Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu 'anhu) (22)

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).

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)

Called to Enter from All the Doors of Jannah

It is reported in the Hadith that on the Day of Qiyaamah, those who excelled in actions of virtue will be honoured by Allah Ta‘ala.

If they performed abundant nafl salaah during their lives, they will be called to enter Jannah from the Door of Salaah. If they excelled in giving charity, they will be called to enter through the Door of Charity. If they excelled in keeping abundant nafl fasts, they will be called to enter through the Door of Fasting.

Testimony of Entry into Jannah

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) possessed qualities which were so sublime that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned that the one who possessed such qualities would enter Jannah.

Love for the Ahl-e-Bayt

On one occasion, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) mentioned, “Maintaining ties with the family of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is more beloved to me than maintaining ties with my own family.” (Saheeh Bukhaari #3712)

From this narration, it is clear that Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) loved the Ahl-e-Bayt more than he loved his own family. This was on account of the Ahl-e-Bayt being the blessed family of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).
