From the Heart To the Heart — A Letter to the Seekers of Truth from among the Shiahs


From the Heart To the Heart — A Letter to the Seekers of Truth from among the Shiahs

The below extract is from the letter which was written by Shaykh Uthman Al khamees(hafidhullah). Which is titled as, “From the Heart To the Heart — A Letter to the Seekers of Truth from among the Shiahs”. The letter had many interesting chapters in it, but we found one chapter to be the most important one, thus we are going to present that before our readers. The letter had many interesting chapters in it, but we here we would be presenting one of them, which deals with companions of Prophet(saw) and the Shiah.

The Companions of the Messenger of Allah
[Blessings of Allah and Peace upon him]

Brothers and Sisters …

The scholars of the Shia and their preachers portrayed to the people that those who were gathered around our Prophet [Blessings and Peace of Allah be upon him and his household] were no more than a bunch of hypocrites and liars; [hypocrites] who only agreed with him externally for the sake of the Dunia, but in reality opposed and disagreed with him internally.

The scholars of the Shiah portrayed, to the people that the Prophet [Blessings and Peace of Allah be upon him and his household] carried animosity in his heart towards these companions and hated their companionship.

… That he feared to proclaim what he was commanded of Truth in front of them, in regards to Ali being the Wasi after him.

… That the Prophet [Blessings and Peace of Allah be upon him and his household] used to curse these companions, day and night.

… That the Quran used to be revealed to the Prophet [Blessings and Peace of Allah be upon him and his household] cursing them, and that they are the ones being referred to as al-Mujrimoun(Criminals) in the Quran, and that they are the Munafiqoun(Hypocrites) the Kafiroun(Disbelievers) and Fasiqoun(Defiantly disobedient), rather they are the ones intended with Al-Fahsha’, Al-Munkar, and Al-Baghi(Immorality, Bad conduct, and Oppression (refer to Al-Nahl 16:90).

… That there did not come any blame or defamation in the Quran except that the companions were the ones intended by it, nor a curse except that it was meant to be upon them.

By doing so, they portrayed our Prophet [Blessings and Peace of Allah be upon him and his household] in the worst of pictures; they portrayed him as someone who is mute in the face of injustice and transgression, rather also [mute in front of what he sees of their] crimes and disbelief.

Do you know -May Allah grant me and you success towards what He loves and what pleases Him- who are these companions [they speak of]?

They are the ones who followed the Prophet [Blessings of Allah and Peace upon him and his household] when he was alone. They are the ones who spent their lives and wealth to support him and support the Religion of Islam.

They are the ones who fought against their closest relatives to raise the Word of Allah.

They competed in all the fields of goodness, until Allah the Exalted declared His pleasure with them and clearly praised them in His Book.

He [the Most Exalted and High] said: {Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah; and those with him are forceful against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating [in prayer], seeking bounty from Allah and [His] pleasure. Their mark is on their faces from the trace of prostration. That is their description in the Torah. And their description in the Gospel is as a plant which produces its offshoots and strengthens them so they grow firm and stand upon their stalks, delighting the sowers – so that Allah may enrage by them the disbelievers. Allah has promised those who believe and do righteous deeds among them forgiveness and a great reward}(Surah Al-Fath 48:29).

Contemplate [May Allah preserve you] on what Allah said [about them]: [that they are] {seeking bounty from Allah and [His] pleasure}, and you will see that here Allah [the all Mighty] is speaking about a matter that is internal, that is unseen, that is within their hearts.

Notice also what He said: {so that Allah may enrage by them the disbelievers}, so it is the disbelievers who are enraged by them, and they are the ones that hate them. So be cautious [May Allah guide us and you to the straight path] from being from among those who hate them.

And He [Ta’ala] said of them: {Certainly was Allah pleased with the believers when they pledged allegiance to you, [O Muhammad], under the tree, and He knew what was in their hearts, so He sent down tranquility upon them and rewarded them with an imminent conquest}(Surah Al-Fath 48:18)

Notice [May Allah bless you] the Words of Allah the All Knowing: {He knew what was in their hearts} i.e. He knew what was in their hearts from Faith, Piety, Honesty, Love and for that He rewarded them by sending: {tranquility upon them and rewarded them with an imminent conquest}.

