Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Kareem was early he was happy woman Sunny, Sunny Isla Yomi de robot. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.

00:00:24--> 00:00:46

Welcome to studying the life of the man regarding who the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the sun has not risen upon a man better than Abu Bakr Siddiq, karate Allah. Meaning after the MBR lm salatu salam, no man ever walked on the face of this earth better than Abu Bakr Siddiq, karate Allah.

00:00:48--> 00:00:49

The question arises,

00:00:50--> 00:00:53

why study Abubakar city, karate Allah and

00:00:54--> 00:01:01

the reason for this is that this was a man who was inspired by the greatest creations of Allah he was.

00:01:02--> 00:01:28

Look, we are social beings, we live in the world we have role models. People take different things as role models. As believers we believe the best role model is a messenger of Allah, Allah Allah allow us to look, look at Canada, comfy, rasulillah, Swan, Hassan and the Messenger of Allah you have a sublime character. You have the perfect example, par excellence.

00:01:30--> 00:01:30

The truth is,

00:01:32--> 00:01:41

everybody on the face of this earth who is a believer in the ultimate diety loves Allah. Allah everybody loves Allah.

00:01:42--> 00:02:01

Even agnostics who may not believe in a formal religion, who believe in a super being loved that big, but what is a lossy? How can we love Allah? Allah says, In quantum to a boon Allah for be oni you

00:02:02--> 00:02:14

say a message of Allah say O Muhammad, if you really really really love law, then follow my example.

00:02:15--> 00:02:35

In return, Allah will love you. So our love for Allah hinges upon the fact that we follow the message of Allah, Allah Allah Listen, if you do not follow the message of Allah, Allah will not love you, Allah will not love you. And therefore for a believer.

00:02:37--> 00:03:06

He must not only follow the message of Allah, but it is fundamental principle of our Deen that we love the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we love Allah and we love the Messenger of Allah. Why because the Messenger of Allah was chosen by Allah But not only that, see, the Messenger of Allah is a sin upon us. His favor upon us is greater than any parents FIFA. Because without the Messenger of Allah we cannot reach Jenna.

00:03:07--> 00:03:21

See, Omar was once walking with the message of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah. And he turned to the rescue of a lion. He said a message of Allah, I love you more than anything. I love you more than everything on the face of the earth. Besides wanting Russ myself,

00:03:23--> 00:03:35

the Messenger of Allah said no more. You cannot be a true believer until you love me more than everything else. Your parents, your children, the entirety of humanity.

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

Then Omar begins to think.

00:03:39--> 00:03:57

And after the word Omar says Mr. uvala now I love you more than myself. So I found it strange how come all of a sudden Omar change his mind, so then I found the commentary Monica Baba La La Mancha, Bobby says Omar realized that Omar is nothing without the message of Allah.

00:03:59--> 00:04:27

There is no Islam for Ahmad. There is no demand for Omar. There is no Jenna from Omar, there is no saving from the fire of jahannam. Without the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam Omar would be nothing without the Messenger of Allah, Allah Allah Allah, Allah. Omar became ameerul momineen later on because of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and therefore we are indebted to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Sahaba understood this.

00:04:28--> 00:04:50

And they love the Messenger of Allah par excellence, you know, for the Sahaba to be away from the Messenger of Allah for a little while, was unbearable. We have the example of Beloved, after the demise of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Beloved Look, I don't want to stay in Medina any longer. But like I said, why abubaker was the man who bought, beloved, who free belong.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

So he had an element of, you know, Assad upon him. He had a favor upon him, but he said know what

00:05:00--> 00:05:14

Bay to see these empty streets of Medina without the Messenger of Allah Subhan. Allah lives and so he left they couldn't be to remain in Medina without the message of Allah, Allah Allah. So this was the love that the Sahaba of the Allah had.

00:05:15--> 00:05:29

One day the Messenger of Allah was about to lead the prayer the Sahaba came in. And he said, obviously, if I have a question just before the prayer, and there's some other reason to mention that he was in the gathering, so the Messenger of Allah, I have a question. When is the final hour?

00:05:31--> 00:05:33

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam carried on with the prayer

00:05:35--> 00:05:36

after the prayer,

00:05:38--> 00:05:40

he turned around in the US who asked that question.

00:05:41--> 00:06:13

Is a meal missing for Allah? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said ma de la? Look, the mercy of Allah didn't answer his question could answering question that in only Allah knows, but it wasn't important message Allah said to what have you prepared for it? So look at this man, he says message of Allah, I don't have too many cells. I don't have too many fast meaning compared to many of the other Sahaba I haven't prayed that much. I haven't fasted that much. But one thing is for sure. I love Allah and His messenger.

00:06:15--> 00:06:25

I love Allah and His messenger. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah Omar Ahmed hub, man will be with that person that he loves in the hereafter.

