Traits of Hazrat Amir Muawiyah

Traits of Hazrat Amir Muawiyah as a companion and caliph:

 

 

Muawiyah ibn Abu Sufyan was the founder and first caliph of the Umayyad Caliphate, serving from 661 until his death. He became caliph less than 30 years following the death of the Holy prophet Muhammad صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ‎ and very shortly after the reign of the four “rightly guided” (Rashidun) caliphs. Although considered to be lacking in the justice and piety of the Rashidun, Muawiyah was also the first caliph whose name appeared on coins, inscriptions, or documents of the nascent Islamic empire.

Prophet Muhammad صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ‎ titled Hazrat Amir Muawiyah as revelation compiler (Katib e Wahi).

According to Prophet صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ‎, a troop will appear for a great cause (Jihad), who will fight battle through sea, all of the fighters would be forgiven (entitled to Jannah).
Interesting, in that battle, Prophet صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ‎ himself participated.

Hazrat Umm e Habiba, one of the wives of Holy Prophet صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ‎ was the sister of Hazrat Amir Muawiyah.

Once Holy Prophet صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ‎ entered home, saw his wife Umm e Habiba holding his brother Amir Muawiyah in her lap. Holy Prophet صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ‎ inquired, “Habiba do you love your brother?” she replied, “of course Holy Prophet صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ‎, who won’t be loving her brother.” Prophet صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ‎ said, “Allah and I also love your brother.”

Our Prophet صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ‎ raised his hands and prayed before Allah for Muawiyah to protect him from His torment, bless him with wisdom and triumph.

Hazrat Abdullah Bin Abbas narrated that Hazrat Muawiyah is a fiqh (jurisprudence).
Moreover he said that after four great caliphs, he never witnessed anyone more sagacious and quality ruler except Muawiyah. He has immense wisdom to rule an Islamic state.

Someone misrepresented and humiliated Hazrat Muawiyah in front of Hazrat Umar Bin Abdul Aziz, he punished him with strips.
