Callow Prince Maktum


"I've heard enough of your protests, Father. I know I'm fully able to stand on the field of battle," I argued as I shook my ruffled brown hair and marched towards the throne. Though the soldiers were silent, I believed they supported me. The country had long faced conflict, which was why my father was forced to fight from a young age, and any reasonable person would say I should be given the same chance. Moreover, I knew I wouldn't have the support of my people until I had proven myself.

Name originEdit

Abdullah Ibn Umm-Maktum was the son of Qays Ibn Sayd and Aatikah Bint Abdullah. He was blind by birth and hence his mother was called Umm-Maktum (Mother of the concealed one). Ibn Umm-Maktum was a cousin of Khadijah bint Khuwaylid, Muhammad's first wife.

Abdullah Ibn Umm-Maktum was among the first converts to Islam. Muhammad sent him and Mus`ab ibn `Umair to Medina for teaching Qur'an to the inhabitants before the Hijra took place. He and Bilal Ibn Rabah were chosen as muezzins in Medina by Muhammad. When Muhammad left Medina for participating in battles, he was given the responsibility of leading the prayers.

Abdullah Ibn Umm-Maktum requested Umar, the second Caliph of Islam, to let him take part in Jihad in spite of his blindness. Umar allowed him to take part in the Battle of al-Qādisiyyah in 636 C.E. He served in the battle as the standard bearer for the Muslim side, and he was killed in the fighting.
