Something On The Sahaaba.

Recommended Posts

As-Salaam alaikum,

About the Noble Companions (Sahaaba) of the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, may Allah be pleased with them all, Allah Ta'ala says in the Holy Qur'an:--

       "You are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right,

      forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah..." (3:110)


  "The vanguard (of Islam)- the first of those who forsook

(their homes) and of those who gave them aid, and (also)

those who follow them in (all) good deeds, - well pleased

is Allah with them, as are they with Him: For them has He prepared

Gardens under which rivers flow; to dwell therein for ever:

That is the supreme Felicity." (9:100)


In many other places in the Qur'an, Allah Ta'ala praises and shows His Pleasure for the companions of the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam. Their behavior and actions were witnessed by the Prophet and approved by him..... meaning that their behavior was also approved by Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala as it is an acceptable principle that the Prophet is not allowed to approve of something which is essentially wrong. So, we must emulate the Sahaaba in our behavior and actions, particularly minding:--

(1) That any action we take is correct in accordance with the Shari'a

(2) To remember and think about death often, as this helps in detaching ourselves to worldly pleasures.

(3) Learning to forgive others who may have offended us in mu'amalat

(4) We should have high respect for all Muslims and desire good for them, noting that every Muslim is inviolable to another Muslim- his blood, wealth and honour.

(5) Performance of the late night prayers (Tahajjud), as the Prophet, alaihi salaat wassalaam, said:--

      "Stick to the late-night prayer for it was the custom of the pious people before you,

     it is also a means of getting closer to your Lord; it wipes away your evil deeds, and

   keeps one from committing sins." (Ahmad, Tirmidhi, Al-Hakim and others) al-Jami as-Saghir, vol. 2 Hadith No. 4079.
