Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (رحمه الله) On The Sahabah (رضي الله عنهم أجمعين)


Among the fundamentals of the people of the Sunnah and the community is purity of heart and tongue toward the Companions (رضي الله عنهم) of the Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah سبحانه و تعالى just as Allah سبحانه و تعالى has described them:

"Those who came after them (the Sahabah) say: 'Our Lord forgive us. Forgive our brethren who preceded us in faith. Purify our hearts of any rancor toward the believers. Our Lord, You are Gentle, Compassionate." (al-Hashr 59/l0)

Obey the saying of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) :

"Do not revile my companions (رضي الله عنهم). By (Allah) in Whose Hand my soul is!, if any one of you spends gold (piled up) like (mount) 'Uhud it will not equal a pint of any one of them, nor its half." (al-Bukhari, Muslim, Abu-Dawud, at-Tirmidhi Ibn Majah, Ibn Hanbal)

(The people of the Sunnah) accept what the Qur'an, the Sunnah, and the consensus brought them of the Sahabah's (رضي الله عنهم) virtues and high ranks; So they prefer those who spent (their wealth) and fought before the victory -which is the treaty of al-Hudaybiyah - over those who spent and fought after it. They prefer the Muhajirun (رضي الله عنهم) (Immigrants) over the Ansar (رضي الله عنهم) (Helpers). They believe that Allah said to the people of Badr - they were over three hundred-: "Do whatever you wish, I have already forgiven you." (Abu Dawud)

And "they believe that no one who pledged allegiance to the Prophet (peace be upon him) under the tree will enter Hell" (Muslim), as the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) had declared; but that Allah was pleased with them and they with Him - and they were more than one thousand and four hundred.

They assign to Paradise whoever the Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah assigned there such as the ten, and Thabit Ibn Qays Ibn Shammas (رضي الله عنه), and others of amongst the Sahabah (رضي الله عنهم).

They accept what has been reported continuously from the Prince of the Believers, 'Ali Ibn Abi Talib (رضي الله عنه), and from others, that the best men of this 'Ummah after its Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) are: Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه); then 'Umar (رضي الله عنه); third, 'Uthman (رضي الله عنه), and fourth, 'Ali Ibn Abi Talib (رضي الله عنه). All Traditions have indicated, and all Sahabah (may Allah be pleased with them all) have agreed upon giving priority to 'Uthman (رضي الله عنه) out of regard for his allegiance (al-Bai'ah), although some of the people of the Sunnah are disputing over whether 'Uthman (رضي الله عنه) or 'Ali (رضي الله عنه) has the priority, after they (the people of the Sunnah) had agreed upon giving priority to Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه) and 'Umar (رضي الله عنه). Some people gave the priority to 'Uthman (رضي الله عنه) and kept silent and considered 'Ali (رضي الله عنه) to be the fourth. However, some people preferred 'Ali (رضي الله عنه). And some remained neutral. But the people of the Sunnah settled on preferring 'Uthman (رضي الله عنه), even though this matter - the matter of 'Uthman (رضي الله عنه) and 'Ali (رضي الله عنه) - is not of the fundamentals. The majority of the people of the Sunnah do not consider disagreeing in this matter as being misled. Rather, it is in the matter of the "Question of the Caliphate" where they consider the disagreeing person to be misled.

Ahl as-Sunnah believe that the Caliph after the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) is Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه); then 'Umar (رضي الله عنه); then 'Uthman (رضي الله عنه), then 'Ali (رضي الله عنه), and that whoever contests the Caliphate of any one of these Imams is indeed more lost than an ass.

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم stated: 'After the Prophets and Messengers عليهم الصلاة والسلام, Allah سبحانه و تعالى blessed my companions رضي الله عنهم أجمعينر above all of mankind, and from amongst them He blessed Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Ali رضي الله عنهم أجمعين. In every one of my Companions رضي الله عنهم أجمعين there are excellent qualities.' (Tafsir Qurtubi, vol 16, p297/ Majmaul Zawaid, vol 10, p16)

In this nation, the status that the Blessed Companions رضي الله عنهم أجمعين have been honoured with is not attainable by anyone else. They learnt their Deen and morals directly from the most perfect guide to mankind, the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. No scholar or learned person in this nation can ever reach the level of thought, wisdom and action with which Allah favoured the Blessed Companions رضي الله عنهم أجمعين.