Would we need to go over the whole Quran, contemplating upon its verses, time and time again until we know Truth from Falsehood … Subhan Allah! …

Didn’t we read what Allah [Glorified is He] said: {For the poor emigrants (Muhajireen) who were expelled from their homes and their properties, seeking bounty from Allah and [His] approval and supporting Allah and His Messenger, [there is also a share]. Those are the truthful}(Surah Al-Hasher 59:8).

Who are these [who attained this great virtue] except the Muhajireen, and on their heads are: Abu Bakr, ‘Umar, ‘Uthman, Ali, Talha, Al-Zubair, ‘Abdulrahman b. ‘Awf, Abu ‘Ubaida, Sa’d b. Abi Waqas, Sa’eed b. Zaid, ‘Amar b. Yasser, Salman Al-Farisi, Suhaib Al-Rumi, Abu Zar, etc [May Allah be pleased with them all].

After this verse He [Glorified is He] said: {And [also for] those who were settled in al-Madīnah and Iman before them. They love those who emigrated to them and find not any want in their breasts of what the emigrants were given but give [them] preference over themselves, even though they are in privation. And whoever is protected from the stinginess of his soul – it is those who will be the successful}(Surah Al-Hasher 59:9).

Tell me by Allah, who [is Allah speaking about here] except the Ansaar, and on their heads are Sa’d b. ‘Ubada, Sa’d b. Muaz, Mu’az b. Jabal, Ubi b. Ka’b, ‘Ubada b. Al-Samet, ‘Amr b. Al-Jamouh, Usayd b. Hudair, Anas b. Malik, Jaber b. ‘Abdillah, Zaid b. Thabet, etc [May Allah be pleased with them all].

Indeed, it was them …

Then Allah [the Exalted], after these two verse, said the following: {And [there is a share for] those who came after them, saying, “Our Lord, forgive us and our brothers who preceded us in faith and put not in our hearts [any] resentment toward those who have believed. Our Lord, indeed You are Kind and Merciful}(Surah Al-Hasher 59:10).

So I ask, are we from among those?

And the answer is: yes we are, if we say as our Lord has ordered us: Our Lord, forgive us and our brothers who preceded us in faith. In addition to this] we should not have in our hearts [any] resentment toward them.

I say … Subhan Allah … Subhan Allah … and Subhan Allah …

How can the hearts of the Shiahs hold no resentment towards the Muhajireen and Ansar when they do not hear on their Minbars (pulpits) and in their tapes, nor do they read in their books, except curses towards the companions of the Messenger of Allah, coming from their scholars and preachers.

Are you like that?! Do you curse them? Do you slander them? Do you find in your hearts resentment toward them?

I say to you, beware and then beware [of such a matter] …

Is it rational that those whom Allah [Gloried is He] praised with all this praise, turned their backs afterwards on Islam, with the exception of a small minority from amongst them, as was reported in Al-Kafi regarding which Al-Mufeed (a Shiah scholar) said: “… is from the most revered books of the Shi’ah and the most beneficial” (Muqaddimah 26)]:

“All the people rejected Islam (became apostates) after the death of the Prophet [Blessings of Allah on him and his household] except three. Al-Baqir was asked: Who were [these three]? He said: Al-Miqdad, Abu Zar, and Salman.( Al-Majlisi classed this tradition as: Hasan or Mawthuq in his book “Miraat Al-‘Uqool” Volume 26 p. 213 tradition # 341)

[How can it be] rational that the Prophet’s companions who accompanied him for 23 years, specifically those who were very close to him such as Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, Talha, Al-Zubair, Abu Ubaida, Sa’d, and all the others, did not benefit from the Prophet’s teachings and guidance?!

All that effort which the Messenger of Allah [Blessings and Peace of Allah be upon him and his household] exerted, was gone with the wind [after his Death!].

That they sold their Belief and sold their Religion for the sake of money and authority?!

Tell me then, who was it who paid them this claimed money? Who was it that received it? Where did this money go? … Nobody knows.

A strange matter indeed …

Think, my brothers and sisters, about how these companions used to fight and join in Jihad alongside the Prophet [Blessings and Peace of Allah be upon him and his household], [think of] their patience alongside him, and think how they spent the precious and the valuable for the sake of Allah.

Now contemplate upon what the All-Mighty said: {It is He who has sent among the unlettered a Messenger from themselves reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom}(Surah Al-Jumu’ah 62:2). Let us pause at the word of our Lord {and purifying them}, and let’s ask ourselves: Did he succeed in purifying them?

