About this episode

Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi continues to unravel details about Ali Ibn Abi Talib RA, incidents during the lifetime of Abu Bakr RA, including the giving of bai’ah to Abu Bakr RA, and the early seeds of Shi'ism.

The separation of the two groups - Sunni and Shias started after the death of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. The majority believed that his rightful successor was Abu Bakr RA, but a small group believed that Prophet Muhammad ﷺ successor should be Ali ibn Abi Talib RA.

Ali RA had no ill will towards Abu Bakr RA and this statement is the crux of the talk in the video above. Shaykh Yasir Qadhi explicitly explains the circumstances for this situation to arise and also how this was actually nothing short of an issue blown out of proportion when in reality, matters were resolved amicably and without much ado.
