Description :

The most exceptional era in human history in terms of virtue, justice, altruism, and ethics was the era of the golden age of Islam. It is called a golden age because the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, whose inward spirit many Muslims understand as the original cause of creation, was alive in the world during that time.

The spiritual power of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, shaped the era in which he lived. And it was then possible for great numbers of ordinary people to encounter him regularly and to get to know him well. The people of that honoured age emerged out of the darkness of violent ignorance and made their way to the civilisation of peaceful virtue. Then they climbed the peaks of knowledge of Allah Almighty. Members of this community are therefore called the Venerable Companions of the Prophet. They were faithful to the Prophet in all matters.

Thus, the Companions are a unique generation. They witnessed the acts and words of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and passed indications from him onward to all the generations that followed. Among the Companions of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, the four successive leaders who guided the community after him came to be known as the Rightly-Guided Caliphs. They were pioneers in the formation of an Islamic identity shaped by the characteristic virtues of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. They were in love with the Prophet, and so they internalised his qualities of character and his ethics. In this way their hearts became sacred places where divine love could be found. And their acts and words became good examples for all Muslims.

Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace,  said about the value of the era of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs, “The age of  true caliphate after me is thirty years.”
The Prophet, by these words, pointed out that the political life of Muslims would deteriorate after that time.
