Hadith on Baya’: Companions pledge allegiance to the Prophet

‘Ubadah ibn al-Samit reported: We pledged allegiance to the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, on the condition that we would listen to and obey our leaders, in adversity and in prosperity, in what we favor and in what we dislike, even if he commits favoritism against us, and that we would not dispute with those in authority unless definitive unbelief is seen from them for which there is clear proof from Allah Almighty, and that we would speak the truth in every circumstance without fearing the rebuke of anyone.

عَنْ عُبَادَةَ بْنِ الصَّامِتِ قَالَ بَايَعْنَا رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عَلَى السَّمْعِ وَالطَّاعَةِ في العُسْرِ واليُسْرِ والمَنْشَطِ وَالمَكْرَهِ وَعَلَى أثَرَةٍ عَلَيْنَا وَعَلَى أَنْ لَا نُنَازِعَ الأمْرَ أهْلَهُ إلَاّ أَنْ تَرَوْا كُفْرًا بَوَاحًا عِنْدَكُمْ مِنَ اللهِ تَعَالَى فِيهِ بُرْهَانٌ وَعَلَى أَنْ نَقُولَ بالحَقِّ أيْنَمَا كُنَّا لَا نَخَافُ في اللهِ لَوْمَةَ لَائِمٍ
