How did Abu Bakr رضي الله عنه accept Islam?

with one comment

أخرج الحافظ أبو الحسن الأطرابلسي عن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت: خرج أبو بكر يريد رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ وكان له صديقاً في الجاهلية ــــ فلقيه فقال: يا أبا القاسم، فُقدْتَ من مجالس قومك واتَّهموك بالعيب لآبائها وأُمهاتها، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم «إني رسول الله أدعوك إلى الله»، فلما فرغ من كلامه أسلم أبو بكر، فانطلق عنه رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وما بين الأخشَبَيْن أحد أكثر سروراً منه بإسلام أبي بكر؛ مضى أبو بكر فراح لعثمان بن عفان وطلحة بن عبيد الله والزبير بن العوام وسعد بن أبي وقاص فأسلموا، ثم جاء الغد بعثمان بن مظعون وأبي عبيدة بن الجراح وعبد الرحمن بن عوف وأبي سَلَمة بن عبد الأسد والأرقم بن أبي الأرقم، فأسلموا رضي الله عنهم، كذا في البداية

‘Aisha رضي الله عنها narrated that: “Once Abu Bakr رضي الله عنه came out to search for Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم . Both were friends from pre islamic days. On finding him, Abu Bakr said,”O Abul Qasim (صلى الله عليه وسلم )! I do not find you in the meeting of the nations (ie tribes); and people accuse you of cursing their forefathers.” He replied, “I am the messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم ) and I invite you towards Allah.” As soon as he finished his talk, Abu Bakr embraced Islam. The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم ) became very pleased with Abu Bakr’s Islam as no one among those living between the two hills of Mecca was pleased. Then Abu Bakr went to ‘Uthman Ibn Affan, Talha Ibn ‘Ubaidullah, Zubair Ibn al Awwam and S’ad Ibn Abi waqqas (رضي الله عنهم ) and invited them towards goodness (ie Islam). They also embraced Islam. The next day, he went to ‘Uthman Ibn Maz’un, Abu ‘Ubaidah Ibn Al Jarrah, Abdur Rahman Ibn ‘Auf, Abu Salamah Ibn “Abdul Asad and Arqam Ibn Abul Arqam (رضي الله عنهم ). They also embraced Islam.
