Abstract:

The personality of Maūlānā Muhammad Nafi’ is distinguished in religious, literary, and research circles. His published writings are very much prominent in the research field. He has presented events and sayings in his publications with accuracy. He used to quote the original text as a reference and mentioned a variety of references for evidence. Unfortunately, the propagation against the companions of the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) by some groups or sects is being made which is causing restlessness and breach in spiritual beliefs. It was a dire need to present the reality about the companions of the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) to the people and remove the confusion and even hatred from their hearts. God Almighty has honored Maūlānā Nāfi’ for this sacred task by writing a book titled “رحماء بینھم” and he performed it with full devotion. For the truthfulness of incidents, the proper reference from the famous books has been brought for the opposed groups so that the reality should be seen, and the enmity of the companions could be demolished. The said author has presented the evidence from the writes of objectors so that there must not be left any further point for objection. After presenting the evidence the author did not decide himself rather, he left the decision to the reader so that society could get the guidance. The author has taken the basic sources to present his material to avoid exaggerated and dissatisfied material. The author adopted an exemplary approach for the presentation of dignity and honor the companions of the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) to overcome doubts about them created by some personalities. Resultantly doubts will be removed, and no one will be disheartened. This kind of book is very important for avoiding contemporary sectarian conflicts and peace of society. The research has been done on the topic of the above-mentioned theme keeping in view the rationale and thoughts of the said scholar.

Keywords: Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H), Muḥammad Nāfi’, “Ruḥmā-u-Baynahum”, Companions
