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)

Similarly, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) bore testimony to the Imaan of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) being greater and weightier than the combined Imaan of the entire ummah. Hazrat Abdullah bin Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “If the Imaan of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) has to be weighed against the Imaan of this entire ummah, his Imaan will be more weighty than the Imaan of the entire ummah.” (Al-Maqaasid-ul-Hasanah #908)

It is in accordance to the level of one’s Imaan that one will be rewarded for the good deeds that one carries out. The greater one’s Imaan, the higher the reward one will receive for one’s good deeds. Thus, when the Imaan of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was the greatest, then Allah Ta‘ala blessed him with the highest reward from the ummah for all the good deeds he carried out. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Abu Bakr is the best person (after the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam)) on whom the sun ever rose or set.” (Majma’uz Zawaa’id #14314)
