Companion Quest is a wonderful way to get familiar with the best generation, the heroes of Islaam and the role models for our kids (radhiyallaahu anhuma) from an early age. Lot of work and effort has been put into this and I really think its a great investment for many many years for kids as well as adults.
There are many different facts about 100 companions of the Messenger of Allaah sallaahu alaihiwasallam. Instructions to play the game is also included. One Companion Card consists of 5 facts about the same companion but each fact has different points. The first clue or fact about the Companion carries the most amount of points. This can be used for Family Time too where all the members of the family would benefit bi idhnillaah.
You also get some blank cards for you to do some research about other companions and fill in.
The most important thing that I was worried about is the source or reference that they have used for this collection and Alhamdulillaah it is mentioned in the pack that the reference is Imaam Dhahabi's well known Book Siyar Al Aalam An Nubalaa. This was a relief as you can see many people putting out children's books these days and only handful of them take care in making the contents authentic.
Overall the product is nice and we use it everyday during our Fun Activity Time these days. The only drawback is that I would have preferred it to be in the third person narrative rather than the first person narrative as I really feel odd to say "I am , Who am I" referring to a Sahabah of the
Messenger of Allaah, as we know that we can never match them no matter what as the Messenger of Allaah himself said:
"“Do not curse the Sahaabah, for by the One in Whose hand is my soul, if any one of you spent the equivalent of Mount Uhud in gold, he would not attain the level of any one of them, or even come half way.” (Saheehayn)
