Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Twelve

Written by

Spending on the Occasion of Tabook

On the occasion of Tabook, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) encouraged the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) to spend in the path of Allah Ta‘ala. Various Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) presented their contributions to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) according to their means.

Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had thought to himself on that occasion that he will present a great contribution and surpass Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), as this was the first time that he had received a great amount of wealth. Hence, he presented half his wealth before Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked him, “Did you leave anything for your family?” He replied, “Yes, O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! I left half of my entire wealth for my family.”

Rabee’ bin Sulaimaan (rahimahullah) reports that he heard Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) mention the following:

On one occasion, the day of eid had drawn near, but I did not have any money for my wife’s expenditure. Seeing the constrained situation that we were in, my wife said to me, “There are certain people to whom you regularly give gifts. Why do you not take a loan from some of these people?” Accordingly, I took a loan of seventy dinars. I then left twenty dinars for my wife’s expenditure and I kept aside the remaining fifty dinars for other needs.

a) He makes duaa for him that Allah Ta‘ala keep him in peace. Salaam is a greeting of peace.

b) He reminds him that Allah Ta‘ala is with him and watching him at all times. ‘Salaam’ is the name of Allah Ta‘ala.

c) He informs him that when he has greeted him with the greeting of peace, he is certainly his well-wisher and he will not harm him in any way (neither verbally, physically or in any other way).

The Arch Enemies of Islam – Abu Jahal bin Hishaam

Written by

Abu Jahal was the Fir‘aun of the ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). He left no stone unturned in expressing his enmity and hostility for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Several incidents demonstrating his hatred for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) have already been mentioned, and further such incidents will be mentioned in future as well. From the final words he uttered, as he was dying (the details of which will be discussed under the chapter dealing with the battle of Badr insha Allah), one will gain a clear gauge of the extent of his animosity for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

The Companion of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in the Cave of Thowr

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was the only Sahaabi who was divinely selected by Allah Ta‘ala to accompany his beloved messenger (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) during the journey of hijrah. Allah Ta‘ala mentioned Hazrat Abu Bakr’s (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) companionship with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in the cave of Thowr in the Qur’aan Majeed.

Hazrat Abdullah bin Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once said to Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), “You will be my companion at the haudh (of Kauthar) and you were my companion in the cave (during the journey of hijrah).” (Tirmizi #3670)

Hadith 20-21

Written by

20 – (19) عن أبي هريرة قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: قال الله تعالى: كذبني ابن آدم ولم يكن له ذلك وشتمني ولم يكن له ذلك فأما تكذيبه إياي فقوله: لن يعيدني كما بدأني وليس أول الخلق بأهون علي من إعادته وأما شتمه إياي فقوله: اتخذ الله ولدا وأنا الأحد الصمد الذي لم ألد ولم أولد ولم يكن لي كفوا أحد

21- (20) وفي رواية ابن عباس: وأما شتمه إياي فقوله: لي ولد وسبحاني أن أتخذ صاحبة أو ولدا (رواه البخاري)

It is reported from Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said that Allah Ta‘ala said, “The son of Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) (man) has denied Me, and it is not right for him to do so, and he has spoken ill of Me, and it is not right for him to do so. As for his denying Me, then it is his statement, ‘Allah will never resurrect me (in the Hereafter) as He created me initially,’ whereas creating something for a second time is not more difficult for Me than creating it the first time (i.e. both are equal for Allah Ta‘ala). As for his speaking ill of Me, then it is his statement, ‘Allah took a son,’ whereas I am the only one and I am As-Samad (i.e. the One who is completely independent of the creation while the creation is completely dependent upn Me), I neither begot nor was I begotten, and there is no one like me.”

In the narration of Hazrat Abdullah bin Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma), the following wording appears, “As for his speaking ill of me, then it is his saying that I have a child, whereas I am exalted and pure from taking a wife or a child.”

A Believer’s Mindset when Earning Wealth

Written by

عن أبي هريرة قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : من طلب الدنيا حلالا استعفافا عن المسألة وسعيا على أهله وتعطفا على جاره لقي الله ووجهه كالقمر ليلة البدر ومن طلب الدنيا حلالا مكاثرا مرائيا لقي الله وهو عليه غضبان (المصنف لابن أبي شيبة الرقم: 22625)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever seeks the dunya in order to earn a halaal livelihood, safeguard himself from begging, provide for his family and to show kindness to his neighbours (by assisting them with his wealth), he will meet Allah Ta‘ala (on the Day of Qiyaamah) with his face shining like the fourteenth full moon, and whoever seeks the dunya in a halaal manner, but (his intention is) to amass the wealth of the world and to show off to others, he will meet Allah Ta‘ala (on the Day of Qiyaamah) while Allah Ta‘ala will be angry with him.”

Written by

Gentle Disposition and Assisting People

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was a person who was well known and respected among the people of Makkah Mukarramah and the surrounding tribes. He was beloved to the people and had a gentle and soft disposition. Among the Quraish, he was regarded as the most knowledgeable person in regard to the lineage of the various tribes of the Quraish. He was a businessman who possessed excellent character and virtue. Due to his knowledge, business acumen and sterling qualities, people would come to him and confide in him regarding their affairs. He would spend on the poor and needy and assist people in difficulty and hardship. Through remaining in the mubaarak company of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), the beautiful qualities of nubuwwah rubbed onto him, until even in the sight of the kuffaar he was highly praised for his noble character, sublime generosity and assisting the creation at the time of difficulty.
