As far as I am concerned, how do we even know there was a companion named anyone that existed and why should it matter. I don't trust so called Islamic history to base my life on at all. All I need to know is that Allah was razi with them and they were with Allah. They earned their rewards more or less, that is non of our concerns. We should not waste our times trying to find out what they did or not that was 1400 years ago and may or may not had been true and concentrate on the message at hand and do what have been told to do ...!
Allah should be enough, along with His message He promised to save and is miraculously safe so far, so no doubt about it!
