The Greatest Imaan of this Ummah

In his very lifetime, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) bore testimony to the lofty and exalted position of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). In one Hadith, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned, “The one who has the most mercy for my ummah is Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).” (Sunan Tirmizi #3790)

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Twenty Six

Written by

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had a slave who would work and give him the profits.

One night, the slave presented Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) with some food that he had earned. As soon as the food was placed before him, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) picked up a morsel and began to eat. Seeing this, the slave was surprised and asked, “Generally, you ask me regarding the source of my income. How is it that on this occasion, you have not asked me?” Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “I was overcome by extreme hunger due to which I forgot to ask you. Tell me where you acquired this food from.”

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Twenty Five

Written by

Silah bin Zufar (rahimahullah) reports:

When any person would make mention of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) in the presence of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), then Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) would say, “He is the one who surpassed everyone. The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) all regarded him as the one who went ahead of everyone.”

Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) then explained, “I take an oath by that Being in whose hand lies my life! Whenever we (the Sahaabah) competed in any good work, we found that Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) preceded us and surpassed us in doing it.”

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Twenty Four

Written by

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “There is no person who we have not repaid for the wealth he has given us (for the cause of deen) besides Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), as his kindness upon us is so much that we cannot repay him. Instead, Allah Ta‘ala will repay him fully on the Day of Qiyaamah. No person’s wealth benefited me (in the cause of deen) as much as the wealth of Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had benefited me. If I had to take anyone as my khaleel (bosom friend), then I would have surely taken Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) as my bosom friend. Know well that your companion (i.e. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)) is the khaleel of Allah Ta‘ala (i.e. the close friend of Allah Ta‘ala).” (Sunan Tirmizi #3661)

Note: The word ‘khaleel’ refers to a friend whose love and friendship has permeated the recesses of the heart, in such a manner that the heart cannot contain such love for anyone else. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had reserved this special love in his heart for Allah Ta‘ala alone.

The Greatest Person of this Ummah

Hazrat Abu Dardaa (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports:

On one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saw me walking in front of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Seeing this, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to me, “Do not walk in front of the one who is better than you.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then mentioned, “Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) is the best person (of this ummah) upon whom the sun rose or upon whom the sun set.”

(Majma‘uz Zawaa’id #14314)

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was blessed to accompany Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) on the journey of hijrah. When departing, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) took with him all the money that he possessed at that time, which was approximately five thousand dirhams, so that he could use it to assist Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in the path of Allah Ta‘ala.

Hazrat Sa‘eed bin Musayyib (rahimahullah) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “There is no man from the Muslims whose wealth benefited me (in the path of deen) more than the wealth of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).” Hazrat Sa‘eed (rahimahullah) thereafter mentioned, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would deal in the wealth of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) like his own wealth (i.e. on account of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) sacrificing everything for him to use for the cause of deen).” (Musannaf ‘Abdur Razzaaq #21319)

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Twenty

Written by

At the time when Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) accepted Islam, he possessed forty thousand dirhams. By the time he performed hijrah with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he only possessed five thousand dirhams, and at the time of his death, he possessed no money, as he had spent all his wealth in the path of Allah Ta‘ala.

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) would use his money to purchase and free slaves who were being punished and tortured by their masters for accepting Islam. The seven slaves whom he purchased and freed are: Hazrat Bilaal (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat ‘Aamir bin Fuhairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat Zinneerah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), Hazrat Nahdiyyah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and her daughter, the slave girl of Banu Mu’ammil and Ummu ‘Ubais (radhiyallahu ‘anha).

Spending His Wealth in the Path of Allah Ta‘ala

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “No person’s wealth benefited me as much as the wealth of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).” Hearing this, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) began to weep and said, “My wealth and I belong to you, O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)!” (Sunan Ibnu Maajah #94)

In the narration of Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) in Musnad Ahmed, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned, “No wealth benefited me as much as the wealth of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).” Hearing this, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) began to weep, and then exclaimed thrice, “In reality, Allah Ta‘ala blessed me with everything through you!” (Musnad Ahmed #8790)
