When the Prophet (SAW) emigrated to Madinah, Ammaar (RA) offered to build a structure for him where he could sit, take rest in the afternoon, and say his Salah under its roof. He first collected the stones and then built the masjid in Quba. He fought against the enemies of Islam with great zeal and courage. Once he was fighting in a battle when he said rejoicingly:
“I am to meet my friends very soon, I am to meet Muhammad (SAW) and his companions.”
He then asked for water. He was offered some milk. He took it and said:
“I heard the Prophet (SAW) saying to me, *’Milk shall be the last drink of your worldly life.”
He then fought till he met his coveted end. He was then aged about ninety-four.
