The door of Islam is the Sahaba…

Hafiz Abul Qasim ibn ‘Asakir has documented in Tarikh Dimashq that Imam an-Nasa’i was asked about Mu’awiyah Ibn Abi Sufyan [Radiallahu anhuma]. His reply was:

‘Islam is like a house with a door. The door of Islam is the Sahaba. Whoever speaks ill of the Sahaba seeks but to harm Islam, just like one who knocks a door to enter a house. As for Mu’awiyah, whoever speaks ill of him seeks to find a way to speak ill of the Sahaba.’

(Cited in Tahdhib al-Kamal, vol. 1 p. 339)

سُئل أبوعبد الرحمن النسائي عن معاويةَ بن أبي سفيان رضي الله عنهما فقال

إنما الإسلام كدارٍ لها بابٌ، فبابُ الإسلام الصحابة، فمن آذى الصحابةَ إنما أرادَ الإسلام، كمن نَقرَ البابَ إنما يريدُ دخولَ الدار. قال: فمن أراد معاويةَ فإنما أراد الصحابة.
