Both Allah SWT and Rasulullah SAW reciprocated the companions love and devotion.
"… God is well-pleased with them as they are well-pleased with Him. He has prepared for them Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), to dwell therein forever." (Quran 9:100)
Rasulullah SAW said, "The best of my nation is my generation then those who follow them and then those who follow them."
Rasulullah SAW company in Paradise
Solah Tahajud in the midst of night peace.
Rabe’ah narrates: “I used to
remain in the khidmat (service) of Nabi SAW at night. I would keep
water, miswaak, Musalla (praying mat), etc., ready for his Tahajjud
Salaah. Once he, being very pleased with my services, asked me, ‘what
would you wish most?’ I replied, ‘O, Nabi of Allah, I wish your
company in Jannat.’
He asked me if there was anything else
I wished for, but I replied, ‘This is the only thing I wished for.’ Upon this, he remarked, ‘All
right, you should help me by frequently prostrating in Solah.’”
Here is a lesson for us. We should not
depend on verbal duas alone, but should also make some practical
effort to gain our object. The best of all efforts is Solah. It would
also be wrong to depend entirely on the duas of the Auliyaa and the
pious people alone. This is a world of cause and effect and no doubt,
The Strenght....The believe...
Allah SWT sometimes in his wisdom and
might does bring into effect things for which there is no visible and
physical cause, but this happens on very rare occasions. Regarding
our worldly matters, we make all possible efforts and never depend on
duas alone. So as far as the gains of Hereafter are concerned, we
should also try our best to adhere to the practical aspects of our
Deen. Neither should verbal dua be regarded as the only factor which
counts, nor, like a fatalist, leave everything to taqdir. No doubt,
the duas of pious people and lovers of Allah SWT have their due
effect, but they only go to boost our own sincere efforts and even
Nabi SAW. asked Rabe’ah to “help” him by prostrating frequently
(i.e., saying Solah in his leisure hours too).
