Our Obligation Concerning The Companions By Shaykh Abdur Razzaaq al Badr
The topic of this discussion is entitled “Our obligation concerning the noble companions” (May Allāh be pleased with them); which is an enormous duty and a great demand (by Islām) that is fitting for us all to peek our interest and devote the utmost concern. The honored reader should also know that our obligation to the companions is a part of our obligation to our religion is a part of our obligation to our religion; the religion of Islām which Allāh has approved for His servants. No other religion besides it will not be accepted from them as Allāh says,“Truly, the religion with Allāh is Islām.” [Sūrah ʿAli ʿImrān 3:19]Likewise, Allāh says,“And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter, he will be one of the losers.” [Sūrah ʿAli ʿImrān 3:85]And Allāh says, “This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favor upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.” [Sūrah al-Mā’idah 5:3]This true religion and straight path are the religion of Allāh (The Mighty & Majestic). Allāh selected a trustworthy Messenger; one who is a sincere advisor and wise; an honored Messenger who is Muḥammad (May Allāh elevate his rank & grant him peace).He conveyed this religion in a complete manner, explained it fully; and established what His Lord (The Blessed & Exalted) ordered in the most perfect aspect.
