Disrespecting the companions of Allah's messenger: a reprehensible act

Islamic belief emphasizes the merit of the sahabas over the rest of the Muslim community. However, some factions question this major foundation of the aqida. In this case, the Shiites have no qualms about insulting Abu Bakr, 'Umar, Uthman, Ali Ibn Abi Talib, and the rest of the Companions.

In the Koran, Allah refers to the companions who helped Allah's Messenger. They are the example to follow, because of their righteousness and devotion. Anyone who denigrates or insults them contradicts the path taken by Allah's messenger.
