CHAPTER : 1PROFILES OF THE BENEVOLENT COMPANIONS OF THE PROPHET(A.S.)HAZRAT ABU DHARR:
Abu Dharr was his patronym and the given name was Jundab bin Junada. He belonged tothe tribe of Bani Ghaffar of Arabia. There are recorded traditions to prove that after theInfallibles of the Prophet’s Family, the most exalted amongst the companions wereSalman, Abu Dharr and Miqdad. The traditions of the Holy Ahle Baith bear witness thatafter the demise of the Holy Prophet (A.S.), most of the companions turned apostate. ButSalman, Abu Dharr and Miqdad were amongst the small group of steadfastly dedicatedfollowers of the Prophet (A.S.) and his family. It is another matter that many of theapostates came to the right path later on and owed allegiance to Hazrat Ali ibne AbiTalib.(A.S.)
