Allah said about the Prophet's Companions: "And the foremost to embrace Islam of the Muhajirun and the Ansar and also those who followed them exactly (in Faith). Allah is well-pleased with them as they are wellÂ pleased with Him.And Messenger of Allah said: "My Companions are the surety of safety and when they leave this world, this Ummah will be afflicted with the Fitnah." (Muslim)According to this general rule, we should follow all the facets of the life of the Prophet's Companions so that we may attain some of their qualities. The author has compiled in a most authentic way the life history of the 18 greatest Companions of the Prophet (pbhu). We, at Darussalam, have published this valuable book in two volumes for the guidance of the Muslim Ummah especially for the young generation to follow them in every aspect of their life.Scroll Down for More Information
All praises are due to Allah, the Lord of all that exists. May Allah's peace and blessings be upon His final Prophet and Messenger, Muhammad, his family and his Companions.
Darussalam is pleased to present this valuable book, `Shining Stars among the Prophet's Companions', in two volumes. The purpose of this book is to enlighten our youth about the lives of the greatest Companions of the Prophet. Also, we wish to increase the enthusiasm of the Muslim youth for following and adhering to their religion. In this way, these books achieve two very important tasks: educating our youth and encouraging them to be good Muslims.
First volume is in your hands. You will see that the author has selected the nine top rank Companions of the Prophet (S). Although these were all given the good news of Paradise even then they played an active role in their life till the last.
They are humble, just, tender and dedicated to the support of the Prophet (S) and Islam. Their rank among the Companions was very high to the extent that the Prophet (S) told them that they were given the good news of Paradise.
In the description of the lives of the Companions, we find example for ourselves and our youth as to how they strictly followed the laws and commandments of Islam and how they loved the Prophet (S) so greatly that they did not hesitated to offer their lives and their wealth for the safety of the Prophet (S) and for Islam. They took each and every saying of the Prophet (S) and his act to be a guiding principle for their whole life. If we learn about them and try to follow them in this respect no wonder that Allah would help us and our youth with sound faith, uprightness and ease to follow their path and attain nearness to Allah.
We hope that this book is beneficial to our Muslim youth, as they are the future of Islam. We, at Darussalam realize the importance of good Islamic literature for Muslim youth, especially in the West where non-Islamic influences are so strong. For this reason, we feel that the availability of this book will be a valuable aid in instilling a genuine love for Islam in our youth. We would like to thank the author, Mr. Abdul Basit Ahmad, the editor Mr. Muhammad Ayub Sipra for their diligent work in preparing this series. As Allah says:
"Is there any reward for good other than good?" (55:60) And our final invocation is that all praises are due to Allah, the Lord of all that exists.
