Zubayr Ibn Awwam (ra): The Disciple

While there were many honors bestowed upon the companions of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ that were shared and unique, the son of Saffiyah was the only one named as the Prophet’s disciple. He answered every call of the Prophet ﷺ, and for that was given the glad tidings of a special home in Paradise.
