Shi'asm (3)

The Qur’aan Majeed and Mubaarak Ahaadith are replete with the praises of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum). In the Qur’aan Majeed, Allah Ta‘ala praised them to such an extent that Allah Ta‘ala made their Imaan the benchmark of success. Allah Ta‘ala says:

فَاِنۡ اٰمَنُوۡا بِمِثۡلِ مَاۤ اٰمَنۡتُمۡ بِہٖ فَقَدِ اہۡتَدَوۡا ۚ

So if they (the people) believe as you (O Sahaabah) have believed, then indeed they are on the right path.

In many places of the Qur’aan Majeed, Allah Ta‘ala has declared His Divine pleasure and happiness with the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) by saying رضي الله عنهم ورضوا عنه (Allah Ta‘ala is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him). This honour of receiving the Divine pleasure of Allah Ta‘ala, which the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) had received in this very world, is the honour which the people of Jannah will receive after entering Jannah.

The distinguishing characteristic of Islam, compared to all other religions of the past, is the aspect of authenticity and reliability. Every detail of Islam has been accurately and precisely preserved from the very inception of wahi (revelation) up to this day.

Fourteen centuries have passed, yet the Holy Qur’aan has remained to this day in its original form without the minutest alteration. Let alone a verse of the Qur’aan Majeed, not even a single letter has been distorted or changed. Furthermore, its preservation is not limited to the scrolls and pages; instead it is securely safeguarded in the recesses of the hearts of even little children of this ummah, and this preservation will remain until Qiyaamah.

How could it not be so, when Allah Ta‘ala Himself has taken the divine onus and responsibility of protecting and preserving the Shari‘ah of Islam till the end of time? Allah Ta‘ala states:

اِنَّا نَحۡنُ نَزَّلۡنَا الذِّکۡرَ وَ اِنَّا لَہٗ لَحٰفِظُوۡنَ ﴿۹﴾

Indeed We are the Ones who have sent down the Zikr (the Qur’aan Majeed), and We will surely protect it. (Surah Hijr v. 9)

In every era of human history, Allah Ta‘ala sent two sources of guidance for the reformation of mankind. The first source was the divine revelation of Allah Ta‘ala (i.e. the heavenly books and scriptures), and the second was the men of Allah Ta‘ala (the Ambiyaa ‘alaihimus salaam).

The Ambiyaa (‘alaihis salaam) were sent in order to practically demonstrate before people the correct application of the laws of Shari‘ah through their noble example. Furthermore, it was the divine system of Allah Ta‘ala that He selected companions from among the Ummah of every Nabi in order to support them in accomplishing the mission of Nubuwwat. From among the ummah of Hazrat Nabi-e-Kareem (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), those who were divinely chosen by Allah Ta‘ala were none other than the illustrious Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).
