Introduction:

The high status of the Companions of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is well known, for they are the most pure hearted of this nation, the most knowledgeable, the least pretentious, and the most rightly guided, and in the best state. They are a people whom Allah chose to be the Companions of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and to establish the religion.
Allah has praised them in many verses, such as His statement (which means):

«And the first forerunners [in the faith] among the Muhaajiroon and the Ansaar and those who followed them with 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.»

[Quran: 9:100]

The Companions of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, had different ranks, as Ibn Taymiyyah (a scholar) said: “The word Sahaabah (Companions) is a name that indicates anyone who accompanied the Prophet of Allah, whether for a short or long time. So every one of them has a companionship accordingly, so whoever accompanied him for one year, or a month, or an hour, or simply saw him while believing in him, has a level of companionship according to that (length of time).” Our topic here will be the conduct of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, with his close Companions who were constantly around him. The most famous of them are names like Abu Bakr, ‘Umar, ‘Uthmaan, ‘Ali, Zubayr, ‘Abdullaah ibn Mas’ood, Huthayfah ibn Al-Yamaan,and ‘Abdur-Rahmaan ibn ‘Awf. The closest of all of them to the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, were Abu Bakr and ‘Umar.

As ‘Ali said:

“I used to constantly hear the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, say: ‘I went with Abu Bakr and ‘Umar, I entered with Abu Bakr and ‘Umar, I left with Abu Bakr and ‘Umar.’”
