How Was Abubakr Superior To Imam 'ali (as)?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

(salam) everyone,

I have always wondered how Sunnis somehow managed to conclude that Abubakr was superior to Imam 'Ali (as) even though the latter was ABSOLUTELY purified by Allah while the former remained unpurified till his death.

Do Sunnis have any logical justifications for this weird claim of theirs? I am yet to come across any.

Thanks.

Theres a hadith which Sunnis quote alot, but im not sure of its source. It goes as thus:

'When the Prophet (as) ascended to Jannah (Israa we Mi3raj), Allah (swt) asked the Prophet (as) to tell Abu Bakr that he has accepted him, and to ask Abu Bakr if he has accepted Him. When the Prophet (as) conveyed the message to Abu Bakr, Abu Bakr was embaressed, and said "I accept you, I accept you".'

When i heard it my reaction was 'wow, astaghfirullah! Who the hell is Abu Bakr for Allah (swt) to seek his acceptence!'

It really is Kufr to the max, but they seem to like the Hadith alot.

From what I understand, the superiority is simply because the hadith in Bukhari say so.

Rather than looking at the achievements and accomplishments of Abu Bakr after his conversion during the life of the Holy Prophet, the various hadith which speak about Abu Bakr's praise are taken at face value and exempt from any form of scrutiny and questioning.

Never been given that hadith above by any sunni/salafi to justify abu bakr's position. They seems to have deduced this for want of a better word by the simple fact that the community chose - or accepted - him as first caliph. And they have kept this view in order of the Caliphs until Imam Ali a.s.

Age as said above plays a part too, but I suspect if Imam Ali had been chosen first then the accepted view would obviously be Imam Ali is superior.

And their intrepretation of that ayah is different too...

and I wonder how Abu Bakr is called Siddiq (the most truthful) when he is not even mentioned in the Sunni Tafsir of Mubahala, albeit Imam Ali (as) is considered the self of Prophet (pbuh) along with Fatima (as) and her sons to curse the liars.

This is what someone on my Facebook put up in one of his notes.

It was narrated that Abdullah bin Shaqiq said: "I said to Aisha (radi Allahu anha), 'Which of the (Prophet's) Companions was most beloved to him?' She said, 'Abu Bakr.' I said, 'Then which of them?' She said, 'Umar.' I said, 'Then which of them?' She said, 'Abu Ubaidah.' [ibn Majah - graded Sahih; Tirmidhi]

This hadith affirms the superiority of the three venerable Sahabah mentioned in it, for the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) had extreme love for all three of them. By the same token they were also loved by Allah (subhana wa ta'ala).

It was narrated that Abdullah bin Salimah said: "I heard Ali (radi Allahu anhu) say, 'The best of people after the Messenger of Allah is Abu Bakr, and the best of people after Abu Bakr is Umar (radi Allahu anhuma).'"

Thus Ali (radi Allahu anhu) also believed in the superiority of Abu Bakr and Umar (radi Allahu anhuma). Any statement to the contrary imputed to Ali (radi Allahu anhu) is pure fabrication.

Any thoughts?

Well, it is obviously a fabricated Hadith. Abu Bakr, Umar can never be the best of people after the Holy Prophet (saw) when they tried to burn the Holy House of Fatima (as) and were the cause of her anguish and her death, they usurped rights, they questioned the prophet on various occasions. They made various errors in judgement.

Wasn't it Umar who used to say "if it were not for Ali (as) , I would have PERISHED". Who do you think is more superior? It's quite clear....

Hazrath Abu Bakar [ra] was a great companion. Nobody would dispute on his status. Was he superior than Hazrath Ali [ra]??? The answer is NO! Do Sunnis have any logical and sensible justification for their claim that Hazrath Abu Bakar [ra] was Afzalul-Khalak and Afzalul-Bashar after the Prophet [pbuh]?????????????? The answer is NO! It's just a blind claim with no basis what so ever.

:yaali:

Ya Ali!!

This is how I responded.

I would like to propose Imam Ali's (as) superiority using the verse of purification and how Allah defines superiority.

