Abou Ben Adhem is the anglicised name of a Muslim saint or also known as Sufi who belonged to Persia. His original name was Ibrahim Ibn-e-Adam that means “Ibrahim – the son of Adam or human” After his death in 777 AD, he was declared a saint or Wali (God’s friend).
Abou Ben Adhem was a pious man and a stern believer of Islam and God. This is why the poet prays for him “may his tribe increase!” in the beginning of the poem.
