THALHAH BIN UBAIDILLAH, SYAHID YANG BERJALAN DI MUKA BUMITHALHAH BIN UBAIDILLAH, MARTYR WHO STILL ALIVE

“Siapa yang ingin melihat orang berjalan di muka bumi sesudah mengalami kematiannya, lihatlah Thalhah!”

Itu adalah ucapan Rasulullah SAW saat perang Uhud terjadi. Saat itu pasukan Muslim telah terpecah pelah sehigga hanya tersisa beberapa orang di antara mereka termasuk Thalhah bin Ubaidillah.
Kemudian Rasulullah dan kamum muslimin yang naik ke bukit dihadang oleh musuh. “Siapa yang berani melawan mereka dia akan menjadi temanku kelak di surga,” seru Rasulullah.

“Saya, wahai Rasulullah,” jawab Thalhah.

“Tidak, jangan engkau! Engkau harus tetap di tempatmu.”

“Saya, wahai Rasulullah,” kata seorang prajurit Anshar.

“Ya, majulah,” kata Rasulullah.

Prajurit Anshar itu maju melawan prajurit kafir yang ingin membunuh Rasulullah hingga menemui kesyahidannya. Rasulullah meneruskan perjalanan, tetapi dihadang kembali oleh tentara musyrikin.

“Siapa yang berani melawan mereka ini?” seru Rasulullah lagi.

“Saya, wahai Rasulullah,” kata Thalhah mendahului yang lain.

“Jangan, engkau tetaplah di tempatmu!”

“Lalu seorang prajurit Anshar menggantikannya. Begitu terus hingga 11 orang prajurit muslim menemui syahid. Tinggal Thalhah sendiri bersama Rasulullah. Hingga kemudian Rasululah memerintahkan kepada Thalhah, “Sekarang engkau, wahai Thalhah!”

Tanpa menunggu lagi, Thalhah pun maju menghadang musuh dan menghalau mereka agar tak bisa mendekati Rasulullah. Thalhah kembali ke dekat Rasulullah dan menaikkannya sedikit ke bukit. Disandarkannya tubuh Rasulullah yang mulia. Gigi taringnya patah, kening dan bibirnya sobek, darah mengucur dari muka beliau.

Abu Bakar dan Abu Ubaidah bin Jarrah menemui Rasulullah, tapi Rasulullah menyuruh mereka membantu Thalhah. Thalhah ditemukan dalam keadaan pingsan, tak kurang dari 79 luka bekas tebasan pedang, tusukan lembing, dan lemparan panah memenuhi tubuhnya. Pergelangan tangannya putus sebelah. Darah segar mengucur dari tubuhnya. Semua orang mengira Thalhah sudah syahid karena luka para yang dideritanya, tapi ternyata ia masih hidup sehingga akhirnya Thalhah mendapat julukan “asy-syahidul al-hayyu” atau syahid yang masih hidup.

Sejak saat itu, jika ada yang membicarakan perang Uhud di depan Abu Bakar, Abu Bakar selalu menyahut, “Perang hari itu adalah peperangan milik Thalhah seluruhnya.”

Seakan ingin menebus ketidakhadirannya pada perang Badar, Thalhah mempertaruhkan semuanya di perang Uhud. Sebab saat perang Badar terjadi dia dan Sa’id bin Zaid tengah diutus menjadi mata-mata di luar kota oleh Rasulullah. Meski demikian, Thalhah tetap mendapat ghanimah Badar.

Thalhah adalah seorang pemuda yang cerdas. Keislamannya berawal ketika ia tengah berjalan ke Syam dan bertemu dengan pendeta yang mengabarkan kedatangan Nabi terakhir, Muhammad SAW. Ia bercerita kepada Abu bakar yang kemudian mengantarkannya menemui Nabi Muhammad SAW.

Rasulullah menjelaskan apa itu Islam kepada Thalhah, dan dengan ringan Thalhah pun mengucap dua kalimat syahadat. Peristiwa keislaman Thalhah menjadi berita yang amat mengejutkan, terutama untuk keluarganya. Berbagai bujuk rayu dari keluarga dan kaumnya tak lagi dihiraukannya. Pendirian Thalhah tak dapat digoyahkan.

Thalhah dikenal sebagai orang yang jujur dan teguh pendirian. Sejak awal keislamannya, ia juga tak pernah ingkar janji dan dermawan. Pernah dia membawa pulang keuntungan dagang sebesar 700.000 dirham. Entah kenapa malamnya Thalhah gelisah, risau dan merasa tidak tenang. Istrinya sampai kebingungan melihatnya.
“Mengapa engkau gelisah, apa aku telah melakukan kesalahan padamu?”
“Tidak. Engkau tak melakukan kesalahan apapun, tapi memang ada yan mengganggu pikiranku. Pikiran seorang hamba yang tak tenang ingin memejamkan mata sedang ada harta bertumpuk di rumahnya.”
“Mengapa engkau sampai risau seperti itu. bukankah banyak yang membutuhkan pertolonganmu. Besok pagi engkau bagikan saja uang itu kepada orang yang membutuhkan.
“Semoga Allah merahmatimu. Sungguh engkau wanita yang mendapat taufik Allah,“ sahut Thalhah bahagia.

