Abu Bakr’s Leading Prayers.
.
The root cause of all travesties and abominations in Islam is the caliphate of Abu Bakr. There is absolutely no justification that can make Abu Bakr’s act of assuming leadership after the demise of Rasool Allah صلى الله عليه و آله و سلم valid or legal.
.
Omaris claim that Abu Bakr led prayers in the last days of the life of Rasool Allah صلى الله عليه و آله و سلم and claim this to be a prominent attribute for Abu Bakr. Some of them argue that this also legitimizes his claim to caliphate. And as a matter of fact, the main arrow in their quiver is the alleged prayers of the villain in question.
.
In this series of lectures I’ve begun to evaluate this argument and will prove that:
.
1. Abu Bakr did try to lead prayers in those unfortunate last days of the life of the Nabi صلى الله عليه و آله و سلم through a palace conspiracy led by Ayesha, but was embarrassingly fired from that position by the Holy Nabi صلى الله عليه و آله و سلم.
.
2. Even if we agree that Abu Bakr led prayers and was not fired, this does not even prove that he was not fasiq or a munafiq, which is quite far from his claim to succession.
.
The series is intended to encompass important and vital information relevant to the topic of caliphate and succession, and the diabolic roles of Abu Bakr, Omar and Ayesha from authentic Omari sources.
.
The facts presented in the lectures are unquestionable and the implications they lead to are easily and rationally deducible.
.
I’d appreciate your feedback, questions and comments. Your questions relevant to the content of each video will oblige me to further explain and produce new videos, and this will contribute to the comprehensiveness and completion of the series. All questions and comments to be answered should be posted on my site.
.
Please watch the videos in the order presented since each video is sort of a prerequisite for the next one.

The lecture in this post is an introduction to subject, a prologue to the coming series, and presents articulation of a typical staunch Omari-salafi argument by two of their preeminent scholars Ibn Taimaiyya and Ibn Hajar al-Haitami.

  • Enjoying the series so far. Was interesting to know some of the differences of opinion in regards to how Abu Bakr was appointed.

    The videos are long but the content is good. I wish there was a way to switch the playback speed to 1.5 so that I could save time but not skip content.

    Will be watching them daily from now on inshallah
