Baqir As-Sadr praises Abu Bakr

Question:

Was Abu Bakr praised by the scholar Muhammad Baqir As-Sadr?

Answer:

Muhammad Baqir As-Sadr writes: “Thus begins the Islamic history of Fadak. It was in the possession of the Messenger (God bless him and his family), for it belonged to that which was not damaged by either a horse or a camel. Then he gave it to his daughter Az-Zahra’ and it remained in her possession until her father died (God bless him and his family). Then the first successor (may God be pleased with him) snatched it from her according to the confession of the author of As-Sawa’iq-ul-Muhriqah, and it became part of the source of general wealth and the wealth of the state at that time until Umar took over the succession. He then returned Fadak to the heir of the Messenger (God bless him and his family) and Fadak remained in the possession of the family of Muhammad (God bless him and his family) until Uthman Ibn Affan took care of the succession.” [Fadak Fi At-Tarikh, page 26]

قال السيد محمد باقر الصدر: وابتدأ بذلك تاريخها الإسلامي فكانت ملكا لرسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) لأنها مما لم يوحف عليها بخيل ولا ركاب ثم قدمها لابنته الزهراء وبقيت عندها حتى توفي أبوها (صلى الله عليه وآله) فاتنزعها الخليفة الأول (رضي الله عنه) على حد تعبير صاحب الصواعق المحرقة وأصبحت من مصادر المالية العامة وموارد ثروة الدولة يومذاك حتى تولى عمر الخلافة فدفع فدكا إلى ورثة رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) وبقيت فدك عند آل محمد (صلى الله عليه وآله) إلى أن تولى الخلافة عثمان بن عفان
