  1. Very interesting. I didn’t know a number of these :)

    About Uthman ibn `Affan – you mean he married two of the Prophet (saws)’s daughters right?

    I’m curious about Sa’ad ibn Abi Waqqas – any idea what incident made the Prophet (saws) say that? It rings some kind of bell but I forget.

  2. Yes, daughters. that was major typo :P

    I can’t recall the exact waqiah but I know that it was in the Battle of Uhud and Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas had thrown the first arrow in Allah’s cause so the Prophet (S) saw him fighting really hard and maybe he said it because of that. Not completely sure about that but I know it was in the battle of Uhud.
