Answer:

 

Can one curse revile the companions

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 100:

100 The vanguard (of Islam), the first of the Muhajirs (those believers who forsook their homes and migrated with the Prophet (saws) from Makkah to Madinah) and of the Ansaars (those believers in Madinah who gave them aid) and (also) those who follow them in (all) good deeds: well pleased is Allah with them as are they with Him: for them hath He prepared Gardens under which rivers flow to dwell therein for ever: that is the Supreme Felicity.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 59 Surah Hashr verse 8, in appreciation of the early companions of the Holy Prophet (saws) who migrated from Makkah to Madinah with him; and Allah is our witness brother, Hadrat Abu Baqr, Hadrat Umar, Hadrat Uthman, Hadrat Ali, etc. were definitely amongst them:

They (the companions who migrated from Makkah to Medina) seek Allahs bounty and His goodwill, and are ever ready to succour Allah and His Messenger. They indeed are the Truthful.




 

Allah Subhanah Himself Declares in His Glorious Quran that the first of those who believed, and the first of those who forsook their homes and migrated with the Prophet (saws) from Makkah to Madinah, and the first of those believers in Madinah who gave them help and welcomed them.well pleased is Allah with them, and He has prepared Gardens for them under which rivers flow to dwell therein for ever!

 

My dear and beloved brother in Islam, history has recorded that companions of the Prophet (saws) like Hadrat Abu Baqr, Hadrat Umar, Hadrat Uthmaan, Hadrat Ali, Hadrat Bilaal, Hadrat Ammar, etc. were amongst the earliest reverts to Islam in Makkah and they forsook their homes and migrated with the Prophet (saws) from Makkah to Madinah.

 

The curse of Allah is reserved for the disbelievers, polytheists, and the hypocrites.how can one who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day even think of reviling or pronouncing the curse of Allah Subhanah on those whom Allah Subhanah Himself Declares in His Glorious Quran that: well pleased is Allah with them as are they with Him: for them hath He prepared Gardens under which rivers flow to dwell therein for ever: that is the Supreme Felicity.

 

Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4632 Narrated by Sa'id ibn Zayd

AbdurRahman ibn al-Akhnas said that when he was in the mosque, a man mentioned Ali (r.a.). So Sa'id ibn Zayd got up and said: I bear witness to the Messenger of Allah (saws) that I heard him (saws) say: Ten persons will go to Paradise: The Prophet (saws) will go to Paradise! AbuBakr will go to Paradise! Umar will go to Paradise! Uthman will go to Paradise! Ali will go to Paradise! Talhah will go to Paradise! Az-Zubayr ibn al-Awwam will go to paradise! Sa'd ibn Malik will go to Paradise! and Abdur Rahman ibn Awf will go to Paradise! If you wish, I can mention the tenth. The people asked: Who is he? So he (Hadrat Said ibn Zayd) kept silence. They again asked: Who is he? He (Hadrat Said ibn Zayd) replied: He is Sa'id ibn Zayd.

 

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 5.18 Narrated by Abu Huraira

I heard Allah's Messenger (saws) saying, "Anybody who spends a pair of something in Allah's Cause will be called from all the gates of Paradise, 'O Allah's slave! This is good.' He who is amongst those who pray will be called from the gate of the prayer (in Paradise) and he who is from the people of Jihad will be called from the gate of Jihad, and he who is from those who give in charity (i.e. Zakat) will be called from the gate of charity, and he who is amongst those who observe fast will be called from the gate of fasting, the gate of Raiyan." Abu Bakr said, "He who is called from all those gates will need nothing," He added, "Will anyone be called from all those gates, O Allah's Messenger (saws)?" He (saws) said, "Yes, and I hope you will be among those, O Abu Bakr."

 

Your Question: can we say lanat on the first converts of islam i.e abubaker,usman

Sahih Muslim HadithH 6167 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah

Allah's Messenger (saws) said: Do not revile my Companions! Do not revile my Companions! By Him in Whose Hand is my life, if one amongst you would have spent as much gold as Uhud it would not amount to as much as one mudd (a small measurement of food) on behalf of one of them, or even half of it!

 

Leave alone pronounce the curse or laanah of Allah on eminent and close companions of the Prophet (saws) like Hadrat Abu Bakr, Umar, and Uthmaan.it is absolutely against the commands and guidance of the Messenger of Allah (saws) to ever revile even the weakest of any of his noble companions! Such is the rank and status of the noble companions of the Prophet (saws) in the Sight of Allah, that even if one were to spend as much gold as the mountain of Uhud in the Cause of Allah, it would not equal in merit in the Supreme Scales of Allah to even a small measurement of food which his noble companions spent for Islam!

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 5.2 Narrated by Imran bin Husain

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "The best of my followers are those living in my generation (i.e. his companions), and then (2nd best are) those who will follow them (the first generation), then (the 3rd best are) those who follow them."

 

Allah is our witness it is nothing but ignorance and absolute misguidance to revile, rebuke, or curse any believer who has professed belief in Allah and His Messenger (saws); leave alone pronouncing the curse of Allah on such eminent and close companions of the Prophet (saws) like Hadrat Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthmaan, etc., especially when Allah Subhanah has Himself Declared that He is well pleased with them and has prepared Gardens for them to dwell therein for ever!

 

If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

Burhan
