A caravan from the tribe of Bani Tamim seeking prophets.a.w.’s advise as to who among them should be their leader.Two prominent companions began to offer their suggestionswhich lead to differences of opinion which intensified into anargument with raised voices.On that occasion this verse was revealed.

  51. 51. A companion by the name of Tsabit ibn Qays, who were amongthem, after hearing this verse, left, and kept himself in his houseweeping and crying for several days. People began to notice hisabsence, until the Prophet s.a.w. that came to know about it,summon for him.When asked as to the reason for this, Tsabit ibn Qays explained:“It is concerning that verse which warned us not to raise our voicesabove yours. O Messenger of Allah.... for (you see) I have a very loudvoice. I am worried that because of this, all my deeds would bevoid.”All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013))
  52. 52. The prophet s.a.w. then said, “You are not that person whomthis verse is speaking about. You will live and die in righteousness.”Regarding this Tsabit ibn Qays, when a verse came saying thatAllah does not like those who are proud and arrogant, he came tothe Prophet s.a.w. crying. He was worried for himself since he isalways leading his tribesman. He was very concerned that perhapsAllah was referring to him.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013))
  53. 53. Such was the sensitivity shown by this companion whom theProphet s.a.w always gave assurance to him that he is not the onewho is being said by the verse. On the contrary, he, Tsabit ibn Qays,was destined to be amongst those honoured by Allah s.w.t. It was inthe campaign during a battle in Yamamah that Tsabit ibn Qays wasbestowed with Shaheed (martyrdom). Even after this there weresigns of his Karamah (bestowal of miracles upon the righteous).
