    abdalQadir, I believe that to consider hazrat abu bakr or Imam Ali as afdal after the Noble Prophet(s) is based upon conjectural and probable evidences. We may say so and so is most likely afdal but we cannot say that so and so is definately 100% afdal because the evidences from which it is proven are speculative and probable.

    as for the atqa verse above presented to prove Hazrat Aby Bakr al-siddiq's afdaliyyat, it only serves as a probable evidence because we do not have an unanimous agreement that the atqa means atqa but rather a great number of mufassirun have stated that atqa means taqi, i.e., sift mushabba. Secondly, it is also not unanimous that the verse was revealed for hazrat abu bakr. so both points upon which the justification depends rests on speculative and probable evidence hence whatever is proven from it will also be probable.

    AbdalQadir time to move along! will check pm's.

    from the very same website nawazuddin cited, in the very same tafsir of Baghawiy, under the very next verse, it says exactly what is mentioned in the treatise of Ala Hazrat

    it was presented as a direct quote in the treatise, so all nawazuddin had to do was to copy and paste the same into google and see where else it is found, notwithstanding the fact that the reference was also provided.

    so it's not really a 'question', more like a rebuttal, albeit a minuscule one.

    can you please state clearly and openly your convictions regarding afzaliyat and bring the detailed evidence for the same, nawazuddin?

    Thank you for the link.

    I have a question about the verse cited as evidence for afzaliyyat of hazrat abu bakr al-siddiq(r). Please explain if possible.

    The mufassirun state that by atqa it means taqi. so if it no longer has the meaning of ism tafzil or the superlative then how can one use it to mean afzaliyyat. For example, here is what tafsir jalalayn says:

    { وَسَيُجَنَّبُهَا } يبعد عنها { ٱلأَتْقَى } بمعنى التقي.

    on page 20 of alzulal it says: وقد قال البغوي في الاتقى يعني ابا بكر في قول الجميع

    [FONT=NSK1....-L]that imam al-baghawi says that by atqa it means hazrat abu bakr.[/FONT]
    [FONT=NSK1....-L] [/FONT]
    [FONT=NSK1....-L]yet we find imam baghawi in his maalim al-tanzil state:
    { وَسَيُجَنَّبُهَا ٱلأَتْقَى } ، يريد بالأشقى الشقي، وبالأتقى التقي


    and also there is difference of opinion about whom this verse was revealed. Imam Abu Mansur al-Maturidi (d. 333) our imam in aqeeda says in his tafsir:

    وقال بعضهم: نزلت هذه الآية - وهي قوله عز وجل: { وَمَا لأَحَدٍ عِندَهُ مِن نِّعْمَةٍ تُجْزَىٰ } - في أبي بكر الصديق، رضي الله عنه.

    وقال بعضهم: هذه الآية نزلت في أبي الدحداح - رضي الله عنه - طلب النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم منه نخلة - إلى آخر القصة.

    according to some it was revealed for hazrat abu bakr and according some it was revealed for hazrat abu al-dahdah.

    on both counts, meaning of atqa and occasion of revelation there is difference amongst ahl al-sunnah.
