HONORING & REMEMBERING THE GREAT SAHAABI! GREAT AASHIQ E RASOOL [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] from YEMEN.
Rajab Hazrat Uwaies Qarani [Rahmatul Laahi Alaieh]
Uwais al-Qarani Arabic: أويس بن انيس القرني, was an Arab, Muslim martyr, he was a Tabaai’eeni from Yemen. He lived during the lifetime of Muhammad, [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] but never met Prophet Muhammad [Peace be upon Him] personally.
Hazrat Uwaies Qarani [Rahmatul Laahi Alaieh]was a very pious and noble person. He had embraced Islaam while Rasoolul Laah [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam]was still alive. He naturally had a very strong desire to see the Beloved Prophet but since his mother was old and she needed his help and care, he could not visit the Prophet. As a reward of his service to his mother, he was given the title and status of a Sahaabi by our Beloved Nabee [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] even though he could not see him personally.
