Zayd ibn Thaabit (a Companion) narrated:

“The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, sent me on the day of the Battle of Uhud to look for Sa’d ibn Ar-Rabee’ and he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said to me: ‘If you see him, then convey to him my greetings, and tell him: ‘The Messenger of Allah asked you how you are doing’.’’ So I began to look through the dead, and I found him in his last moments. He had over seventy wounds on his body from being struck by spears, swords, and arrows. I said to him, ‘O Sa’d, the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, conveys to you his greeting, and asks, ‘How are you doing?’ He said: ‘Peace be upon the Messenger of Allah and upon you. Tell him I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, I discern the fragrance of Paradise. And tell my people, the Ansaar: You have no excuse if the Messenger of Allah is harmed while you still can blink an eyelash.’ Then he passed away.”

Sulaymaan Al-Baaji (a scholar) said: “This is an example of the Prophet’s concern for his Companions, for he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, used to search for one who was absent from them to know his condition.”

Muhammad ibn Yoosuf Ash-Shaami (a scholar) said: “When Sa’d said:“I find the fragrance of Paradise”, it is possible that he meant that in a literal sense, meaning he smelled a fragrance that he never smelled before, so he knewthat it was Paradise. Or he could have said this out of his certainty (that he wouldsoon enter Paradise), so it was as if he could truly smell it.”
