عن أبي سعيد الخدري -رضي الله عنه- قال: قال النبي -صلى الله عليه وسلم-: «لا تَسُبُّوا أصحابي، فلو أنَّ أحدَكم أَنْفَقَ مثل أُحُد، ذهَبًا ما بَلَغَ مُدَّ أحدهم، ولا نَصِيفَه».
[صحيح.] - [متفق عليه.]

Abu Sa‘īd al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Do not insult my Companions, for if anyone of you spend gold equal to Mount Uhud (in Allah's cause), it will not be equal to a Mudd or even half a Mudd spent by one of them."
[Sahih/Authentic] - [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Explanation

The Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) forbade insulting any of his Companions. He also said that if anyone spent the like of Mount Uhud in gold, his reward would not amount to the reward that a Companion got for spending a handful or less of food. Indeed, the Companions are all better than those who came after them. Their spending was superior to that of others because they did so at the time of neediness and when they had limited resources. Also, their spending was meant to support and protect the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him). These virtues are unattainable after his death. Furthermore, the Companions strove in the cause of Allah, obeyed Him, were compassionate, humble, altruistic, and had the chance of meeting the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) even for a short while. Virtues are not subject to analogy in this context. They are a divine favor that Allah bestows on whomever He wills.
