Texas Deen Intensive 2020
“Be Like Us” | The Way of the Sahabah
رَّضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمْ وَرَضُوا عَنْهُ
“Allah is well pleased with them, and they are well pleased with Him.”
[Surah Al-Bayyinah: Verse 8]
As we seek to improve in any aspect of our lives, it’s necessary to find a benchmark by which we can measure our progress. In order to enhance our connection with Allah and His prophet, we look to those who strove to change themselves, better society, and spread the message of Islam. We find our example in this generation, who adopted the teachings of the Prophet (ﷺ) and were able to interact with him during his lifetime, whom Allah was pleased with — the Sahabah.
These companions of the Prophet (ﷺ) would travel to foreign lands, interacting with new people for the purpose of Da’wah and trade. The companions’ embodiment of the Sunnah in their interactions would spark a curiosity within the people. The Sahabah would then encourage them by saying “كُوْنُوْا مِثْلَنَا” or “Be Like Us”. From this we learn that the Sahabah were firm in their belief that the teachings of the Prophet (ﷺ) were indeed those that ought to be followed by everyone, regardless of time or place.
Join us at Texas Deen Intensive to understand why the Sahabah were considered the best generation. We hope you will gain insight into what motivated these companions to abandon their pasts to worship Allah, learn the Qur’an and exemplify the Sunnah, and elevate those around them. Using these lessons, we seek to inspire the passion for knowledge in order to uplift ourselves as well as those around us.
