This article is about Imam's apprentice. You may be looking for Sergeant Abu.

Abu was the apprentice of Imam on the outskirts of Cairo in Egypt in 1936.[1]


In 1936, Imam's apprentice Abu unwittingly supplied Indiana Jones with a bowl of tainted dates, poisoned by the Monkey Man while Abu was away attending to other duties. On his return he briefly caught sight of the man in the doorway but supplied the food regardless,[2] bemused by Jones' theatrics of flicking a date in the air instead of simply just eating it.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Abu was played by Kiran Shah in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
