Maaz ibn Jabal (Arabic: مُعاذ ابن جبل‎‎) (603 – 639) was one of the companions of the Islamic prophet Muhammad.[1][2] He belonged to the tribe of Banu Khazraj. He accepted Islam before the Second pledge at al-Aqabah. He was known as the one with a lot of knowledge.[3] He was called by Muhammad, "the one who will lead the scholars into Paradise." Muhammad sent Maaz to Yemen to teach its people about Islam. He also helped in collecting the Quran in written form.[1]
