Sahaabah were the companions of Prophet Muhammad (saas). They
are described in glowing terms by the Prophet (saas) as the
following hadith from Sahih Muslim shows: Book
30, Number 6159
Aisha: A person asked Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him)
as to who amongst the people were the best. He said: Of the
generation to which I belong, then of the second generation
(generation adjacent to my generation), then of the third generation
(generation adjacent to the second generation).
Below is a partial list of some of the companions of the Prophet
(saas). Their lives remain a source of inspiration for the later
generations of Muslims, including today's. May Allah be pleased
with all of them.
