Khabbab ibn Al Aratt
One of the first Muslim Companions.
Hazrat-i Khabbâb was a blacksmith and made a sword. Our master the Prophet used to go to his shop and meet with him. As a result of these meetings, Hazrat Khabbâb became a Muslim and took the path of eternal peace. Also, he was one of the slaves who was tortured for accepting Islam, was sometimes tortured on hot (fiery) stones.
Homeless and unmarried muhajirun (companions of Muhammad who migrated from Mecca) who did not have relatives in Medina, dwelt in al-Suffah where they were mainly learning the Quran and Sunnah.
Al-Ṣuffah was a shelter that was available at the rear side of Al-Masjid an-Nabawi during the Medina period of early Islam. It was initially available at the northeastern corner of the mosque and Muhammad (s.a.w) ordered it to be covered by palm leaves in order to provide shade, hence it was called Al-Suffah.
Bilal ibn Rabah was one of the most trusted and loyal Sahabah (companions) of the Islamic prophet Muhammad (saw). He was born in Mecca and is considered to have been the first mu'azzin, chosen by Muhammad (saw) himself.
Salman al-Farsi was the first Persian who converted to Islam. He is credited with the suggestion of digging a trench around Medina, a Sasanian military technique, when it was attacked by Mecca...
