Do you abuse or speak ill of the companions of the prophet?

كلام إمام أهل السُّنَّة أحمد بن حنبل
قال -رحمه الله-: “ومن الحجَّة الواضحة البيِّنة المعروفة: ذكر محاسنَ أصحاب رسول الله -صلّى الله عليه وسلّم- كلُّهم أجمعين، والكفَّ عن ذكر مساويهم، والخلاف الّذي شجر بينهم، فمن سبَّ أصحاب رسول الله -صلّى الله عليه وسلّم-، أو واحدًا منهم، أو تنقص أو طعن عليهم، أو عرض بعيبهم، أو عاب أحدًا منهم فهو مبتدعٌ رافضيٌّ خبيثٌ مخالفٌ، لا يقبل الله منه صرفًا ولا عدلًا، بل حبُّهم سنَّةٌ، والدُّعاء لهم قربةٌ، والاقتداء بهم وسيلةٌ، والأخذ بآثارهم فضيلةٌ، وأصحاب رسول الله -صلّى الله عليه وسلّم- هم خير النَّاس، لا يجوز لأحدٍ أن يذكر شيئًا من مساويهم، ولا يطعن على أحدٍ منهم بعيبٍ ولا نقصٍ” (كتاب السُّنَّة ص78).
The words of the Imam of the People of the Sunnah, Ahmad ibn Hanbal;
He, may Allah have mercy on his soul, said, “It is from the clear argument and known evidence to mention the virtues of all of the companions of the Messenger of Allah, صلى الله عله وسلم. In addition, it is sound argument to stop mentioning their disadvantages and the disagreement and disputes between them.
Whoever insulted the companions of the Messenger of Allah, صلى الله عله وسلم, or anyone of them, defamed, disparaged, brought their faults into light, or discredited any of them is a malicious innovator Rafida (deserter).
Allah will accept from them neither the obligatory nor the voluntary acts of worship.
Rather, loving them is from the Sunnah, supplicating for them is an act of worship, to follow their way is a means, and to grab their traditions is a virtue.
The companions of the Messenger of Allah, صلى الله عله وسلم, are the best people, no one should mention any of their defects, defame or discredit them.” (The Book of As-Sunnah, p. 78)
