The list of non-Arab Sahaba includes the non-Arabs among the original Sahaba of Muhammad. Muhammad had many followers from amongst the Arabs, from many different tribes. However, he also had many non-Arab Sahaba, from many different ethnicities. Some of these non-Arabs were among the most beloved and loyal individuals to Muhammad. The inclusion of these non-Arabs among the original followers of Muhammad and Islam represents the universality of the message of Islam.

- Suhayb ar-Rumi (Suhayb the Roman) - He was an Arab who was taken prisoner while still a little boy by Byzantine Empire soldiers, when they attacked a village he was in. Thereafter, for about twenty years he passed from one Byzantine slave-master to another and grew up speaking Greek and practically forgot Arabic. He later escaped from slavery and headed for Mecca- which was considered a place of asylum. There people called him Suhayb ar-Rumi because of his peculiarly heavy speech and blond hair. Later in Mecca, after meeting with Muhammad, he converted to Islam. When Muhammad migrated from Mecca to Medina, Suhayb gave up his vast wealth in order to be alongside him in Medina. His standing among the Muslims was so high that he was nominated by the Caliph Umar ibn al-Khattab to lead the Muslims (both in prayers and as head of the Muslim community) in the period between his (Umar’s) death and the election of his successor.
