The intimacy of the little uncle Hamzah bin Abdul Muttalib ra with the Messenger of Allah
When referring to his family tree, his name is Hamzah bin Abdul Muttalib bin Hasyim bin Abdul Manaf Al-Quraisyi Al-Hasyimi. He has a family name or nickname abu imarah. She is the sibling of Syafiah bint Abdul Muttalib, mother of Zubair bin Lay.
Hamzah bin Abdul Muttalib has a unique character, he is a firm and hard character. He studied in the house of a ruler and leader of the Quraysh, so this condition made him a person who had strong self-confidence. He can be proud of his lineage origins and his position is quite respectable among his people. It all shapes his attitude and personality.
With this kind of majesty he lived, together with the youths and leaders of the Quraysh he drank a lot of worldly pleasures. Hunting animals in the desert, horse racing, and drinking liquor. He’s done everything.
The desert that was so vast in Arabia became his playing field, from there he knew the art of war well and stabbed a spear quickly. Most of his time was spent on his horse hunting camels.
The description of Hamzah bin Abdul Muttalib’s body can be described as follows: his body is large, his skin is olive, his face is clean and bright, his chest is broad, reflects firmly on his body’s joints, his hands are hard and strong, if his hands are already swinging a sword to chop wood, for example. , it is certain that the wood fell. That’s why his name is widely known among the people of Mecca and its surroundings as a mighty and skilled horse. Besides that, his intelligence is unquestionable, he is able to make the right decisions in difficult conditions. Almost everyone is afraid of him, wherever he goes, people who pass by will respect him.
Among all the uncles of the prophet, Hamzah bin Abdul Muttalib was the closest person to him, even since childhood after he was born. This is not surprising because he belongs to the family of Muhammad bin Abdullah, he can be said to be a little uncle, because his birth age is only two years apart from the Messenger of Allah. In fact, both of them were breastfed by Tsuwaibah, the slave of the evil ashes. From here Hamzah bin Abdul Muttalib can be considered as a brother according to the Prophet.
Apart from being an uncle and brother to the Prophet Muhammad SAW, Hamzah bin Abdul Muttalib also had a close relationship with the Prophet from his mother’s path. Take a look at the following genealogy: Rasulullah SAW had a mother named Aminah bint Wahab bin Abdul Manaf bin Zahrah. Meanwhile, Hamzah’s mother was named Halah bint Wahab bin Abdul Manaf bin Zahrah. Zahrah can be said to be the great-grandmother of the Prophet’s mother.
These two children grew up together. Having fun, playing games, joking, became the daily activities of the two of them. The closeness between the two of them is like two close friends who can’t be separated anymore.
When he decided to marry Khadijah bint Khuwalid, the Messenger of Allah was confused about finding the right person to propose to his future wife, after searching it turned out that in his eyes there was no one more reliable than Hamzam bin Abdul Muttalib. Finally the two of them set out to ask Khadija to be the wife of the Messenger of Allah from her father. After the age of both of them grew up, there were differences in character between these two human children, the Messenger of Allah became a person who liked to contemplate and be alone before finally revelation came down to him and lived a holy life.
Meanwhile Hamzah bin Abdul Muttalib became a handsome young man and was quite reckoned with in the midst of his people. His days are only filled with playing and competing. Not infrequently he rode his camel and challenged young men his age to race a camel with him. He also often challenged the Meccan youths to a strong fight to drink khamr.
