In Islamic sciences, all knowledge of the religion comes back to two sources: the Quran and the sayings and doings of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ– the hadith. The Quran is of course considered the un-changed word of Allah as revealed to Prophet Muhammad ﷺand is thus the foundation of all Islamic knowledge. Second after the Quran is the example set forth by the Prophet ﷺ.

The early followers have the distinction of believing the truth from our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon), before embracing Islam became popular in the Arabian Peninsula. Additionally, many of them suffered severe tortures from the blasphemers, simply because they believed our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon), loved God, and worshipped their Creator correctly.

Hudhayfah Ibn al-Yaman was one of the early converts to Islam and shared a very close relationship with the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be to him). His father al-Yaman was from Makkah, but had to flee to Medina as he had killed someone in Makkah. Though the ban for him to enter Makkah was lifted after some time, he chose to make Medina his place of residence and hence Hudhayfah, despite being a Makkan, had his upbringing in Medina.

Today we are including in this series a scholar of the second generation of Islam. His father, Az-Zubair ibn Al-Awwam (may Allah be pleased with him) was one of the ten companions of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allh be upon him) to whom he gave the happiest news of all, that of the certainty of being admitted into Heaven on the Day of Judgment. Az-Zubair, who was one of the very early believers in Islam, was described by the Prophet as his “very close supporter”.

Most people find it easier to blend in with the crowd rather than stand out and open themselves to criticism and ridicule. This has been the case from olden times until now. But many people have succeeded in overcoming the obstacles in their lives and have developed into noble, great, and legendary characters. Such is the case with Mus`ab ibn `Umayr (may Allah be pleased with him).

 

Prophet Salih (pbuh) and his camel

After the destruction of the Ad, the tribe of Thamud succeeded them in power and glory. They also fell to idol-worshipping. As their material wealth increased so, too, did their evil ways while their virtue decreased. Like the people of Ad, they erected huge buildings on the plains and hewed beautiful homes out of the hills. Tyranny and oppression became prevalent as evil men ruled the land.

Better known as `Imam-e-`Adham' (The Greatest Imam), or by his kunyah `Abu Hanifah', Nu'man ibn Thabit was born in the city of Kufa (modern day Iraq) in the year 80 A.H (689 A.D). Born into a family of tradesmen, the Imam's family were of Persian origin as well as descending from the noble Prophet's (saw) Companion Salman al-Farsi (ra). Imam Abu Hanifah's father, Thabit, had met in Kufa Imam `Ali Ibn Abi Talib (ra) who made dua for him and his progeny, and some say that Abu Hanifah was a result of this dua.
