and Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad
peace be upon him)
Saeed al-Khudri (radiyallahu anhu) narrates:
waged battle at the side of Rasulullah
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when 16 days
of Ramadaan had past. Some of us fasted
and some did not. Neither did those who
fasted rebuke those who did not fast;
nor did those who did not fast rebuke
those who fasted." [Muslim]
The Battle of Badr was fought on the 17th
of Ramadaan in the 2nd year of the Hijrah.
This was the first Ramadaan when fasting
was ordained. The 313 ill-equipped Muslims
faced 1000 fully-armed foes. Some Muslims
chose not to fast, as travellers are allowed
to delay their fast to another time. Others
felt strong enough to fast. Neither side
rebuked the other. The best of Muslims
respected each other’s opinions
even when they strongly differed. May
Allah grant us the ability to implement
such etiquette as well.
