Some people these days degrade Prophets without even noticing. To degrade or belittle a Prophet is actually in fact degrading the wisdom of Allah, because Allah sent these Prophets to be followed and honored. Allah sent them as teachers to humanity to guide them from darkness into light. They were given the highest level of moral character and conduct. Allah praised the Prophets in many Ayahs in the Qu’ran and ordered us to follow them. Belittling the Prophets is totally against Islam as confirmed by the Qu’ran, Hadith and scholarly consensus.
When the Prophet died he had about 100,000 companions. Name at least four well known companions.
Bilal Al-Habashi (the Abysinian), Salmaan Al-Farisi (the Persian), Suhayl Ar-Rumi (known as the Roman), and Abu-that Al-Ghifari.
