)It is incorrect to look at all the companions with one eye; this is infactopposite of the Holy Quran.
The truth is that many of the HolyProphet'scompanions were pious and true believers, while therewere some whowere known for their false belief and hypocrisy.
History shows us manyexamples of such individuals.
2- Is it correct to close our eyes and ears, saying that all thecompanionswere pious, good, and that all of their deeds werecredible even if theyhad some deeds which were opposed to theIslamic law (shar`)?3- Is it right to justify their evil deeds, saying that they werepractisingijtihad, and that their wrong doings did not happenintentionally?If they were free to practise ijtihad, why can't we also practiseijtihad?Why is it that some say: You are kafir (an infidel)! if youpractise ijtihad?Why do you consider all those who criticizes thecompanions accordingto the Holy Quran, kafirs? One of the Hanafischolars, Ibn `Abdeen, hadmade a nice statement, saying,"Considering others as kafirs withoutevidences is the behaviour ofthe pagans not the mujtahids!"4- Can we call this behaviour of yours but extremity andexaggeration?How could you accuse others of exaggeration andforget to criticizeyourselves? We haven't any evidence that thecompanions of the HolyProphet (s.w.) were infallible, but when youtalk about their deeds youtalk exaggeratedly, and even at times,you consider the companionseven better than an infallible or theHoly Prophet (s.w.) himself.
However,when the Shi`ites speakabout their Imams as infallible imamas, youaccuse them offabrication and lies! Many Sunni scholars have dared tosay thatmany Quranic verses were revealed according to `Umar's will.
Yes,these words have been written by a Sunni scholar under thetitle"Muwafaqaat `Umar".
The Sunni people perform the prayers known as "taraweeh"inRamadhan in congregation, while it is an inovation fabricated by`Umar.
Was such a prayer mention in the sunnah of the HolyProphet (s.w.)?When the Shi`ites practise their deeds accordingto Imam Sadiq'ssayings and narrations, the Sunni people say thatthe Shi`ites refer theirdeeds to their Imams because they arema`soom, while they (the Sunnis)give a better rank to a companionthan the rank of the Holy Prophet(s.w.).
This clearly dicloses theircontradictions.
