Abu Salama ʿAbd Allāh ibn ʿAbd al-Asad al-Makhzumi (Arabic: أبو سلمة عبد الله بن عبد الأسد المخزومي‎) was one of the companions of Muhammad.


Abu Salama was one of the early companions of Muhammad. He was born to Barrah Bint Abdul Muttalib and Abdul Asad, thus making him the first cousin of Muhammad; as Barrah was the full sister of Abdullah bin Abdul Mutalib.[1] He was married to Umm Salama, and they were among the first who converted to Islam. They had four children: Salama, Umar, Zaynab and Durra.

Abu Salama was also involved in the migration towards Ethiopia but later came back under the protection of his uncle Abu Talib bin Abdul Mutallib.[1]

Military campaigns during Muhammad's epoch

Abu Salama died from a wound he sustained during the Battle of Uhud that reopened after he had led the Expedition of Qatan. After his death, Muhammad married his widow.

He also participated in the Expedition of Qatan in which Muhammad ordered to attack the Banu Asad bin Khuzaymah tribe after receiving intelligence that they were allegedly plotting to attack Medina.[2] 3 people were captured by Muslims during the expedition[3]