Sayyidina Abdullah Ibn Mas'ood رضي الله عنه related with regards to the unique status of the Companions رضي الله عنهم أجمعين of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم: 'These are The Companions رضي الله عنهم أجمعين of the Prophet ! The sincerity of their hearts, the depth of their knowledge, and simplicity of their nature cannot be matched in this nation! Allah chose them for the companionship of His Prophet and the establishment of His Deen. For this reason, O People! Recognise the greatness of these individuals and follow them. Verily, these companions are upon the true guidance.' (Mishkaat, p32)

Abu 'Urwah Zubairi (رحمه الله) says he was sitting in one of the sessions of Imam Malik (رحمه الله) when a person uttered a belittling statement against the blessed Companions (رضي الله عنهم أجمعين). The Imam (رحمه الله) recited the verse:



"Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are hard against the disbelievers, compassionate among themselves; you will see them bowing down in Ruku', prostrating in Sajdah, seeking bounty from Allah and (His) good pleasure; their distinguishing feature is on their faces from the effect of Sajdah (prostration). This is their description in the Torah; and their description in the Injil is: like a sown crop that brings forth its shoot, then makes it strong, then it grows thick and stands straight on its stem, looking good to the farmers, - so that He may enrage the disbelievers through them. Allah has promised forgiveness and a huge reward to those of them who believe and do good deeds." (48:29)

When he came to "so that He may enrage the disbelievers through them", he said that this warning will apply to anyone who belittles the blessed Companions (رضي الله عنهم أجمعين). (Qurtubi); (Ma'ariful Qur'an).

Hafiz Abul Qasim ibn 'Asakir (رحمه الله) has documented in Tarikh Dimashq that Imam an-Nasa'i (رحمه الله) was asked about Mu'awiyah Ibn Abi Sufyan (رضي الله عنهما). His reply was:

'Islam is like a house with a door. The door of Islam is the Sahaba (رضي الله عنهم أجمعين). Whoever speaks ill of the Sahaba (رضي الله عنهم أجمعين) seeks but to harm Islam, just like one who knocks a door to enter a house. As for Mu'awiyah (رضي الله عنه), whoever speaks ill of him seeks to find a way to speak ill of the Sahaba (رضي الله عنهم أجمعين).'

(Cited in Tahdhib al-Kamal, vol. 1 p. 339)

سُئل أبوعبد الرحمن النسائي عن معاويةَ بن أبي سفيان رضي الله عنهما فقال

إنما الإسلام كدارٍ لها بابٌ، فبابُ الإسلام الصحابة، فمن آذى الصحابةَ إنما أرادَ الإسلام، كمن نَقرَ البابَ إنما يريدُ دخولَ الدار. قال: فمن أراد معاويةَ فإنما أراد الصحابة.

Ibn Hazm (رحمه الله) About Agreement Of The Companions (رضي الله عنهم أجمعين)


Allama ibn Hazm (رحمه الله) in his short treatise "an-Nubaz al-kafiya fi akhamil usul ad-deen" said:

"Contrary to this, the one who goes against agreement of the Companions (رضي الله عنهم أجمعين), and deliberately transgresses it, if there is a proof (for him established) and he was informed and (he) still persists - then he would be considered a disbeliever."

Source: "an-Nubaz al-kafiya fi akhamil usul ad-deen" p 21

And he also said:

"Each person who comes after and he acts in accordance to agreement of the Companions (رضي الله عنهم أجمعين) and doesn't contradict it, is considered a believer. The one who goes against agreement because of lack of knowledge regarding such - his words are not taken into account. The one who acts contrary to it, while he knows, and persist in this - is a disbeliever."

Source: "an-Nubaz al-kafiya fi akhamil usul ad-deen" p25

Sayyidina 'Abdullaah Ibn Mas'ood (رضي الله عنه), who is one of the most senior Sahabah in terms of knowledge and Taqwa, gave this advice to the Ummah in respect of the status of the Sahabah (رضي الله عنهم), upon which we should reflect wholeheartedly:

'Sayyidina Ibn Mas'ood (رضي الله عنه) stated: 'If you wish to follow the way of anyone, then follow the path of the Sahabah (رضي الله عنهم). These Sahabah (رضي الله عنهم) had pure hearts, depth of knowledge, were devoid of show and pomp, had simplicity and were the best people of this Ummah. Allaah (سبحانه و تعالى) preferred this great group of the Sahabah (رضي الله عنهم) for the company of his most beloved Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and used them to establish his Deen. For this reason, their greatness should be recognised and their path followed, as truly they were those who were upon the rightly guided straight path.' (Mishkaat Masabih, p32)

Ibn Battah relates that Ibn 'Abbas رضي الله عنهما said, 'Do not revile the Companions رضي الله عنهم of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم! As an incident in which any one of them participated in, even for a single hour (with the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم), is better than forty years' worth of deeds by any one of you.' And in the narration of Waki', '...is better than an entire life span's worth of deeds by any one of you.'

