The Companions (رِضْوَانُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِمْ اَجْمَعِیْن) are the followers of the Holy Prophet and are those great personalities of the world, who are superior to and greater than anyone except the Prophets of Almighty Allah .By their success they obtained the blessings of Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) and His Holy Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ). When we read the life-style of the Holy Companions (رِضْوَانُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِمْ اَجْمَعِیْن), we feel privileged to follow their foot-steps. We feel necessary to be complete in our trust and to build the faith of Islam and we also believe that if had not Allah created those tremendous people; our religion would not have come to us in its perfect formation. Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) had deputed those noble Companions of our Holy Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) to safeguard our religion; it is the lives of these mentors which serve as the best models for us.

Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ praised, in many versus of the Holy Quran, the Companions who loved, executed, and followed the Messenger (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) without personal desire and without objection or egotism, and only wanting the embrace of Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) and His Messenger(صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ); those Companions(رِضْوَانُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِمْ اَجْمَعِیْن) have satisfied Allah(عَزَّوَجَلَّ) and He delighted them, and that is the way for those who fear Allah(عَزَّوَجَلَّ). The meaning of “Sahabah” Companions is all those Male & Female Muslims who met face to face with our holy Prophet Muhammad صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ and died as a Muslim. The perfect model of following and loving Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) and Allah’s Messenger (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) was demonstrated by the Companions of the Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ). These groups of the Companions (رِضْوَانُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِمْ اَجْمَعِیْن) are admired by the Muslims because of their belief towards the Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) and their works with him, therefore they are admired and respected by all Muslims, and they are very well regarded as people mention their names with prestige.
