Why do we love the companions of Muhammad (saw) so much?
Because today, we grow up living in a time where Islam is firmly established. We grow up knowing Islam already exists, and know that people all around the world are devoted to this belief. We come into this world with Masjids already built, sacrifices already made, history already past and Muslims who are existent with support.
But the time of Muhammad (saw)?
Those sahabah who believed in him, believed in a time when there was no such thing. It was brand new. And the limits they went to, the courage that they had, the love in their hearts; is something impeccable. It’s amazing. Especially given the time/place it happened.
We think it’s hard to be Muslim with all the Kafir we’re surrounded by, despite the fact that the Muslim ummah and community is massive. What about them? Imagine being one of the only 2, one of the only 3? One of the only 4? One of the one 10? One of the only 20? IN THE WORLD. Not in the “School” or “Work place” or “town”. In the WORLD.
And today what we have is because of THEM. Muhammad (saw), Khadija, Abu Bakr, Ali, Uthman, Umar. Subhan’Allah. Words limit what they deserve to be given in terms of gratitude.
