Abdullah ibn Hudhafah as-Sahmi

Abdullah ibn Hudhafah as-Sahmi was a companion of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. He is best known in Islamic tradition for his role as the courier of a letter from Muhammad to Khusraw Parvez the King of Persia, and for imprisonment and torture by Heraclius, the Byzantine emperor.

According to tradition, Heraclius attempted to convert to Abdullah Christianity with bribery and torture, but Abdullah refused to recant. Eventually, Heraclius released Abdullah and other Muslim prisoners when Abdullah agreed to allow Heraclius kiss his forehead.[1]
