"The best people are those of my generation, and then those who will come after them …" (Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim)
The Qur'an reveals to us that our beloved Prophet Muhammad S.A.W is our definitive guide on how to conduct our daily lives according to our original purpose. The Hadith above further suggests that the next source of guidance for us is none other than the Companions of the Prophet S.A.W, followed by the Tabi'un, pious people who, like us, never met the Prophet S.A.W but nonetheless manifested his sacred teachings and embodied his spirit to the best of their knowledge and capabilities. This book focuses on the lives of those who followed the best of generations. Using authentic sources, it shares anecdotes about their lives, emphasizing their personalities, habits of worship, decision-making, social interactions, simplistic lifestyles, and above all, their love for and obedience to Allah and His Messenger.
