Ahmad on Sahaba: Speaking badly of the Companions is against Islam

Abdul Malik ibn Maymun reported: Ahmad ibn Hanbal, may Allah have mercy on him, said to me, “If you see a man speaking badly about any of the companions of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, be wary of his practice of Islam.”

عن عَبْد الملك بْن ميمون قَالَ لِي أحْمَد بْن حنبل رحمه الله إذا رأيت رجلا يذكر أحدا من أصحاب رَسُول اللّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ بسوء فاتهمه على الإسلام
