13 – Hudhayfa ibn al-Yaman – The Trusted Confidante

In this podcast Shaykh Sadullah Khan introduces the great companion Hudhayfa ibn al-Yaman (may Allah be pleased with him). He was from the tribe ‘Abs, who had accepted Islam. Hudhayfa grew up between both Makka and Madina. This is how Hudhyfa had a connection to both Makka and Madina. Hudhayfa grew up in a Muslim household. His parents were of the first to accept Islam in Madina, therefore he accepted Islam before meeting Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bless him and give him peace). Hudhayfa’s was trustworthy and had a sharp mind. Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) confided in Hudhayfa who the hypocrites were. Thus Hudhayfa became known as the the bearer of the Prophet’s secrets (peace and blessings be upon him). Hudhayfa participated in all the battles with the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) except Badr.
