This article is about the ‘noble’ qualities of the companions of Prophet Muhammad, known as Sahaba in Islam. Hundreds of pages will not be sufficient to discuss the outstanding ‘nobility’ and ‘morality’ of the Sahaba thoroughly. This article only touches on a fraction of their 'noble’ virtues.
The Arabic word ‘Sahaba’ or ‘Sahaaba’ denotes the ‘Companions of Prophet Muhammad’, namely those non-Muslims who had seen the prophet and accepted Islam under him and remained Muslim until their death. During the first thirteen years of Muhammad's prophetic activity in Mecca before migrating to Medina, he barely had managed to acquire about one hundred local Arabs as his followers. They comprised his close kith and kin and also a number of slaves, whom Muhammad and Abu Bakr had purchased from their Pagan masters.
