Abu Bakr (Abdullah ibn Abi Quhafa) (c. 573 CE - 634 CE) also known as Abū Bakr as-Șiddīq (Arabic: أبو بكر الصديق) was a senior companion (Sahabi) and the father-in-law of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad. Shia Islam (Shīʿah) is the second largest denomination of Islam. Adherents of Shia Islam are called Shi'as or Shias. 4.0/5

‘Deal with the Rafidah [derogatory term for Shia Muslims], al Salul [derogatory term for Saudi royalists] . . . Dismember their limbs. *** them as groups and individuals. Embitter their lives and make them occupied with themselves instead of us. Be patient and do not hasten. Soon, Allah willing, the vanguards of the Islamic State will reach you.” So spoke Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the self-declared caliph of the Islamic State, in an audiotape released yesterday.
Sunni vs. Shi'ites: Why They Hate Each Other and What is the difference between Sunni and Shia Muslims? CLASHES between Islam's two big sects, the Sunni and the Shia, take place across the Muslim world. In the Middle East a potent mix of religion and politics has sharpened the divide between Iran’s Shia government and the Gulf states, which have Sunni governments. Last year a report by the Pew Research Centre, a think tank, found 40% of Sunnis do not consider Shia to be proper Muslims. So what exactly divides Sunni and Shia Islam and how deep does the rift go? The argument dates back to the death in 632 of Islam’s founder, the Prophet Muhammad. Tribal Arabs who followed him were split over who should inherit what was both a political and a religious office. The majority, who would go on to become known as the Sunnis, and today make up 80% of Muslims, backed Abu Bakr, a friend of the Prophet and father of his wife Aisha. Others thought Muhammad’s kin the rightful successors. They claimed the Prophet ...
Shia & Sunni Shia and Sunni have mostly the same beliefs and both believe in the fundamental beliefs of Islam. The conflict of shia and sunni has been always amplified by world Imperialism to prevent Islam from gaining power. Shia believe after the death of the prophet, God selected the successor of the prophet, who is the political leader of the Muslim community and people can not and do not have the right to select. Shia believe the Caliph (Representative of God on earth) is selected only by God and can not be selected by people because God said in the Quran: "Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority" (Quran 2:30) or "O David! We did indeed make thee a vicegerent on earth" (Quran 38:26). Shia believe such verses means only God can select an Islamic political leader (Caliph). Shia believe that the Caliphs after the prophet are 12 Imams and all of them are mah'sumeen (make no mistakes). Shia Muslims do not consider the selection of Abu Bakr as Caliph valid because God did not select him. ...
Origins of Karbala The Battle of Karbala is often cited as the definitive break between the Shia and Sunni sects of Islam, and is commemorated each year by Shia Muslims on the Day of Ashura. Abu Mikhnaf,the Arab traditionalist who died in 774 AD remains the earliest source of the Karbala incident captured primarily through the works of much later historians,often centuries removed from the event. Al-Tabri(died 923 AD) is the earliest source which makes use of Abu Mikhnaf’s source comprehensively.No original work of Abu Mikhnaf survives- however,a recension by one of his students, Hisham ibn Al-Kalbi, is still considered reliable. Abu Mikhnaf’s ‘Kitab Maqtal Al-Hussain’ remains the work through which we learn much details of the event in question. Abu Mikhnaf’s grandfather was believed to have given his life in the battle of Siffin which was allegedly fought between Ali ibn-Abi Talib and Muawiyah in the year 657 AD. Abu Mikhnaf is not very particular and scrupulous about authority chains.He has a ...
Shia Muslims do not take part in New Year activities. They commemorate the Battle of Karbala and observe it as a month of mourning. This commemoration ends on the tenth day of Muharram called Ashurah. Similarly, Sunni Muslims do not take part in the New Year traditions as on this day first Caliph Abu Bakr died.
he following article was published in the community News & Views of January 1996. It has since been circulated almost every year during the month of Holy Ramadhan. Taraweeh Suunah or Bid'a? I ask you all to have the following perspective in view when reading this article. (1) In the US University and college campuses MSA's are very active. Every MSA becomes even more active during the holy month of Holy Ramadhan. All Muslim students come together at Iftar time and break their fast together as a group. It gives a great sense of solidarity among Muslim students in the American and European campuses. However, soon after the Isha prayers, the group separates. The Sunni students regroup for the TRAWEEH prayers while the Shia students go back to their dorms. It is natural for those Sunnis who have never come in contact with the Shia Muslims to ask the Shia as to why don't they participate in the TRAWEEH prayers. This article gives a very brief but comprehensive answer to that basic question. (2) I ask my Sunni ...
Shia Muslims believe that just as a prophet is appointed by God alone, only Go Successors of Muhammad Sunnis believe that Abu Bakr, the father of Muhammad's wife Aisha, was Muhammad's rightful successor and that the method of choosing or electing leaders (Shura) endorsed by the Quran is the consensus of the Ummah, (the Muslim community). Shiites believe that Muhammad divinely ordained his cousin and son-in-law Ali (the father of his grandsons Hasan ibn Ali and Hussein ibn Ali) in accordance with the command of God to be the next caliph making Ali and his direct descendants Muhammad's successors. Ali was married to Fatimah, Muhammad's daughter. Muhammad's wife Aisha endorsed her father Abu Bakr as the successor to Muhammad. In the Battle of the Camel (656), Aisha opposed her step son-in-law Ali outside the city of Basra because she wanted justice on the perpetrators of the assassination of the previous caliph, Uthman. Aisha's forces were defeated and the Prophet's widow was respectfully escorted back to Me ...
The division between Shia and Sunni dates back to the death of the Prophet Muhammad, and the question of who was to take over the leadership of the Muslim nation. Sunni Muslims agree with the position taken by many of the Prophet's companions, that the new leader should be elected from among those capable of the job. This is what was done, and the Prophet Muhammad's close friend and advisor, Abu Bakr, became the first Caliph of the Islamic nation. The word "Sunni" in Arabic comes from a word meaning "one who follows the traditions of the Prophet." On the other hand, some Muslims share the belief that leadership should have stayed within the Prophet's own family, among those specifically appointed by him, or among Imams appointed by God Himself. The Shia Muslims believe that following the Prophet Muhammad's death, leadership should have passed directly to his cousin/son-in-law, Ali bin Abu Talib. Throughout history, Shia Muslims have not recognized the authority of elected Muslim leaders, choosing instead ...
Attacking the House of Fatimah (AS) A Sunni Brother mentioned that the Caliphate of Abu Bakr is the Consensus of scholars (Ijma'). It is incumbent upon Muslims to accept the Ijma'. First I would like to point out that we also believe that Ijma'a is binding. But, my brother, how can Sunni scholars make Ijma'a on something that the Prophet and some of his companions opposed it? This opposition is a clear evidence to the fact that there is no Ijma'a in that very matter. As for the Prophet (PBUH&HF), I mentioned the authentic Sunni traditions in the previous articles where he gave Imam Ali the position that Haroon had to Moses. That position is explained in Quran whose verses I mentioned. The verses show that: 1-Allah is the one who appoints the Caliph. 2-The verse also uses the word "Ukhlofni" which is exactly the verb form of Khalif. Moreover, I reproduced the historical reports documented by the Sunni scholars concerning the fact that the Messenger of Allah unequivocally announced Imam Ali (AS) as his succ ...
After Muhammad's death in A.D. 632 the leaders of the Muslim community chose Abu Bakr, the Prophet's father-in-law and one of his earliest followers, to succeed him as caliph (from khilafa; literally, successor of the Prophet). At that time, some persons favored Ali, the Prophet's cousin and
