As salam o aleykum
Is someone considered a sahabi if he saw Prophet (pbuh) after he passed away and before he was buried?
Wa `alaykum salam,
Sahabi is someone who saw the Prophet (s), believed in him and died as a Muslim. Imam Al-Ghazali defines a sahabi as one who accompanied the Prophet Muhammad (s) for a year or two and fought with him in a battle.