When Sa'id Ibn Zayd listed the ten Companions رضي الله عنهم given glad tidings of being from amongst the people of Paradise, he remarked: "By Allah, an incident in which any one of them participated in with the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم, whereby his face became dusty and dishevelled, is better than the deeds of any one of you, even if he were to live the duration of Prophet Nuh (عليه السلام)."

Ayyoob as-Sakhtiyani رحمه الله said,

"Whoever loves Abu Bakr رضي الله عنه, it is he who erected the minaret of the deen.

Whoever loves 'Umar رضي الله عنه, it is he who made the way clear.

Whoever loves 'Uthmaan رضي الله عنه, he was illuminated by the light of Allaah سبحانه و تعالى.

Whoever loves 'Ali كرم الله وجهه, he took hold of the firmest handhold.

Whoever says good about the Companions رضي الله عنهم of the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم is free of hypocrisy."

The Status of the Noble Companions رضي الله عنهم


"Allah سبحانه و تعالى selected a group to accompany the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and receive the Shari'ah from him; they are the best of his ummah."

[This article is part of a free translation of 'aqidah ahl al-sunnah wa al-jama'ah fi al-sahabah al-kiram by 'Abd al-Muhsin al-'Abbad]

A manifestation of Allah's mercy and favour upon His slaves is that He sent to them a Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم to convey His message, guide them to all that is good and warn them from all that is harmful. The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم assumed this capacity and accomplished the trust borne on him in a perfect manner; he guided his nation [ummah] towards every good, warned them from every evil and advised them in a sincere and manifest way.

Allah سبحانه و تعالى selected a group of people to accompany the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and receive the Shari'ah from him, they are held to be the best of his ummah, which in turn is the best of all ummahs. Allah honoured them with companionship of His Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and favoured them in this life by enabling them to see him and hear his speech directly from his noble mouth; that indeed is the favour of Allah, He gives it to whoever He wills and Allah is the Possessor of great bounty.

The Companions رضي الله عنهم conveyed the light and guidance Allah had sent the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم with in an impeccable manner. They attained an immense reward for their companionship of the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم, for the jihad they engaged in alongside him and the great efforts they expended in spreading Islam. Even though they are a people who have passed away long ago, they remain in constant receipt of rewards for the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم has said, 'Whosoever calls to guidance has a reward equal to the reward of one who acts upon the guidance without the latter's own reward decreasing in any way' as established from the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم in a hadith related by Muslim in his Sahih [1].

Allah سبحانه و تعالى has praised them in His Honoured Book as has the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم and this suffices as a testament to their excellence and nobility. Allah says,


'And the former, the first from amongst the migrants [muhajirun] and the helpers [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 the great success."

Allah سبحانه و تعالى says, 'Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those with him are harsh against the disbelievers and merciful amongst themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating (in prayer), seeking bounty and pleasure from Allah. Their mark (of faith) is on their faces from the effect of prostration; that is their similitude in the Torah, and their similitude in the Gospel [Injil] is like that of a seed which sends forth it's shoot, then makes it strong, then thick and then causing it to stand erect on it's stem thereby delighting the sowers - that He may make the disbelievers enraged with them. Allah has promised those among them who believe and work righteous deeds, forgiveness and a great reward."

The clause, 'that He may make the disbelievers enraged with them' carries a grave judgement and harsh warning for one who is infuriated by the Companions or has in his heart any hatred for them.

Allah سبحانه و تعالى also says,
'...Not equal amongst you are those who spent and fought before al‑Fath [2] (with those who did so later). Such are greater in rank than those who spent and fought afterwards; Allah has promised all of them the best (reward), and Allah is well aware of what you do."

Allah سبحانه و تعالى says, when specifying those eligible to receive booty, '(There is also a share in this booty) for the poor Muhajirun, who were expelled from their homes and wealth as a result of seeking the bounty and pleasure of Allah; they give aid to Allah and His Messenger. They are indeed the truthful ones. And those who lived in Ad-Dar (Madinah) and believed before them, love those who have emigrated to them and have no jealousy concealed in themselves to that which they (i.e., the Muhajirun) have been given. They give preferences to others over themselves even if they themselves are in need; and those protected from their own covetousness, they indeed are the successful ones. And those who come after them say, "Our Lord, forgive us and our brothers who have preceded us in faith [iman]; and do not place in our hearts any hatred for those who have believed. Our Lord, You are indeed, full of Kindness, Most-Merciful".'

