Prophet (saw): Go to Abubakr if you do not find me

The Messenger of Allah (صلی الله علیه و سلم): Go to Abubakr if you do not find me.

حَدَّثَنَا الْحُمَيْدِيُّ، وَمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، قَالاَ حَدَّثَنَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ سَعْدٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ جُبَيْرِ بْنِ مُطْعِمٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، قَالَ أَتَتِ امْرَأَةٌ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَأَمَرَهَا أَنْ تَرْجِعَ إِلَيْهِ‏.‏ قَالَتْ أَرَأَيْتَ إِنْ جِئْتُ وَلَمْ أَجِدْكَ كَأَنَّهَا تَقُولُ الْمَوْتَ‏.‏ قَالَ عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَمُ ‏ “‏ إِنْ لَمْ تَجِدِينِي فَأْتِي أَبَا بَكْرٍ ‏‏‏.‏

A woman came to the Prophet (ﷺ) who ordered her to return to him again. She said, “What if I came and did not find you?” as if she wanted to say, “If I found you dead?” The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “If you should not find me, go to Abu Bakr.”

Iranian Shia intellectual: We are Muslim due to sacrifices of Sahaba

Hassan Rahimpour Azghadi is a powerful figure in the Iranian regime. He makes some strong statements.

He says: “Whoever insults the companions of the Prophet (saw) because they are the companions of the Prophet (saw) becomes a murtad/apostate because it is an insult to the Prophet (saw). Everything we have is due to the Sahaba. If it wasn’t for the sacrifices of the companions of the Prophet (saw) we wouldn’t have been Muslims. If they had not fought in Badr, Uhud, Khaibar, Khandaq, if they had not left their properties in Makkah and if the the Ansar had not welcomed them to their homes, could the Prophet (saw) raise the flag of Islam on his own? Therefore, we are indebted to the Sahaba of the Prophet (saw) for everything we have today and forever.”

The last day of the Prophet (saw)

The beautiful hadith shows that the Prophet (saw) on his last day was smiling cheerfully after seeing his companions praying in the mosque and Abubakr (ra) leading them. The same day the Prophet (saw) died.

حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو الْيَمَانِ، قَالَ أَخْبَرَنَا شُعَيْبٌ، عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ، قَالَ أَخْبَرَنِي أَنَسُ بْنُ مَالِكٍ الأَنْصَارِيُّ ـ وَكَانَ تَبِعَ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَخَدَمَهُ وَصَحِبَهُ أَنَّ أَبَا بَكْرٍ كَانَ يُصَلِّي لَهُمْ فِي وَجَعِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم الَّذِي تُوُفِّيَ فِيهِ، حَتَّى إِذَا كَانَ يَوْمُ الاِثْنَيْنِ وَهُمْ صُفُوفٌ فِي الصَّلاَةِ، فَكَشَفَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم سِتْرَ الْحُجْرَةِ يَنْظُرُ إِلَيْنَا، وَهْوَ قَائِمٌ كَأَنَّ وَجْهَهُ وَرَقَةُ مُصْحَفٍ، ثُمَّ تَبَسَّمَ يَضْحَكُ، فَهَمَمْنَا أَنْ نَفْتَتِنَ مِنَ الْفَرَحِ بِرُؤْيَةِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم، فَنَكَصَ أَبُو بَكْرٍ عَلَى عَقِبَيْهِ لِيَصِلَ الصَّفَّ، وَظَنَّ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم خَارِجٌ إِلَى الصَّلاَةِ، فَأَشَارَ إِلَيْنَا النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم أَنْ أَتِمُّوا صَلاَتَكُمْ، وَأَرْخَى السِّتْرَ، فَتُوُفِّيَ مِنْ يَوْمِهِ‏.

Narrated Az-Zuhri:

Anas bin Malik Al-Ansari, told me, “Abu Bakr used to lead the people in prayer during the fatal illness of the Prophet (ﷺ) till it was Monday. When the people aligned (in rows) for the prayer the Prophet (ﷺ) lifted the curtain of his house and started looking at us and was standing at that time. His face was (glittering) like a page of the Qur’an and he smiled cheerfully. We were about to be put to trial for the pleasure of seeing the Prophet, Abu Bakr retreated to join the row as he thought that the Prophet (ﷺ) would lead the prayer. The Prophet (ﷺ) beckoned us to complete the prayer and he let the curtain fall. On the same day he died.”

The Book of Virtues of Hazrat Abu Bakr

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

“The pure confirmation of al-Siddiq’s virtues” – written by Hani al-Tarabulsi al-Shafi`i

We have been asked to write a book for the purpose of introducing the English speaking Muslim community to the virtues and high status of the companion of Rasul-Allah (saw) and his successor, the first Caliph of Islam, Hazrat Abu Bakr ibn abi Quhafah. The reason for this project was due to the fact that we observed that the Muslim community in the west was not familiar with the companions generally, and we also noticed that people today tend to not make an effort to learn religion from authentic and traditional sources, they rather prefer to browse the internet for knowledge.

However, as the intelligent reader knows, the internet is filled with deviant writings of misguided individuals with sectarian agendas; it is a trap for any Muslim who has not fortified his beliefs with the Qur’an and Sunnah. So we wrote this book and we called it “The pure confirmation of al-Siddiq’s virtues” hoping that the believers can benefit from our effort by Allah’s will and our only intention is to seek Allah’s pleasure through this work.

Shah Ismail Safavi & killings of Sunni scholars in Shiraz for refusing to curse Sahaba

Shah Ismail Safavi and killings of Sunni scholars in Shiraz for refusing to curse the Khulafa Rashideen, the close companions of Prophet (saw).

