Meaning of ‘Mukhadram’

Question

What is meant by ‘Mukhadram’ in this post?

 

Answer

A Mukhadram refers to one (Muslim) who did not meet Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) despite living during the era of Jahiliyyah (the pre- Islamic age) as well as the Prophetic era.

This applies equally whether he accepted Islam during the lifetime of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) or after that.

For example: Sayyiduna Uwais ibn ‘Amir al-Qarani (rahimahullah).

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
