The Best of Generations (Hadith No. 2541)

Bismillah.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 146 :
Narrated by Abu Said Al-Khudri (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “A time will come when groups of people will go for Jihad and it will be asked, ‘Is there anyone amongst you who has enjoyed the company of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)?’ The answer will be, ‘Yes.’ Then they will be given victory (by Allah) (because of him). Then a time will come when it will be asked. ‘Is there anyone amongst you who has enjoyed the company of the companions of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)?’ It will be said, ‘Yes,’ and they will be given victory (by Allah). Then a time will come when it will be said. ‘Is there anyone amongst you who has enjoyed the company of the companions of the companions of the Prophet?’ It will be said, ‘Yes,’ and they will be given victory (by Allah).”

This narration signifies the rank and honor of the companions, tabi’een and their followers – the three best generations according to the hadith of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam):

Best of Generations.

It also proves that people get good from Allah because of the good ones among them. For example, there can be a community who gets Allah’s blessings not because they’re His favorites as a whole, but because there are some individuals/groups among them who are loved by Him, and He lets His Mercy rain on all of them.
