Abu Darda

Once a wealthy merchant from Medina (Saudi Arabia), Abi al-Dardaa (أبي الدرداء) converted to Islam after the Battle of Badr. He became a companion of Mohammed (محمد), recording the revelations that the prophet shared with his followers. After the Muslim conquest of Syria, he served as the governor of Damascus (دمشق) under Othman Bin Aafan (عثمان بن عفان). His religious teachings are highly regarded in Islam, focusing on the renunciation of material possessions and the importance of the pursuit of knowledge.
