Honoring the Guests:

‘Isa bin ‘Umailah Al-Fazaari (rahimahullah) mentions that a certain person told him the following:

I noticed that when Hazrat Abu Zar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) would milk his goats, he would give his neighbors and guests to drink before he drank himself. One night, I saw him milk his goats to the point where absolutely nothing remained in their udders. After presenting the milk to his guests, he placed a small amount of dates before them. He thereafter apologized to them saying, “If we had anything better than this, we would have definitely brought it before you.” I thereafter observed that Hazrat Abu Zar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) himself did not eat a single morsel that night as he had presented all that he had to his guests.

(Ibn Sa’d 4/178)

Carrying the Flag at Hunayn:

The renowned historian, Imaam Waaqidi (rahimahullah), has mentioned that Hazrat Abu Zar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) carried the flag of his tribe, the Ghifaar, during the Battle of Hunayn.

Migration to Shaam:

After the demise of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat Abu Zar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) migrated from Madinah Munawwarah to the land of Shaam.

(Usdul Ghaabah 1/344)

As Hazrat Abu Zar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was present in Shaam, he witnessed the conquest of Baytul Maqdis with Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Siyar A’laam min Nubalaa 3/379)
