The Ten Granted Paradise
Inspirational lessons from the lives of ten of the greatest companions of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
By Dr. Sayed Ammar Nakshawani
“Dr. Nakshawani in the following work not only corrects the widespread misconception that the Shi’i intellectual tradition despises and curses all companions, but also clarifies the reason for which some companions were considered people of Paradise in the Shi’i (and usually the Sunni tradition).
As an expert of the Shi’i tradition, Dr. Nakshawani presents relevant Shi’i narratives for non-specialists who would otherwise be unaware of them. Thus, the following biographies fill a gap in knowledge about companions not only revered in the Shi’i tradition, but according to the collective memory of pro-Alid Sunni and Shi’i authors, granted Paradise.”
