“Let him talk about them in this manner or else not speak at all!”

Abu Hazim said:

“I was with ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar bin al-Khattab[RA] and he mentioned ‘Uthman[RA] and his virtues, his attributes and his relationship through marriage to the Prophet – sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – so that he depicted him as purer than glass. Then he mentioned ‘Ali[RA] and mentioned his virtues, his seniority in Islaam and his relationship through marriage to the Prophet – sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – until he depicted him as purer than glass. Then he said, “Whoever wants to talk about these two, let him talk about them in this manner or else not speak at all!”“

[“Tahqeeq Mawaaqif as-Sahaabah”: 1/379]