Shia scholar Nematullah al-Jazairi says in Anwar un Numania, 1/ 27:

ولما اتى اسماعيل اعلى الله مقامه الى شيراز وكان اكثر علمائها من المخالفين احضرهم وامرهم بلعن المتخلفين الثلثة فامتنعوا عن اللعن لان التقية لا تجوز عندهم في اللعن واضرابه فامر بقتلهم

When Ismail reached Shiraz, where most of the scholars there were the opponents (Sunnis); he gathered them and ordered them to curse the three caliphs, but they rejected because Taqiyyah is not permissible according to them, so he ordered to kill them.

Ali’s opinion on Uthman, Talhah & Zubayr

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

al-Salamu `Aleykum,

Since I’ve been going through the books of history, as you know they’re full of stories, some have truth to them and some are fabrications, usually chainless narratives having no sources.

So since we’ve had to post such horrible things, we might as well post some authentic reliable material to remind the readers of the truth… There definitely are quite a bunch of narrations which show the good relationship they had, I picked this one.

Al-Bayhaqi has made Takhreej of this in his “al-I`tiqad”:

أَخْبَرَنَا أَبُو طَاهِرٍ الْفَقِيهُ، أنا أَبُو بَكْرٍ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ الْقَطَّانُ، ثنا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ يُوسُفَ السُّلَمِيُّ، ثنا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يُوسُفَ، قَالَ: ذَكَرَ سُفْيَانُ، عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، قَالَ: قَالَ عَلِيٌّ: إِنِّي لأَرْجُو أَنْ أَكونَ، وَطَلْحَةُ، وَالزُّبَيْرُ مِنَ الَّذِينَ قَالَ اللَّهُ : وَنَزَعْنَا مَا فِي صُدُورِهِمْ مِنْ غِلٍّ إِخْوَانًا عَلَى سُرُرٍ مُتَقَابِلِينَ. وَكَانَ أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ، بَرِيئًا مِنْ قَتْلِ عُثْمَانَ، يَقُولُ: وَاللَّهِ مَا قَتَلْتُ وَلا أَمَرْتُ وَلا رَضِيتُ وَلا شَارَكْتُ فِي قَتْلِ عُثْمَانَ، وَلَكِنْ غُلِبْتُ، وَكَانَ يَقُولُ: إِنِّي لأَرْجُو أَنْ أَكُونَ أَنَا، وَعُثْمَانُ مِنَ الَّذِينَ قَالَ اللَّهُ : وَنَزَعْنَا مَا فِي صُدُورِهِمْ مِنْ غِلٍّ إِخْوَانًا عَلَى سُرُرٍ مُتَقَابِلِينَ

[Al-Baqir said: `Ali ibn abi Talib said: “I wish that I and Talhah and al-Zubayr would be from those whom Allah described: {And We will remove whatever is in their breasts of resentment, [so they will be] brothers, on thrones facing each other (In paradise)}” and Ameer-ul-Mu’mineen may Allah be pleased with him was innocent from the murder of `Uthman, he would say: “By Allah I never took part in the killing nor did I order it nor am I pleased with it and I never participated in `Uthman’s murder, but I failed (to help because of the rebels).” And he used to say: “I wish that I and `Uthman would be as Allah described: {Brothers on thrones facing each other}.“]

Another narration from al-Tabari’s Tafsir:

حدثنا مـحمد بن بشار، قال: ثنا مـحمد بن جعفر، قال: ثنا شعبة، عن أبـي بشر، عن يوسف بن سعد ولـيس بـابن ماهَك عن مـحمد بن حاطب، قال: سمعت علـيًّا يخطب فقرأ هذه الآية: { إنَّ الَّذِينَ سَبَقَتْ لَهُمْ مِنَّا الـحُسْنَى أُولَئِكَ عَنْها مُبْعَدُونَ }. قال: عثمان رضي الله عنه منهم

[Muhammad bin Bashar told us, he said: Muhammad bin Ja`far told us, he said: Shu`bah told us, from abu Bishr, from Yusuf bin Sa`d not ibn Mahik, from Muhammad bin Hatib, he said: I heard `Ali deliver a sermon, so he mentioned this verse {Indeed, those for whom the best [reward] has preceded from Us – they are from it far removed.} [21:101], `Ali said: “`Uthman may Allah be pleased with him is from among them.”]

Muhammad bin Bashar al-Tabari’s Shaykh is Thiqah Hafiz, Ibn Ja`far is Ghandar, Yusuf is al-Jumahi, and ibn Hatib is a Sahabi. Hadith appears Sahih.

Ali tells us his opinion of why the rebellion of `Uthman was done in the first place, in al-Sunan by `Abdullah we read:

حَدَّثَنِي إِسْمَاعِيلُ أَبُو مَعْمَرٍ، نا عَبَّادُ بْنُ الْعَوَّامِ، عَنِ الْجُرَيْرِيِّ، عَنْ مُضَارِبِ بْنِ حَزْنٍ، قَالَ: قِيلَ لِعَلِيٍّ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ: ” مَا حَمَلَهُمْ عَلَى قَتْلِ عُثْمَانَ؟ قَالَ: الْحَسَدُ “

[Isma`eel abu Ma`mar told me, `Abbas bin `Awwam told me, from Sa`eed bin Iyas al-Jariri, from Mudarib bin Hazan, he said: They said to `Ali may Allah be pleased with him: “What caused them to kill `Uthman?,” He replied: “Jealousy.”]

Hadith is authentic.
