the hypocrites) in Medina. He deserted the Muslim army along with 300 followers in the battle of Uhud, and with his attitude and words hurt the Prophet (PBUH) grievously yet, when he was dying, this is what happened according to Martin Lings in his book, Mohammad: His Life Based On The Earliest Sources: “The Prophet [PBUH] visited him in his illness and found that the imminence of death had changed him. He asked the Prophet [PBUH] to give him a garment of his own in which he could be shrouded and to accompany his body to the grave…he spoke saying, ‘O messenger of God, I hope that thou wilt pray beside my bier and ask forgiveness of God for my sins’…and after his death (the Prophet [PBUH]) did as he had promised.”
