Virtues of Sahabah : "Allah is pleased with the first to lead the way from the Muhaajireen, the Ansar, and those who followed them with sincerity and they are please with Him. He has prepared for them such Jannaat beneath which rivers flow, in which they shall live forever. This is the ultimate success."[Surah Taubah: 100]

Sayings of Prophet Mohammed about his companions (the Sahabah)
"Do not abuse my Companions, for if any of you were to spend gold equal to (mountain of) Uhud in charity, it would not equal a handful of one of them or even half of that" [Bukharee, Muslim].
"Whoever abuses my Companions, upon them is the curse of Allah, the angels and all the people"[Tabaranee].
"The sign of faith is love of the Ansar and the sign of hypocrisy is the hatred of Ansar" [Bukharee, Muslim].
"My Sahabah are like stars, You will be rightly guided by following any one of them" [Razeen, Jam'ul Fawaa`id]

Companions (Sahabah) are all those who met Prophet Mohammed and died as Muslims. One of the fundamental beliefs of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama`ah, that at times distinguishes them from heretics is their belief in the Companions (Sahabah) of Prophet Mohammed and all that has been mentioned about their virtues, merits and characteristics in the Qur'an and Sunnah.

Soul in Inter-space (barzakh)

The life of this world is nothing in comparison to the life of the Hereafter. The experiences, happiness and sorrows of this life are microscopic in relation to the Afterlife. The phenomenon commences when the soul exits the body. At such a crucial stage, there are two groups: the fortunate ones and the wretched ones.

The fortunate ones are received like kings. Hundreds of angels receive them, fragrance surrounds them and light engulfs them. They are escorted to Almighty Allah Ta’ālā in a convoy of light comprised of the angels.

The wretched ones are terrorised from the moment they sight the hereafter unfolding. Repulsive black angels, putrid smell and fire grasps them. Their souls are ripped out of their bodies and driven to Almighty Allah.

Once the soul exits the body, it enters Inter-space (barzakh). This is another world and realm altogether. This is the intermediary state between the two worlds.

The treatment one receives in Inter-space (barzakh) is a reflection of one’s deeds and actions in this world. If a person was an obedient slave of Almighty Allah, he will be entertained with royalty. If he was anything to the contrary, words cannot describe his ordeal. This concept can be understood by analogising Inter-space (barzakh) to waiting in transit at an airport. The holders of privilege cards and bonus points’ holders are reclining in the first class luxury lounges. Some are entertained in the business lounge, others are offered free meals, and some are only entitled to a free drink. There will be those passengers who are not entitled to anything. Worse than that, some passengers are left stranded in transit, others face ordeals and troubles with flight cancellations and suffer prolonged anxiety. This is a depiction of the souls in Inter-space (barzakh). Different souls receive different privileges based on their ‘points’ they score in this world.

Effect of Haram Food and Haram Earnings

Jaabir (Radiyallaahu Anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, “No meat (i.e. person) that was nourished with haraam will enter paradise. Every meat (i.e. person) that was nourished with haraam is more deserving of the Fire.” (Musnad Ahmad, Daarami, Baihaqi; Mishkaatul Masaabih pg. 242, Qadeemi)

Abu Hurairah (Radiyallaahu Anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said, “Verily, Allah is Pure and He only accepts pure, and indeed Allah commanded the Believers what He commanded the Messengers. He said: ‘O Messengers, eat of the pure things and perform righteous acts. Verily, I am Well-Aware of what you do.’ And He said ‘O you who believe! Eat of the good things that We have provided you with, and give thanks to Allah if Him it is that you serve.’ Then the narrator of the hadith says: Then he (i.e. the Prophet) made mention of a man who is constantly in journeys and has dishevelled hair and dusty appearance (due to constant journeys for performing acts of righteousness such as Hajj, Umra, seeking knowledge etc.) and he raises his hands towards the sky saying “O my Rabb. O my Rabb”. But his food is from haraam. His drink is from haraam. His clothes are from haraam. He is nourished from haraam. How can it (his prayer) be accepted?” (Muslim; Mishkaatul Masaabih pg. 241, Qadeemi)
