Indeed the Prophet (S) fulfilled his duty of conveying the Message in the most complete and perfect of manners – he directed his Ummah towards every good, and he warned them against every evil.
Allâh chose for accompanying him and taking knowledge from him a people who are the best of this nation, which is itself the best of all nations. Allâh honored them by allowing them to ac-company His Prophet (S). He favored them in this worldly life by giving them the opportunity to see him and hear his hadîth directly from his noble mouth.
This is the bounty of Allâh which He bestows upon whom He wills, and Allâh possesses the greatest of bounties.
Indeed the Companions conveyed from Allâh’s Messenger (S) that which he was sent with from guidance in the most complete and perfect form. They will have the greatest of rewards due to their companionship of Allâh’s Messenger (S), their fighting in Jihâd along his side, and their noble actions in spreading Islâm.
And they will also accumulate the rewards of those who come after them since they served as the intermediaries between them and Allâh’s Messenger (S).
