Abdullah ibn Rawaha ibn Tha'labah (Arabic: عَبْد ٱللَّٰه ٱبْن رَوَاحَة ٱبْن ثَعْلَبَة, ʿAbd Allāh ibn Rawāḥah ibn Thaʿlabah) was one of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad who was martyred in the Battle of Mu'tah.
He was one of the twelve representatives of the Ansar who took an oath of allegiance before the Hijrah, and later spread Islam to Medina. Also he was among the 73 that pledged allegiance to Muhammad in Medina. He is said to have been alert to the supposed plots of Abd-Allah ibn Ubayy.
Abdullah ibn Rawaha was third in command during the Battle of Mu'tah and was subsequently killed during the battle. He also led his own expion known as the Expion of Abdullah ibn Rawaha, where he was sent to assassinate Al-Yusayr ibn Rizam.
