Ali b. Abi Talib Pledged Allegiance to Abu Bakr as-Siddiq رضى الله عنهما

 بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

والصلاة والسلام على اشرف الانبياء واكمل البشر

Many Shi’ites falsely claim that sayyidina Ali b. Abi Talib كرم الله وجهه الكريم did not pledge allegiance to the first Khalifah, sayyidina Abi Bakr as-Siddiq رضى الله عنه.

But this is contrary to what is written in their own literature, that after the murder of Muhammad b. Abi Bakr رضى الله عنهما, Amir al-Mu’minin رضى الله عنه said in a sermon that he had given the bay’ah (pledge of allegiance) to sayyidina Abi Bakr as-Siddiq رضى الله عنه

(Bihar al-Anwar v.33 p.568; Sharh Nahj al-Balaghah of Ibn Abil-Hadid v.6 p.95):

This disproves the Imamiyyah Shi’ah doctrine of the Imamate being a “divine right” of sayyidina Ali and his descendants عليهم السلام
