11.               Shujaa' ibn Wahb Al-Asadi may Allah be pleased with him:

He was the head of a platoon called Thaat 'Irq to Bani Hawaazin in Rabee' Al-Awwal, 8 A.H. His nickname is Abu Wahb. He was an ally to the tribe of Bani Shams. He was from the first people who embraced Islam, and he emigrated on the second Hijrah to Habashah, and returned to Makkah when they thought that the people of Makkah had accepted Islam. Then he emigrated to Madeenah. He witnessed Badr along with his brother 'Uqbah. He also witnessed all the battles with the Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ). The Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ), paired him and Ibn Hawli as brothers and sent him to Al-Haarith ibn Abi Shammar Al-Ghassaani and to Jabalah ibn Al-Ayman Al-Ghassaani. He also witnessed the Battle of Yamaamah; at that time he was in his forties. 

12.               Abaan ibn Sa'eed, may Allah be pleased with him:

His full name is Abaan ibn Sa'eed ibn Al-'Aas ibn Umayyah Al-Qurashi Al-Umawi, and his nickname is Abu Al-Waleed. The most correct opinion is that he embraced Islam after the treaty of Hudaybiyah. He was a rich merchant, and he used to travel frequently to Shaam. He is the one who protected his cousin 'Uthmaan ibn 'Affaan, may Allah be pleased with him, when he was sent to the people of Makkah as a messenger by the Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ), before the treaty of Al-Hudaybiyah.

Abaan, may Allah be pleased with him, emigrated to Madeenah. This happened after his two brothers, Khaalid and 'Umar, returned to Madeenah from their emigration to Ethiopia, and they sent to him inviting him to the way of Allah The Almighty. He immediately accepted and emigrated to Madeenah. The Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ), appointed him to lead a platoon towards Najd, to subdue the Arab Bedouins who want to attack Madeenah. The Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ), also appointed him as a leader over Bahrain in 9 A.H.

Afterwards, he and his brother Khaalid, may Allah be pleased with them, were martyred during the Battle of Ajnaadeen, 13 A.H.

13.               Abdullaah ibn Huthaafah As-Sahmi, may Allah be pleased with him: 

He was nicknamed Abu Huthayfah. He embraced Islam early, accompanied the Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ), and emigrated the second Hijrah to Ethiopia with his brother Qays ibn Huthaafah. It is said that he witnessed Badr. The Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ), sent him with his letter to Kisra to invite him to Islam, but Kisra tore the letter of the Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ), so Allah The Almighty tore his reign. The Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ), appointed him as an emir of a platoon. In this platoon, Abu Huthayfah ordered them to make a fire and enter it, and they were about to do so, but they refused. When the Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) came to know about this he said: "Obedience is only in what is good." [Al-Bukhari and Muslim] Furthermore, 'Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, sent an army to fight the Romans and Ibn Huthaafah was in that army. He was captured by the Romans, then released. He died in Egypt at the time of 'Umar, may Allah be pleased with him.

14.Karz ibn Jabir Al-Fihri, may Allah be pleased with him:

He embraced Islam after the Hijrah. The historian Ibn Ishaaq said that Karz ibn Jabir, at the head of a small group of polytheists, raided the pastures of Madeenah and looted some animals. The Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ), left Madeenah to fight the aggressors. He went in their pursuit until he reached a valley called Safwaan near Badr but could not catch up with them. This invasion came to be known as the preliminary Badr invasion. 

After this, Karz, may Allah be pleased with him, embraced Islam and entered the sound faith. The Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ), dispatched him at the head of an army to pursue Al-'Uraniyyoon, the people who killed the shepherd of the Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ). Karz, may Allah be pleased with him, was martyred during the Conquest of Makkah, 8 A.H.
