Description :

In this book, Shaykh Osman Nuri Topbas Hoca Efendi explains in detail what can be considered as the 'Age of Bliss' (Arabic : Asr-I-Saadah) as follows (extracted) :


''The Age of Bliss refers to an age of peace and happiness, in which human beings enjoyed the greatest joy thinkable. The Age of Bliss were times honoured by the presence of the Blessed Prophet, upon him be blessings and peace.


The Beloved Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, says :

           “ The best of my ummah  are those who live in my times,
              then those who follow them and then those follow them..
.”
                                                                              (Sahih al-Bukhari).


The term Asr-u Saadah has also been used, from time to time, to refer to period of the Righteous Caliphs, to the succeeding Tabi'in generation, even to the Taba Tabi'in generation subsequent to it. Some exegetes comment that the vow taken on asr, or ‘time’, in Surah al-Asr, is also in reference to the Asr-u Saadah ; for it was during those times that the true was definitively separated from false.''


Time and again, Abdullah ibn Masud, may Allah be well pleased with him, would recite and teach his students a certain ayah of the Qur'an and follow it up by saying,


            “ This ayah  is better than anything the Sun has ever shone upon
              on Earth
!” He would say the same for every single ayah.
                                                                            (Haythami, VII, 166).


His below words again show just how much the Companions were occupied in training themselves in Qur'anic sciences:


            “Whosoever desires knowledge, let him thoroughly contemplate the
              meanings of the Qur'an and concentrate on its interpretation and
              recital; for it contains the knowledge of past and present
.”
                                               (Haythami, VII, 165; Bayhaki, Shuab, II, 331).
