Bilal ibn al-Harith

Bilal ibn al-Harith (died ca. 682) was a sahaba. His full name was Bilal ibn al-Harith ibn 'Asim ibn Sa'id ibn Qurrah ibn Khaladah ibn Tha'labah Abu 'Abd ar-Rahman al-Mazani.


He came to Muhammad in the deputation from Muzaynah in 627, and carried the banner for Muzaynah on the day of the Muslim Conquest of Mecca in 630. About Ibn al-Harith it is narrated in the book of hadith, Sunan Abi Da'ud, Book 19:

[Muhammad] assigned as a fief to Bilal ibn Harith al-Muzani the mines of al-Qabaliyyah, on both the upper and lower side. The narrator, Ibn an-Nadr, added: "also Jars and Dhat an-Nusub." The agreed version reads: "and (the land) which is suitable for cultivation at Quds". He did not assign to Bilal ibn al-Harith the right of any Muslim. [Muhammad] wrote a document to him: "This is what the [Muhammad] assigned to Bilal ibn al-Harith al-Muzani. He gave him the mines of al-Qabaliyyah both those which lay on the upper and lower side, and that which is fit for cultivation at Quds. He did not give him the right of any Muslim."[1][2]

He later lived in Basra (modern day Iraq), and died in 682 in the last days of the reign of the caliph Muawiyah I.[3]
