Today, there are over 500 million Muslims throughout the Indian subcontinent (India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh), making it one of the largest population centers of Muslims in the world. Since Islam first entered India, it has contributed greatly to the area and its people. Today, numerous theories about how India came to be such a largely Muslim land exist.

The truth, however, is far from that.

The Sahaba, as a class of people, attained such high qualities that today’s weak society find it difficult to emulate them completely. We would be fortunate if we really attain even a partial resemblance to their character.

Some of the qualities are distinctly their mark. Sympathy and self sacrifice is one of them.

A Sahabi came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and complained of hunger and distress. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) didn’t have any food. He then asked the sahabas that who will take this sahabi as their guest on behalf of me.
