01 Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq: Ancestry and Attributes
He is the first Caliph after the Prophet Muhammad (prayers and
peace be upon him). His name is Abdullah bin Abu Quhafah
Uthman bin Aamer Al Qurashi Al Taymi, His lineage joins with
that of the Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) six
generations before himself, in Murrah Ben Kaáb. It was broadly
agreed on naming him Al-Siddiq (The Truthful), for the reason
that before Islam he was one the chiefs of Quraish and one of
their consultants, and he was well-known of his truthfulness and
honesty. In the presence of Islam, Abu Bakr was the first man to
respond and believe the Prophet Muhammad’s mission.
Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) was born in Makkah
in the year 573 CE (Christian Era), two years and some months
after the birth of the Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him).
Abu Bakr was brought up within his decent good parents, thus
he gained a considerable self-esteem and noble status. His father
Uthman, named Abu Quhafah, accepted Islam in the Day of
Victory in Makkah. His mother Salma, named Umm Al Khair,
she embraced Islam early, and migrated to Madinah.
Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) was a slim white man
with slight shoulders, thin face, sunken eyes, protruding
forehead, and was used to dye his beard with henna, these are
his physical constitution. Regarding his morality, he was
munificent, courageous, determinate, has got good sense in
intricate stances, tolerant, patient, strong-minded, jurist,
knowledgeable of genealogy and history, has a great trust and
reliance on Allah, devout, alienated from desires, abstaining
from the world and willing with Allah’s blessings, (may Allah be
pleased with him)


02 Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq in the Pre-Islamic Society
In the days of ignorance, Al-Siddiq (may Allah be pleased with
him) was a noble man among the tribe of Quraish and he was a
premium, they sought his assistance in intricate circumstances.
He was well-known of several qualities:
Genealogical knowledge:
He was well-informed of genealogy and Arabs history, so
proficient that he was a chief among others in this field, such as
Aqeel Ben Abi Talib and others, but he was distinguished with
his decent manner that he never disparaged ancestries, or
revealed blunders.
Trade:
He was a trader before Islam, and traveled to Busra in the land
of Al-Sham for trading. He traveled among many countries, his
capital was forty thousand dirhams. He used to spend his money
generously.
Noble-mindedness:
Al-Siddiq (may Allah be pleased with him) was remarkably
virtuous, even before Islam he had made intoxicants forbidden
for himself. He answered the one who asked him: have you ever
drank intoxicant? Saying: ‘I seek refuge in Allah, I never did it.’
Said to him: ‘why?’ He said: ‘I maintain my honor and preserve
my dignity.
Common sense:
Al-Siddiq (may Allah be pleased with him) has never prostrated
to an idol. Once, in a gathering of the Prophet (prayers and
peace be upon him) and his Companions, Abu Bakr said: “I have
never prostrated to an idol. As I approached adulthood, my
father -Abu Quhafa- led me to a chamber of idols. He said:
‘these are your grand elevated gods.’ And he departed. I
advanced to an idol and said: ‘I am hungry can you feed me?’ It
didn’t answer. I said: ‘I am undressed can you dress me?’ It
didn’t answer. I threw off a rock upon it, and it fell down.” Thus,
he was guided by his good manners, wisdom, and common
sense to avoid badness and depravity of the ignorance, and to
evade dishonest beliefs that contradict common sense, and
oppose sound perception and true virility.
Allah’s Blessings upon Al-Siddiq, he obtained great values, high
ethics, and good behaviors within the ignorant society. He was
well-known among the people in Makkah as a leader over the
others in morality, values, and ideals. Thus, he had never been
discarded or criticized for any deficiency among Quraish,
except for his being a Muslim.


03 His Acceptance of Islam
Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) has accepted Islam
after a long search for the true religion that comes in accordance
with common sense, human desires, sound intellects, and
rightful insights. As a trader, he traveled a lot, and roved between
deserts, cities, and villages all over the Arabian Peninsula. Thus,
he has got the chance to closely contact people with various
religions -particularly Christianity- he thoughtfully listened to the
speech of monotheism by those who held the banner of finding
the true religion.
Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq (may Allah be pleased with him) has
accepted Islam after an eager search, exploration, and awaiting.
His immediate acceptance for Islam was a consequence of the
steadfast friendship with the Prophet Muhammad (prayers and
peace be upon him). When the Revelation of Allah descended
upon the Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him), he started to
call the individuals to monotheism. The first choice of the
Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) was Abu Bakr, due to
his intimate friendship and nobility. Likewise, Abu Bakr knew
the Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) as a truthful,
honest, and noble person, that he has never been untruthful to
people, so how he would be untruthful to Allah?
The Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) confided Abu Bakr
about the new mission, saying: “I am the Messenger of Allah
and His Prophet, Allah Has sent me to inform His Message, I
call you to believe in Allah the Truth, by God it is the Truth. O,
Abu Bakr, I call you to believe in Allah only with no partners,
and not to worship other than Allah, and to sustain in
obedience for Allah”. Abu Bakr accepted it immediately without
a slight hesitation, then he promised the Prophet to support him,
and he did it. In this way, Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq (may Allah be
pleased with him) was the first adult free man to respond to the
Prophet’s call and to believe in the new mission.

