al-Sawād al-A’dham: Ṣāliḥ


Ṣāliḥ ibn ‘Addī, known as Shuqrān, may Allāh be pleased with him, was one of those fortunate individuals who participated in Badr and was in charge of the captives taken at that battle.

The angel, Jibrā’īl, peace be upon him, once came to the Prophet ﷺ and asked, “What do you all think about the participants of Badr amongst you?” He ﷺ replied, “From the best of the Muslims,” or some similar statement. Jibrā’īl remarked, “Likewise are those angels who participated in Badr.”

Shuqrān attended the washing of the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ and is the one who threw a cloth into the grave of the Prophet ﷺ. His lineage came to an end during the time of al-Rashīd.
