What does the word companion mean to you?
“Companion”, distinguishable from the word “friend”, signals foremost trustworthiness. Reliability, a source of comfort and relief. A companion is one who is generous, loyal and charitable. The Sahabah of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) were amongst some of the most faithful and trustworthy people, who supported and helped the Last Prophet, through his greatest times of need. In a time fraught with corruption and deceit, people who embody these characteristics are often hard to come by. Selfishness, personal gain and dishonesty have unfortunately become innate and standard traits in our society – visible in politicians, the media, even people we consider friends.
