[6] The Rectification of Modern Societies – by Shaikh Bin Baaz: [Our Belief Regarding the Sahaabah (Companions of the Prophet)]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Correct Belief Regarding The Sahaabah

The companions of the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] are the most virtuous in this Ummah. It is obligated on us to have a good suspicion of them and to believe that they are all trustworthy, and that they are the best in this Ummah after the Messenger of Allaah [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam].

It [is obligatory to believe that] they were the carriers of the Qur’aan and the Sunnah, and that their methodology has to be followed.

It [is obligatory] to declare that Allaah was pleased with them and that they are the best of all people after the prophets, just as it has been reported in the Saheehayn [Bukhari and Muslim] on the authority of Ibn Mas’ood [radiyallaahu-anhu] that the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said: ‘’The best of the people are those living in my generation; then those who will follow them, and then those who will follow the latter.”

They are on different levels in virtue – the most virtuous of them are the rightly guided khulafaa; then the ten who were guaranteed paradise, and then the remaining companions in their various levels of virtuousness and knowledge.

To be continued InShaaAllaah
