The Sermon quoted by Sunnis to show the Hazrat Ali(AS) praised Abu Bakr and Umar :
On Hazrat Umar’s demise he (Ali) expressed his praise in these words: “He straightened the disorders, treated the disease, left behind the sedition, established the Sunnah, passed away from the world with unblemished clothing and less evil, caught hold of virtues (of the world) and surpassed its evil. He abided by Allah and feared Him too...” (Nahajul Balaghah ; Sermon No. 225, published by Tublighate Imani Hind, Bombay)
Our reply :
I am sorry to say but that I could not find anything in Nahjul Balaga like the reference Sunnis quoted above. If u copied it from a link, then re verify it. I dont see any sermon like that, or with those wordings in the Nahjul balagha. Beware of the propaganda of extremist and nasibi websites.
Logically thinking, how can Umar be praised for establishing the Sunnah when sunni texts proudly make his innovations as the part of Islam? And how can Mawla Ali say that, when it is clear from the research of scholars, unanimously, that Mawla Ali rejected the caliphate after the demise of Umar, because he did not agree to the condition, "following the Sunnah of Sheikheins".
How ever Mawla Ali's views on Abu bakr and Umer from shia nahjul balaga and Sunni Sahah Sittah are widely available.
Beware! By Allah the son of Abu Quhafah (Abu Bakr) dressed himself with it (the caliphate) and he certainly knew that my (Ali's) position in relation to it was the same as the position of the axis in relation to the hand-mill. The flood water flows down from me and the bird cannot fly upto me. I put a curtain against the caliphate and kept myself detached from it. Then I began to think whether I should assault or endure calmly the blinding darkness of tribulations wherein the grown up are made feeble and the young grow old and the true believer acts under strain till he meets Allah (on his death). I found that endurance thereon was wiser. So I adopted patience although there was pricking in the eye and suffocation (of mortification) in the throat. I watched the plundering of my inheritance till the first one went his way but handed over the Caliphate to Ibn al-Khattab after himself. Peak of Eloquence, Sermon 3, Sermon of ash-Shiqshiqiyyah
It is reported by Zuhri that this tradition was narrated to him by Malik b. Aus who said: Abu Bakr (Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) had said:" We do not have any heirs; what we leave behind is (to be given in) charity." So both of you (Ali and Abbass) thought him (Abu Bakr) to be a liar, sinful, treacherous and dishonest. And Allah knows that he was true, virtuous, well-guided and a follower of truth. When Abu Bakr passed away and (I [Umer] have become) the successor of the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) and Abu Bakr (Allah be pleased with him), you (Ali) thought me to be a liar, sinful, treacherous and dishonest. And Allah knows that I am true, virtuous, well-guided and a follower of truth. ....... Sahih Muslim , Book 19, Number 4349
Janab Zahra (AS), the leader of the women of paradise, had shown her discontent and anger at Abu Bakr and Umer;
Narrated 'Aisha: (mother of the believers) After the death of Allah 's Apostle Fatima the daughter of Allah's Apostle asked Abu Bakr As-Siddiq to give her, her share of inheritance from what Allah's Apostle had left of the Fai (i.e. booty gained without fighting) which Allah had given him. Abu Bakr said to her, "Allah's Apostle said, 'Our property will not be inherited, whatever we (i.e. prophets) leave is Sadaqa (to be used for charity)." Fatima, the daughter of Allah's Apostle got angry and stopped speaking to Abu Bakr, and continued assuming that attitude till she died. Fatima remained alive for six months after the death of Allah's Apostle................. Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 53, Hadith 325
So to argue that Abu bakr and Umer were in the good books of ahlulbayt is absolutely absurd
