Chapter : The merits of the participants in the Battle of Badr (Allah be pleased with them) and the story of Hatib b. Abu Balta’a.

Jabir reported that a slave of Hatib came to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) complaining against Hatib and said: Hatib will definitely go to Hell. (But) Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: You tell a lie; he would not get into that for he had taken part in Badr and in (the expedition of) Hudaibiya.
