Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
Carrying on inshallah we will carry on this week with the life of a provocateur speaker of the alando and carry on with focus on some of his characteristics. And one of the characteristics I want to focus on or start with is the humbleness of Abu Bakr, Siddiq allottee Allah now,
to be humble, especially when you're in their position and status is a lot more difficult when you have nothing in your nobody.
This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the most despised of people, one of the ones who was the most despised of people, is a *y is a pauper who is haughty. He has nothing, he is nobody but he still haughty.
So for people who are of status to be humble, it is a great test and that's where the reward is.
And the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam guarantee this whoever humbled him, for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah will take it upon himself to elevate that person. But then there is even law said, Whoever is haughty that Allah will take it upon himself to abase that individual. So Abubakar
doesn't necessarily have to overlook people, but it does because of the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. So one day a man he curses him and he says to him, he says, I'm going to curse you and I'm going to curse you in a manner that my curses my swear that you will go with you into the grave.
So what about the Allah Allah replies calmly, he says, Your swearing won't go with me in my grave but it will surely go with you and your grief.
You know, we'll go with you in your grave your swearing Allah will take that with, you know, in your grave with you. And this will look Abubakar Viola I know in the in this in the position of power, but abubaker of the alarm who overlooked as far as abubaker the individual
the narrations mentioned Abubakar of the Allah, Allah would be walking in the marketplace, nobody would be able to distinguish that this was a book, imagine this. Yoda halifa rasulillah
You're the most powerful man in the Hijaz and know what he knows you walk past people, and nobody knows that you are Abubakar civic.
And this is why on a pay occasion, I will walk out the door and Luke came to a group of people and they had come into the areas of a walker Delano went into the tent and he gave them Salam.
So there's a woman there she didn't give Salaam back to Walker city called the Atlanta so Walker went and he said, Why has this woman have given me Salaam? They said Oh, she's taken an oath. She's fasting. But what kind of fast? This was a fast we you would not speak this room. It was in the temperature here. The Arabs had this.
So Abubakar, the Allah who went to her and he said, this is an action of Jamie, we don't have this in Islam. You know you don't take an oath that you will fast. So then she asked him, Who are you? He says Mr. Mahajan
is an out of the Mojave rune Who are you? He said which which cloud which tribe? He said I am from the Quraysh. He said out of the Quraysh which clan is if you ask a lot of questions don't
let me tell you I am Abu Bakr Siddiq of the law. I have a
look at the Subhan Allah is the Khalifa rasulillah he goes to people and people don't even know who he is.
And this is why I won't lie you know he's his own statement is a Jeep statement. He made a provocateur speak about the law, he said. He said flee from honor and honor will follow you.
He said desire death and Allah will give you life. flee from honor. Honor will follow you on a follow the boubakeur of the Allah. flee from death. And Allah will give you life you know what kind of life Allah gave life to the bucket. You know what life today is a witness as sitting here is a witness to the fact that Allah gave Abu Bakar a spiritual life. There 1400 years after Abu Bakar speaker of the Allah Allah passed away, we are still sitting here remembering how
halifa thalasso de la here on the
you know, but this is the humility of Abubakar Sadiq or the Alanna. On another occasion, as I mentioned ibaka rhodiola and who, you know, would get angry.
And you will see this throughout the life of ibaka, Speaker of the alum. So we're working on the alarm and who was dealing with the affairs of the Muslims.
So a group of people, they bring some camels and the lady says to her husband, take these reins of this camel and give it to Abubakar.
Now, look at all the Alon who is busy.
So this man comes at a book about the alarm system. I'm busy, but he doesn't go back. He actually intervenes in the discussion and their face and they were dealing with the face of the Muslims.
Takes the rain and he hits him with the rain.
Now aboubaker realizes what he's done is wrong.
So right away, right away. abubaker of the alarm knowledge only realizes right away. It gives the rain to this man is definitely far he says hit me back.
So the man refuses. Omar
is sitting at home or the Atlanta thing said don't do that.
He said don't do that. Because every time that Khalifa makes a mistake
it will become a sinner and the people will say we want to beat you like you beat us or we want to you know wrong you like you wronged us because aboubaker did this is a don't do this don't start this summer. Eventually I'm gonna have no habla de la No, he convinces Abubakar acidic rhodiola. And when he says to him, Look, make this person happy in a different way. So we're working on the alarm now gave him for dinner dinner. It's a gold coin very expensive. He gave him four gold coins. He said, Are you happy?
