Question:Dear Dr. Nabulsi
Some people say that Abu Bakr and Umar were bad people and disbelievers. What should we say to such people?Thank you
AnswerWe should tell them that Abu Bakr and Umar (may Allah be pleased with them) are two great respected companions of prophet Muhamad (PBUH) and the prophet (PBUH) said: (( When my companions are mentioned stop talking)). It may even be an act of disbelief to speak badly about them.