When Abu Bakr embraced Islam, the Prophet (prayers and peace
be upon him) was overjoyed, as Abu Bakr was a source of
triumph for Islam, due to his intimacy with Quraish and his
noble character that Allah Has exalted him.
Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) did his best in
missionary, he immediately began to preach Islam to others.
Among the best people who accepted Abu Bakr’s invitation to
Islam were: Zubair ben Al-Awam, Uthman ben Affan, Talhah ben
Ubaid Allah, Saád ben Abi Waqqas, and others (may Allah be
pleased with them all). They all declared their Islam to the
Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) and offered primary
support and vast assistance to the Prophet (prayers and peace be
upon him). People continued to accept Islam, men and women,
all were honest advocates for Islam. Even though they were few
in number, they represented a battalion of missionary, and a
stronghold for Islam.
Abu Bakr and the few believers have suffered immensely due to
heir conversion to Islam. Abu Bakr was well-known of his
courage and determination. As the number of Muslims rose to
thirty nine, Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) asked the
Prophet’s permission to call the people openly to Islam. After
persisting in this request, the Prophet (prayers and peace be
upon him) gave his consent and they all went to the Holy
Mosque for preaching. Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with
him) delivered a sermon, which was the first ever in the annals
of Islam. When the unbelievers from among the Quraish heard
it, they fell upon Abu Bakr and the Muslims from all sides. Abu
Bakr was beaten so severely until he fell unconscious and was
near death. When he at last regained consciousness, he
immediately enquired: ‘How is the Prophet?’ In spite of all his
pain and injuries, his first thought was only for the Prophet, his
love for him was so unbounded that he considered himself with
nothing but the Prophet’s well-being.

This event implies considerable lessons for every Muslim who is
keen to follow those honest believers. The event highlights Abu
Bakr’s enthusiasm for the declaration of Islam in the presence of
the infidels, which signifies his strong faith and courage. His
main aim after his convection to Islam was to outspread
monotheism and to hoist the proclamation: No God but Allah,
Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. Additionally, the event
accentuates his eagerness to announce the rightful religion to
everyone, in spite of the cruelty of the infidels.


04 Migration to Madinah
When the Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) and his
Companions suffered immensely from the harm of Quraish, the
Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) commanded his
Companions to migrate to Madinah. As narrated by Aishah (may
Allah be pleased with her) that the Prophet (prayers and peace
be upon him) said to the Muslims: “I have had a vision in which
I have been shown the place to which you will migrate, a land
of palm trees between two mountains and two stony tract of
land.” Thus some of the Muslims migrated to Madinah, and most
of those who had left before for Ethiopia returned to Madinah.
Abu Bakr prepared to leave for Madinah also, but the Messenger
of God said: “Wait a little while for I hope to be permitted to
migrate as well.” Abu Bakr said: Do you expect so? May my
parents be redeemed for you! The Prophet (prayers and peace be
upon him) said: “Yes.” So Abu Bakr did not migrate in order to
remain with the messenger of God. He prepared two camels and
fed them well for four months to use them in their long journey.
The infidels from Quraish have noticed that the Prophet
Muhammad (prayers and peace be upon him) has got adherents
and supporters in another place, and they have noticed the
migration of the Prophet’s Companions. Fearing the departure of
the Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) from Makkah, they
planned to kill him. Hence, the angel Gabriel informed him to
leave Makkah.
It was noon, an unusual time for visiting, but the Prophet
(prayers and peace be upon him) went straight to the house of
Abu Bakr who knew at once that something important had
happened. Aishah and her elder sister Asma were with their
father, when the Prophet came in. “God Has allowed me to
leave the city and to emigrate,” he said. “Together with me?”
Abu Bakr asked. The Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him)
answered: “Together with you.” Then Abu Bakr Asked the
Prophet to take one of the prepared camels, the Prophet (prayers
and peace be upon him) agreed but with payment.