You know, on the day of judgment, I won't have you standing in front of me and asking me for retribution. And the man said that he was happy. So see, from this, you understand? Look so Pamela people who are God conscience conscious people who are God conscious, they will always be concerned about doing wrong to others, and they will prefer that the person take revenge and dystonia. Now personally, I will back up a speaker of the language halifa rasulillah you know, you don't you really ate yourself like this generally.
But because he made a last panel about that was the difference or book about the alarm. He knew
that accountability in this dunya is easier than accountability in front of the entirety of Benny
from first man to the last map in front of Allah subhanaw taala in front of the mbls slob you know today we feel him we embarrassed. Imagine on that day How embarrassing we will be when you will have the Wrath of Allah subhanho wa Taala so therefore, if we ever wrong anybody asked for forgiveness in this dunya rather than hoping for the Day of Judgment
hyah Abubakar, Hey, everybody, I
almost be bashful in front of our last panel Adela for I take an oath by the one who controls my life. They even when I go to relieve myself.
I cover my private parts. So even when he would go and relieve himself, he would cover his private parts. Now, it was an obligation for him to do that. But this was his hire. And the person who had the greatest hire out of all this a habit of the law was who
was smart was mighty marathoner rhodiola. And so this was the hire of workers today. Guardiola moving on to the knowledge
of ibaka Viola Anu is known
as the most knowledgeable out of this all the Sahaba of the alignable. Why was this? One of the reasons one of the reasons was the abubaker Allah Allah remained in the company of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam more than anybody else.
More than anybody else who remained in this company, it may boss about the alarm who said
when Barbara Vila was passing away, and he was concerned about alpha, he said, Oh ameerul momineen. How many times he said, he said, the message of Allah left this dunya and he was pleased with you said how many times I heard the message of Allah, Allah, Allah, himself say, I came here with Abu Bakar and Oman. I left this place with Abu Bakr and Omar rhodiola. And so he was in the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, more than
Anybody else? I'm gonna go hottub rhodiola and embrace Islam approximately about six years later, but he embraced Islam straight away when the call was, and this is why Mr. Malik, Laila. Hello so beautiful. Mr. Mallika Rahim. Allah was asked by the Hanif, he said what was the status of Abu Bakar and Omar with the Messenger of Allah whilst he was alive. He said, The status with the Messenger of Allah while he was alive is like their status with the Messenger of Allah whilst he is dead.
Like they are very right next to the Messenger of Allah after death. Similarly in life, they were like that with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So Omar, Omar who speaks
about the knowledge of Abu Bakr rhodiola he says that the Messenger of Allah would often spend all night
discussing with Abu Bakar Sadiq about the Allah and who regarding the fate of the Muslims. So the Messenger of Allah will do Mashallah with Abu Bakar Sadiq regarding the fate of the Muslims. Now there's a heavy list or a dream
that the problem that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is drinking a glass of milk
or the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself saw the dream
that he is drinking a glass of milk
and all he says I can see the milk going through my entire body.
Until I can see it in my veins I can see through my infects my skin he even reaches my nails.
He says then is a bit of milk left over and I give it to Abubakar Sadiq of the Allah
the Sahaba they do the interpretation so messenger of Allah does this mean there is milkmen in the message of Allah said yes, it means
so out of the Sahaba
there was nobody who was as knowledgeable as Boubacar Sadiq radi Allahu anhu to the degree
that MLK will Josie Rahim Allah says that if Abu Bakr and Omar have a disagreement, we take the opinion of Abu Bakr, Siddiq Rotella
and then he goes on further to say that it's never within his life. Did Abu Bakar of the ahmadu ever contradict the arc of the sun
in all his fatwas, he never ever contradicted the Quran. Although some scholars say he did on one place and I will cover that later on. And that was when it came to burning a person burning a rebel called the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said learn to exhibit a tabula do not punish with the punishment of Allah meaning burning.
So there is only one I will deal with inshallah more detail later on. There's only one place within his lifetime that he ever contradicted the teachings of the all web country to the teaching of the profits and loss of never ever anywhere else did he give a fatwa which contradicted the teachings of the Messenger of Allah Allah Allah Allah he was
in a bus and the bus or the Allahu, who is who in a bus is the man the province of masala made a dwarf especially for him, Allah faqeer within what a limb huta we all are given the ability to understand the poor understand the fic and understand the deep interpretation of the the profit and loss of them made this duar and unanimously everybody knows that this dwara was accepted regarding a Bosu Radek regard the Hebrew Lama you know, the most knowledgeable and the greatest of all the Allah Ma, he would say.
