The Most Awkward Hour in the Messenger's Life

After the fall of Ibn Sakan, the Messenger of Allâh [pbuh] remained alone with only those two Quraishites. In a version by Abu ‘Uthman — authorized in As-Sahihain— he said: "At that time, there were none with the Prophet [pbuh] except Talha bin ‘Ubaidullâh and Sa‘d bin Abi Waqqas. [Sahih Al-Bukhari 1/527, 2/581]
