The prohibition of cursing the Sahabah and the dreadful consequences thereof by Hafiz Diyaʼ al-Din al-Maqdisi

What great foresight was Rasulullah salla Llahu `alayhi wa sallam blessed with that he was able to discern that such malicious people will arise who will make his pure and noble companions targets of criticism. Instead of pondering over their own mistakes and weaknesses, they will search for faults amongst the first group of the pious predecessors. This is why Rasulullah salla Llahu `alayhi wa sallam said with great emphasis: “Fear Allah! Fear Allah regarding my Sahabah! Do not make them a target for your criticism after me.” This book sets out to emphasize the clear prohibitions in this regard as well as the dreadful consequences thereof
