Assalamu wa alaykum Effendi I wonder about the lands of inheritance. Fadak who was second for Shi’ites Fatimah. I read the topic of Sayyida Fatima, however, I argued with a sister who is also my fiancee about it. She told me she was a relative as Fatimah and was closer to the Prophet pbuh she knew better than Abu Bakr. I disagreed, but did not know what to answer. About it, she had forgiven Abu Bakr, Abu Bakr was not done nothing wrong and did the will of the Messenger of Allah SAWS because she had to forgive him? Furthermore, I can tell when a Shi’ite says Ali and Fatima were created inside the house of the Prophet SAW and thus has higher status than Abu Bakr ra? Could explain the status of Abu Bakr and Ali? and that issue is confused about Fadac?Allah Razi Olsun ya Effendi.
We must keep absolute love and respect for all of them, period. Mawlana Shaykh Hisham truly hates to go into such issues and I have seen Mawlana Shaykh Nazim get very angry about them. This type of knowledge will absolutely not benefit in the grave but on the contrary is detrimental to discuss, since Allah Most High and the Prophet commanded to leave the Companions alone and not try to take any of them to task about anything, especially the First and Foremost (al-Sabiqun al-Awwalun) and the People of the House (who include the first four Caliphs).
The Awliya from the first to the last generations would prefer to have their tongues cut off rather than use them to critique the family of the Prophet (upon him blessings and peace) such as Abu Bakr, Ali, and Fatima (upon them peace) or ask who is better than who. Do not be confused about this but rather be sure that you should divorce this topic from your mind and never come back to it again.
