Salim Mawla Abu Hudhayfa

Salim Mawla Abu Hudhayfa (Arabic: سالم مولى أبي حذيفة‎) was one of the sahaba of the Prophet Muhammad. He was named so since he was the freed slave of Abu Hudhayfa ibn 'Utba, see Mawla.

He participated in the battle against Musaylimah as a standard bearer of the Muhajireen and displayed unexpected valour. His people feared that he would show weakness or be too terrified to fight. To them he said, "If you manage to overtake me, what a miserable bearer of the Qur'an I shall be." He then valiantly plunged into the enemy ranks and eventually died in battle.

The Prophet Muhammad is quoted as saying:

"Learn the Qur'an from four persons: Abd-Allah ibn Mas'ud, Salim Mawla Abu Hudhayfa, Ubayy ibn Kab and Muadh ibn Jabal."

He had contributed in all major battles, such as Badr, Uhud, Ahzab etc., so he is a Badrian Companion of the Prophet Muhammad.
