The Ṣaḥābah (الصحابة Companions) were the companions of Prophet Muhammad. According to traditional Islamic sciences, an individual must have seen Muhammad, believed in his prophethood and died as a believer in order to be considered a Sāhib or companion. So this would exclude Ubayd-Allah ibn Jahsh (brother of Zainab bint Jash, the cousin and wife of Muhammad), who was considered one of the Sahabah but later converted to Christianity. Those that saw Muhammad but held off believing in him until after his death are not considered Sahabah but rather Tabi'un. In hadith attributed to Muhammad, he says that the Sahābah are among the best generation of Muslims on Earth, along with the Tabi‘un and the Tabi' al-Tabi'un.
