Title: Companions of the Prophet
Author: Messaoud Abu Usama
Theme: The life of the prophet (sbdl) & The history of Islam
Description: Each Messenger of God had his circle of disciples who supported and strengthened him in his mission in this world. These early believers are also those who have had the merit of keeping and preserving the teachings transmitted by the prophets of God to future generations. If Judaism had its "judges" and if Christianity had its "apostles", Islam also had its "companions" (assahâba), the close disciples of the Prophet (sbdl) who supported him in his apostolate and who spread his message after his death. It is thanks to them that the teachings of Islam have come down to us intact.

They left all that they had as glory and pomp for the path of trial?! 2 Indeed, what prompted the weak of his people to come running to be under his banner and follow him, who was without arms and without money? He was not immune to the wickedness and hatred of his relatives, his clan, his people. These early days of Islam when the ordeal was great could repel the first converts, but the strength of the message attracted them. Only God, knew at that time, the repercussions of the Revelation. Consequently, it is the duty of each believer and of each believer to know the life and the prodigious work of the companions in order to imbue his life with their example. It is therefore with this in mind that we have decided to write this work which, without claiming to exhaust the subject,
