Two Narrations from Imaam Ahmad-[The first narration is about comparing the Sahaabah to others and the second narration about the person who belittles them!]

Abul Haarith As-Saa’iq (rahimahullaah) said: I heard Abu Abdillaah [Imaam Ahmad (rahimahullaah)] saying: He [The Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam)] said: ‘’The best of the people are those living in my generation;” so none of his companions are to be compared to the Taabi’een” [1]

Al-Fadl Bin Ziyaad (rahimahullaah) said: I heard Abu Abdillaah [Imaam Ahmad (rahimahullaah)] whilst he was asked about a man who belittles Mu’aawiyah and Amr Ibnul Aas (radiyallaahu-anhuma), whether he should be called a Raafidi? So he [Imaam Ahmad (rahimahullaah)] said, “Indeed, he (i.e. this man) did not become insolent towards them except that he is one with hidden evil affairs (in his heart). No one belittles anyone from the companions of the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) except that he has a hidden evil (in his heart).” [2]
