Abu Dharr al-Ghifari

Abu Dharr al-Ghifari In the Waddan valley which connects Makkah with the outside world, lived the tribe of Ghifar. The Ghifar existed on the meagre offerings of the trade caravans of the Quraysh which plied between Syria and Makkah. It is likely that they also lived by raiding these caravans when they were not given enough to satisfy their needs. Jundub ibn Junadah, nicknamed Abu Dharr, was a member of this tribe.He was known for his courage, his… Read more

Abu Hurayrah

Abu Hurayrah "An Abi Hurayrata, radiyallahu anhu, qal.' qala rasul Allahi, sallallahu alayhi wa sailam..."Through this phrase millions of Muslims from the early history of Islam to the present have come to be familiar with the name Abu Hurayrah.

Abu Sufyan ibn al-Harith

Abu Sufyan ibn al-Harith Rarely can one find a closer bond between two persons such as existed between Muhammad the son of Abdullah and Abu Sufyan the son of al-Harith. (This Abu Sufyan of course was not the same as Abu Sufyan ibn Harb, the powerful Quraysh chieftain.)Abu Sufyan ibn al-Harith was born about the same time as the blessed Prophet. They resembled each other a great deal. They grew up together and for a time lived in the same household.… Read more

His full… Read more

Adiyy ibn Hatim

Adiyy ibn Hatim In the ninth year of the Hijrah, an Arab king made the first positive moves to Islam after years of feeling hatred for it.

Adiyy inherited the domain of… Read more

Aishah bint Abi Bakr

Aishah bint Abi Bakr The life of Aishah is proof that a woman can be far more learned than men and that she can be the teacher of scholars and experts.

Al-Baraa ibn Malik al-Ansari

Al-Baraa ibn Malik al-Ansari His hair looked dishevelled and his whole appearance was unkempt. He was thin and wiry with so little flesh on his bones that it was painful to look at him.

He was so courageous and daring that Umar once wrote to his governors throughout the Islamic state that they should not… Read more
