Zayd ibn Haritha, an emancipated slave of the Prophet, was a sincere friend and a loyal servant. Even before the Qur’an began to be revealed to the Messenger of God, he had chosen his blessed master over his own parents. Likewise, he was one of the first to embrace faith immediately after the revelations began.
Under the guidance of the Prophet, he became fully equipped to undertake various significant roles in the community and rose up to become a commander of the army. This book tells us the exemplary life story of this distinguished Companion, Zayd ibn Haritha who is a role model for everyone to realize their human potential.
