In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Most Merciful

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

Answer

We 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.

 Best regards

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of Creations
