Abū Salama ʿAbd Allāh ibn ʿAbd al-Asad (Arabic: أَبُو سَلَمَة عَبْد ٱلله ٱبْن عَبْد ٱلْأَسَد) was one of the sahabah of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. He was also a cousin and a suckling-brother of Muhammad.
Abū Salama was one of the early companions of Muḥammad. He was born to Barrah bint Abdul Muttalib and ʿAbd al-Asad, thus making him the first cousin of Muḥammad; as Barrah was the full sister of Abdullah bin Abdul Muttalib. He was married to Umm Salama, and they were among the first who converted to Islam. They had four children: Salama, ʿUmar, Zaynab and Durra.
Military campaigns during Muhammad's epochEdit
He also participated in the Expedition of Qatan in which Muḥammad ordered to attack the Banu Asad bin Khuzaymah tribe after receiving intelligence that they were allegedly plotting to attack Medina. 3 people were captured by Muslims during the expedition
