Salam We all agree that who ever does not know the Imam of his time dies a death of Jahiliya (ignorance). What do our Sunni brothers think about Fatima (as)? She didn't accept Abo Bakr as her Imam, what is her position?
I was reading something and I came across this: "The first epoch of 450 years began in 638 when Caliph Umar accepted the surrender of Jerusalem and was surprised when informed that there were no Jews in the city. Over the previous century the Byzantine emperors, in collusion with the local Christians, had forced the Jews to convert. Those who did not were expelled from Jerusalem and banned from praying at the sacred Temple Wall. Jews often came surreptitiously to the neighbouring hills overlooking the sacred site to pray and gaze at the Temple wall. To rectify this injustice, Hazrat Umar encouraged 70 Jewish families to resettle in their ancestral homes, and cleared a space for them around the Temple Wall. He then personally wrote a document, clearly defining the rights of the minorities (dhimmis) in conquered lands. This edict called Ehed Umaria is today enshrined in the Mosque of Umar in the Christian Quarter of Jerusalem. To commemorate the magnanimity of the Caliph, a large area in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem is named Umar Ibn Khattab Square" I have heard about the evil actions and characteristics of the 3 Caliphs, my Sunni brothers, please accept that they were not infallible. This thread is not about arguing, I am merely surprised that I have heard so little about the good actions of the 3 Caliphs. After reading the above I immediately felt I should ask my Shia and Sunni brothers about the good qualities and actions of Abo Bakr, Omer, and Usman. While I understand that praising Sunni figures might mislead naive Shias, I think we should see the good and the bad that came from the 3 Caliphs. So far I have heard a lot of bad things and a little good things about the 3 Caliphs. This thread is about only the goodness of the 3 Caliphs, so please don't speak of negative things. I really want some learned Shia brothers to tell me what goodness the 3 Caliphs had because the repetition of hearing about Fadak etc can make some ignorant people like myself see the 3 Caliphs as pure evil. So I just want some goodness please, the material you post, please state whether it is accepted by Shia Ulema or not. please do keep posts short and snappy as the Prophet did because I like most people skim read through long posts.
Abo Bakr's son, I think I read that his name is Mohammed ibn Abo Bakr (ra) . Imam Ali (as) loved him and he kept him close. Then Imam Ali also appointed him as the governor of Egypt before he was killed by Muawiya and Amr ibn Aas. It is clear that Imam Ali loved him and Mohammed ibn Abo Bakr loved Imam Ali, but was he one of Imam Ali's Shias, like Abo Zar ibn Ghiffara and Ammar ibn Yassir. Mods please filter this post from any hate inciting speech.