In the Holy Quran verse 49:13, Allah says:

[Yusuf Ali]

O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).

http://quran.com/49/13

From this verse, we understand that the most honoured (and hence, superior) in the eyes of Allah is the most righteous person.

It is accepted knowledge that the absence of darkness means light and the absence of fear implies courage. Using that notion, we can conclude that the absence of sin denotes piety and righteousness.

If you look at verse 33:33 of the Holy Quran, Allah says:

[Yusuf Ali]

And stay quietly in your houses, and make not a dazzling display, like that of the former Times of Ignorance; and establish regular Prayer, and give regular Charity; and obey Allah and His Messenger. And Allah only wishes to remove all abomination from you, ye members of the Family, and to make you pure and spotless.

http://quran.com/33/33

The aforemention verse was revealved for 2 groups of people. The first group was the wives of the Prophet, and the second group, the 'AHLULBAYT' or the family of the Prophet (pbuh) (excluding his wives). When Allah says that he wishes to purify the family of the Prophet, it is logical to assume that He is referring to their spiritual purity, and not physical (He isn't giving them a bath).

Now if we look in Sahih al-Bukhari, the Virtues of Companions, Hadith number 5955, we can see who the verse was revealed for:

'A'isha reported that Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) went out one norning wearing a striped cloak of the black camel's hair that there came Hasan b. 'Ali. He wrapped him under it, then came Husain and he wrapped him under it along with the other one (Hasan). Then came Fatima and he took her under it, then came 'Ali and he also took him under it and then said: Allaah only desires to take away any uncleanliness from you, O people of the household, and purify you (thorough purifying).

http://www.salafipublications.com/sps/smm/sahihmuslim.cfm?scn=dsphadeeth&HadeethID=5955

Also, have a look at the following hadith to confirm that none of the wives were included and who the Prophet (pbuh) included in his Ahlulbayt/family and who the Prophet considered to be a part of his family:

http://www.salafipublications.com/sps/smm/sahihmuslim.cfm?scn=dsphadeeth&HadeethID=5923

http://www.salafipublications.com/sps/smm/sahihmuslim.cfm?scn=dsphadeeth&HadeethID=5915 (refer to the last bit as that's the relevant bit)

In light of the hadith and the verse of purification (33:33), we can say that the most honourable of people are the 5 within the cloak (which included Imam Ali (as)). Since Islam doesn't have a concept of SUPERIORITY of one human over another unless it has to do with PIETY and RIGHTEOUSNESS (49:13), I would like to conclude that between Abu Bakr and Imam Ali (as), Imam Ali (as) has to be more superior because it is his piety and righteousness that Allah testifies to in the mentioned verse.

There is another angle to come to the same conclusion but for the purpose of this discussion, I think this should suffice.

I think u nailed it ...infact abubakr inaugural address clearly says that he is NOT the most superior ammongst them, this was no doubt his humility but also a reflection of the division in the community at that time.I really dont think that list of most superior sahaba was as clearly thought out in those days as it is today

How can abu bakr be superior to h.ali(r.a.) 1)on gadir h.ali was made moula over abu bakr.2)to say he was father of aysha and that she was favourite wife is a lie due you expect prophet would do partialolty and read quran sura 66 tahreem reveld for aysha disobidence and if she was favourite wife why she was jealous of other wife .3)hadis in praise of warlord abu bakr narrated by his insane child aysha who accorting to bukhari at age of 17 play with dolls. 4)due you ever think any indian will write about flaw of gandhi similarly is sunni n abu bakr

First of All you can't just compare Hazrat Ali with Abu bakar. Hazrat is one of the Ahlybayt. The pure ones and the special ones Abu bakar is not even near. 

Yes you can surely compare omar with Abu bakar or Usman but not Hazrat Ali don't be a fool. HAZRAT Ali is maula of every Muslim. He is special.

Generally Sunnis say that it is ijma , where as it is not.  First of all by definition of Ijma  , it will not be considered as ijma if there is opposition to it.  Secondly , just because four fiqh Imams say something and agree does not mean ijma of ummat .  Thirdly Ijma needs to have solid direct evidence . 

 I have not seen any conclusive evidence so far .  

