And likewise i see the ansar. Abubakr asked can i also see? The prophet (sws) said , “yes”. Abubakr asked how? The prophet did masah with his hands on abubakr’s eyes.

Imam Ali was asked, “Why was abu bakr chosen for the caliphate?” He replied, “We saw that Abu bakr was the most suitable for this affair amongst the people.

Imam Ali reads the funeral of Hazrat Umer : “I want from Allah to accompain you with your two friends RasoolAllah (sws) and Siddique .

Ali says in praise of Uthman , “There is nothing that we know and you are ignorant of that. I can not point out any matter that you are ignorant of. You know all what we know. We were not better than you in any case that we would inform you. And we were not unique in any case that we would inform you of that. You also saw what we saw; and heared what we heared; you were and are the companion of the prophet like we are. And Ibn abi Kahafa and Umer ibn Khatab were not better than you in practice. And you were nearer to the prophet; you became the son-in law of the prophet while they didn’t. “ Nejul Balagha, volume 2, page 232 8.

Allah and His Messenger have conferred the highest status on the fisrt two Caliphs, Abu Bakr (may Allah bless his soul) and Umar (May Allah be pleased with him).
