”…So far as the Holy Prophet, sallallaho alaihi wa sallam; is concerned he has been praised both on the land and in the heavens. This honour and distinction has been given to none but the Holy Prophet, sallallaho alaihi wa sallam. The large number of pure people who were with the Holy Prophet, sallallaho alaihi wa sallam, was not given to anyone else…”
“His name is Mohammad because this word means the one who is very greatly praised. Mohammad is the person who is praised in the land and on the skies. There are a lot of people who were very much looked down upon by the worldly people and they were considered to be lowly and dealt with, like lowly people but they were greatly honoured and praised on the skies. They were truthful in the eyes of God. There are others who are praised by the worldly people, they receive appreciation from all the sides but they were cursed by the heavens and by God, His Angels and His near ones; they do not praise them.
So far as the Holy Prophet, sallallaho alaihi wa sallam; is concerned he has been praised both on the land and in the heavens. This honour and distinction has been given to none but the Holy Prophet, sallallaho alaihi wa sallam. The large number of pure people who were with the Holy Prophet, sallallaho alaihi wa sallam, was not given to anyone else. Of course Moses, peace be on him, had a nation of millions but they were not as steadfast, or virtuous and courageous as were the Companions of the Holy Prophet, may God be pleased with them. So far as the people of Moses are concerned their condition was such that they were believers at night and renegade during the day.
Comparing the Companions of the Holy Prophet with people of Moses tantamounts to their comparison with the whole world. The people who joined the Holy Prophet were so righteous and Godly and sincere that the like of them can-not be met with anywhere in the world. Great appreciation for them is mentioned in the books of Hadees. So much so that the Holy Prophet sallallaho alaihi, wa sallam, says:
Allahu. Allahu fii ashaabee
(i.e. you can find the manifestation of God in the lives of my Companions).
The Holy Quran also praises them in the words.
Yabeetoona li-Rabbihim sujjadan wa qiyaamaa
i.e. they spend their nights prostrating and standing (in prayers) for their Lord”.
(Malfoozat Vol. III, pp. 83)