This last passage consists of three verses from Surah Al-Hashr: the first addresses the Muhajirun رضي الله عنهم, the second the Ansar رضي الله عنهم and the third are those who come after the Muhajirun and Ansar who seek forgiveness for them and ask Allah سبحانه و تعالى not to place any hatred for them in their hearts. Anyone not belonging to one of these three groups is wretched and entrapped by the snares of Shaytan; and this is why 'A`ishah رضي الله عنها said to 'Urwah Ibn Az-Zubayr رضي الله عنه in reference to some of these forsaken people, 'They were ordered to seek forgiveness for the Companions of the Messenger of Allah and instead reviled them!'

Muslim رحمة اللہ علیه related this towards the end of his Sahih [3]; and An-Nawawi رحمة اللہ علیه on commenting on this hadith and referring to these verses states, 'and with these verses, Imam Malik رحمة اللہ علیه supported his judgment: that one who reviles the companions رضي الله عنهم has no right to a share in the booty as Allah allowed it only to those who come after them who specifically seek forgiveness for them.' [4]

Ibn Kathir رحمة اللہ علیه stated in his Tafsir [5], 'How excellent indeed is the finding derived by Imam Malik رحمة اللہ علیه from this verse: that the Rafidhi [6] who curses the companions رضي الله عنهم has no share in the booty as he lacks the quality found in those whom Allah praises on account of their supplication...'

Numerous hadiths also bear testimony to their status, the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم has said: "The best of people are those living in my generation [qarn], then those who follow them, then those who follow them" Al‑Bukhari, Muslim and others related this hadith by way of the Companions 'Imran Ibn Husayn[7] رضي الله عنه and 'Abdullah Ibn Mas'ud[8] رضي الله عنه.

Muslim رحمة اللہ علیه also related it via Abu Hurayrah رضي الله عنه with the following wording: "The best of my ummah is the generation in which I have been sent, then those who follow them, then those who follow them and Allah knows best as to whether he (i.e., the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم) repeated that statement a third time." [9]

Muslim رحمة اللہ علیه relates it by way of 'A`ishah رضي الله عنها saying, 'A man asked the Prophet, "Who are the best people?" He replied, "The generation which I am in, then the second, then the third".' [10]

In both Sahih Al-Bukhari رحمة اللہ علیه and Sahih Muslim رحمة اللہ علیه, Abu Sa'eed Al‑Khudri رضي الله عنه relates that the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, 'A time will come upon people, when a group of them will embark upon a military expedition, whereupon it will be said, "Is there amongst you anyone who has accompanied Allah's Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم?" They will say, "Yes." And so victory will be bestowed upon them. Then a time will come upon people when a group of them will embark upon a military expedition, whereupon it will be said, "Is there amongst you anyone who has accompanied the companions of Allah's Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم?" They will say, "Yes." And so victory will be bestowed upon them. Then a time will come upon people when a group of them will embark upon a military expedition, whereupon it will be said, "Is there amongst you anyone who has been in the company of the companions of the companions of Allah's Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم?" They will say, "Yes." And so victory will be bestowed upon them.' [11]

Ibn Battah رحمة اللہ علیه relates that Ibn 'Abbas رضي الله عنهما said, 'Do not revile the Companions of Muhammad! As an incident in which any one of them participated in, even for a single hour (with the Messenger of Allah), is better than forty years' worth of deeds by any one of you.'

And in the narration of Waki' رحمة اللہ علیه, '...is better than an entire life span's worth of deeds by any one of you.'

When Sa'eed Ibn Zayd رضي الله عنه listed the ten Companions رضي الله عنهم given glad tidings of being from amongst the people of Paradise, he remarked: "By Allah, an incident in which any one of them participated in with the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم, whereby his face became dusty and dishevelled, is better than the deeds of any one of you, even if he were to live the duration of Nuh." Abu Dawud رحمة اللہ علیه and At-Tirmidhi رحمة اللہ علیه related it [12].

Jabir رضي الله عنه reported that it was said to 'A`ishah رضي الله عنها, 'There exists certain people who speak ill about the Companions of the Prophet, including Abu Bakr رضي الله عنه and 'Umar رضي الله عنه!' to which she replied, 'And why are you so amazed at such a thing? Their deeds ceased [13], so Allah desired that their reward should not.' Ibn Al-Athir رحمة اللہ علیه recorded this narration in his book Jami' Al-Usul.

