Chapter : The merits of Jarir b. ‘Abdullah (Allah be pleased with him).

Jabir reported that there was in pre-Islamic days a temple called Dhu’l-Khalasah and it was called the Yamanite Ka’ba or the northern Ka’ba. Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said unto me: Will you rid me of Dhu’l-Khalasah and so I went forth at the head of 350 horsemen of the tribe of Ahmas and we destroyed it and killed whomsoever we found there. Then we came back to him (to the Holy Prophet) and informed him and he blessed us and the tribe of Ahmas.
