Was Hazrat Abu Zarr (Radiyallahu Anhu) black in complexion?

Q: I read somewhere that Abu Zarr رضى الله عنه was a black Sahaabi but I'm not sure whether this is authentic or not. Can Mufti please highlight a few black Sahaabah and/or historical black figures in Islam?


1. This is not correct

2. Hazrat Bilaal and Hazrat Wahshi (Radhiyallahu Anhuma).

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
