Imam Aliโ€™s view on Abu Bakr & Omar Part1 [Scanned books]

Opponents of the Ahl al-Bayt (as) claim that the Amir al-Mo’minin; ImamAli (pbuh) had a nice and friendly relationship with the three caliphs, and to prove this myth, they used lies such as Umm Kulthum’s marriage to Umar, naming the children of Imam Ali (pbuh) after the caliphs, and so on…

However, we have already given a detailed and conclusive answer to these false Shubahat ;But this time and in this article, we try to expose the view point and opinion of Amir al-Mo’minin (pbuh) about the caliphs, from the most Sahih Sunni books, and and let our dear readers to judge by themselves.

According to the authentic narrations of al-Sindi, which are mentioned in the most authentic Sunni books, Amir al-Mo’minin (pbuh) has never had friendly relations with the three caliphs; Rather, he considered them as liars, Sinners, Deceivers, Traitors, Oppressors,Tyrants and so on..

Before presenting the evidence, we note that our aim is not to insult anyone’s sanctity; Rather, it is only to quote from Sunni books, with the Sahih source and Isnad. And we leave the judgment to our dear Shia and Sunni readers.

Muslim Neyshabouri, in his book ‘Sahih’, narrates a long narration from Omar ibn al-Khattab who said to Amir al-Mo’minin (PBUH):

After the death of the Messenger of God (may God bless him and grant him peace), Abu Bakr said: I am the Wali (successor) of the Messenger of God. Abu Bakr said: The Messenger of God said: We do not inherit anything, what remains is a charity and you introduced him as a liar, a sinner, a deceiver and a traitor, while God knows that Abu Bakr is truthful and religious. And he was a follower of the truth. After the death of Abu Bakr, I became the Wali (successor) of the Prophet and Abu Bakr, and again, you two called me a traitor, a deceitful liar, and a sinner

Then, at the end of the narration, [mar ibn al-Khattab makes Amir al-Mo’minin and Abbas to admit:

The same narration has been narrated in other Sunni books with the interpretation of “oppressor and tyrant” and even Albani the wahhabi, has also considered it as being Sahih

Al-Albani, Muhammad Nasser al-Din (d. 1420 AH), Al-Tasliqat al-Hasan al-Sahih ibn Hanban, vol. 9, pp. 319-320.

At the end of the narration, Al-Albani states that the source of this narration is Sahih.

The same narration is also mentioned in the authentic book of Ibn Habban with the research of Shoaib Al-Arnaout the Wahhabi, and this fanatical Wahhabi has also admitted that this source is Sahih.
According to these two narrations, Amir al-Mo’minin (PBUH) believed that Abu Bakr and Omar were “liars, evildoers, deceiver, traitors, oppressors and tyrants.”

The interesting fact is that in Sahih Bukhari, these traits are considered as characteristics of hypocrites. Muhammad ibn Ismail writes in his book Sahih Bukhari:

It is narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of God (PBUH) said: The signs of a hypocrite are three things: When he speaks, he lies. When he makes a promise, he breaks it, and whenever he is entrusted, he betrays.

It is narrated from Abdullah Ibn Umar that the Messenger of God (PBUH) said: There are four characteristics that if all of them are in a person, he is a pure hypocrite, and whenever one of these characteristics is in a person, he has a characteristic of hypocrites until he abandons it. Those charestristics are:
When he is entrusted, he betrays. When he speaks, he lies. When he makes a commitment, he deceives. And whenever he is at enmity with someone, he oppresses.

Sahih al-Bukhari, The Book of Faith, Bab al-‘Alam al-Manafiq, H 33 and 34.

You can see that all the above attributes that were mentioned by the Messenger of God about the hypocrites and even more so, according to Amir al-Mo’minin, Imam Ali (PBUH)’s belief existed in Abu Bakr and Omar


Now our question from the awakened consciences is, How is it possible that Amir al-Mo’minin (PBUH) makes his daughter marry someone, whom he considers him as a “Liar, a Sinner, a Deceiver, a Traitor, an Oppressor and a Tyrant” ?!

How is it possible that Amir al-Mo’minin (PBUH) choose the names of his beloved children after the names of those whom he believes that are have collected all the moral attributes of hypocrites together in them? !!!

Good Luck
