 فقد ورد أن عليا رضي الله عنه قال ذلك على منبر الكوفة ، وسمعه منه الجم الغفير ؛ وكان يقول : ( ما مات رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم حتى علمنا أن أفضلنا بعده أبو بكر ، وما مات أبو بكر حتى علمنا أن أفضلنا بعده عمر

‘Ali  (رضي الله عنه) said on the pulpit in Kufa and a large crowd had heard it. ‘Ali  (رضي الله عنه) had said:

After the death of  Allah’s Messenger  (صلى الله عليه وسلم) we have to come to know that Abu Bakr  (رضي الله عنه) is the best amongst us all, and after the death of Abu Bakr  (رضي الله عنه) we have to come to know that ‘Umar  (رضي الله عنه) is the best amongst us.

Abu Qahafah (رضي الله عنه) accepts Islam

leave a comment »

Abu Qahafah (رضي الله عنه) is the father of Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه).

أخرج الطبراني عن أسماء بنت أبي بكر قالت: لما كان يوم الفتح قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم لأبي قُحافة: «أسلم تسلم». قال الهيثمي : رجاله رجال الصحيح. انتهى.

Asma bint Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنها) narrated that Rasulullah  (صلى الله عليه وسلم) asked Abu Qahafah (رضي الله عنه) on the day of victory (of Makkah):

Accept Islam and you will be saved (from calamities).

[Tabarani and Haythami said the narrators are authentic]

وعند ابن سعد : عن أسماء قالت: لما دخل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم مكة واطمأنَّ وجلس في المسجد أتاه أبو بكر بأبي قحافة، فلما رآه رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: «يا أبا بكر، ألا تركتَ الشيخ حتى أكون أنا الذي أمشي إليه؟» قال يا رسول الله، هو أحقُّ أن يمشي إِليك من أن تمشي إليه. فأجلسه رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم بين يديه ووضع يده على قلبه ثم قال: «يا أبا قحافة، أسلم تسلم»؛ قال: فأسلم وشهد شهادة الحق

According to Ibn S’ad, Asma (رضي الله عنها) narrated:

When Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) entered Makkah and he sat down comfortably in the Mosque (ie Masjid al Haram), Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه)  came to him with (his father) Abu Qahafah (رضي الله عنه). On seeing him, the Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah remarked, “Why did you give trouble to the old man, I would have visited him?” Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه)  said,”O Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah! This was his duty to visit you than you visit him.” Then the Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah let Abu Qahafah (رضي الله عنه) sit down in front of him and after keeping his hand upon his heart, he said, “O Abu Qahafah(رضي الله عنه) ! Accept Islam and you will be saved (from the calamities).” On this, he embraced islam and bore witness to the truth (ie recited the kalimah).

قال: وأُدخل عليه ورأسه لحيته كأنَّهما ثُغامة، فقالت: غيِّروا هذا الشيب وجنِّبوه السواد

It has been narrated that when Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه) brought Abu Qahafah (رضي الله عنه) , the hair of his (Abu Qahafah) head and chest were white like white grass. The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم)  said, “Change the whiteness of the hair but not with black dye.”

Not asking people for anything

leave a comment »

 وفى المسند ان ابا بكر كان يسقط السوط من يده فلا يقول لأحد ناولنى اياه ويقول ان خليلي امرنى ان لا اسأل الناس شيئا

It was reported in al -musnad that if Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه) dropped his whip (while riding), he would not ask anyone to hand it to him but he would say, “My close friend (Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) )  commanded me not to ask people for anything.”

…I never tried to beat him to something good but he beat me to it.”

‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) narrated that:

He stayed up late one night in the house of Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه) with the Messenger  (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah, discussing the affairs of Muslims. The Messenger  (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah went out and we went out with him, and there was a man standing and praying in the mosque. The Messenger  (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah stood and listened to his recitation, and before we recognised whose voice it was, the Messenger  (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah said,  “Whoever would like to recite the Qur’an fresh as it was revealed, let him recite according to the recitation of Ibn Umm ‘Abd (‘ Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (رضي الله عنه)).” Then the man sat and made du’a and the Messenger  (صلى الله عليه وسلم) started saying to him, “Ask, for you will be given, ask, for you will be given.”

‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) said, “By Allah, I will go to him tomorrow and tell him this good news. The next day, I went to him (‘ Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (رضي الله عنه)) to tell him this good news and I found that Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه) had beaten me to it.  I never tried to beat him to something good but he beat me to it.”

Will you not appoint a successor?

leave a comment »

‘Ali (رضي الله عنه) was asked, “Will you not appoint a successor?”

He said, ” No rather, I shall leave you just as Allah’s Messenger  (صلى الله عليه وسلم) left you. If Allah has decreed good for you then He will bring you together to select the best of you just as He made you choose the best of you after Allah’s Messenger  (صلى الله عليه وسلم) .”

This was an acknowledgement by ‘Ali (رضي الله عنه) just before his death that Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه) was superior in excellence.

Abu Bakr, ‘Umar and ‘Uthman (رضي الله عنهم) outweighed the entire ummah

خرج علينا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ذات غداة بعد طلوع الشمس فقال رأيت قبيل الفجر كأني أعطيت المقاليد والموازين فأما المقاليد فهذه المفاتيح وأما الموازين فهذه التي تزنون بها فوضعت في كفة ووضعت أمتي في كفة فوزنت بهم فرجحت ثم جيء بأبي بكر فوزن بهم فوزن ثم جيء بعمر فوزن فوزن ثم جيء بعثمان فوزن بهم ثم رفعت

‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) came out to them one day after sunrise. He said,

I dreamt before dawn as though I am given the keys and balances… I was put in a pan and my ummah in the other pan, and was weighed against them. I outweighed them. Then Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه) was brought and was weighed against them and he outweighed them. Then ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) was brought and he too outweighed them. Then, ‘Uthman (رضي الله عنه) was brought and he too outweighed them. Then it was taken away.
