give Bay'ah (pledge) to you (O Muhammad S) they are giving Ba'iah (pledge)
to Allah. The Hand of Allah is over their hands. Then whoever breaks
his pledge, breaks it only to his own harm; and whoever fulfils what he has convenanted
with Allah, He will bestow on him a great reward.
Al-Fath (The Victory) The Qur-an 48:10
Sahabi (Companion of Muhammad S) is a Muslim
who had met the Messenger of Allah and died as a Muslim. The Sahabah
(Companions of Muhammad S) were exceptional Muslims, who were willing
to any thing for the cause of Allah (God) and His final Rasul
(Messenger) even at the cost of their lives.
They spent their lives strictly
in accordance to the Islamic code taught and demonstrated to them by the last
Rasul (Messenger) of Allah, Muhammad S. They
sacrificed everything for the sake of Allah (God) to follow the
Sunnah (Traditions of Muhammad S).
And the foremost who embraced Islam
of the Muhajirun (those who migrated from Makkah to Al-Madinah) and
the Ansar (the citizens of
Al-Madinag who helped and gave aid to the
Muhajirun) and also those who followed them exactly (in Faith).
Allah is well-pleased with them as they are well-pleased with Him. He has prepared
for the Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), to dwell therein forever.
That is the supreme success.
Surah (Chapter) at-Taubah
(The Repentance) Qur-an 9:100
Sahabah (Companions of Muhammad S) strived
hard to stay close to the Rasul (Messenger) of Allah, Muhammad
S to learn Islam. They faithfully transmitted the Sunnah
(Traditions of Muhammad S) to the next generation. Their self-less
hard work is evident in the one and a quarter billion strong Muslim Ummah
(Community), which try to faithfully follow the Sunnah (Traditions
of Muhammad S).
give a lot of respect to Sahabah (Companions of Muhammad
S) and recite a Du'a (Invocation) upon taking their names.
