Dhū Mikhbar

Dhū Mikhbar, or Dhū Mikhmar, may Allāh be pleased with him, was the nephew of the Najāshī of Abyssinia. He came to the Prophet ﷺ along with seventy-two other Abyssinians. He attached himself to the Prophet ﷺ and did his khidmah. Abū Dāwūd has related 5 āḥādīth from him, and Imām Aḥmad has related 4 āḥādīth from him.