The Messenger of God and Abu Bakr had employed a man
named Abdullh Ben Oraiqet, to be their guide, he was an infidel
but they trust him and gave him their two camels and took his
promise to bring the camels to the Cave at mount Thaur (south
Makkah) after three nights. They met on time, and the guide led
the way beside the sea. Once the infidels from Quraish have
perceived the Prophet’s migration from Makkah, they offered
one hundred camels to the one who can bring him back.
Abu Bakr said: ‘I was with the Prophet (prayers and peace be
upon him) in the Cave and when I raised my head I saw the feet
of the people (he means the infidels), I said: ‘O Messenger of
God, if any of them should look under his feet, he would see us.’
The Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) Said: “O Abu
Bakr! What do you think of two persons the third of them is
Allah?”
The incident is described in the Glorious Qur’an as follows:
(( If you help him [Prophet Muhammad] not [it does not matter],
for Allah did indeed help him when the disbelievers drove him
out, the second of the two; when they were in the cave, he said
to his companion: “Be not sad, surely Allah is with us.” Then
Allah sent down his calmness upon him, and strengthen him
with forces which you saw not ))
[ Al-Tawbah: 40]


05 Selected Views from the Biography of Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq
(may Allah be pleased with him)


06 In the Battle of Badr
It is reported by Ibn Asaker that Abdul Rahman, the son of Abu
Bakr Al-Siddiq was with the unbelievers on the Day of Badr.
When he became a Muslim, he said to his father: ‘You were
exposed to me on the Day of Badr and I turned away from you, I
did not kill you.’ Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him),
said: ‘As for me, if you were exposed to me , I would not have
turned a way from you.’
In this situation, the greatness of the faith of Abu Bakr (may Allah
be pleased with him), is exemplified by the depth of his
truthfulness and sincerity in preferring the love of Allah and His
Messenger above everything else.
The Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) said: “None of you
would be considered a (true) believer, until I am more beloved
to him than himself, his children, his family, and all the people
in entirety.”
Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) truly applied the
guidelines affirmed in the Holy Qur’an. Allah the Great and the
Almighty Said:
(( You will not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last
Day, making friendship with those who oppose Allah and his
Messenger, even though they were their fathers or their sons or
their brothers or their kindred)) [Al Mujadelah: 22].
Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) would never love his
disbelieving son, due to his faithfulness to Allah and his
Messenger. It is the miracle of Islam, that embodied in its great
followers and their pure souls. Islam had liberated people from
their low desires and personal interests, which might expose people to immorality. Thus, nothing would hinder the Muslim
from following God and His Messenger, and the holy war.


07 Spending for God’s Sake
The occurrence of his spending are many, we display some of
them:
Allah’s Messenger (prayers and peace be upon him) said: “No
one has helped me without reciprocating it, except for Abu
Bakr, who has given me help, which Allah will reciprocate to
him in the Day of Resurrection. No one’s property has
benefited me to the extent of Abu Bakr’s.”
Umar Ibn Al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him) said:
‘Alla’s Messenger (prayers and peace be upon him) commanded
us to give charity, and it corresponds available property of mine.
I said: ‘Today I shall better Abu Bakr. I have never bettered him.’
Then I brought half my property. The Messenger of Allah (prayers
and peace be upon him) said: “What did you leave for your
family?” I said: ‘An amount like this.’ Abu Bakr came with all his
property. And the Messenger of Allah (prayers and peace be
upon him) asked: “What did you leave for your family?” He
said: ‘I have left Allah and his Messenger.’ Then I said: ‘I shall
never better you in anything.


08 The Day the Prophet Died
It is reported from Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with them) ,
that when the Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) died,
Abu Bakr went out while Umar was speaking to the people. Abu
Bakr said to him: ‘Sit down O Umar,’ twice, But Umar refused to
sit.
Abu Bakr said: ‘To proceed, if anyone amongst you used to
worship Muhammad, then Muhammad is dead, but if you used
to worship Allah, then Allah is Alive and shall never die. Allah
says:
((Muhammad is no more than a Messenger and indeed (many)
messengers have passed away before him. If he dies or is killed,
will you then turn back on your heels (as disbelievers) and then
he who turns back on his heels, not the least harm will he do to
Allah, and Allah will give reward to those who are grateful))’
[Aal-Imrãn: 144].
Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with them) said: “By Allah, it
was as if the people never knew that Allah had revealed this
verse before, till Abu Bakr recited it and all the people took it
from him, and I heard everybody reciting it.”
Umar ibn Al Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him) said: ‘my
legs could not support me and I fell down at the very moment of
hearing him reciting it, declaring that the Prophet (prayers and
peace be upon him) had died.


