Hadhrat Anas Radiallahu Anhu narrates that the canine teeth of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam were broken during the Battle of Uhud and he was severely injured on the head.

Wiping the blood from his face, he said, “How can a nation be successful when they have injured his head and broken his teeth when he calls them to Allaah?!” It was on this occasion that Allaah revealed the verse:

You have no choice in the matter (of punishing the Mushrikeen. Only Allaah decides if and when people ought to be punished). (If Allaah wills,) He shall grant them the ability to repent (and become Muslims) or He may punish them (if He chooses not to guide them to Istaam), for they are indeed oppressors (oppressing themselves by not becoming Muslims). {Surah Aal Imraan, verse 128)

Hadhrat Abu Sa’eed Khudri Radiallahu Anhu narrates that when Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam  sustained an injury to his face during the Battle of Uhud, Hadhrat Maalik bin Sinaan Radiallahu Anhu turned to him, wiped the wound and then swallowed the blood. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam then said, “Whoever wishes to see someone whose blood is mixed with mine, should look at Maalik bin Sinaan.”

Hadhrat Aa’isha Radiallahu Anha narrates that whenever Hadhrat Abu Bakr Radiallahu Anhu spoke about the Battle of Uhud, he would say, “Every credit for that day goes to Talha Radiallahu Anhu.”

He then continued to explain, “I was the first person to return to the fight (after the Muslims were taken by surprise) and I saw someone very fiercely defending Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. I said (to myself) ‘(I hope that it would) Be Talha Radiallahu Anhu!’ Since I had missed what I had missed (rewards of defending Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam), I wanted him to be a man from amongst my people (so that we may have the honour, and Talha Radiallahu Anhu was from amongst my people). Between the Mushrikeen and myself was another person whom I did not recognise. While I was getting closer to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam he was running much faster than I could. He turned out to be Abu Ubaydah bin Jarraah Radiallahu Anhu.”

”When we reached Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, his canine tooth was already broken and his face was injured when two links of his helmet pierced his cheeks. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said, ‘See to your companion!’ Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam was referring to Talha Radiallahu Anhu who had become weak due to loss of blood. However, (seeing the condition of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam we failed to comply with the instruction and I-went to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam to remove the links from his face. Abu Ubaydah Radiallahu Anhu pleaded to me, ‘By the right that I have (as your Muslim brother), do leave it to me.’ So I left it for him. Because of the pain that it would have caused Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, Abu Ubaydah Radiallahu Anhu disliked pulling the links out with his hand so he bit hard onto it and pulled out one of the links. However, one of his front teeth fell out in the process.

When I motioned to do as he had done, he again pleaded, ‘By the right that I have, do leave it to me.’ He then repeated what he had done the first time and another front tooth fell out with the link. Abu Ubaydah Radiallahu Anhu was one of the best looking people without front teeth.”

“After tending to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam we went to Talha Radiallahu Anhu who had fallen into a ditch. He had suffered seventy odd wounds inflicted by spears, arrows and swords. We then nursed him.”