These attacks on the companions of the Messenger of Allah [Blessings of Allah and Peace upon him and his household] is in reality a direct attack on the Prophet [Blessings of Allah and Peace upon him and his household], whether you see that or not, rather it is an attack on Allah the all-Mighty.

My brother and sisters …

The enemies of this Religion are finding that the most fertile field to attack our religion is this field; that is because they claim that the principles of Islam [and its foundations] are [not practical and are] nothing more than ink on paper. [They claim that such principles] can never be implemented in reality. [They say:] if the Prophet [Blessings of Allah and Peace upon him and his household] was incapable of implementing it among his closest companions, and failed to [even] purify them, then with whom can such a Religion succeed?!

My brother and sisters …

Did not Allah say of the companions on the day of Badr: {[Remember] when He overwhelmed you with drowsiness [giving] security from Him and sent down upon you from the sky, rain by which to purify you (Yutahirkum) and remove from you the evil (Rijs) of Satan and to make steadfast your hearts and plant firmly thereby your feet}(Surah Al-Anfal 8:11).

Let us contemplate on the meaning of Purification and the removal of the Rijs, and let’s also not forget to compare this with what Allah said elsewhere: {Allah intends only to remove from you the Rijs (impurity [of sin]), O people of the [Prophet’s] household, and Yutahirakum (to purify) you with [extensive] purification}(Surah Al-Ahzab 33:33)

Brothers and Sisters …

I ask you to contemplate and compare between what Allah [the Exalted] described during the Day of Ahzab between the stance of the Believers and the stance of the hypocrites.

Allah started by describing the [difficulty that was present during the] day of Ahzab saying: {O you who have believed, remember the favor of Allah upon you when armies came to [attack] you and We sent upon them a wind and armies [of angels] you did not see. And ever is Allah, of what you do, Seeing * [Remember] when they came at you from above you and from below you, and when eyes shifted [in fear], and hearts reached the throats and you assumed about Allah [various] assumptions * There the believers were tested and shaken with a severe shaking}(Surah Al-Ahzab 33:9-11).

As for the Hypocrites, Allah said of them: {And [remember] when the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is disease said, “Allah and His Messenger did not promise us except delusion”}( Surah Al-Ahzab 33:12).

As for the Believers from among the Muhajireen and the Ansar, Allah said of them: {And when the believers saw the companies, they said, “This is what Allah and His Messenger had promised us, and Allah and His Messenger spoke the truth”. And it increased them only in faith and acceptance. * Among the believers are men true to what they promised Allah. Among them is he who has fulfilled his vow [to the death], and among them is he who awaits [his chance]. And they did not alter [the terms of their commitment] by any alteration}(Surah Al-Ahzab 33:22-23).

Allah [the Exalted, the All-Knowing] is telling us that these companions {did not alter by any alteration}, while the scholars of the Shia are saying of them that they altered.

Whom shall we believe?!

In the Battle of Tabouk in the 9th year of Hijra, Allah said about them: {Allah has already forgiven the Prophet and the Muhājireen and the Ansar who followed him in the hour of difficulty after the hearts of a party of them had almost inclined [to doubt], and then He forgave them. Indeed, He was to them Kind and Merciful}(Surah At-Tawbah 9:117).

By Allah’s [right] over you, contemplate and think … People that believed in the Messenger of Allah [Blessings of Allah and Peace upon him and his household] when the others disbelieved … they defended him and withstood harm along his side … they supported him in all his Battles till all the people united against them … they faced death in their wars against Caesar, Kisra(Title of the Kings of the Persian empire), and others …

How [is it even conceivable] that these people, after all this, would sell their Religion and sell their Jihad, and give the Pledge to Abu Bakr, betraying Ali, when Abu Bakr had no [powerful] clan [to support him], nor did he have wealth [with which he could bribe them with], nor did give the people any promises that would attract them to himself, neither did he threaten them in any way …

Why then would they give him the Khilafa, and disobey the Messenger of Allah [Blessings of Allah and Peace upon him and his household], and not give the pledge to Ali?!!

What would cause them [after their years of struggle and Jihad for the sake of Allah] to sell their Religion? Why would they do such a thing for the sake of someone else’s Dunia?!

As if that wasn’t enough, the scholars of the Shia would also have us believe that these people after the murder of ‘Uthman, [suddenly decided to] join Ali and fight under his banner!

What caused them to change?!

