      Hadhrat Bilal
(Radhiyallaho anho) and his Sufferings:


Hadhrat Bilal
(Radhiyallaho anho) is one of the best known of the galaxy of Sahabah as
moazzin of the Prophet's(Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) masjid. He was an
Abyssinian slave of a disbeliever in Mecca. His conversion to Islam was,
naturally, not liked by his master and he was, therefore, persecuted
mercilessly. Ummay ah bin Khalaf , who was the worst enemy of Islam, would make
him lie down on the burning sand at midday and would place a heavy stone on his
chest, so that he could not even move a limb. He would then say to him:

"Renounce Islam
or swelter and die."

Even under these
afflictions, Bilal (Radhiyallaho anho) would exclaim:-

One (Allah). "Ahad"-The One (Allah).

He was whipped at
night and with the cuts thus received, made to lie on the burning ground during
the day to make him either forsake Islam or to die a lingering death from 
The torturers would get tired and take turns (Abu Jahl, Umayyah and others) and
vie with one another in afflicting more and more painful punishment, but
Hadhrat Bilal (Radhiyallaho anho) would not yield. At last Abu Bakr
(Radhiyallaho anho) bought his freedom, and he became a free Muslim. As Islam
taught implicitly the oneness of the Almighty Creator, while the idolaters of
Mecca believed in many gods and goddesses with minor godlings, therefore Bilal 
anho) repeated:

"Ahad (The One),
Ahad (The One)."

This shows his love
and devotion to Allah. Allah was so dear to him that no amount of persecution
could distract him from reciting His Holy name. It is said that the urchins of
Mecca would drag him in the streets, with his words "Ahad!, Ahad!"
ringing in their wake.

Look how Allah rewarded
his steadfastness! He was to have the honor of becoming the Prophet's moazzin.
He was always to remain with him at home and abroad to call out the Azaan for
his Salaat. After the Prophet's death it became very hard for him to continue
his stay in Madinah where he would miss him at every step and in every corner. 
therefore left Madinah, and decided to pass the rest of his life striving in
the path of Allah. Once he beheld the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) in
his dream saying to him:

How is it that you never visit me."

No sooner did he get
up than he set out for Madinah. On reaching there, Hadhrat Hasan and Hadhrat
Husain (Radhiyallaho anhuma) (The Prophet's (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam)
grandsons requested him to call out the Azaan. He could not refuse them, for
they were very dear to him. But as soon as the Azaan was called, the people of
Madinah cried openly out of their anguish at the memory of the happy old days
of the Prophet's (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) time. Even the women came out of
their houses weeping. Hadhrat Bilal (Radhiyallaho anho) left Madinah again
after a few days and died in Damascus in 20 A.H.
