Breaking covenant

Bismillah ar-rahman ar-rahim

'Aishah رضي الله عنها  narrated : Sa'd  رضي الله عنه  was wounded on the day of Khandaq (i.e., Trench) when a man from Quraish, called Ibn Al-'Ariqah, hit him (with an arrow). He shot an arrow at Sa'd medial arm vein.
The Messenger of Allah  صلى الله عليه وسلم  pitched a tent for Sa'd in the mosque to keep him nearby. When the Prophet  صلى الله عليه وسلم  returned from the (battle) of Khandaq (i.e., Trench) and laid down his arms and took a bath, Jibril (Gabriel) عليه السلام  came to him while he was shaking the dust off his head, and said, "You have laid down the arms? By Allah, I have no laid them down. Go towards them (to attack them)."
The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم  said, "Where?"
Jibril pointed towards Banu Quraizah.
So the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم  went to Banu Quraizah (and besieged them).
They then surrendered to the Prophet's judgement but he directed them to Sa'd to give his verdict on them.
Sa'd said, "I give my judgement that their warriors be killed, their woman and children be taken as captives, and their properties be distributed."

In another narration, the Messenger of Allah  صلى الله عليه وسلم  said to Sa'd : "You have passed on them to judgement of Allah, the Glorified," or he said : " You have judged by the Judgement of the King." (Bukhari : 4122 and Muslim : 1768)

Uhud Battle

Bismillah ar-rahman ar-rahim

Anas bin Malik رضي الله عنه  narrated that when the enemy got the upper hand on the day of the Battle of Uhud, the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم  was left with only seven men from the Ansar (supporters) and two men from Quraish emigrants of the Prophet's tribe.
When the enemy advanced towards him and overwhelmed him, he said : "Who would turn them away from us and will go to Jannah (or : will be my Companions in Jannah?)?"
A man from the Ansar came forward and fought (the enemy) until he was killed.
The enemy advanced and overwhelmed him again, and he repeated the words : "Who will turn them away from us and will go to Jannah (or : will be my companion in Jannah)?"
Another man from the Ansar came forward and fought until he was killed.
This state of affair continued until the seven Ansar were killed (one after the other).
Then the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم  said to his two Companions : "We have not done justice to our Companions." (Muslim : 1789)
