Abu Al-Hasan Zayn Al-‘Abideen Ali ibn Al-Husein [May Allah shower him with Mercy] said:  A group from the people of Iraq came to me and spoke ill of Abu Bakr, Umar, and Uthman –May Allah be pleased with them-.

When they were done, he said to them:

Would you answer me this: Are you the Foremost Muhajirun {who were expelled from their homes and their property, seeking Bounties from Allâh and to please Him. And helping Allâh and His Messenger. Such are indeed the Truthful} [Al-Hashr 59:8]?

They said: No.

So he said: Then you must be {those who, before them, had homes (in Al-Madinah) and had adopted the Faith, love those who emigrate to them, and have no jealousy in their breasts for that which they have been given, and give them (emigrants) preference over themselves, even though they were in need of that} [Al-Hashr 59:9]?

They said: No.

So he said: As for you, then you have freed yourselves from being from one of these two groups, and I bear witness that you are also not from among those who Allah –the Exalted- said of them: {And those who came after them say: "Our Lord! Forgive us and our brethren who have preceded us in Faith, and put not in our hearts any hatred against those who have believed. Our Lord! You are indeed full of kindness, Most Merciful} [Al-Hashr 59:10].

Get out, May Allah do [such-and-such] to you.

عن علي بن الحسين: قال أتاني نفر من أهل العراق فقالوا في أبي بكر وعمر وعثمان رضي الله عنهم فلما فرغوا قال لهم علي بن الحسين ألا تخبرونني أنتم المهاجرون الأولون الذين أخرجوا من ديارهم وأموالهم يبتغون فضلا من الله ورضوانا وينصرون الله ورسوله أولئك هم الصادقون قالوا لا قال فأنتم الذين تبوؤا الدار والايمان من قبلهم يحبون من هاجر اليهم ولا يجدون في صدورهم حاجة مما أوتوا ويؤثرون على أنفسهم ولو كان بهم خصاصة ومن يوق شح نفسه فأولئك هم المفلحون قالوا لا قال أما أنتم فقد تبرأتم أن تكونوا من أحد هذين الفريقين ثم قال أشهد أنكم لستم من الذين قال الله عز و جل والذين جاؤا من بعدهم يقولون ربنا اغفر لنا ولإخواننا الذين سبقونا بالإيمان ولا تجعل في قلوبنا غلا للذين آمنوا ربنا انك رؤوف رحيم اخرجوا فعل الله بكم