A proof for this fact (mentioned by 'A`ishah رضي الله عنها) is the saying of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم in the authentic Hadith, 'The bankrupt person from my ummah will be the one who will turn up on the Day of Resurrection having prayed, fasted and given zakah, but he comes having hurled abuse upon this one, slandered that one, unlawfully consumed the wealth of someone else, shed the blood of another and struck yet another; so his good deeds will be credited to this one, that one and so on. If however, his good deeds are depleted before his account is settled, then a compensatory amount of their sins will be cast upon him, and he will then be thrown into the Fire.' [14]

Al-Bukhari رحمة اللہ علیه relates in his Sahih from Abu Sa'eed Al-Khudri رضي الله عنه that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, 'Do not revile my companions! For if one of you were to spend in charity the weight of Uhud in gold, it would not be equal to a mudd [15] spent by anyone of them, nor half of it.' [16]

Muslim رحمة اللہ علیه relates the same hadith from Abu Hurayrah رضي الله عنه that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, 'Do not revile my companions! Do not revile my companions! For by the One Who my soul is in His Hand, if one of you were to spend in charity the weight of Uhud in gold, it would not be equal to a mudd spent by anyone of them, nor half of it.' [17]

Muslim رحمة اللہ علیه also relates it from Abu Sa'eed Al-Khudri رضي الله عنه with the following wording, 'An argument transpired between Khalid Ibn Al‑Walid رضي الله عنه and 'Abdurrahman Ibn ''Awf رضي الله عنه, whereupon Khalid رضي الله عنه reviled 'Abdurrahman رضي الله عنه, at that the Messenger of Allah proclaimed, "Do not revile any one of my Companions! For if one of you were to spend in charity the weight of Uhud in gold, it would not be equal to a mudd spent by anyone of them, nor half of it".' [18]

If the many deeds of Khalid Ibn Al-Walid رضي الله عنه, and others like him from amongst those who accepted Islam after Al‑Hudaybiyyah, are of no comparison with a few deeds of 'Abdurrahman Ibn 'Awf رضي الله عنه and others like him who accepted Islam early on, bearing in mind that all were honoured with having accompanied the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, how will the comparison fare between those who did not accompany the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم at all and these exemplary people? The difference is without doubt enormous; and that indeed is the favour of Allah, He gives it to whoever He wills and Allah سبحانه و تعالى is the Possessor of great bounty.

These are some of the Qur'anic verses and prophetic narrations confirming the excellence of these virtuous people - the like of whom has never been and nor will there ever be.

On the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayra رضي الله عنه who said: The Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, "Allaah, the Almighty, has said, 'Whoever acts with enmity towards a friend (wali) of Mine, I declare war upon him.'"

[al-Bukhari; al-Bayhaqi in az-Zuhd al-Kabeer, Sunan al-Kubra and in some of his other works; al-Baghawi also recorded it in both Sharh as-Sunnah and Maseebah as-Sunnah]

Whoever opposes the noble Companions (may Allaah be pleased with them all) is actually opposing the Auliya of Allaah سبحانه و تعالى. This is a point many evil deluded groups, including but not restricted to the Shia, have neglected.

It is clear from the Qur'aan and Hadeeth that the Companions (may Allaah be pleased with them all) were people of Imaan and Taqwa.

If a person opposes them, then Allaah سبحانه و تعالى is declaring war upon him!

Imam ash-Shawkani رحمه الله points out that the source of enmity between the Shia and the noble Companions رضي الله عنهم is the fact that the Companions رضي الله عنهم preserved the Sunnah of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. The ahaadeeth of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم provide some of the strongest arguments against the false claims of the Shia and other evil deluded groups.

Therefore, if the credibility of the Companions رضي الله عنهم can be put in doubt - as both the Shia and the Orientalists have tried to do (and failed miserably!) - the entire structure of the Sunnah can be destroyed and the door would be wide open for all these groups. [Qatr, p305]

Love for the Companions ضي الله عنهم is on account of the fact that they accompanied the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم and helped him, believed in him, boasted of him, and assisted him with their lives and property. Whoever loves them loves the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, and so love for the Companions ضي الله عنهم is a mark of love for the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, and hating them is a mark of hatred of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. [Imam Dhahabi رحمه الله, al-Kaba'ir]