I look in the Quran, I look in the Sunnah. Then I look in the fatwa the abubaker and Omar and after I look nowhere else,
so even him who was the most knowledgeable or to the Sahaba or the Allah at home, he would take the opinions of Abu Bakr Siddiq
Abu Bakar anytime anytime really literally anytime there's a habit of the Allah Adam had an issue they would go to Abu Bakr radi Allahu he will resolve let me just give you a small example which we will cover gel in the next couple of weeks. the demise of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So demise of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the Sahaba are all confused. Who comes to resolve the issue of ibaka de Colombia lon.
They're not sure where to bury the province en la sala Abubakar de la brings a delete they should be buried where he passed away.
Then you have the issue of the mirror and the inheritance of the province of Muslim who resolved the issue mirror of Abu Bakar speaker of the alarm. Then you have the issue of the army of Osama bin Zayed which will dispatch who resolved that Abubakar speaker of the land. Then you have the issue of those who won't give the Zakat who resolved that Abubakar
whenever the Sahaba had an issue, after the demise of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they went to Abu Bakar as a deacon of the Allah, he resolved the most knowledgeable out of the Sahaba that means let me let me show you the humility of this map of the Allah
he was asked
this the verse *y
looked at it I know what * it means but I'm not sure what bombings
so the man says to him
you know you're the most knowledgeable the closest to the message of Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah. You don't know. You know know what I'm by means maybe give it a try
working on the alarm and says this it he says which heaven will shade me?
Which earth will be me? If I say regarding the book of Allah, something that i don't know i don't have
which heaven will shade me which earth will be me. If I say regarding the book of Allah, that which I don't know. Look at this upon Allah unanimously unanimously the most knowledgeable person after all, after the all the Amelie salatu salam look is humility.
This is knowledge of welcome of the learner. Another speciality of abubaker acidic of the Allah was dreams.
We have you know, the famous interpreter of dreams, a monastery in the Rahmatullah la he has an author book in English. Many people know him although the attribution is debated did the writer didn't write it but he was known, but unanimously again, the most knowledgeable regarding dreams in this oma after the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam was Abu Bakr Siddiq
in front of the Messenger of Allah He interpretated dreams and the prophets Allah Salaam said you have what your spoken is, right? If you remember, on the occasion of bife when the hand picked the utensil and he fell down, he interpreted professionalism said right, On another occasion one of the Sahaba of the Allah I'm home came
and they said, O Messenger of Allah, we saw a dream
that there is a cloud going by.
And from the cloud, there is honey and fat coming down.
And that honey and fab comes down, some people take abundantly, some take a little.
And then a rope comes down from the heavens, which connects the Earth to the heavens, and you almost evil I see that you are climbing this rope.
So he tells this dream, so woke up, the alarm was sitting there and I woke up the alarm so massive, Allah gave me the permission that I interpreted this dream to progress the lesson to go ahead. So look at all the alarms that you know that cloud that clouded Islam,
the honey and the fat
is the Quran and its sweetness.
And people, many people take it abundantly, take the Quran abundantly and benefit from it, and some don't take much from it. And he said, You know the rope message of Allah, that room, that rope is your connection, that what you upon is the truth. That is from Allah subhanho wa Taala
and you're climbing on it, you're climbing on it towards Allah subhanho wa Taala is also a proof upon the stainless fasteners and that Allah is elevating your status. And then the narrator says, After that obviously you will love what happened is that the second man tried to climb but it broke
and then the rope join gained.
So abubaker Allah Allah said O Messenger of Allah, that rope is joined again me that others will climb it as well will follow your precept yo Holly for those who will come after you the Prophet sallahu wa Could he have spoken the truth. So in front of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam abubaker Allah and Muhammad interpreted dreams. Now one of the assumes general assumes is that you shouldn't tell your dreams unless the person knows something about interpretation of dreams or, you know, we shouldn't tell you a dream really
Lily and this is why after the Salah after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after for just a law professor Lawson would turn around and he would say, has anybody had a dream? And they would tell the professor Lawson abubaker when he became the bailiff, he would do the same. He
said, has anybody seen a good dream that you want to tell me about?
So, welcome Lila and I would say that a good a person who does woowoo and goes to sleep and then has a good dream is more beloved to me than this and that mean is very, very precious to me. So let me give you a few examples of the interpretations of avocado the alarm who many have been recorded that just give you a few
look at the eyeshadow the alarm ha came to her father, and she said, I saw cows being slaughtered around me.
So look at the alumna said if that's the dream that you have had the know that time will come that people will be slaughtered around you people will be killed around.
So in which battle were people slaughtered around in the Battle of Jamal
when she was in charge of the army against earlier the alarm who many people were slaughtered around, they were looking after a camel and many were slaughtered.
In another ration. Another dream A man came to him. And he said halifa rasulillah I saw a dream that I am urinating blood.
