"O Messenger of Allah! I was absent from the first battle you fought against the pagans. (By Allah) if Allah gives me a chance to fight the pagans, no doubt. Allah will see how (bravely) I will fight".

Only his sister could recognize his body by his fingers.[2][3][4] Anas ibn Malik thought the following verse of Quran was revealed concerning him and other men of his sort:

"Among the believers are men true to what they promised Allah. Among them is he who has fulfilled his vow [to the death], and among them is he who awaits [his chance]. And they did not alter [the terms of their commitment] by any alteration".[5]
