    Sahaba is arabic for just companion, friend. It doesn't mean anything else. – user4811 Jul 7 '14 at 13:08
  • A Companion of the Messenger of Allah (SAWS) is one who -- whilst in the state of Imaan (Faith) -- has (at the very least) seen the Messenger (SAWS) or even heard him speak, and then also died on Islam. We typically affix the dua (prayer) RadiAllahu anhu (May Allah be pleased with him) or anha (with her) after their names, depending upon their gender. – Najeeb Jul 8 '14 at 1:59
