الاستفتاء

Assalamu Alaikum
My question is
1, whether those maintain enmity towards Sahaba i.e The Shi'as are Muslims?
2. And in which way the dignity of Hadhrath Abu Bakr Radhiyallahu Anhu is superior than that of Hadhrath Ali Radhiyallahu Anhu?
3. Also inform us about the Battle of Camel.
4.Please send the fatwa of Ahmad Reza Khan Shib about the Shi'as.
Jazakallah

الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

1/2, The respected Sahabas Radhiyallahu Anhum are the best and the most pure after the ranks of noble Anbiya Alaihimus Salaathu was Salaam. Many among them were given the glad tidings of Jannath in this world itself and Allah Tha’ala has proclaimed His pleasure with Sahaba e Kiraam in Qur’an e Kareem and their Eeman was made the criterion for those who come after them up to the Day of Qiyamath. Therefore whosoever maintains enmity with them is the worst among the people and manifest Fasiq and Fajir. As for the rank of Hadhrath Abu Bakr Radhiyallahu Anhu next to the rank of Rasoolullahi Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, it is established through a lot of Ahadees and also from Hadhrath Ali Radhiyallahu Anhu himself as is mentioned in the following narration.(Mishkaath page no 555). Therefore to have any doubt about this is similar to making oneself under his own deception.
3, With regard to this it will be useful to refer the book MUSHAJRAATH E SAHAABA authored by Mufthi Muhammad Shafie Usmani Rahimahullah.
4, We were unable to make access to any of his books. So it is better to refer to the Darul Iftha of the concerned School of Thought.

Allah knows best.