Also , it must be noted that many scholars are afraid to say the truth that they consider Imam Ali as superior because they would be labelled as shia. 

If we look at history we find let alone claiming Ali RA to be superior , even taking name of Ali RA was prohibited during rule of banu Ummayah and even more during banu Abbas.  Children with names of Ali were killed. Who will talk about Ali RA ? 

After the propaganda by Banu Ummayah against Ali RA , its a Miracle that his name survived, they did everything possible to curb and malign his name. Even Iblis is not cursed from Mimbars on friday and Eid , Imam Ali was.  For sixty years , whole generations grow up in that time. Naturally people would think that a person who is cursed from Mimbars so often must be a bad person.

I guess because Abu Bakr was congratulated in Saqifah of Bani Saidah when he is inaugurated as 1st khaliph by Iblis l.a. himself. So it made him superior than Imam Ali a.s.

That's true, Iblis was the first person to give bay'ah to Abu Bakr. Abu Bakr is the golden calf of this ummah and Umar is the Samiri of this ummah. This nation followed their Samiri and worshipped their golden calf instead of holding onto the wilayah of Amirul Mumineen (as). Whenever there is a virtue of Amirul Mumineen (as), they have to invent some for shaykhayn. Like how Ali (as) is the al faruq and siddiqul akbar but they try to give these virtues to shaykhayn.

Oh Allah send blessing on Muhammad and the family of Muhammad and curse the two idols of Quraish....

Brother , 

First hadeeth says  that according to Aisha RA  ,  Abu  bakar   and Umar were two most loved people of prophet Muhammad SAW. This is her opinion.  Because the third person she mentions , that companion name also many people probably do not know.  Because the general sunni believe is that the tarteeb of Khilafat is tarteeb of rank . 

Another point is that this is about the companions , not ahle bayat. My personal view is that Prophet loved  Fatima AS the most 

Now coming to second hadeeth , Ali AS is speaking with Modesty.  That hadeeth is in Bukhari as well. tell that guy posting there to quote the whole hadeeth , it says Ali As says that I am an ordinary Muslim. Does he believe Ali AS to be ordinary Muslim ? 

Second question for him is that in Bukhari there is a hadeeth where Muhammad SAW says do not think that I am better than Yunus AS .  Does that guy take these words literally ?  We all know that it is out of modesty .

Just baffled how much we stoop down to levels where we become hate machines. We revert to criticism.....hate speech....defamation..character assasination ..... we become judges to question Allahs wisdom and Rasools selection.

Muhemmed SAW only taught us love......and thats the only thing we lack today. Love is from heart.....it defies logics, teaches us to respect, it teaches to bring the best out of people.....it combines....it elevates....

Hate needz logics.....it divides....it compels to disrespect. Did Rasool and his Companions and lovers hate anyone.....you people know the answer.

He is RAHMATULIL ALAMEEN.......by this virtue he cant hate....he just loves......and we are His followers.....

Show your respect to those we follow. The actual blasphemy is to look and act different from your beloved. If you love prophet and claim to love Ali.....show through your character......dont revert to words, actions and approach that make you hate machines always trying to degrade personalities which were Rasools companions....may it be anyone. Its not about people....its about prophets choice and relation that is of prime focus.

The last sermon categorically states please become ONE........and shame on us that we ONLY talk about divisions. 

Please spread love. When a mother loves her child she totally igores the weaknesses....she only see out of her hearts sight. Thats love.......

We should ignore each others weaknesses. If someone thinks he is superior to others....he should be thankful to Allah.....and demonstrate the character of his own role model.

We claim we are Saadat.....and act like none.

How will this ummah become one if we just keep on trying to prove a point that i belong to the best sect and all others are jahannumis?

Grow up please and think beyond trivial matters. Look with your hearts eyes. There is sooooo much to respect and love.

 

Thanx.

