Abū Nuʿmān, Bashīr b. Saʿd (Arabic: ابونُعمان بشیر بن سَعد) (d. 12/633-4) was a companion of the Prophet (s) and from Ansar. He lived in Medina and was from Banu Malik, a clan of Khazraj. He was among a group of residents of Yathrib, who pledged allegiance to the Prophet (s) in 'Aqaba treaty. He participated in the battles of Badar, Uhud and other battles.
Lineage and Children
Participation in Battles
In Sha'ban and Shawwal of 7/December 628 and February 629, he was sent to two military missions by the Prophet (s). In the first mission, the Prophet (s) sent Bashir along with 30 Muslims to Banu Murra in Fadak. Although his associates finally achieved the intended result to some extent; he was badly injured during the battle that his associates had to come back to Medina without him. He stayed in Fadak for a while for treatment and then returned to Medina.
Allegiance to Abu Bakr
It is probable that his envy of Sa'd b. 'Ubada –the elite from Khazraj, who was trying hard to take over the leadership of Khazraj- influenced him to hurry in swearing allegiance to Abu Bakr. However, this subject (who was the first one to pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr?) later led to dispute and contention between Aws and Khazraj.
During the caliphate of Abu Bakr, there were invasions and seizures under the commandership of Khalid b. Walid in some regions of what is now Iraq. Bashir b. Sa'd was in Khalid b. Walid's army. In 12 AH/633-4, Bashir was injured in Baniqiya, a region of 'Ayn al-Tamr, –located west of Kufa and near al-Anbar- and succumbed to the injury. He was buried in the same region.
