Ukkasha Ibn Mihsan
Muhammad (saw) called him "the best cavalryman". He was afraid of the punishment of Hakk.
He was an attentive, intelligent and brave young man. When he was about twenty years old, he secretly researched Islam. He was honored with Islam with his brother Abu Sinan.
He explained Islam to his relatives and made efforts for them to become Muslims as well. His sister Umm Kays became a Muslim on the occasion of him. The Makkan polytheists tried to convert him from Islam through pressure and torture. But they did not succeed in this.
He was martyred at the age of 44.
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...
