Narrated Abdul Rahman ibn Auf, 'i was aligned in the ranks on the day of badr, when i looked towards my right and left I saw two young boys of the Ansar, and i thought i was stronger than them. One of them surprised me saying,'O Uncle ! Do you know Abu jahl ?' I said,' yes, what do you want from him, my nephew ? He said,' i have been told that he insults the Messenger of God, by He in whose Hands my life is, if i should see him, i will not leave his body until one of us meets his fate.'. I was astounded at his speech, then the other boy surprised me by saying the same as the other had said. After some time i saw Abu jahl walking among the people. I said to the boys,'look ! There is the man you enquired about.'. So both of them set upon him with their swords and struck him untill he died (One of the boy's hand was slain, the hand was dangling so he used his feet to step on the dangling hand and he forcefully removed the hand so that it won't cause him problem in killing Abu jahl). So both of them set upon him with with swords and struck him until he died and then returned to the Prophet (P.B.U.H) to tell him about it. The Prophet said,'which one of you killed him?' they both said 'i killed him'. The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said,'have you cleansed your swords ?' they said,'NO'. He looked at their swords and said, 'indeed you have both killed him and the spoils of the deceased will be given to mu'adh ibn Amr ibn jamuh. The two boys were mu'adh ibn afra and Mu'adh ibn amr ibn jamuh''
