Who is a Sahabi?
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
A sahabi is that person who has seen the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam with his own eyes, believed in him, and died with Imaan.
There are many views regarding the definition of a Sahabi, however, this is the most widespread. (Mazahirul Haqq p.250 v.7)
