About this episode

In this enlightening video, Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi uncovers the blessings and battles concerning the Great Sahaba and the first Caliph -  Abu Bakr As Siddiq RA.

Numerous facts and Hadith come to light as we see Shaykh Yasir unravel them in a mesmerizing manner.  

Some among them are

  • Participation in every battle that the Prophet ﷺ was a part of.

  • Strong defense of the Prophet ﷺ in the battle of Uhud even after facing disagreement from the opposing Sahabas.
  • Display of huge amount of sadness and regret on the issue of slander of Aishah RA during the Battle of Khandaq. So much so that Allah (SWT) revealed Surah Nur to set the matter to rest after having revealed verses clarifying the matter and clearing Aishah RA of any misdeed.
  • Advice to the Prophet ﷺ in the battle of Hudaibiyah to only fight when the situation demanded and also where Abu BAkr RA displayed anger in the wake of absolute necessity and not for the sake of it.
