Hisham ibn al-A'as (Arabic: هشام بن الأعس‎) is the son of A'as ibn Wa'il and brother of Amr ibn al-A'as and one of the early comapnions. It is known that he embraced Islam before Hijrah as can be traced from the saying of Umar, yet his exact year of becoming muslim is not known. [1] Although Hisham tried to migrate to medina along with Umar, yet his plans were failed by his family. However, after sometime he also succeeded to migrate to Medina along with Ayash (some sources say that waleed bin waleed helped them on the order of Prophet Muhammad PBUH). [2]

He freed 50 slaves on account of his father's will.[3]

He was killed in the Battle of Yarmouk in the year 13 AH (635 CE).[4]
