Here is the story of Rabiah told in his own words: And when my eyes beheld the Messenger of God, for the first time, I loved him with a love that possessed my entire being. I loved him to the exclusion of everyone else. Why don’t you put yourself completely in the service of the Messenger of Bih, peace be on him. Go and suggest this to him. If he is pleased with you, you would find happiness in being near him. You will be successful through love for him and you will have the good fortune of obtaining the good in this world and the good in the next.
This I did hoping that he would accept me in his service. He did not dash my hopes. Ubadullah was pleased that I should be his servant. From that day, I lived in the shadow of the noble Prophet.
Talha bin Ubaidullah
I went with him wherever he went. I moved in his orbit whenever and wherever he turned. Whenever he cast a glance in my direction, I would leap to stand in his presence. Whenever he expressed a need, he would find me hurrying to fulfil it.
I would serve him throughout the day. When the day was over and he had prayed Salat al-Isha and retired to his home, I would think about txlha. But I would soon say to myself:. Perhaps you may be required to do something for the Prophet during the ubaidullahh.
Talha bin Ubaydullah (r.a.)
The Prophet would spend part of his night engaged in Salat. I would hear him reciting the opening chapter of the Quran hazrxt he would continue reciting sometimes for a third or a half of the night.
I would become tired and leave or my eyes would get the better of me and I would fail asleep. It was the habit of the Prophet, peace be on him, that if someone did him a good turn, he loved to repay that person with something more excellent. He wanted to do something for me too in return for my service to him. So one day he came up tome and said: I thought a little and then said: At that time, I was a young man and poor.
I had neither family, nor wealth, nor place of abode. I used to shelter in the Yazrat of the mosque with other poor Muslims like myself.
People used to call us the “guests of Islam”. Whenever any Muslim brought something in charity to the Prophet, he would send it all to us. And if someone gave him a gift he would take some of it and leave the rest for us. So, it occurred ubiadullah me to ask the Prophet for some worldly good that would save me from poverty and make me like others who had wealth, wife and children. Soon, however, I said: The world is temporary and will pass away.
You have your share of sustenance in it which God has guaranteed and which must come to you. The Prophet, peace be on him, has a place with his Lord and no request would be refused him. Request him therefore, to ask Allah to grant you something of the bounty of the hereafter.

The Prophet remained silent for a long while and then asked: So I began to exert myself in worship in order to attain the good fortune of being with the Prophet in Paradise just as I had the good fortune of being in his service and being his companion in this world.
Not long afterwards, the Prophet called me bln asked: The Prophet remained silent.
When he saw me again he asked: Left to myself again, I regretted what I had said and chided myself: By God, the Prophet knows better than you what is good for you in this world and the next and he also knows better than you what you possess.
By God, if the Prophet, peace be on him, should ask me again to marry, I would reply positively. Timidly, I went to the family and said: By God, the messenger of God’s Messenger shall only return with his mission fulfilled.
I went back to the Prophet and reported:. I have come from the best of homes. They believed me, they welcomed me, and they made a marriage contract between me and their daughter. But from where do I get the mahr for her? The Prophet then sent for Buraydah ibn al-Khasib, one of the leading persons in my tribe, the Banu Asiam, and said to him: This they did and the Prophet said to me: They were pleased and said, Ubaldullah is much and good.
