Anas ibn Maalik narrated that

Umm Ar-Rabi` the daughter of AlBaraa’, the mother of Haarithah ibn Suraaqah (a Companion), went to the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and said: “O Allah’s Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, will you not tell me about Haarithah? If he is in Paradise, I shall be patient, and if he is in something else, then I can cry about his situation.” Her son had been killed during the Battle of Badr by an arrow, and no one knows who shot that arrow The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said to her: “Have you lost your mind? Is there one [level in] Paradise? There are many lev els of Paradise, and he has reached the level of Al-Firdaws [the highest level].”

Ibn Hajar said: “This happened before the prohibition of wailing. The prohibition of wailing occurred after the Battle of Uhud, and this was after the Battle of Badr.”

Jaabir ibn `Abdullaah said

“The Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, met me and said: ‘O Jaabir, why do I see you so sad and troubled?’ I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, my father was martyred during the Battle of Uhud, and he left a family and debt behind.’ He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘Shall I not tell you about what your father has met?’ I said: ‘Yes, definitely, O Messenger of Allah.’ He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘Allah never spoke to anyone without a veil between Him and the one He is Speaking to. However, He resurrected your father and spoke to him without a veil, and without it being through a messenger, and He said to your father, ‘My slave, request something of me, and I shall grant it.’ Your father said: ‘O Lord, give me respite and life again, so that I can be killed in your sake again.’ The Lord said: ‘I have previously said that they [mankind] will not go back to life.’” Jaabir said: “Then the following verse was revealed (which means): «And never think of those who have been killed in the cause of Allah as dead. Rather, they are alive with their Lord, receiving provision.»
