Life & History of Ja'far al-Tayyar

The Beginning

Abu Talib, Shaikh al-Bat-ha, missed his nephew our Master Mohammad (peace be upon him and his household). So, he went to look for him. He was not alone. His son Ja'far aged twenty was with him. Shaikh al-Bat-ha and his son went to the hills near Makkah. They found him there. Our Master Mohammad (peace be upon him and his household) was praying humbly. Ali, the young man of Islam, was praying on his right. They were not afraid of anyone but Allah. They were praying for Allah, the Creator of the skies and the earth, the Creator of creatures. While they were praying, their number was a pitiful sight. Abu Talib turned to his son and said: Join your cousin's wing.

Namely, stand on his left hand, for Ali has stood on his right hand. The bird can't fly but with two wings. This means that Abu Talib, the Prophet's uncle, did not want our Master Mohammad (peace be upon him and his household) to stay with one wing. Since then, Ja'far's name has appeared in the bright history of Islam. Ja'far bin Abu Talib was born about 25 years after the Year of the Elephant. He was 10 years older than his brother Ali. He was about 20 years younger than our Master Mohammad (peace be upon him and his household). Ja'far bin Abu Talib looked like our Master Mohammad (peace be upon him and his household). He lived with his cousin al-Abbas. Abu Talib had a big family. Our Master Mohammad (peace be upon him and his household) wanted to relieve his worries. So, he took Ali to his house. Al-Abbas took Ja'far to his house. The light of Islam illuminated the sky of Makkah. Our Master Mohammad (peace be upon him and his household) invited the bewildered to the New Light. He invited the defeated and the oppressed to the religion of salvation and freedom. He invited the drowning in the darkness of ignorance to the light of Islam. But the Quraishi tyrants did not listen to the voice of Islam and the Call of the Sky. So, they began fighting our Master Mohammad (peace be upon him and his household) and those who believed in him. They wreaked their wrath upon the weak Muslims. They whipped Bilal al-Habashy, Summayya, Yasir, and other Muslims. They whipped them for no sin but because they said: Our Lord is Allah.
