Asim ibn Thabit (ra): Protector of Faith | The Firsts

Asim (ra) was one of the very first to protect our Prophet ﷺ, and of the most beloved companions of them all. Though he was pursued in vengeance by an ambushing tribe, he was given a miracle through his last prayer witnessed even by his most hateful enemies.

The Firsts is a weekly video series that chronicles the lives of the Sahaba (the companions of the Prophet ﷺ) during and after the time of the Prophet ﷺ.