Hmmm, What about the holy horses mentioned in Qura'n? Ref. Verses 100:1-5

وَالْعَادِيَاتِ ضَبْحًا {1}

 I swear by the runners breathing pantingly,

فَالْمُورِيَاتِ قَدْحًا {2}

Then those that produce fire striking,

فَالْمُغِيرَاتِ صُبْحًا {3}

Then those that make raids at morn,

فَأَثَرْنَ بِهِ نَقْعًا {4}

Then thereby raise dust,

فَوَسَطْنَ بِهِ جَمْعًا {5}

Then rush thereby upon an assembly:

How would you deal with that holy horse if you find one? Allah (s.w.t) is swearing by them in Quran.

Suicide bombing is not derived from wahabism. Its a tool used by the evil powers on people who are so desperate for revenging their loved ones whom they lost in whatever past events. Like for e.g in Iraq, What you shias did to the sunnis by initiating a purge after getting baghdad in return for a warm welcome to the Western powers. Thats what we call karma. Still much more to come. Treachery, backstabbing  are the qualities deeply rooted inside the Rafidha which muslims have witnessed throughout the history.

 

Btw, I have seen you bringing this absurd arguments against salafi muslims everytime we point out the evils in shiasm? Is this your response to our question or is it that u r just a troll?

This thread is very informative. Its also highlights the importance of controlling this cult on timely basis or else it may lead to a point where iblis may have to kill himself.

Shrines have no place in Islam. Your own books of hadith include narrations forbidding erection of buildings over graves. Study your own religion before arguing. Like i have always said, its the result of poor shiite education which makes them hardcore jahils when it comes to religious matters.

حدثنا محمد بن موسى بن المتوكل قال حدثنا علي بن إبراهيم عن أبيه عن حماد عن حريز عن زرارة عن أبي جعفر ع قالَ قُلْتُ لَهُ الصَّلَاةُ بَيْنَ الْقُبُورِ قَالَ بَيْنَ خَلَلِهَا وَ لَا تَتَّخِذْ شَيْئاً مِنْهَا قِبْلَةً فَإِنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ص نَهَى عَنْ ذَلِكَ وَ قَالَ لَا تَتَّخِذُوا قَبْرِي قِبْلَةً وَ لَا مَسْجِداً فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَعَنَ الَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا قُبُورَ أَنْبِيَائِهِمْ مَسَاجِدَ

 

Do NOT take my grave as a qiblah or as a masjid, indeed Allah curses those who took graves of prophets as masaajid (mosques)".

Answer lies in the next sentence. Please read it.

No....Muawiya was not amongst close companions.

Yes we may have difference in opinions.....i believe the 4 yaars were close companions. However Ahlul Bayt are even closer and dearer.

Brother.....we my have certain differences.....some minute some huge......but that should not make us enemies yaar. We all have One Allah...One Prophet....One Quran......One objective.

Lets talk about similarities and not differences......there will always be.....

Lets talk about heart and not mind......mind asks for logics....which are never enough to satiate.

Lets talk about love and not hatre......hatre contaminates and divides....love only sees good deeds and purifies. 

Thats our deen...full of love.....

Spread love and try once to ignore each others weaknesses. When we can ignore these in our kids.....why not all kalima reciters.

Lets not try to be judgemental and may it be with THOSE who have attained the top stature.....lets be students and not try to be teachers.

Believe me......it can change the world.

And should you ask them, Who created the heavens and the earth? They would most certainly say: Allah. Say: Have you then considered that what you call upon besides Allah, would they, if Allah desire to afflict me with harm, be the removers of His harm, or (would they), if Allah desire to show me mercy, be the withholders of His mercy? Say: Allah is sufficient for me; on Him do the reliant rely. [39:38]

And who is in greater error than he who calls besides Allah upon those that will not answer him till the day of resurrection and they are heedless of their call? And when men are gathered together they shall be their enemies, and shall be deniers of their worshipping (them). [47:5-6]

Surely those whom you call on besides Allah are in a state of subjugation like yourselves; therefore call on them, then let them answer you if you are truthful. And do not call besides Allah on that which can neither benefit you nor harm you, for if you do then surely you will in that case be of the unjust. And if Allah should afflict you with harm, then there is none to remove it but He; and if He intends good to you there is none to repel His grace; He brings it to whom He pleases of His servants; and He is the Forgiving, the Merciful. [10:106-107]

Sorry ....