09 Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq the First Caliph in Islam:
His Reaction Towards Apostasy
It was not long after the death of the Messenger of Allah (prayers
and peace be upon him), when Islam became entangled in a
grave struggle from two directions: first with paganism that was
making a sudden comeback to the life and the second was with
the crusade that was simmering in the northern boarder of the
Arabian Peninsula; stifling the propagation of Islam and stalling
the entrance of its people into Islam.
Imam Al-Dhahabi said: ‘When the news of the death of the
Prophet spread, many groups of people among the Arabs
apostatized from Islam. They objected to pay the almsgiving.
Abu Bakr decided to fight them. Umar and others impressed
upon him to refrain from fighting them, but Abu Bakr (may Allah
be pleased with him) , said: ‘By Allah, if they refuse to pay a
rope which they used to pay at the time of the Messenger of
Allah, I will fight them for withholding it.’
Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) insisted: ‘How can you
fight with these people although the Prophet (prayers and peace
be upon him) said: “I have been ordered by Allah to fight the
people till they say: None has the right to be worshiped but
Allah, and whoever said it then he will save his life and
property from me except on trespass the law, and his accounts
will be with Allah.”
Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him), reiterated: ‘By Allah!
I will fight those who differentiate between the prayer and
almsgiving, for almsgiving is a compulsory right to be taken from
the property (according to Allah’s orders).’
Then Umar said: ‘By Allah, it was nothing, but Allah brought
relief to Abu Bakr toward the decision (to fight) and I came to
know that this decision was right.
Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) raised the banner of
war on all fronts. The desert never witnessed, even in the lifetime
of the Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) himself, such
grinding battles as those that occurred. But the men that were
trained by Muhammad (prayers and peace be upon him) upon
the recognition of the truth and total submission to it were
sincere to Allah in their deeds. They dealt idolatry a blow that
broke its spine and squeezed its soul until it faded into oblivion.
They equally drove away the Romans from the boarders. They
broke the spine of the apostates. Some of them came back into
the fold of Islam and others perished far estranged from it. In no
more than a few years, Islam triumphed and was seen and heard
(far and wide) while other religions were on the brink of
extinction.


10 Compilation of the Holy Qur’an
One of the greatest achievements Abu Bakr rendered to Islam
was the compilation of the Holy Qur’an. At that time, there were
hundreds of memorizers who had memorized the entire Qur’an
among the Companions during the life time of the Prophet
(prayers and peace be upon him), but the Holy Qur’an had
never been complied in a book-form, although its memorization
continued after the death of the Prophet (prayers and peace be
upon him). However, numbers of those memorizers had been
martyred in the various battles that had ensued after the
Prophet’s passing. Consequently, it occurred to Umar that steps
should be taken to preserve the Qur’an intact in its original
form, against any kind of risk, and he saw that it was not prudent
to depend exclusively upon those who had committed its
memory to heart. Therefore, he urged Abu Bakr to have it written
down in the form of a book. Abu Bakr at first hesitated because
this had not been done by the Prophet himself. However, after
some debate on the subject, he agreed and appointed Zaid ibn
Thabit for this work, Zaid hesitated at the thought of undertaking
such a momentous task, but he later took heart and began the
work. Zaid was the most capable person to be charged with this
because he had acted as an amanuensis to the Prophet (prayers
and peace be upon him), and one of the Companions, who had
learnt the Qur’an directly from him.
Zaid ibn Thabit (may Allah be pleased with him), said: ‘By Allah,
If Abu Bakr had ordered to shift one of the mountains from its
place it would not have been harder for me than what he had
ordered me concerning the collection of the Qur’an.’ He
continued, ‘I started locating Qur’anic material and collecting it
from parchments, scapula, leaf-stalks of date palms and from the
memories of men.’
The manuscript in which the Qur’an was collected, remained
with Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) till he passed
away, and then with Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) till
he depart this life, and finally it remained with Hafsah, Umar’s
daughter.
It is reported from Ali ben Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with
him), who said: ‘The one who has the greatest reward amongst
the people is Abu Bakr. He was the first to compile the Qur’an
between two slates.


