Who was Ka’ab al-Ahbar?


Ka’ab al-Ahbar was a notable convert to Islam from a Jewish background. The Sahaba, companions of the Prophet (saw), used to ask him about the old tales of Bani Isra’eel (Isra’iliyyat) because he knew the old Jewish history.

It is important to be aware that Ka’ab wasn’t a major or significant hadith narrator. There are no narrations of him in Sahihayn (Bukhari & Muslim).
