Ramadan 2005 (30 Days 30 Topics)


Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (R.A)

Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (R.A) was the First Caliph.

His name was Abdullah and titles include “Siddique” (the truthful) and “Ateeque” (free from hell-fire).

He was born in the Holy City of Mecca about two years after the birth of the Prophet (S.A.W). He was a very honest, respected and wealthy man, who was blessed to be the first man to embrace Islam.

Hazrat’s love for the Prophet (S.A.W) was so immense that he never left Holy Prophet's (S.A.W) side and even migrated with the Prophet (S.A.W) to Madina Sharif, leaving his entire family in Mecca Sharif.

All his wealth and possessions were sacrificed in the name of Islam. Many slaves were freed by him, Hazrat Bilal (R.A) being one of them.

As well as being a very near and dear friend of the Prophet (S.A.W), he also later became His (S.A.W)‘s father in law too.

Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (R.A) passed away at the age of 63 and is buried next to the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) in Madina Shareef.

The Holy Prophet (S.A.W) once said “It is incumbent upon my Ummah to love Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (R.A) and be thankful to him”.
