  1. Sahaba part Two

    Since I have not received real clarity regarding my previous question, let me try to approach it from a different angle {Allah Willing}. Is it correct to assume that a infant born during the last year of the Prophet's life, or someone who may have been in the congregation during his farewell speech, or someone who became Muslim and later rebelled against the subsequent leadership of the Muslims after the death of the Prophet, are any of the groups listed herein, considered Companions. If so, then how do we define who is or who is not a companion? I here this term Sahaba being used a lot, but I am looking for some clarity regarding it's usage. For example Those Muslims who were engaged in the wars during the Caliphate of Abu Bakr, the battle of Jamal, etc... {I am not seeking who is or was right or wrong in those examples} I am trying to determine if it is within the bounds of Islam to rely upon the statements of particular people merely upon their seeing, or being in the company of the Prophet, or for that matter, in the company of the Imams...
  2. Sahaba

    Prior to the political or the scholars interference during or around the third century {Islamic Period}, how was the term Sahaba defined? I mean, how did the Muslims identify those who were to be called or identified as Sahaba?
