Chapter 1: The virtues of the Companions of the Prophet (saws), and any Muslim who enjoyed the company of the Prophet (saws) or saw him, is regarded as one of his Companions (raa).

Narrated Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (raa) Allah’s Messenger (saws) said, “A time will come upon the people, when a group of people will fight a holy battle and it will be said, ‘Is there amongst you anyone who has enjoyed the company of Allah’s Messenger (saws)?’

They will say, ‘Yes.’ And so victory will be bestowed on them. Then a time will come upon the people when a group of people will fight a holy battle, and it will be said, ‘Is there amongst you anyone who has enjoyed the company of the Companions of Allah’s Messenger (saws)?’

They will say, ‘Yes.’ And so victory will be bestowed on them. Then a time will come upon the people when a group of people will fight a holy battle, and it will be said, ‘Is there amongst you anyone who has enjoyed the company of the companions of the Companions of Allah’s Messenger (saws)?’

They will say, ‘Yes.’ And victory will be bestowed on them.”
