Who is a Sahabah ( A Companion of Prophet Muhammad ?

The Jumhur (vast majority) - Allah knows best - define the Sahabi as one who

1. saw the Prophet even for a split second
2. believed in him when seeing him
3. died a Muslim.

One who saw the Prophet while a disbeliever then believed in him only after the time of the Prophet , is a Tabi`i. The latter case is the rare instance mentioned by the scholars of "a Tabi`i who saw the Prophet ."

Wallahu a`lam.

May Allah be well-pleased with all of them.
