We Must Love As-sahâbat Al-kirâm Very Much
As-Sahâbat al-kirâm 'radiy-Allâhu ta'âlâ 'anhum ajma'în' sacrificed their lives and property for the sake of Rasûlullâh 'sall-Allâhu ta'âlâ 'alaihi wa sallam' and assisted him. It is incumbent (wâjib) upon us to mention the name of any of them with veneration and love. It is never permissible to say words unbecoming their greatness. It is heresy to mention their names disrespectfully.
One who loves Rasûlullah ''alaihi's-salâm' has to love all of his Companions. A hadîth-i-sherîf says, "He who loves my companions loves them because he loves me. He who does not love them does not love me. He who hurts them hurts me. And he who hurts me hurts Allâhu ta'âlâ. A person who hurts Allâhu ta'âlâ will certainly suffer torture." In another hadîth-i-sherîf he declared, "When Allâhu ta'âlâ wants to favour one of my umma, He places in his heart the love of my Companions, and he loves them dearly."
