Why didn’t Sahaba oppose triple caliphs? {Including pictures of the book}

Preface

Wahhabis and Sunni make dubious In the matter of usurping the caliphate of commander of the faithful Ali [AS] and assaulting the house of Hadrat “Fatimah” [AS], they say:

If the caliphate and succession of messenger of god [PBUH] was commander of the faithful Ali [AS]’s inalienable right or his house was assaulted, so why did sahaba Prophet [PBUH] those who raised in his doctrine not defend commander of the faithful Ali [AS]’s right and assaulting the house of Hadarat “Fatimah” [AS]?

Following narrative written in Sunni main resource “Sahih Bukhari” says the response of this question.

“Muslim Nishapuri” writes in his “Sahih” book:

1847 وحدثني محمد بن سَهْلِ بن عَسْكَرٍ التَّمِيمِيُّ حدثنا يحيي بن حَسَّانَ ح وحدثنا عبد اللَّهِ بن عبد الرحمن الدَّارِمِيُّ أخبرنا يحيي وهو بن حَسَّانَ حدثنا مُعَاوِيَةُ يَعْنِي بن سَلَّامٍ حدثنا زَيْدُ بن سَلَّامٍ عن أبي سَلَّامٍ قال قال حُذَيْفَةُ بن الْيَمَانِ قلت يا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنَّا كنا بِشَرٍّ فَجَاءَ الله بِخَيْرٍ فَنَحْنُ فيه فَهَلْ من وَرَاءِ هذا الْخَيْرِ شَرٌّ؟ قال: نعم. قلت: هل وَرَاءَ ذلك الشَّرِّ خَيْرٌ؟ قال: نعم. قلت: فَهَلْ وَرَاءَ ذلك الْخَيْرِ شَرٌّ؟ قال: نعم. قلت: كَيْفَ؟ قال: يَكُونُ بَعْدِي أَئِمَّةٌ لَا يَهْتَدُونَ بِهُدَايَ ولا يَسْتَنُّونَ بِسُنَّتِي وَسَيَقُومُ فِيهِمْ رِجَالٌ قُلُوبُهُمْ قُلُوبُ الشَّيَاطِينِ في جُثْمَانِ إِنْسٍ. قال: قلت: كَيْفَ أَصْنَعُ يا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إن أَدْرَكْتُ ذلك؟ قال: تَسْمَعُ وَتُطِيعُ لِلْأَمِيرِ وَإِنْ ضُرِبَ ظَهْرُكَ وَأُخِذَ مَالُكَ فَاسْمَعْ وَأَطِعْ.

“Huzayfah bin Yaman” says: I said to messenger of god:

We were in evil and god brought good to us and we’re now in good, will this good be followed by evil? He said: Yes it will, I asked: will that evil be followed by good? He said: Yes that will, I asked: will that good be followed by evil? He said: Yes that will, I said: how is it? He answered: after me, leaders will govern you whom weren’t guided by my guidance and won’t practice my tradition and soon men become ruler amongst them whose hearts are devils’ hearts but in the resemblance of humans. I said: what would I do if I see that time? He answered: listen and obey the ruler, even if he whips you gets your property.

“Muslim Nishaburi”, Sahih Muslim – vol. 3, p 1476

Now we take a look at the picture of the text of this narrative written in “SahihBukhari” book described by eight Sunni scholars:


 

 Notable point in above narrative:

There are exact points in this narrative which are so important to understand the meaning of messenger of god [PBUH].

1: notifying of the occurrence of evil and sedition after his demise:

فَهَلْ من وَرَاءِ هذا الْخَيْرِ شَرٌّ؟ قال: نعم.

2: leaders after Prophet, they neither continue the way of Prophet [PBUH] leading people and nor obey his tradition; but they create tradition:

يَكُونُ بَعْدِي أَئِمَّةٌ لَا يَهْتَدُونَ بِهُدَايَ ولا يَسْتَنُّونَ بِسُنَّتِي.

 

3: guys come to power as “leaders” are like humans; but their hearts are devil’s heart:

وَسَيَقُومُ فِيهِمْ رِجَالٌ قُلُوبُهُمْ قُلُوبُ الشَّيَاطِينِ في جُثْمَانِ إِنْسٍ.

 

Since the letter “س” has been used in this word “سیقوم”, we realize that leaders with mentioned qualities will begin their work right after Prophet.

And because “Huzayfah” {narrator} died several days after murdering of “Uthman bin Afan” and messenger of god [PBUH] has taken care of “Huzayfah”, instance of these leaders is first three caliphs not no one else.

And if this narrative is insulting Sahaba, “Muslim Nishapuri” should take the responsibility for saying this narrative in his most valid book.

4: Sahaba were assigned the task of bearing with the events happened after Prophet [PBUH]’s demise from usurping caliphate by “Abu-Bakr”, “Umar” and “Utham” and assaulting the house of Hadrat “Fatimah” [AS] to usurping “Fadak” garden given to Hadrat “Fatimah” [AS] by Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] and anything that happened to his “Ahl al-Bayt” [AS]:

قال: تَسْمَعُ وَتُطِيعُ لِلْأَمِيرِ وَإِنْ ضُرِبَ ظَهْرُكَ وَأُخِذَ مَالُكَ فَاسْمَعْ وَأَطِعْ.

So, if sahaba of Prophet [PBUH] and loyal companions of commander of the faithful [AS] didn’t defend Ali [AS] and Hadrat “Fatimah” [AS], it was because they wanted to follow Prophet [PBUH]’s order.

Good luck.
