Allaahs’ praise of the Sahaaba [Companions] is widely mentioned in The Qur’an. And their virtue and excellence is part of the creed of any Muslims. Surely we love what Allaah loves , and we give precedence to whom Allaah gave precedence. For example :
“The forerunners those who came first among the Migrators and the Helpers and those who followed them with the best. Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him and Allah has prepared for them gardens beneath which rivers flow therein forever and that is the great success.” [Suratu At-Tawbah: 100]
And The Prophet (sallahAllaahu alayhi wasallam) said :
“The best of my Ummah is my generation then those who follow them and then those who follow them.” [Saheeh Bukhari]
And there is lots more on the excellence of the companions.
Now, lets look at what the Shia rawaafidha believe of the Companions :
the destructed one -khomeini- says [in the book : al-wasiyyah siyasiya] :
‘ I completely presume that the Iranian youth -in their millions of numbers- in this current time : they are better than the people of al-Hijaaz [Makkah & Madina and sorrounding areas] during the time of The Prophet (sallahAllaahu alayhi wasallam) .!!
and they are better than the people of Koofah in Iraaq during the time of the prince of believers [Alee] , and Husayn [may Allaah be pleased with both of them] … ’
end of his words !
O Muslim, So who do you believe , Allaah and then The Prophet (sallahAllaahu alayhi wasallam) who said the Companions are the best of people, or this human devil who says such repungent words ?!
Again another clear proof that the Shia are very far from the truth.
and for you is the actual text of khomeinis words:
