Who is a Sahabah ( A Companion of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ ?

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

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

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

Wallahu aʿlam.

May Allah be well-pleased with all of them.