Nobody knows.

Do they want us to believe that Ali and Fatima walked around to the Muhajireen and the Ansar, after the death of the Messenger of Allah [Blessings of Allah and Peace upon him and his household] demanding the Khilafa for Ali, only to have no one stand by their side, neither did they find anyone to support him, rather they denied him his right, and [years later] after the death of ‘Uthman [they suddenly remembered] and rushed to give the pledge to Ali!! What was it that [led to this change] I wonder?!

Truly, a matter both unconceivable and unsupported by evidence

After this introduction [that we have given] in clarifying the status of the companions of the Messenger of Allah [Blessings of Allah and peace upon him and his household], let us listen to what [some of] the Shiah scholars said regarding them:

Here we have an esteemed Shia scholar Ni’mat Allah Al-Jazaeri who said that the Majority of the companions where upon Hypocrisy, however that fire of hypocrisy was hidden in the time of the Prophet –Blessings of Allah and Peace upon him-, but after he passed away, this fire of hypocrisy became apparent towards his Wasi, and they turned their [backs]. Refer to “Al-Anwar Al-Nu’maniyah”, first volume p. 81.

As for another high ranking Shia scholar Al-Majlisi, he said: There is no room for any reasonable person to doubt the Kufr (Apostasy) of ‘Umar, Fa La’nat (then May the curse of) Allah and His Messenger be upon him (i.e. ‘Umar), and upon all those who consider him a Muslim, and upon all those who abstain from cursing him. (He said this in “Jala’ Al-‘Uyoun” p. 45)

In “Diyaa’ Al-Saliheen” p. 513 the author Muhammad Saleh al-Jawhari said:
أن من يلعن أبابكر وعمر في الصباح لم يُكتب عليه ذنب حتى يمسي، ومن لعنهما في المساء لم يكتب عليه ذنب حتى يصبح
 Whoever curses Abu Bakr and Umar every morning, no sin would be written on him until evening, and whoever curses them in the evening, no sin will be recorded on him until the morning.

As for Al-Tuysrkani, he says in “La’ale’ Al-Akhbar” Volume 4 p. 92:
قال محمد نبي التوسيركاني -الملقب عند الشيعة بعمدة العلماء والمحققين- في (كتابه لآلئ الأخبار) ما نصه: “اعلم أن أشرف الأمكنة والأوقات والحالات وأنسبها للعن عليهم ـ عليهم اللعنة ـ إذا كنت في المبال فقل عند كل واحد من التخلية والاستبراء والتطهير مرارًا بفراغ من البال. اللهم العن عمر ثم أبا بكر وعمر ثم عثمان وعمر ثم معاوية وعمر ثم يزيد وعمر ثم ابن زياد وعمر ثم ابن سعد وعمر. اللهم العن عائشة وحفصة وهندًا وأم الحكم والعن من رضى بأفعالهم إلى يوم القيامة”.
(Know that the most noble places, times, and situations which are most suitable to curse them is in the Urinal -yes, you read it correctly: in the place where you relive yourself, during urinating, and we seek refuge in Allah-. Say during each time of reliving [yourself], Istibraa, and Tat-heer repetitively with a clear mind: O Allah, curse ‘Umar and then Abu Bakr, and ‘Umar and then ‘Uthman, and ‘Umar and then Mu’awiya, and ‘Umar and then Yazeed, and ‘Umar and then Ibn Ziyad, and ‘Umar and then Ibn Sa’d, and ‘Umar. O Allah, curse Aisha, Hafsa, Hind, Umm Al-Hakam, and curse whoever was pleased with their actions until the Day of Judgment).

Is this a Religion? Is this something that Jews and Christians say? By Allah who there is no God except Him, we have not heard such a thing from them, neither have we read it in their books.

And this is [what] Al-Khomeini is saying about Abu Bakr and Umar(Source of both Khomeini is “Kashf al-Asraar”):
إن مثل هؤلاء الأفراد الجهال الحمقى والأفاقون والجائرون غير جديرين بأن يكونوا في موضع الإمامة وأن يكونوا ضمن أولي الأمر
And these individuals of ignorance, idiocy, and transgression are not worthy of being in the position of Imamah.

He also said: … and the reality is that they did not give the Messenger his due right and status. The Messenger who exerted himself, and bore the afflictions for the sake of directing and guiding them, and [ended up] closing his eyes (i.e. dying) and in his ears are the words of the son of Khatab which were built on accusations derived from deeds of Kufr and Heresy.

