Fatwa No: 351814

Question

One of the ten Companions who were promised Paradise is accredited with bringing 6 of those 10 Companions to the greatness of Islam. Please, name him as well as the other 6.

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

Five people among the ten who were given glad tidings of entering Paradise embraced Islam at the hands of Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq, may Allah be pleased with him.

It was also said that they were six people, and they are the following:

‘Uthmaan ibn ‘Affaan, Talhah ibn ‘Ubaydillah, Az-Zubayr ibn Al-'Awwaam, ‘Abdur-Rahmaan ibn ‘Awf, Sa‘d ibn Abi Waqqaas, and Abu ‘Ubaydah ibn Al-Jarraah.

As-Seerah Al-Halabiyyah reads:

"In brief, five people among the ten who were promised Paradise embraced Islam at the hands of Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq; they are:

‘Uthmaan, Talhah ibn ‘Ubaydillah, Az-Zubayr, Sa‘d ibn Abi Waqqaas, ‘Abdur-Rahmaan ibn ‘Awf; and some added a sixth one, who is Abu ‘Ubaydah ibn Al-Jarraah.

Perhaps this is a quiz question; if this is the case, then please be informed that we do not normally answer these kinds of questions.

Allah knows best.
