What ‘Alee Said About Aboo Bakr And ‘Umar

‘Alee Ibn Abee Taalib said regarding Aboo Bakr:

“He was the best of those who remained; he was more merciful than anyone else, more kind, more pious and senior in terms of age and Islam. He led us as the Messenger of Allaah (saw) had led us until he died like that, then ‘Umar was appointed in charge after him…

He conducted affairs according to the way of the Prophet (saw) and his companion (Aboo Bakr), following in their footsteps as the camel calf follows its mother… Who do you know who is like them? May Allaah (swt) have mercy on them, and may Allaah (swt) help us to follow their path.

No one can attain what they attained except by following in their footsteps and loving them.

So whoever loves me, let him love them (Aboo Bakr and ‘Umar) Whoever does not love them hates me, and I have nothing to do with him.”

[Sharh I’tiqaad Ahl As-Sunnah Wal-Jamaa’ah, Al-Laalikaa’ee, p. 4456]
