My question is regarding the slogan Haq Chaar Yaar which is in response to Naarae-Tehqeeq. As far as I know they are refering to the most afzal Sahaba by granting them such as slogan. Why are some, not all just a few minority of people refuting this Naara. After all we all say Naarae Haidri which meantions Hazrat Ali( radiallahu anhu). Why do they have a problem with us saying Haq Chaar Yaar which refers to Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq (RadhiALLAHu Anhum) Hazrat Umar-e-Farooq (RadhiALLAHu Anhum) Hazrat Usman-e-Ghani AND (RadhiALLAHu Anhum) Hazrat Ali-ul-Murtaza (RadhiALLAHu Anhum). What is wrong with this. We are just expressing our love for the four most afzal Sahabas. It has created fitna amongst Sunnis. I think it is beacuse they only want to show respect to Hazrat Ali-ul-Murtaza (RadhiALLAHu Anhum) and the ahle bait which are the beliefs of shia’s. There is nothing wrong with Haq Chaar Yaar as it was actually created by Ahle Sunnah Wa Jamaat before some so called sunnis started negating it and saying we should say Haq Sab Yaar. Well if that is the case what if Maaz Allah people start negating Panj Tan Paak The Five Purified Ones of Allah The Holy Five include Prophet Muhammad (sas), Hazrat Ali, Hazrat Fatima, Hazrat Hassan and Hazrat Hussain (peace & blessings upon them all). What if people say does that mean the others are not paak. NO IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT. Please can you tell me your views on this as I believe there is nothing wrong with saying Haq Chaar Yaar after Naar-e tehqeeq and that is the only response to it.
The status of the four rightly guided caliphs is in their actual order of succession. That is Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique, then Hazrat Umar Farooq, then Hazrat Uthmaan Gani and finally Hazrat Ali (may Allah be pleased with them all). To clarify, it is not from the beliefs of Ahle Sunnah that Hazrat Umar is of a greater rank than Hazrat Abu Bakr. After all the prophets sent by Allah, Hazrat Abu Bakr is considered the greatest individual amongst mankind. Those people who have any enmity towards any of the companions of the Prophet should seek repentence as Allah has said in the Qur’aan with regards to the companions, ‘Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him’. As to the ‘fitna’ this may be causing, one must stay reassured that truth shall always prevail over falsehood.
And Allah knows best
