(EXCELLENCE AND HONOUR OF THE SACRED FAMILY AND COMPANIONS OF THE HOLY PROPHET)
Allah has made the sacred Family of the Holy Prophet pure of every kind of filth. They are like the ark of Noah, whoever is attached to them, finds success and prosperity.
The sacred Companions of Holy Prophet are like the guiding stars. Whoever follows any of them, finds the right path. The Holy Prophet compared them with stars because in the ancient times, people searched the way through stars. Allah has granted superiority to some chosen ones upon others. Keep in mind the fact that according to Quran, whoever beheld the Holy Prophet in the state of faith is blessed with Jannah and Allah is pleased with him. One should be worried about one’s own end.
Love of the sacred Family ( Ahl-e-Bait ) and Companions of the Holy Prophet is an integral part of faith of the true Muslims. Even a minor negative feeling against them can confiscate person’s faith. In Islam, there always prevailed two groups, one of which claims to love the sacred Companions but is against the sacred Family while the other claims to love the sacred Family but keeps malice against the Companions of the Prophet. The former is called the Kharijites and the latter is called the Rafizi. Kharijites were the first people who separated from the Muslim ummah. Fight between the two groups created disintegration among the ummah. May Allah unite the Muslim ummah upon the right faith.
Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman has discussed the excellence and honour of the sacred Family ( Ahl-e-Bait ) and Companions of the Prophet in the light of Quran and Hadith in detail for those who want to know the truth and search the right path. He has just quoted the references from Quran and Hadith and has not added a word from his own. This book purifies the hearts of the sagacious ones related to all sects of Islam and walks of life from every kind of spite and malice and softens them for the love of sacred Family and Companions. Hence, makes it possible for a true Momin to travel upon the spiritual path to the gnosis and union of Allah easily.