On a related note, tell me, did you hear the poem of Yaseen Al-Sawaf on the occasion of the Eid(Celebration) of the killing of Umar … Yes, [you read it correctly] the Eid/Feast of the Killing of Umar … he says:

O Friend awaken, this is the Eid of Fatima *
The Eid of Happiness resulting from the puncture of the stomach of Umar.

A day in which Iblees screamed in the time of forenoon *
In a gathering of the deviants of both Jinn and Humans

On this Day the Head of the Deviants has died, who has *
… led the Devils from both the Jinn and Humans.

Firouz, May those arms of yours never go paralyzed, for *
you have Killed Ghundar, what joy have you received by that triumph

Tyranny and aggression were not established except by Abu *
Bakr, just like injustice was not established except by Umar

I ask of Allah, my Lord, to grant me *
To see the two cursed, with my own eyes in a clear sight

When they are dug out, as the Prophet told us, *
After their burial in the covering of the grave

After which they would be crucified on branches of wood *
And burned, a matter there is no doubt in or rejection

{Note: Firouz is the name of Abu Lu’Lu’a Al-Majousi [May Allah’s continuous curses be upon him until the day of Judgement], name sometimes written as Pirouz Nahavandi. He is the killer of ‘Umar ibn Al-Khatab [May Allah be pleased with him].}
These are just a few verses from this poem which I took from the book: “Aqd Al-Durar fee Baqr Batn Umar”. The whole poem is over 135 verses.

Do you know Abu Lu’lu’a? He is the Magus that killed Umar ibn Al-Khattab …

That Majoosi, today, has a grave and a shrine in the city of Kashan which is being visited …

Al-Ghreefi said in the introduction of the book “Aqd Al-Durar”:
إن قاتل الخليفة الثاني هو أبو لؤلؤة فيروز وإنه وإن كان على أي مذهب أو ملة أو دين فإنه مستحق للرحمة لما تحقق من دعاء الصديقة الزهراء عليه ببقر البطن
The killer of the second Caliph is Abu Lu’Luah Firouz, and even if he was upon any Mazhab or Sect or Religion he is still deserving of mercy due to the fulfillment of the supplication of the Siddiqah Al-Zahra’ [Fatima] on him (i.e. Umar) by having his stomach punctured. It also necessitates visiting the shrine attributed to him (i.e. in the city of Kashan), out of hope that it is for him. It is [also] appropriate when visiting him to ask for mercy and forgiveness to be upon him for the honor of what he has done.
His saying “out of hope that it is for him” since it would be expected that he is buried in Medina, or somewhere close to where he was killed, and not in Kashan. However, they say that he reached Kashan when Ali threw his grave over there, or through some other [strange] mean they came up with.

Al-Karki(Ali b. Hilal al-Karki died 984 H) says:
إن من لم يجد في قلبه عداوة لعثمان ولم يستحل عرضه ولم يعتقد كفره فهو عدو لله ورسوله ، كافر بما أنزل الله
Whoever does not find in his heart animosity towards ‘Uthman, and does not deem permissible attacks on his honor, and does not believe that he is a Kaffir, then he is an enemy of Allah and His Messenger, a disbeliever in what Allah revealed. (He said this in Nafahaat Al-Lahout under the biography of ‘Uthman).
Rather the Mothers of the Believers were not even safe from such attacks.

You find in the exegesis of what Allah [the Exalted] said [in the Quran]: {Allah presents an example of those who disbelieved: the wife of Noah and the wife of Lot. They were under two of Our righteous servants but betrayed them, so those prophets did not avail them from Allah at all, and it was said, “Enter the Fire with those who enter} (Surah Al-Tahreem 66:10).

Al-Qumi said in his Tafseer: By Allah, He did not mean by His Words {but betrayed them} except the unlawful [sexual] relationship. And the Haad (Islamic punishment) is to be applied on ‘Aisha, for what she did on the road to Basra, and Talha was in love with her. So when she decided to set for Basra, she was told by so-and-so, it is not permissible for you to travel except with a Mahram, so she gave herself in marriage to Talha.

And here we find Rajab Al-Bursi saying about ‘Aisha [May Allah be pleased with her]:
جمعت أربعين دينارا من خيانة وفرقتها على مبغضي علي
‘Aisha had collected 40 Dinars from betrayals (unlawful sexual relationship), which she then distributed among the haters of Ali. (Mashariq Al-Anwar p. 86).

