Facebook and Google are full of internet mufti giving free fatway out on what they think is Deen. The Beloved Prophet salalaho alehi wa Ahlehi wasalam has given given us Deen through Quran and Sunnah!!!
So called internet Molvi are giving Fatway out calling Hazrat Amir Muawiya رضی اللہ عنہ Munafiq, Kafir, Gustaakh of Rasoolallah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم etc or when asked about Hazrat Muawiya رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ they reply saying “do we need to open the can of worms?” Nauzobillah!!!!
Before speaking ill about Hazrat Amir Muawiya (رضی اللہ عنہ), one should keep the following points in mind He was a
1) Companion of Rasoolallah salalaho alehi wa Ahlehi wasalam
2) Qatib e Wahi Ashabi (wrote the revelations which were sent to Rasoolallah صلی اللہ تعالیٰ علیہ وسلم)
3) Rasoolallah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم trusted Hazrat Ameer Muawiya رضی اللہ عنہ
What is a definition of Sahabi ??
A Sahabi is someone who saw Rasoolallah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم in the Prophet’s life time in the state of Imaan, such a person became a Ashaabi ( صحابی companion) all the Wali ولی اولیاء (saints) put together are not worth the dust on the feet of the Sahabi !!!
Many disputes took place between a lot of Companions but we are in no place to discuss them nor say anything bad about them. The Holy Prophet salalaho alehi wa Ahlehi wasalam has said:
“When you meet people who abuse and swear at my Sahaba then say to them “because of your hatred may Allah’s curse be upon you”

Hazrat Abu Saeed Hudri (rta) narrates Rasoolallah salalaho alehi
Wa Ahlehi wasalam said:
“For the Sake of Allah Refrain from using bad language about my Companions! For the Sake of Allah Refrain from using bad language about my Companions! Do not make them the target of your attacks after me! Whoever loves them, loves them on account of his love of me; whoever hates them, hates them on account of his hatred of me. He who hurts them, has hurt me, and he who hurts me, has hurt God, he who hurts God, God will punish him”

Roza of Hazrat Ameer Muawiya (rd) in Syria
Was’nt Hazrat Ameer Muawiya (radi Allahu tala anho) a Companion???????????????????
Hazrat Maula Ali (کرم اللہ وجہہ الکریم) and Hazrat Ameer Muawiya رضی اللہ عنہ
It is Ijmah of Ahle Sunnah wal Jamaah that Hazrat Maula Ali (a.s) was on Haq (right) and Hazrat Muawiya rta was wrong. Yes it was fault of Hazrat Amir Muawiya rta they did not except hazrat Maula Ali as Khalifah, they went to Syria and established their own leadership their, but we are in no position to curse or call Hazrat Ameer Muawiya a Kaafir Nauzobillah.
Rasoolallah salalaho alehi wa Ahlehi wasalam was sitting with Hazrat Imam Hassan in their lap and Rasoolallah pointed at Imam Hassan a.s and said:
“My this son is Syed, My son is Syed My son is Syed (Leader) He will create a peace between to big Muslim groups, He will finish the dispute and bring peace back into the Ummah”
1) Sahi Bukhari, Kitab ul Sulla’h, Volume 2, Page 962 Hadees 2557
2) Sunan Nisai, Kitab ul Jummah, Volume 3, Page 107 Hadees 1410
The Hadees clearly calls the group of Syedna Ameer Muawiya rta a Muslim!!!! Not Munafiq, Not Kaafir MazhAllah!!!!
Yes Hazrat Amir Muawiya rd was wrong he was on fault no Ahle sunnah Scholar has ever said He was on right, Hazrat Maula Ali was on Haq!!! Hazrat Ali was only on Haq!!!!
