This article is confusing and misleading. Quranic verses should never be cut short so the true meaning is not distorted.IssaTruth (talk) 05:18, 24 February 2016 (UTC) Whole article is based on the Sunni sources and point of view without including Shia one at all. (Seriously?? have you read it?) Rather the Shia's are biased towards the Sahaba's (Radi Allahu 'Anhum). Also ' Radi Allahu 'Anhu ' and ' Radi Allahu 'Anha ' should be used for male Companions (Radi Allahu 'Anhu) and female Companions (Radi Allahu 'Anha) respectively.Also when referring two or Sahaba's (Radi Allahu 'Anhum) ' Radi Allahu 'Anhum ' should be used. After mentioning the name of The Prophet Muhammad (Sall-Allahu 'Alayhi wa Sallam) whether directly or indirectly or by using other name like Allah's (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala ) Apostle (Sall-Allahu 'Alayhi wa Sallam) etc 'Sall-Allahu 'Alayhi wa Salaam ' is not mentioned.Similarly appropriate terms should be used for Sahaba's (Radi Allahu 'Anhum) and the great scholars.Typo errors,errors in understanding or any type of error should be removed as these are religious matters.Also while mentioning The Name of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) ' Subhanahu was Ta'ala ' should be mentioned.For Angels and The Prophet's (Alayhim al-Salam) 'Alayhis-Salam' should be mentioned. Again any type of errors whether it be typographical, errors in correctly interpreting or understanding should be removed.Also cite references.

Ahmadi view[edit]

User:Khestwol, I'm not sure how my edit was undue. First note that Ahmadiyya qualifies at least as a significant minority per description here WP:UNDUE. Secondly, WP:UNDUE appears to be aligned towards fair representations of "theories". The fact that Ahmadis consider companions of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad as a sahabah is not a theory. A better guideline is perhaps WP:RNPOV, which sets an example of how religion based articles should be treated: "Certain Frisbeetarianists (such as Rev. Carlin) believe This and That...", which is exactly how I edited the article. The article gives a descriptive paragraph on sahabah and attempts to show differences between Sunnis and Shias. Adding that "Ahmadis additionally refer to the companions of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad as sahaba" fits in perfectly with the theme in discussion.--Peaceworld 14:04, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Hello Peaceworld111. If you can get a consensus here to add that view right into the lede, I will have no objection. But at the moment I am opposing adding that, simply because I do not think that a view held by only 0.5% (or less) of all Muslims has a WP:DUE weight to be mentioned in the lede. Academic sources don't give as much weight to Ahmadi views as much as they give to Sunni and Shia views when discussing Islamic concepts. Hope this helps.

User:Khestwol, please don't simply enforce a consensus, particularly to this somewhat incomplete and badly written article with almost zero academic sources which therefore will probably not itself garner sufficient editors to hold a consensus. Please correct yourself, Ahmadis represent roughly 1%, which corresponds to 10-20 million adherents and is therefore sufficiently significant for its distinctive views to be mentioned in the article. The lede is indeed the correct place, which as I said earlier is the only reasonable place that fits the context.--Peaceworld 16:14, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Ahmadis are not Muslims and they should rather be called Quadiyannis.They are derailing the Muslim Ummah.You should consult various refutations written against this deviant group.Even considering them minorities is not right as they are not Muslims in the first place. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:23, 19 December 2015 (UTC)

Propose/Request move[edit]

The page should be under the common English name: Companions of the Prophet, a term that has been in use to translate Sahabah in to English for centuries.E.M.Gregory (talk) 13:01, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

If so, start a WP:RM for that. Khestwol (talk) 13:12, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
