Abu Ubaidah ibn al-Jarrah (RA) was one of the “Ten Promised Paradise”: ten Companions who received glad tidings of Paradise on the same occasion during the lifetime of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Among them were the four great Caliphs: Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, and Ali—but who was Abu Ubaidah ibn al-Jarrah?
He was one of the earliest converts and strongest supporters of the Prophet. The Prophet called him “the Amin (the trustworthy one) of our community”. Aisha even said that Abu Ubaidah was the most beloved Companion of the Prophet after Abu Bakr. He was such an outstanding Companion that Caliph Umar, as he was dying, wished Abu Ubaidah was still alive so he could nominate him as his successor. Subhan Allah.
