Among the Sahaaba is a group of ten Companions who are known by the title Ashrah Mubash-sharah which means the ten Sahaaba about who Rasullullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) gave the glad tidings of Janaat. Rasullullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) informed that these ten Sahaaba have already been promised Janaat, hence we have to believe with certainty that the following ten Companions are Janaati. The Blessed Ten Companions are:

1-Abu bakr Siddiq
3-Uthman binAffa’an
4-Ali Ibn Abi Talib
5-Abdur-Rahman bin A’aowf
6-Sa’ad ibn Abi Waqqas
7-Sa’id ibn Zayd
8-Abu Ubaydah bin Al-Jirrah
9-Talhah ibn Ubaydullah
10-Zubair bin Al-Awam

Hazrat Abu Bakr
ABU BAKR- He is Sayidna Abu Bakr As-Siddiq (The truthful) who was the first amongst the males to testify to the call of the Holy Prophet (Sallalaho Alaihi Wasallam) towards Islam and he responded without hesitation. He was the best of the Companions and was renowned for his sincerity and sacrifices in the cause of Allah Almighty. He was the nearest of any of the Companions to the Holy Prophet (Sallaho Alaihi Wasallam) and was his closest friend. He was born two years before the blessed birth of Our Beloved Prophet (Sallalaho Alaihi Wasallam) also known as the Year of the Elephant. He was the first KHALIF (leader of the Muslims) after the passing away of the Messenger of Allah Almighty (Sallalaho Alaihi Wasallam). During his leadership he fought the apostates (defeating them), established the pillars of Islam and added Syria, Palestine and parts of Iraq to the Islamic lands. He died in 13 A.H at the age of 63 after leading the Muslim for 2 years and 7 months and was buried beside the Messenger of Allah Almighty (Sallalaho Alaihi Wasallam). It was of him who once the great companion Hazrat Sayidna Umar bin Al-Khattab (Radi Allah Anhu) said that: “If the faith of Abu Bakr (Radi Allah Anhu) were placed on one side of a scale and the faith of the entire Muslim community (UMMAH) on the other, Abu Bakr (Radi Allah Anhu)’s (faith) would outweigh it.”

Hazrat Umar
UMAR- He is Sayidna Umar bin Al-Khattab (Radi Allah Anhu). He was born 13 years after the Holy Prophet (Sallalaho Alaihi Wasallam) and embraced Islam 5 years before the HIJRAH (emigration to Madina) after which he was named Al-Farooq (one who makes distinction between truth and falsehood) by the Holy Prophet (Sallalaho Alaihi Wasallam). The Muslims were strengthened by his Islam after which they openly worshipped in front of the KAA’BA. He was the strongest defenders of Islam and was well known for his strength and severity especially against the hypocrites. He became the second KHALIF (leader of the Muslims) and during his 10-year rule the remaining territories of Syria, Palestine, Iraq and Egypt came under Muslim rule and about 12,000 mosques were established. He attained martyrdom at the hand of a hypocrite slave Abu Lu’lu’a in 23 A.H who stabbed him during the FAJR (dawn) prayer and died 3 days later. He was buried beside the Messenger of Allah Almighty (Sallalaho Alaihi Wasallam), thus being amongst the “privileged two” who was closest to the Holy Prophet (Sallalaho Alaihi Wasallam) and after it (the other being Hazrat Sayidna Abu Bakr As-Siddiq (Radi Allah Anhu). The Holy Prophet (Sallalaho Alaihi Wasallam) once said about him: “ Among the nation of Bani Israel who lived before you, there were men who used to be inspired with guidance though they were not prophets, and if there is any of such persons amongst my followers, it is Umar (Radi ALLAH Anhu).” {Sahih Al-Bukhari 5.38)

Hazrat Usman
UTHMAN- He is Sayidna Uthman bin Affan (Radi Allah Anhu). He was born in Makkah 47 years before the HIJRAH...
