  1. Brother, OK, I agree with you just for the sake of argument that Abu Bakr was not elected by the prophet, then how he became the Caliph? Off course the answer is that he became the caliph by the agreement of all the other companions, right? So what is the problem then?
  2. (bismillah) (wasalam) The Hadith you quoted is out of context brother. Here is the complete narration: Bukhari :: Book 4 :: Volume 53 :: Hadith 325 Narrated 'Aisha: (mother of the believers) After the death of Allah 's Apostle Fatima the daughter of Allah's Apostle asked Abu Bakr As-Siddiq to give her, her share of inheritance from what Allah's Apostle had left of the Fai (i.e. booty gained without fighting) which Allah had given him. Abu Bakr said to her, "Allah's Apostle said, 'Our property will not be inherited, whatever we (i.e. prophets) leave is Sadaqa (to be used for charity)." Fatima, the daughter of Allah's Apostle got angry and stopped speaking to Abu Bakr, and continued assuming that attitude till she died. Fatima remained alive for six months after the death of Allah's Apostle. She used to ask Abu Bakr for her share from the property of Allah's Apostle which he left at Khaibar, and Fadak, and his property at Medina (devoted for charity). Abu Bakr refused to give her that property and said, "I will not leave anything Allah's Apostle used to do, because I am afraid that if I left something from the Prophet's tradition, then I would go astray." (Later on) Umar gave the Prophet's property (of Sadaqa) at Medina to 'Ali and 'Abbas, but he withheld the properties of Khaibar and Fadak in his custody and said, "These two properties are the Sadaqa which Allah's Apostle used to use for his expenditures and urgent needs. Now their management is to be entrusted to the ruler." (Az-Zuhrl said, "They have been managed in this way till today.") Now it is clear that you took the sentence out of context and posted it to look more bad, if you had posted the complete narration, it would not look so bad. So it is clear from the narration as to why Abu Bakr (ra) refused to give the property to Fatima (peace be upon her), I do not need to explain it. I will answer your rest of the post very soon inshallah.
  3. The report that I posted is I think is reported by most historians and is authentic. Now your demand of a specific hadith is not valid. There may be many ways by which prophet could make a person Imaam, by specifically saying or by implying. So prophet did this by implication. He told Abu Bakr (ra) to be the imaam who will lead the people in the prayer. Similarly, Abu Bakr (ra) was chosen to read the people as Caliph with the same order, why did not the prophet bring any other companion to be the imaam? Even thought there were all the companions present.
  4. This is not a question in relation to the topic at hand. You cannot disprove a fact with illogical arguments.
  5. The Prophet was suffering from a disease, came to mosque and asked Abu Bakr to be the Imaam, while Ali, and other companions (pbut) were present there in the congregation. Is this not enough to say that prophet did choose abu bakr (ra).
  6. Hazrat Abu Bakr (ra) was the best friend of Prophet Muhammad (S) and he was chosen by the prophet himself to be the first leader of Muslims after prophet's death. So Abu Bakr (ra) being the first Caliph was the decision of the prophte and hence the decision of Allah. Secondly, prophet said that there will be 73 sects in my Ummah and everyone will go to hell but just one, Sahabah asked, "who", the prophet said, the one who will follow me and my companions. And when we talk about companions, the list starts with the 4 rightly guided caliphs, peace be upon them all. After all these, how can any one think that the Companions were disobedient? Never.
  7. So what is your point? It does not explain my question though.
  8. I read your link, just confirming, yes or no?
  9. Is ghadir the last sermon of the prophet called Hijjat ul Wida?
  10. What is ghadir khum? And how you know that they did not attend the burial?
  11. Oh so you were sarcastic there! Regarding burial of the prophet, how they were disobedient? It was a clear decision, a person said that he heard prophet that prophets are buried at the place were they die, so respectively, the prophet was buried at the place where he died, what is the disobedience there? I am surprised that how can some people even think about some great Sahabas to be disobedient?
  12. Then what? did they become disobedient? How?
  13. Who were those companions (according to you) who were not obedient to Prophet (S) after his death? And what is the evidence?
  14. OK, so it means that writer is wrong and Shia do believe in Qur'an being the exact word of God. Now, do shias believe in Companions of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), the Sahabah (ra)
  15. The book is "Ikhtilaaf-e-Ummat aur Siraat-e-Mustaqim" by Maulana Muhammad Yousuf Ludhianwi. It is in Urdu.
