Martyrdom of Abu Talha رضي الله عنه
`Ali bin Zayd narrated that Anas said that Abu Talhah commented (on this Ayah), “Whether you are old or young, Allah did not leave an excuse for anyone.” Abu Talhah marched to Ash-Sham and fought until he was killed. In another narration, Abu Talhah recited Surah Bara’ah until he reached this Ayah,
﴿انْفِرُواْ خِفَافًا وَثِقَالاً وَجَـهِدُواْ بِأَمْوَلِكُمْ وَأَنفُسِكُمْ فِى سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ﴾
(March forth, whether you are light or heavy, and strive hard with your wealth and your lives in the cause of Allah.) He then said, “I see that Allah had called us to mobilize whether we are old or young. O my children! Prepare my supplies.” His children said, `May Allah grant you His mercy! You conducted Jihad along with the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم until he died, then with Abu Bakr رضي الله عنهuntil he died, then with `Umar رضي الله عنه until he died. Let us perform Jihad in your place.” Abu Talhah refused and he went to the sea ﴿under the command of Mu`awiyah﴾ where he died. They could not find an island to bury him on until nine days later, during which his body did not deteriorate or change and they buried him on the island.
