Sahabah-e-Karaam Companions (r.a) -

"I believe in ALLAH, in His Angels, His Scriptures, His Prophets, the Day of Judgment, and in the fact that every thing good or bad (in the world) is pre-destined by ALLAH the Exalted, and in the resurrection after death."

"Muhammad is a Messenger of ALLAH, and those who are with him are hard against the unbelievers and merciful among themselves, thou seest them bowing, prostrating, seeking bounty and pleasure of ALLAH, their mark is on their faces, being the trace of prostration. That is their likeness in the Torah and their likeness in the Gospel, as a seed that puts forth its shoot, then strengthens it, then it becomes stout, then it rises straight on its stalk, pleasing the sowers that, through them, He may enrage the unbelievers, ALLAH promises those, who believe and who, out of them, do righteous deeds, forgiveness and a big wage". ( 29 : 48 ) Al-Quran.

Belief of a Muslim on the Companions (r.a) of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) is:

It is unanimously agreed that the noble Companions (r.a) deserve our utmost respect, and are absolutely trustworthy. As for the discord which occurred among them, it is to be considered as the consequence of the sincere exercise of personal conviction and opinion. The discord was resolved and is a thing of the past. It is not permissible for us to hold, on the basis of past differences among the Companions (r.a), grudges and ill will which continue for generations. The Companions (r.a) are those whom ALLAH has described in the best of terms. He has praised them upon many occasions. It is not lawful for anyone to make any accusation against them or cast suspicion upon them, and there is no benefit to be derived there from.

"And those who believed and emigrated and struggled in the way of ALLAH, and those who gave shelter and helped, they are the Believers in truth; for them shall be forgiveness and generous provision". ( 8 : 74 ) Al-Quran.

"And the Foremost, the First among the Emigrants and the Helpers, and those who followed them in a good way, ALLAH is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him, and He has prepared for them gardens underneath which rivers flow, to dwell therein forever and ever; that is the mighty triumph". ( 9 : 100 ) Al-Quran.

"It is for the poor emigrants, who were expelled from their homes and their possessions, seeking bounty and good pleasure from ALLAH, and helping ALLAH and His Messenger; they are the truthful ones. And those who were settled in the city and in Faith before them, love those who emigrated towards them, and they do not find any need in their breasts for what has been given to them, and prefer them above themselves, though poverty be their lot; and whoso is saved from the greed of his soul those are the ones who will prosper". ( 59 : 8-9 ) Al-Quran.

Muslims love them and recite them as "radhiALLAHu anhu / anha / anhum (may ALLAH be pleased with them) after their names as appropriate. Out of thousands of Companions (r.a), Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) proposed 10 Companions (r.a) for the promise of the Heaven in their lives. Those are as follows:

Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq (r.a), Hazrat Umar Farooq (r.a), Hazrat Usman Ghani (r.a), Hazrat Ali Murtaza (r.a), Hazrat Talha (r.a), Hazrat Zubair (r.a), Hazrat Saad (r.a), Hazrat Saeed (r.a), Hazrat Abdul Rehman (r.a) and Hazrat Abu Ubaidah (r.a).

Sayings of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) : My Companions are like the stars, whom you may follow, will get the right path. (Mishkawt)

Note: Companions (r.a) popularly known as Sahabah-e-Karaam (r.a), are the part of our faith of Islam. Minor to minor negligence or misbehavior in their name and acts (Sunnah), may cause a Muslim to suffer the word of Kafir.
