Q: I read somewhere that Abu Zarr رضى الله عنه was a black Sahaabi but I’m not sure whether this is authentic or not. Can Mufti please highlight a few black Sahaabah and/or historical black figures in Islam?
1. This is not correct
2. Hazrat Bilaal and Hazrat Wahshi (Radhiyallahu Anhuma).
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
Mufti Zakaria Makada
