One of the greatest names in our history and tradition, as well as being one of the earliest converts of Islam is indeed Abdullah Ibn Masu’d(R). In this Episode of Lives of The Khulafaa, Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi covers his biography in details.

Abdullah Ibn Masu’d(R) belongs to a Non-Qurashi Arab tribe by the name of ‘Banu Huthayl’, hence he is called ‘Huthali’. His father, Masu’d Ibn Ghaafil, had migrated to Makkah for business purposes. He had formed an alliance with somebody from the tribe of ‘Banu Zuhra’, the same tribe which the mother of the Prophet(S) was from. His mother was also from the tribe of the ’Huthali’. Furthermore, she had an interesting name, ‘Umm ‘Abd’. For some unknown reasons, his grandfather named his mother ‘Umm ‘Abd’, meaning the mother of the slave. That is why Abdullah Ibn Masu’d(R) was always also called ‘Ibn Umm ‘Abd’. Even the Prophet(S) called him by this name multiple times.
According to the books of Seerah and Hadith, Abdullah Ibn Masu’d(R) was an extremely short man. Some incidents mention that if he was walking amongst people who were seated, some would assume that he himself was amongst them who were seated.