11 Extracts From his Sermons and Speeches
The Prophet Muhammad (prayers and peace be upon him) died,
on Monday 12- 3- 11. H. (of Al-Hijrah: the migration to
Madinah), corresponding 9th of June 632 CE (Christian Era). In
that day most of the Companions pledged their allegiance to
Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq (may Allah be pleased with him) as the first
Caliph. The next day in the Mosque in Madinah, before Abu
Bakr led the prayer, Umar rose and addressed the assembly, he
bade them pledge their allegiance to Abu Bakr. All men rose and
pledged their loyalty to Abu Bakr. Then Abu Bakr rose and
delivered a speech saying:
‘You have elected me to be your first Caliph, and I am not the
best of you. If I do well, help me, and if I do wrong, redress me.
Truthfulness is loyalty and disregard for truth is treason. The
weak among you shall be strong in my regard, until I have
restored their rights, if God pleases; and the strong among you
shall be weak in my sight until I have wrested from him the rights
of others, if God pleases. If any group of Muslims cease the holy
war, Allah will afflict them with humiliation. If adultery spread
among people, surely Allah will enfold them with troubles. Obey
me as long as I obey God and His Messenger. But if I disobey
God or His Messenger you owe me no allegiance. Arise for the
prayer, God have mercy upon you.’
In this address, Abu Bakr demonstrated the role of an exemplary
Caliph of Islamic government.
Abdullah bin Aqim said: Abu Bakr once spoke to us. He said:
‘To proceed, I recommend to you the fear of Allah and to praise
Him, as it is due to Him, and to mix your desire with fear, and
merge your request with persistent humility. Verily Allah praised
Zachariah and the people of his household. Allah says:
((Verily, they used to hasten on to do good deeds, and they used
to call on Us with hope and fear, and used to humble
themselves before Us.)) [Al Anbiya: 90] Therefore, knew, O servants of Allah, that the Lord holds your
lives as a pledge for what is due to Him, and has taken your
covenant regarding it, and has purchased of you a little that is
perishable, in exchange for eternal abundance. Allah’s Book is
among you, whose light cannot be extinguished, nor its wonders
end. Therefore, seek your illumination from its light, and accept
counsel from His Book and seek light from it in the day of
darkness. Verily, He has crated you for His worship and has
appointed for you guardian angels honorable in the sight of
Allah writing down actions, who know that which you do.
Know, O servants of Allah, that you proceed and draw closer to
an appointed time, the knowledge of which, verily, is hidden
from you. Compete with one another in fulfilling the obligations
of your appointed times before your appointed periods are
completed, lest they cast you upon the evils of your works, and,
verily, there are some who have made over the obligations of
their appointed times on others, and have taken no heed of
themselves. Therefore, I forbid you to be like them. Then haste,
flee, flee for behind you is a nimble pursuer, swift of deed.’
– When death approached Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq (may Allah be
pleased with him), he called Umar bin Al-Khattab and said to
him: ‘Fear Allah, Oh Umar, and you should know that Allah has
recommended some actions for the daytime, He will not accept
that you do them at night. He has deeds for the night and will
not accept that you do them in the daytime. He will not accept
voluntary acts until you fulfill the obligatory duties. Allah will
make heavy the scale of whoever fills it on the Day of Judgment
with their following the truth in this world. The scale that is filled
with the truth today, will be heavy tomorrow.
The scale of good deeds will be light for whosever fills it with
following the falsehood in this world. The scale in which
falsehood is placed will be light tomorrow. Allah mentions the
people of Paradise and mentions them with the best of their
deeds. When I remember them, I say: I am afraid, I may not
catch up with them. Allah also mentions the people of Hellfire
and He mentions them with the vilest of their deeds and their
best deeds will be rejected. When I remember them I say: I wish
I am not among these people. A servant of Allah should be
hopeful and fearful, not too confident and not despairing of the
mercy of Allah. If you keep to my advice, nothing will be more
beloved to you than death and certainly it will soon come to
you. If you disregard my advice, nothing will be more hateful to
you than death and you cannot prevent it.’
Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) enclosed in this
advice the authentic general guidelines that are indispensable
for every Muslim to adhere to.


12 The Final Moments of his Life
Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her) said: ‘When Abu Bakr
became heavy with illness, I displayed this poem:
By your life! Affluence will be of no benefit
On the day that your throat rattles and the chest constricts.’
Then he uncovered his face and said: ‘ That is not right. Instead,
recite the verse of Allah:
((And the stupor of death will come in truth: This is what you
have been avoiding)).’ [Q: 19].
Abu Bakr recommended to Aihsah to bury him beside the
Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) . When he died, Abu
Bakr’s grave was placed adjacent to the Prophet, and it was dug
in such a way that his head was parallel to the shoulder of the
Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him).
Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) died on Monday
evening, 22- 6- 13 H. (of Al Hijrah: the migration to Madinah),
corresponding 23- 8- 634 CE. (Christian Era). He was sixty-three
years of age, and his caliphate continued for two years and three
months.
May Allah have mercy on Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq and be pleased
with him and assemble us among his company.
