These shahaba (ra) were habesha (from ethiopia/eritrea):


  • Bilal ibn Ribah - while still a slave, he converted to Islam and defiantly resisted torture and persecution (for his conversion) from his pagan slave-master. He later became the first mu'adhdhin (caller to prayer) in Islamic history.
  • Wahshy ibn Harb- he killed Hamza, Muhammad's beloved uncle and a leading Muslim general and formidable soldier, but redeemed himself when he converted to Islam. He later killed Musaylimah, the most formidable opponent of the Muslims during the Wars of Apostasy.
  • Usama ibn Zayd - loved by Muhammad almost as equal to a grandson. He was the youngest person ever to be appointed a general by Muhammad.
  • Umm Ayman (Barakah) - she was around Muhammad from his birth until his death and was the closest example of a mother to him (after his own mother’s death when he was a child). She was the mother of Usama ibn Zayd.
  • Al-Nahdiah - she converted to Islam while she was a slave, but refused to abandon her new faith even after being tortured and persecuted by her slave-master. She was later freed from slavery.
  • Lubaynah - she converted to Islam while she was a slave, but refused to abandon her new faith even after being persecuted by her then pagan slave-master. She was later freed from slavery.
  • Umm Ubays - she converted to Islam while she was a slave, but refused to abandon her new faith even after being tortured and persecuted by her pagan slave-master. She was later freed from slavery. She was the daughter of Al-Nahdiah.
  • Harithah bint al-Muammil - she converted to Islam while she was a slave, but refused to abandon her new faith even after being persecuted to such a severe extent that she lost her eyesight. She was later freed from slavery. Umm Ubays was her sister.
