Mutzali View Regarding Aboo Bakr & Umar

 Ibn Taymiyyah:

And there is no one among the Mu'tazilites who criticizes the caliphate of Aboo Bakr and Umar. Rather, they agree to establish the succession of the three. And as for the preference (tafdeel), their Imams and their generality preferred Aboo Bakr and Umar. And in the later generations there were those who stopped in the preference (Tafdeel of Aboo Bakr and Umar), and some of them preferred (Imam) Alee. So there became between them and the Zaydiyyah common heritage and less distance in terms of commonality in monotheism, justice, Imamate and Tafdeel.

Ibn Abi'l-Hadid:

All our scholars have agreed, both the older and later generations, and both those of Basrah and Baghdad, that the bayah of Aboo Bakr was correct and legitimate and that it was not based on nass and that it was through on choice established on the consensus of everyone and through other than Ijmah (consenus), since it is a way to the Imamah.
