Being A Series on the Manhaj of Salafee Da'wah Adapted from Shaykh Saeed Raslaan's Da'aaim Minhaaj an-Nubuwwah.
By: Aboo Aamir Ishaaq b. AbdirRaheem – may Allaah forgive him and his dead parents.
Ibn Mas’ood – may Allaah be pleased with him- said:
‘Whoever wants to take exemplars in people should follow those who are dead, and those are the Sahabah of the Messenger of Allaah – sallaLlaahu alahyi wa sallam – they were the best in this Ummah, they had the most pious hearts, most profound in knowledge, least in exaggeration. A people whom Allaah chose as companions for His Prophet, to transmit the Deen from him. Emulate their character and follow their paths, they were upon straight guidance.’
Shar’hus-Sunnah of Al-Baghawee [1/214] as quoted in Ad-Da’aaim p.17
