Answer:

 

Abu bakr umar killed fatima

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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Respected Sister in Islam, without an iota of a doubt, Hadrat Abu Bakr as-Siddiq (r.a.) and Hadrat Umar al-Farooq (r.a.) were amongst the Muharjirs or those noble believers and companions who migrated along with the Prophet (saws) from Makkah to Madinah. This is what the Lord All-Knowing, All-Wise has Declared regarding these noble companions in His Glorious Quran:

 

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 for Islam from Makkah to Medinah:

They (the companions who migrated from Makkah to Medina) seek Allahs Bounty and His Goodwill, and are ever ready to succor Allah and His Messenger. They indeed are the truthful.

 

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

Allah was well pleased with those Muhajirs (emigrants from Makkah) and Ansaar (helpers from Madinah) who were the first to respond to the invitation of the Faith, and with those also, who followed them in their righteous conduct, and they too, were well pleased with Allah. Allah has got ready for them Gardens, underneath which, canals flow, and they will abide therein for ever. This is the Greatest Success.

 

It is indeed unfortunate and a pity that some misguided people have chosen to invent lies and accuse some amongst the most eminent companions of the Noble Prophet (saws) of an evil as grave as the murder of the beloved daughter of the Prophet (saws) companions whom none other than Allah and His Messenger (saws) have themselves chosen to Honor in this world and in the Hereafter! Allah has specifically mentioned that He is pleased with the early Muhajirs and the Ansaars and He Himself has called them the Truthful and has prepared eternal Gardens of Bliss for them.

 

Muslim history records that the noble daughter of the Prophet (saws), Hadrat Fatimah (r.a.) binte Mohamed (saws) died a natural death six months after the death of the Prophet (saws).

 

It is absolutely inconceivable and absurd (to say the least!) for one who sincerely fears Allah and the Last Day to accuse such eminent and noble companions as Hadrat Abu Bakr (r.a.) and Hadrat Umar (r.a.) of the crime of murder.leave alone the murder of the beloved daughter of the Prophet (saws)!!!

 

Allah is our witness sister, there is not even an iota of truth in such malicious and baseless accusations!!!

 

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,
