Allaahs’ praise of the Companions is widely mentioned in The Qur’an. And their virtue and excellence is part of the creed of any Muslims. Surely we love what Allaah loves , and we give precedence to whom Allaah gave precedence.
For example :
Allah (عز و جل) says in the Noble Qur’an :
“And the former, the first from amongst the muhajirun and the ansar, and those who followed them in righteousness, Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him. And He has prepared for them gardens of which rivers flow below, abiding therein forever, that is great success.”
[Suratu At-Tawbah: 100]
And The Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وسلّم) said :
“The best of my nation is my generation then those who follow them and then those who follow them.” [Saheeh Bukhari]
And more on the excellence of the companions, please see our link section where there is a must-read book on the creed a Muslim has concerning the Companions.
Now, lets look at what the rawaafidha believe of the Companions (رضّى الله عنهم) :
The destructed Ayatush-Shaytaan Khomenie says [in the book : al-wasiyyah siyasiya] :
‘ I completely presume that the Iranian youth -in their millions of numbers- in this current time : they are better than the people of al-Hijaaz [Makkah & Madina and sorrounding areas] during the time of The Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وسلّم) !!!…
And they are better than the people of Koofah in Iraaq during the time of the prince of believers [Alee] , and Husayn [may Allaah be pleased with both of them] … ’
End of his words:
So who do you believe , Allaah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) and then The Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وسلّم) who said the Companions (رضّى الله عنهم) are the best of people, or this Human+
who says such repungent words ?!!
And for you is the text :
فهذا هو الذي أردت أن أنبه إليه ، فإن أصبت فمن الله. وإن أخطأت فمن نفسي، والله تعالى أسأل أن يعصمنا وإياكم من الزلل ومن كل ما لا
