Follow the Way of the Companions – Ibn Umar

March 25th, 2009

In the Name of Allah, the Benevolent, the Merciful

It is reported by that Abd Allah ibn Umar (Allah be pleased with him) said,

“Whoever seeks to follow, let them follow the way of those who have passed away. Those were the Companions of Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him): they were the best of this Community; they had the most righteous hearts; the deepest knowledge; and were the least complicated. The were a people whom Allah chose for the company of His Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) and for the transmission of His religion. So imitate their habits and their ways–for they were the Companions of Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him), and were indeed on upright guidance, by Allah! By the Lord of the Kaaba!” [Abu Nu`aym, al-Hilya]

Do we even know about their way, their lives, their habits, their efforts, their commitments?

حلية الأولياء – (1 / 162)
حدثنا محمد بن أحمد بن محمد، حدثنا أحمد بن موسى بن إسحاق، حدثنا موسى بن سفيان، حدثنا عبد الله بن الجهم، حدثنا عمرو بن أبي قيس، عن أبي سفيان، عن عمر بن نبهان، عن الحسن، عن عبد الله بن عمر، قال: من كان مستناً فليسن. ممن قد مات، أولئك أصحاب محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم كانوا خير هذه الأمة، أبرها قلوباً، وأعمقها علماً، وأقلها تكلفاً، قوم أختارهم الله لصحبة نبيه صلى الله عليه وسلم ونقل دينه، فتشبهوا بأخلاقهم وطرائقهم فهم أصحاب محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم كانوا على الهدى المستقيم والله رب الكعبة. يا بن آدم صاحب الدنيا ببدنك وفارقها بقلبك وهمك، فإنك موقوف على عملك، فخذ مما في يديك لما بين يديك عند الموت، يأتيك الخير.
