Shaykh Muḥammad Bāzmūl:

“It was mentioned to me that a Shīʿī stood in front of Shaykh Badīʿ as-Sindī during the shaykh‘s lesson in Masjid al-Ḥarām. This Shīʿī said to the shaykh; “You ask Allah ﷻ to be pleased with Abū Bakr and ʿUmar whilst they are traitors; they have removed Surah al-Wilāyah from the Qur’an and verses that establish the rightful leadership of ʿAlī ibn Abī Ṭālib.” Shaykh Badīʿ as-Sindī replied, “What I hear from you (what you are saying) is that ʿAlī ibn Abī Ṭālib is a traitor like them!” The Shīʿī replied, “How can you say ʿAlī is a traitor whilst it was Abū Bakr and ʿUmar who concealed the verses of Wilāyah!?” So Shaykh Badīʿ as-Sindī said “Because he became the Caliph after them. So why did he not bring forth what Abū Bakr and ʿUmar had concealed of the Qur’an? Therefore, either ʿAlī was an accomplice in their treachery or nothing from Qur’an was concealed in the first place.” So the Shīʿī became confused and walked away defeated, and the shaykh finished his lesson.”
