Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud
When he was still a youth, not yet past the age of puberty, he used to roam the mountain trails of
Makkah far away from people, tending the flocks of a Quraysh chieftain, Uqbah ibn Muayt. People
called him “Ibn Umm Abd”Ñthe son of the mother of a slave. His real name was Abdullah and his
father’s name was Mas’ud.
