The sixty-four companions presented here are representative of that unique generation, a generation without parallel in history.

This book is a translation based on Khalid Muhammad Khalid’s celebrated work in Arabic, Rijal Hawla al-Rasul. The sixty-four companions presented here are representative of that unique generation, a generation without parallel in history. They come from all walks of life and character. These are stories of real people which can be historically verified. These stories will touch the souls of the believers, for they will find in them yet another proof of that conviction that fills their hearts, though it may be denied and its signs effaced by wielders of power in the Muslim lands through treachery and cowardice.
