Miqdad ibn Aswad
He is better known as al-Miqdad ibn al-Aswad al-Kindi or simply Miqdad, was one of the companions of the Islamic prophet Muhammad.
Miqdad lost his hand in the Battle of Badr. Miqdad, who is famous for his courage, came to the Messenger of Allah in the Battle of Badr and said: We will not say as the Israelites said to Moses, "You and your Lord go and fight together, we will sit here" (al-Maida 5/24). We will fight on your side.
He participated in the conquest of Egypt during the caliphate of Umar and visited Jabiye in Syria with him. He took part in the army that Muawiya sent to Cyprus during his governorship.
He died in 653 at the age of seventy and was brought to Madinah and buried in Baqi ‘Cemetery.
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...
