Reason for Discussing the Lives of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu 'anhum) :
To begin, picture this in your mind: You have two recipe books before you. One of them calls for such ingredients that are rare. You may require some curry powder which is not locally available, maybe from some market in India, perhaps some chillies from Thailand and some exotic vegetables from Malaysia. The pictures that the recipe book shows are beautiful, the dish seems very attractive but the ingredients that the recipe calls for are extremely difficult to obtain. So, we would all love to prepare that dish but really, how often can we prepare such a meal and how easy or difficult would it be to get those ingredients? We all very well know. But, on the other hand, there is another book that calls for ingredients that are very easily available, they are available locally; at your local grocer perhaps, they may even grow in your backyard and it prepares an equally appetizing dish. Which book would we refer to everyday?
Naturally we would refer to the second one. In the same way, Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) and the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu 'anhum) were people of beautiful character, and were those who had reached the highest position in the sight of Allah Ta'ala, yet they were normal people like you and I. They were people whose lives were just like ours. They were simple, normal, ordinary people. The challenges that we face and the things that attract us were also the challenges they faced and the attractions they had. This is the reason for the convention of this program; so that we can assimilate from the lives of Sahaabah (radhiyallahu 'anhum) as well as relate to them, thus making it easy for us to emulate and follow them.