So he said to me,
what you are saying is the truth. There my interpretation of the dream
is that you? they asked him a question. So tell me, are you having a relationship with your wife while she's in her? menses?
And he said, Yes. He said fear Allah subhanaw taala. That's why you are having this dream.
On another occasion, I shared on the again,
within the lifetime of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she asked him to back up this dream. She said, I saw a dream that three, three moons come and land in my house.
So woke up the alarm who told us that this means that three pious individual to be buried in your house, like light law in the law. So when the Messenger of Allah was buried in the house, abubaker reminded her of the dream.
You remember the dream that he told me? Here's where it starts. Second was like Allahu Allah Himself. The third was on top of the alarm. On another occasion, a man came to Abubakar acidic or the alarm, and he said, Khalifa rasulillah I saw a dream that the Jarl is following me.
And I climb up the wall. So the job is following me and I climb up the wall. And then what happens is that the job comes very, very close to me and the earth opened and it swallows me.
robocall, the alarm said if your dream is true if what you're telling me is true,
then know that you will be tested. Regarding your religion in your day you will be tested why the gel calibration law Sallam said the biggest the greatest fitna from the time of other la salatu salam will be the fifth of the Zhao and they won't be a fitna in anything else besides your religion.
So these these were he was at some Hamelin expert and interpretative dreams
were Casa de Caro, the alarm.
Also another occasion the province of Omar Ali Salaam, said in the virtue of Abubakar Sadiq, about the embargo, he said,
he said, a man will enter into genda and all the inhabitants of Jannah will welcome this person.
All the inhabitants so imagine everybody in general is welcoming this person.
So we're back on the lava Illa Halo look at look so panelists, messages are telling me what action this person does. He wants to be that person. Tell me what action is person that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, Oh, that person will be here.
You don't have one action. You know, you have so many actions. On another occasion. He goes given the glad tidings of Jannah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told Abu Musab Ashley who is the gatekeeper of somebody knocked on the door. Double Moosa. Who is it? He said Abu Bakar is a given the glad tidings of
There's a knock did a knock on the door later on?
And he said Who is it? He said, Omar Thomas Ebola said given the tightening of job, another knock, said Who is it? He said of man. He said, Give him the glad tidings of Jenna but tell him he will be tested.
He will be tested. And obviously, he was martyred in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And there are other virtues of Abu Bakar Sadiq Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam message of Allah said himself. He said that aboubaker is the best of this abubaker is the best format
that no man is better than Abu Bakar. In another ratio above is Allah Some said that the sun has not risen upon a man who is better than Abubakar city.
As you listen, the sun has not written upon a man who's abetted Abu Bakr Siddiq of the alarm, the most beloved to the profit and loss out of the Sahaba of the line. After Ayesha out of the men, the most beloved was Abubakar Siddique La Jolla. Now, question
and this question, why was abubaker Why was he the best of this?
What was the reason?
Because the olana wasn't martyred like Omar No, man.
He wasn't persecuted, like sohaib kebab, Bilal. And the others actually he was quite, you know, in an honorable position, comparatively.
He didn't go through hunger, like others, how about the Allah when they didn't have anything to eat?
You know, he wasn't blind, like I don't like to have the AMA and
he didn't lose huge members of his family like others a habit of the Allah at home. So why? Why was Abu Bakar of the law, what was the status? Why would they have this data ma my conclusion is, is that Firstly, because of is a man
a man is something you cannot measure.
You can't measure it like Shahada,
like Salah like fast or the Sahaba lived longer than
they pray longer Salas that Abu Bakr, Siddiq Nagila. So first was his Eman.
was the love for Allah and His
nothing compared to his love for Allah. This was
never never in his life. Did he ever question the message of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, a Jeep? Never really say why overseer of Allah? Why does Allah bring this command? His love of Allah.
And you know, because of these two call the man and his love of Allah, the suit, you know, any action He did? The sincerity was unparalleled. So he didn't pray that Manish Salas.
He did it fast that much compared to others who live longer.
But it was the sincerity because of his love for Allah, the strength of his Eman and Abdullah memobottle kurama tamale he says very beautiful things.
He said how often a small action becomes heavy in the scale of Allah because of the intention behind it.
And how often a large a huge action.
Enormous action becomes insignificant in the eyes of Allah because of the lack of sincerity behind it.
So May Allah subhanho wa Taala elevate the status of workers of the Caribbean live on our behalf May Allah Subhana Allah grant his old sincerity, may Allah subhanaw taala allow us to have an element of the virtues of Abu Bakar Sadiq rhodiola in her life, man is a Jeep inspiration of the Allah and who there's so much other virtues of Abubakar of the Allah May Allah keepers united in the united in general with us Mark Alavi Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
