اِنَّ اللّٰهَ مَعَ الَّذِیْنَ اتَّقَوْا وَّالَّذِیْنَ هُمْ مُّحْسِنُوْنَ
Indeed, Allah is with those who fear Him and those who are doers of good.
9. Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala sent His tranquillity upon Sayyidina Abu Bakr radiya Llahu ‘anhu. And Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala only sends His tranquillity upon those who have true iman and strong Islam and upon whom is Allah’s subhanahu wa ta ‘ala grace. Proof for this tranquillity is
فَاَنْزَلَ اللّٰهُ سَکِیْنَتَهعَلَیْهِ
And Allah sent down his tranquillity upon him.
10. By pondering over these verses, the lofty status of Sayyidina Abu Bakr al Siddiq radiya Llahu ‘anhu is learnt because these verses were revealed to inspire and warn those who were lax in going for jihad. Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala explained to these persons, warned them and declared His independence. Firstly, Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala explained to them by exposing the insignificance of this world followed by warning them of the descent of punishment and replacing them with another nation. At the end, Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala mentions His independence and His Rasul’s disinterest. To substantiate this independence and disinterest, the example of Sayyidina Abu Bakr radiya Llahu ‘anhu was presented coupled with mention of his loyalty and love. Accordingly, the level of his truthfulness, friendship and companionship can be gaged from the appreciation of his help and friendship by Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala and His Rasul salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam that Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala is boasting about it to inspire and warn others.
I have briefly listed the virtues and merits of Sayyidina Abu Bakr radiya Llahu ‘anhu deduced from these verses. I will now enumerate the objections of the Shia coupled with their answers. Their objections are so ridiculous and silly; to refute them is like presenting proofs to dispute with the person who denies the rising of the sun in broad daylight. Nonetheless, we are forced to answer in compliance to the statement of the seal of the muhaddithin:
چوں بناۓ کلام بر اصول گروہے نہادہ است نا چارزمام اختیار بدست آنہا دادہ ہر جاکہ کشیدہ برند میر و دو بہر رنگ کہ رنگیں کںد می شود
Since the foundation of this arguments rest on the principles of one sect, thus the reigns are in their hands; they may pull wherever they desire and colour in whichever colour they wish.
Nevertheless, we hope that people with sound disposition will have a fair look at those objections and consider the doggedness and stubbornness of the Shia scholars and mujtahidin whose hearts have been veiled and whose minds have been cloaked with such deep rooted enmity that they deny such categorical statements and present fallacious interpretations to substantiate their denial of the virtue of the most virtuous Sahabi radiya Llahu ‘anhu.
و ها انا اشرع فى بيان هفواتهم
I begin now listing their drivel.
