The Sahaaba


Allah Ta’ala has praised the Sahaaba (R.A.) in various verses of the Qur’an. They have been blessed with the glad tidings of having received the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala while they walked on the surface of this earth. Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) also showered great praise on the Sahaaba (R.A.) and warned against reviling them. Hence it is reported in a Hadith that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “When you see those who revile my Sahaaba     (R.A.), say to them: “May the curse of Allah be upon your evil action” (Mishkaat).

     However, the Shia harbour great hatred for most of the Sahaaba (R.A.). Muhammad Ya’qoob bin Kulaini is among the most highly ranked scholars of Hadith among the Shia. He attributes the following to Imam Baqir regarding the beloved companions of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam): “After the demise of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) all the companions became murtad (gave up Islam) except Miqdaad bin Awad (R.A.), Abu Zar Ghifari (R.A.) and Salmaan Farsi (R.A.)” (Furu’ul Kaafi, Kitabul Rawdah, pg.115).


The Qur’an categorically declares Hazrath Abu Bakr (R.A.) to be the Sahabi of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). However, another very highly revered scholar of the Shia, Mullah Baqir Majlisi writes the following regarding the greatest personality of the Ummah: “After every salaah one should say: “O Allah curse Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthmaan, Aisha and Hafsa” (Ainul Hayaat, pg.599).
May Allah Ta’ala save us from the evil of those who hate the Sahaaba (R.A.).
