عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ , عَنْ أَبِيهِ , عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ ، قَالَ : ” وَلِيَنَا أَبُو بَكْرٍ الصِّدِّيقُ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ خَيْرُ خَلِيفَةِ اللَّهِ ، وَأَرْحَمَهُ بِنَا وَأَحْنَاهُ عَلَيْنَا “

Ja’afar bin Muhammad (al Sadiq), from his Father Muhammad bin Ali (al Baqir), from Abdullah ibn Ja’afar bin Abi Talib that he said: ” Abu Bakr al Siddeeq may Allah be pleased with him became our Caliph and he was the best of the Caliphs of Allah, he was most merciful and most caring towards us.

Hadith grading: Al-Hakim said SAHIH and al-Dhahabi agreed with him, Ibn Hajar al Asqalani said the Hadith has a good chain of narrators.

Two Sahih Narrations by Imam ja’afar bin Muhammad (rah):

عن سالم بن أبي حفصة قال : قال لي جعفر : (( يا سالم – أبو بكر جدي أيسب الرجل جده ؟ قال : وقال لي لا نالتني شفاعة محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم في القيامة إن لم أكن أتولاهما وأبرأ من عدوهما ))

Salim bin abi Hafsah asks the Imam about Abu Bakr and Umar: Ja’afar bin Muhammad told me: “O Salim, Abu Bakr is my grandfather, would a Man insult his own grandfather?” He (Ja’afar) also told me: ” May the intersession(Shafa’ah) of Muhammad peace be upon him never reach me on the day of judgement if I am not loyal to them and if I did not disassociate myself from their enemies”.

sources:
-Siyar A’alam al Nubalaa (6/258,259) by al Imam al Dhahabi, He said This Isnad is SAHIH in Tareekh al Islam (6/46).

-Usool I’itiqad ahlulsunnah by al Lalkaee (7/1301) #2465.

A Sahih narration from Ja’afar bin Muhammad al-Sadiq (rah):

بريء الله ممن تبرأ من أبي بكر و عمر

Abu Abdullah Ja’afar bin Muhammad said: “Allah has disassociated himself from those who have disassociated themselves from Abu Bakr and Umar.”

قال الذهبي : قلت: هذا القول متواتر عن جعفر الصادق، أشهد بالله إنه لبار في قوله غير منافق لأحد، فقبح الله الرافضة

Hadith Grading: Imam al Dhahabi (rah) said while commenting on the narration: This saying is Mutawatir (100% authentic) from Ja’afar al Sadiq, I bear witness in front of Allah that he is honest in his saying and not lying in front of anyone(Taqqiyah), may Allah increase the Rafidah in ugliness.