 
Al-Imam Abu Zur’ah Al-Razi [May Allah shower him with Mercy], a [Sunni] scholar of the 3rd Hijri century, said: If you see a man attacking any one of the companions of the Messenger of Allah (Blessings of Allah and Peace upon him), then know that he is a heretic (Zindeeq). That is because the Quran is true, and the Messenger is true, and what he brought is true, and no one conveyed all of that to us but the Companions. So whoever attacks them means in effect to say that the Quran and Sunnah are false, thus it is more appropriate that such should be defamed and criticized and ruled as Heretics (Zanadiqah). (Al-Kifayah by Al-Khatib p. 49)

This is the essence of this matter, these slanders and attacks are not intended for the companions of the Messenger themselves, rather this is in reality an attack and slander on our Religion altogether.

My brothers and sisters …

I say these words hoping to see a light, even if dim, coming from a distance … Light carried by people in search of the Truth.

I would like to end this Pause with this thought:

Beware where you are being dragged to … People who were highly praised by Allah in His Book … By the Messenger in his Sunnah … By the Scholars of Ahl Al-Bayt in their words [and teachings].

Add to this what is known of their Jihad with the Messenger of Allah [Blessings of Allah and Peace upon him and his household], and their fights against the Apostates … Their opening of States and Lands, and their spreading of Islam.

The Messenger of Allah [Blessings of Allah and Peace upon him and his household] gave his daughters in marriage to them, and married from them. This was also done by the Imams of Ahl-Al-Bayt as we will soon point out, by the Will of Allah.

Their virtue was attested to by those close and those far, by both Muslims and non-Muslims alike … are we to leave all this and take the words of Al-Majlisi, Al-Jazaeri, Al-Tabrasi, Al-Khomeini, and their likes, who [instead] defend those who say the Quran was subject to Tahreef, and some of them, if not all, even hold this view themselves … and Praise what the Tatar did to the Muslims!

Tell me, O Shiite, Do you accept to be appointed as a Judge during the Caliphate of ‘Umar? Tell me, would you give him your daughter in Marriage? Would you name your son after him?

All these things were done by our master and your master Ali.

Let me ask you, do you slander Fir’awn? Do you slander Hamaan? Did you slander [and insult] Abu Jahl in the manner you insult ‘Umar and Abu Bakr?

Don’t you see that you are being set up and dragged towards a pit? Do you believe that the Hypocrites were the closest of people to the Messenger of Allah [Blessings of Allah and Peace upon him and his household], [so close that] he married from them, and gave his daughters in marriage to them? Do you believe that the Messenger of Allah [Blessings of Allah and Peace upon him and his household] would migrate [to Medina], hiding from the Mushriks [of Mecca] and would take with him [on his journey] the head of hypocrisy?! Would any sane person do such a thing?!

How then would we accept such an action from the Messenger of Allah [Blessings of Allah and Peace upon him and his household]?

Had Abu Bakr been a hypocrite, wouldn’t it have been possible for him to scream … to cough … to sneeze, so that the Disbelievers in search of the Messenger of Allah [Blessings of Allah and Peace upon him and his household], would know of the Messenger’s hiding place?

Where are we from what Allah [the Most High] said: {If you do not aid the Prophet – Allah has already aided him when those who disbelieved had driven him out [of Makkah] as one of two, when they were in the cave and he said to his companion, “Do not grieve; indeed Allah is with us”}( Surah Al-Tawbah 9:40).

Finally, I tell you, let us read and repeat what Allah said: {And the first forerunners [in the faith] among the Muhajireen and the Ansar, and those who followed them with Ihsan (good conduct) – Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him, and He has prepared for them gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide forever. That is the great attainment}( Surah Al-Tawbah 9:100).

So [Allah mentions] the first forerunners in faith from the Muhajireen and the Ansar, and He [Exalted is He] left no one out. Then He said: {and those who followed them}, but conditioned it with: following them {with Ihsan}. As for them (i.e. Muhajireen and the Ansar), no such condition was given since they were all people of Ihsan [and good conduct].

The love of the companions and the kin [of the Messenger] is a Sunnah *
With which I will meet my Lord when He resurrects me

Constantly fear the Punishment of Allah and Hope for His Mercy, *
Until it seems that you are one with two Hearts.
