famous sunni imam, ahmad bin hanbal, his view was that if there is anyone who degrades a companion, he is a kafir who has no part in islam

for example, he said with sahih sanad in sunnah by khalal

أبي بكر المروذي قال: سألت أبا عبد الله عمن يشتم أبا بكر وعمر وعائشة؟
قال: ما أراه على الإسلام.

abu bakar marodi said, i asked abu abdullah about those who insult abu bakar, umar, ayesha?
he said:- i dont see them on islam


أخبرني عبد الملك بن عبد الحميد قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله قال:
من شتم أخاف عليه الكفر مثل الروافض، ثم قال: من شتم أصحاب النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم لا نأمن أن يكون قد مرق عن الدين

Abd al-Malik ibn ‘Abd al-Hamid informed me saying: I heard abu abdullah saying: ‘Whosoever insults the Companions, then I fear disbelief for him like the Rawafid’. Then he said, ‘Whosoever insults the Companions of the Prophet, then we do not believe he is safe from having rejected the Religion’.”

وقال أخبرني عبد الله بن أحمد بن حنبل قال: سألت أبي عن رجل شتم رجلاً من أصحاب النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم، فقال: ما أراه على الإسلام


abdullah bin ahmad bin hanbal said that i asked my father regarding man who insults anyone from companions of prophet; so he said; i dont see him on islam

[sunnah by khalal, vol 2, page 493]

ibn hajar said in tehzeeb regarding hareez bin uthman, who is narrator 436

وقال أحمد بن أبي يحيى عن أحمد حريز صحيح الحديث إلا أنه يحمل على علي

ahmand bin abu yahya from ahmad who said that hareez is sahih in hadeeth except that he attacks ali

so, he knew it for sure

but what was his opinion for him

قال وسألت أحمد بن حنبل عنه فقال ثقة ثقة

when i asked ahmad bin hanbal regarding him, he said: thiqa thiqa

[ tehzeeb ut tehzeeb, vol 2, page 238]
