From the Publisher
This unique book is the first volume in IQRA's series entitled Stories of the Sahabah as adapted by Mrs. Noura Durkee. This volume contains the biographies of twenty-one intimate Sahabah who were promised their place in Paradise. A more famous Hadith on this subject promises Jannah to ten Sahabah, popularly known as al-'Ashrah al-Mubashshirah. There are other traditions which mention the name of other Sahabah and Sahabiyat who were promised Jannah in their life time or soon after their death. We believe that all the Sahabah of Rasulullah e will enter Jannah; in this volume, we have included only those chosen ones who heard the good news from the Prophet e himself.
