Masjid Shaikhain

Masjid Shaikhain is the place where Prophet (ﷺ) prayed the night before the battle of Uhud. The preparation for the battle was made here.

After the Jummah prayers, the Prophet (ﷺ) prayed Asr maghrib, isha and fair here.

Hadeeth and the Incident

This is the location where all the people of Muslims of Madinah were called during the day before Uhud battle. Woman, children and the elderly were given shelter. The battle was planned, troops were selected at the very same location.

Some people were taken for the battle, where others were safeguarding the woman and children. 

There were some young boys who wanted to join the battle of Uhud. Prophet (ﷺ) did not allow them. Later some of them were allowed to join proving their capabilities. The incident followed is exciting.

Rafi Raliallahu Anhu, who was a young boy at the time was introduced to the Prophet (ﷺ) as an excellent archer.

 His father, Khudaji Raliallahu Anhu, recommended him. And he was allowed to be in the battle. When Samrah bin Jundub Raliallahu Anhu learned about Rafi Raliallahu Anhu was accepted for the battle, he complained that his rejection was unfair since he would defeat Rafi Raliallahu Anhu in a wrestling battle. When Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) heard this, and he asked them to wrestle, and Samrah Raliallahu Anhu won, and he was allowed to join the battle. Likewise, few other young boys were allowed proving their capabilities.
