- Why are Abu bakr and Umar allowed by Allah, to be buried next to prophet Muhammad (SAW), if they were bad and evil men and will go to hell, as Shias believe.
There are people amongst the Jews and atheists, among the disbelievers, who abuse Muhammad (SAW) very badly! Is this also the will of Allah? You and I both know it is not, it is the free will of man, for which he is highly punishable.
Abu bakr was succeeded by Umar and thus umar buried Abu bakr next to prophet (SAW). Umar was succeeded by Usman and thus usman buried Umer next to Rasool (SAW) as well. When usman was killed, people didn’t let him be buried next to prophet (SAW) and thus he was buried in the graveyard just where the graves of the Jews started! These burials were due to the free will of the people. Do u believe that if Abu bakr was succeeded by someone else who was not his ally, would he allow Abu bakr to be buried next to prophet (SAW)? Maybe not.
- Even if they are bad men, burying next to prophet (SAW) means they won’t be punished in their grave due to the barkat of Rasool Allah (SAW)
Because what they did, was wrong and that is what matters. Allah is the judge, he forgives whom he wills and punishes whom he wills. Why should we judge who will be punished and how and who will go to heaven. Leave it to Allah. We are only concerned with who did good and who did bad! Recognize that goodness or badness, and stay away from the path of those who did bad.
- How can evil people be allowed to be buried next to the greatest creation, Prophet Muhammad (SAW)
Thus in no way does being buried next to the prophet prove u were masoom or good, neither it guarantees as an atonement for your sins. What matters is your faith, your beliefs, your actions and your sincerity and love for Allah, his Deen, his Quran, his angels, his Rasool and his ahlulbayt.
