Abu Ubaidah Al Jarrah RA - The Honest and Most Trust

Abu Ubaidah ibn al-Jarrah (R.A)
Abu Ubaidah ibn Al Jarrah RA appearance was striking. He was slim and tall. His face was bright and he had a sparse beard. It was pleasing to look at him and refreshing to meet him. Abu Ubaidah ibn Al Jarrah RA was extremely courteous and humble and quite shy. Yet in a tough situation he would become strikingly serious and alert, resembling the flashing blade of a sword in his severity and sharpness. Abu Ubaidah ibn Al Jarrah RA was described as the"Amin"or Custodian of Rasulullah's community. His full name was Amir ibn Abdullah ibn al-Jarrah. He was known as Abu Ubaydah. Of him Abdullah ibn Umar, one of the companions of Rasulullah SAW said: "Three persons in the tribe of Quraish were most prominent, had the best character and were the most modest. If they spoke to you, they would not deceive you and if you spoke to them, they would not accuse you of lying: Abu Bakr as-Siddiq RA, Uthman ibn Affan RA and Abu Ubaidah ibn al-Jarrah RA
