CHAPTER: IT IS FORBIDDEN TO REVILE THE COMPANIONS OF THE HOLY PROPHET (SALLALLAAHU ALAYHI WA SALLAM)
Abu Huraira reported Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying: Do not revile my Companions, do not revile my Companions. By Him in Whose Hand is my life, if one amongst you would have spent as much gold as Uhud it would not amount to as much as one much on behalf of one of them or half of it.
Abu Sa'id reported there was some altercation between Khalid b. Walid and Abd al-Rahman b. 'Auf and Khalid reviled him. Thereupon Allaah's Messwger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: None should revile my Companions. for if one amongst you were to spend as much gold as Uhud, it would not amount to as much as one mudd of one of them or half of it.
This hadith has been transmitted on the authority of al-A'mash and there is no mention by Shu'ba and Waki' of 'Abd al-Rahman b. Auf and Khalid.
