a. Hazrat Abu Talha (R.A)
b. Hazrat Abu Dahana (R.A)
c. Hazrat Hanzala (R.A)
d. Hazrat Saad (R.A)


ANSWER: See Answer
 
Hazrat Hanzala (R.A) (Hanzala Ibn Abi Amir) belonged to the Banu Aus tribe of the Ansar. His father, Abu Aamir was a Christian.[2] Hanzala’s age was just 24 years when he died in the Battle of Uhud while fighting against the polytheists.[3] Hanzala being a foot soldier, assaulted the mount of Abu Sufyan ibn Harb to attack him. However, the latter was saved by Shaddād bin al-Aswad (also known as Ibn Sha’ub) who also killed Hanzala.

Hazrat Hanzala (R.A) had earlier left for the battlefield to respond the call of Jihad leaving his wife Jamila, daughter of Abd-Allah ibn Ubayy, on the first wedding night. He did not have the time for doing Ghusl (ablution). Muhammad (S.A.W) is narrated to have seen angels giving Hanzala a bath in between heavens and the earth with fresh rainwater kept in silver vessels. Because of this honor, Hanzala earned the title of Ghaseel al-Malāʾika (Arabic: غسيل الملائكة) or the one cleansed by the angels. His son, Abdullāh ibn Hanzala would later command the people of Medina to dissent against the Umayyad Caliph Yazid I
