The companions are considered the best generation of the Islamic nation, both then and now. We learn about their etiquettes and manners, we read their stories and marvel at their exploits; we admire their religious zeal and their utter devotion to Allah and His Messenger. The companions came from all different walks of life exactly as you would find in a small town today.
