Men Around The Prophet Mohammad – S1E06 –Abu Dhar al-Ghifari
Abu Dahr hears of the arrival of the Prophet, and due to this lack of belief in the gods of his people, and his shared ideals of the Prophet regarding their being one God, he went to see him. He meets Ali, and after some reservation, tells him about his desire to meet the Prophet. After his encounter with the prophet he embraces Islam, and the Prophet requests him to go back to his people in Ghifar to wait for his message, and to remain in secret till then. Abu Dhar disregards this, and proclaims his allegiance to the Prophet and Allah, and is assaulted by the people of Quraysh. He is saved by Al-Abbas. The people Ghifar and the Aslam tribe go to the Prophet and are welcomed, and Abu Dhar came along later, despite facing difficulties along the way, and the Prophet honored him.
