Ammar bin Yasir (R)

Name: Ammar bin Yasir Al Anasi (R)

Mother's name: Sumayyah (Radiyallahu Anha)

Death: 37 A.H.

Title: At Tayyibul Mutayyab (One who is pure and chaste in every way) and One who is protected from Shaytan

Hazrat Yasir (R) was the father of Ammar (R) who was originally from Yemen and later settled in Makkah Mukarramah. Abu Huzaifah bin Mughirah facilitated the marriage of Hazrat Yasir (R) to his slave-woman Hazrat Sumayyah (Radiyallahu Anha) who was later set free. Hazrat Ammar (R) was born from this union.

This family was amongst the early adherents to Islam and had to endure severe persecution in Makkah Mukarramah. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) would console them and encourage them to remain steadfast. Ammar's (R) parent's passed away as a result of the persecution.

Hazrat Ammar (R) migrated to Madeenah Munawwarah and participated in the Battle of Badr and all the subsequent battles. He was martyred in the Battle of Siffeen in 37 A.H. aged 93. A large group of people narrate Ahadith from him.


Once Hazrat Ammar (R) sought permission from Rasulullah r to enter. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied, “Permit him - welcome to At-Tayyibul Mutayyab (the pure and chaste one)”. (Tirmizi, Ibn Majah )

In a lengthy narration, Hazrat Abu Darda (R) narrates that Hazrat Ammar (R) is one who Allah protected him from Shaytan. (Bukhari)
