Suraqa ibn Malik (ra): The Bounty Hunter | The Firsts

Suraqa ibn Malik (ra) went out as a disbeliever hunting the Prophet ﷺ for 100 camels, then came back a believer with the bracelets of the ruler of Persia. Dr. Omar Suleiman shares this remarkable story about prophecy even in vulnerability.

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.
