In the Name of Allah The most Gracious The Most Merciful
The Prophets have the highest position from amongst the creation. They have been chosen by Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala and have many degrees over anyone else. They fought through trials and tribulations for the sake of Allah. Many of them killed for spreading the truth and tawheed of Allah. Many endured mental and physical abuse from amongst their people and own family in order to please their Lord in hopes of meeting Him and obeying Him. After the Prophets we have the companions of the Prophet. They have a degree over all of us and the ones born after them. They too went through and endured torture, war, criticism and oppression to aid the Prophet in spreading the word of Allah and His religion that he bestowed upon His creation. The one who degrades or speaks ill of them deprives and degrades themselves and shows lack of knowledge, understanding and guidance. The knowledge of their character, behavior and struggles should be narrated in order to serve as a reminder to us on their greatness and inspire us to become better muslims.