Akhirnya Thalhah membagikan uang tersebut kepada fakir miskin Anshar dan Muhajirin keesokan harinya. Ia tak merasa berhak memegang harta sebanyak itu meski itu adalah hasil keuntungan dagangnya. Pantas jika Rasulullah memberinya gelar Thalhah Al-Jaud (Thalhah yang pemurah) dan Thalhah Al-Fayyadh (atau Thalhah yang dermawan).

Thalhah syahid pada usia 60 tahun dalam peristiwa perang Jamal karena luka yang cukup dalam di kakinya. Atas semua kisah hidupnya yang tidak biasa, Thalhah menjadi salah satu orang yang dijamin masuk surga bersama 9 sahabat lainnya.

“Who wants to see people walking on the earth after experiencing death, look at Talha!”

It was the speech of the Prophet Muhammad when Uhud war happened. When the Muslim forces had disunited and only a few people were remaining including Thalhah bin Ubaidillah.
Then the Prophet and the Muslims went up the hill and they were intercepted by the enemy. “Who dares to oppose them he would be my friend one day in heaven,” said the Prophet.
“I, O Messenger of Allah,” said Talha.
“No, not you! You must remain in place. ”
“I, O Messenger of Allah,” said Ansar soldier.
“Yes, come forward,” said the Prophet.
The Ansar soldiers come forward to against the infidel soldiers who want to kill the Prophet till he meets martyrdom. Prophet went on, but he was intercepted by the idolaters’ soldiers.
“Who dares to oppose them?”Cried the Prophet again.
“I, O Messenger of Allah,” said Talha precedes the other.
” not, don’t! You remain in your place!”

“Then an Ansar soldier replaces him. So it went up to 11 Muslim soldiers who dead in martyred. Only Talha was remaining with the Prophet. Until then Rasululah ordered Talha, “Now it’s your turn, O Talha!” Without waiting longer, Talhah tried to block the enemy so as they were not approaching the Prophet. Talha returned to the Prophet and lift the prophet a little close to the hill. Then talhah leaned Prophet Body with broken canine tooth, cutted forehead and lip, blood streaming from his face.
Abu Bakr and Abu Ubaidah bin Jarrah went to meet the Prophet, but the Prophet ordered them to help Talha. Talha was found unconscious, not less than 79 sword wounds, puncture javelin, and arrows found on his body. One of his wrists was broke. Fresh blood was streaming from his body. Everyone thought Talha has been martyred because of the injuries he suffered, but it turns out he was still alive so that eventually Talha got the nickname “ash-syahidul al-hayyu” or martyr who is still alive.
Since that time, if someone talks about the Uhud war in front of Abu Bakr, Abu Bakr always says, “That War is belong to Talha entirely.”

As if to make up for his absence at the battle of Badr, Talha risked everything in the Uhud was. Because when the Badr war happened she and Sa’id bin Zaid were assigned to spy outside of the city by the Prophet. However, Talha still received Badr ghanimah.
Talha is an intelligent young man. His Islam began when he was walking to the Sham and met with the pastor who preached the coming of the last Prophet, Muhammad. Then He told Abu Bakr that is then delivered to the Prophet Muhammad.

Prophet explained what Islam to Talha, and lightly Talha also give two syhadat sentences. Talha convert to Islam became shocking news, especially for a family. Various persuasions from family and clan was ignored by him. Talha stance can not be shaken.

Talha is known as an honest man and have a firm stance. Since the beginning he convert to Islam, he also never broken a promise and become generous. Once he got a trading profit amounted to 700,000 dirhams. Somehow at night Talha felt anxious, worried and uneasy. His wife was confuse see him like that.
“Why are you nervous, did I have done wrong to you?”
“No. You did not do anything wrong, but there is something bothering me. The mind of a servant who does not want to close his eyes because there are treasures piled up in his house. ”
“Why are you worried like this?. There area lot of people who need your help, aren’t they? Tomorrow morning you can just distribute the money to the needy.
“May God bless you, truly you are a woman who gets God taufik, “said Talha happily.
Finally Talha distribute the money to the poor and Muhajirin next day. He did not feel right to posesed the treasure although it is the result of his trading profits. No wonder if the Prophet gave him the title Talha Al-Jaud (Talha the beneficent,) and Talha Al-Fayyadh (or Talha the generous).
Talha died in martyred at the age of 60 years in Jamal war because of the deep wounds in his legs. Because of an unusual life story, Talha became one of the people who are guaranteed to go to heaven together with 9 other companions.
