Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) would not sit in the place of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) on the mimbar

Question

Is this narration authentic?

لم يجلس أبو بكر الصديق في مجلس رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم على المنبر حتى لقي الله، ولم يجلس عمر في مجلس أبي بكر حتى لقي الله، ولم يجلس عثمان في مجلس عمر حتى لقي الله

 

Answer

Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this statement of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma). Hafiz Haythami (rahimahullah) states, ‘The narrators are reliable, however there exists a difference of opinion regarding some narrators.’

(Al Mu’jamul Awsat, Hadith: 7919, Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 9 pg. 54)

 

Translation

Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) did not sit in the place of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) on the pulpit [out of respect] until he passed away, Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) did not sit in the place of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) until he passed away and Sayyiduna ‘Uthman (radiyallahu ‘anhu) did not sit in the place of Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) until he passed away.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
