About 1400 years ago in a battle called OHOD this happened...
In the aftermath of the battle where the Muslims were defeated, bodies of the deceased martyrs and many wounded Muslims were all around the battlefield.
One of the Sahaba (Followers of Prophet Mohammad) seeing the wounded laying on the battlefield with the sun up in the sky on such a hot day, he brought a bottle of water and went off searching for the wounded to give them some water.
As he was walking, he heard a Muslim in agony. He ran to him to find 3 very badly injured Muslims. They were all laying on the floor relatively close to each other. It was obvious from their injuries that they were not going to make it.
He went to the first one to give him some water. The injured Muslim looked at him and said: "No, give it to my brother in Allah over there!" (pointing to one of the other two badly injured Musilms).
The man with the bottle ran off to the second injured man and tried to give him some water to drink. But, the injured Muslim said:" No, don't give it to me, give it to the injured man over there !" (pointing to the third man laying on the ground).
The man with the bottle ran off to the third injured man, but he found out that he had already passed away.
He turned back to go to the first two men to find out that they too have passed away.
It is amazing how different the Muslim at the time of the might of Islam were from many Muslims we have these days.
Many people nowadays have become so selfish and self centered, unlike those mentioned in the story above.
Those Sahaba favoured other Muslims over themselves... even while they were dying!
I wonder if such a generation will ever exist again in the foreseen future!?!