00:06:26--> 00:06:41

And as Malik says, After Eman after Islam, there was nothing more beloved to the Sahaba Diwan Allah Juma he, then to know that in the hair after they would be with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam imagine this upon Allah.

00:06:42--> 00:07:07

That nothing after Islam, no parent, No uncle, nothing but to be with the message of Allah in janmaat this was the greatest nettement there was a Sahabi I became unwell. So the brother is a Lola and he was asked, Where is he? The receiver is unwell. He can't come to the masjid imagine this is so unwell. They can't come to the masjid. So the Prophet salaallah alayhi Salaam went to meet

00:07:09--> 00:07:14

the prophets, Allah Simpson was wrong to the mercy of Allah. I have no real illness.

00:07:16--> 00:07:26

No, there's no illness that you can diagnose but I have this thought which is making me unwell. The Messenger of Allah said was that thought said, obviously of Allah when you die, and when I die,

00:07:27--> 00:07:46

you will be in genma I may not be in Jannah therefore I will never see you again. So Pamela is not interested in going into gender for the sake of being in the presence of Jana. But he wants to go into gender for what to be with the message of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah. And then he said,

00:07:48--> 00:07:55

if I happen to go into Jannah, you will be in a higher agenda than I will be therefore I will never see you again.

00:07:57--> 00:08:02

The problem is Allah look, console, look at the supply of Allah he's unwell they can't get up.

00:08:03--> 00:08:05

Professor Lawson, Omar Ahmed,

00:08:07--> 00:08:12

who you love in this world, are the people that you will be resurrected him the hair after

00:08:13--> 00:08:16

that those other people that you will be resurrected.

00:08:17--> 00:08:29

And the man who remained in the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the most, who knew the Messenger of Allah the best, who was the closest to the Messenger of Allah, Allah Allah Allah was done with Abu Bakar silica.

00:08:31--> 00:08:36

remaining in the company of Saudi could mean the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam abubaker became Siddique

00:08:38--> 00:08:42

on the most important journey of the professor lesson on land.

00:08:44--> 00:09:02

Miraj may be even more important than this on land was the hijra. The Warriors Allah Sallam said, if it was not for the hegira I would have been a man from the south. But because of the history because you get to undertake the hijra. he happened to be from the Mojave throne. Who did he take?

00:09:03--> 00:09:19

He took Abubakar Sadiq, rhodiola. And Omar would say, to a day and a night in the life of Abu Bakar on the lannoo Omar would give all his actions and the actions of the entirety of his family for a day and night in the life of Abu Bakr Siddiq.

00:09:20--> 00:09:40

One of those was his the time that he spent with the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam in the cave, and the other was the width. The Messenger of Allah passed away how bucha remain firm, for the dean and for the oma. And they said for this, I would give the action of my entire life. Imagine remaining in good company.

00:09:42--> 00:09:52

What does it do to a person? What did you do to move up to remain in the company with Professor Lawson it made him acidic. Not only that, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, losing that amount of money

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

if the amount of abubakr was placed on one side of the scale and the man of the entire

00:10:00--> 00:10:36

of humanity was placed in the other side of the scale, the Eman of Abu Bakar would be heavier than the entirety of humanity. So Pamela, how did that come about? That came about by remaining in the company of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, and this is why Abu Bakar is the inspiration for us. Now, Abdullah bin Mubarak was once asked, here, you come to the masjid and you go, you never sit with us. He said, I don't need to sit with you. So why? said because I sit with the Messenger of Allah and the Sahaba. They said, deliberate. Mubarak, obviously came a long time after the time of the Messenger of Allah and the Sahaba

00:10:38--> 00:10:55

said, How is that possible? You know, how can you do that? He said, when I go home, I read the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam. When I read the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu I visualized as though I am the company of the message.

00:10:57--> 00:11:09

When I read the Athar of the Sahaba dovan ledger, my aim, it's as though I am sitting in the company of the Sahaba with one large mine, and that's what remaining in good company does.

00:11:10--> 00:11:27

To the degree that the Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam loved Abu Bakar. So so much, he was asked a message of Allah Who is the most beloved person to you? The Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam said, Aisha we said no but from the men who is the most beloved person to you. He said her father, so

00:11:28--> 00:11:29

double burgers

00:11:30--> 00:12:05

was only the father of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. The province of Lhasa had his uncle to live he had any his son in law alive, he had his cousins, everybody else, but even then the Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam loved aboubaker more than all of these people. Why? Because of the qualities of a book at hand. And where did abubaker get these qualities from the Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam, from the province of Lula. And I often say, really, we looked into history, I don't think you would ever find a friendship greater than the friendship of Abu Bakar and the Prophet sallallahu.

00:12:06--> 00:12:31

Never. Rebekah was the man who was ready to give everything for the Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam soccer and he sacrificed everything until he became the true greatest friend of the Prophet similar last three days before he's the mice. Professor lesson of it felt better. He came out after the Salah. He sat on the pulpit. And he said,

00:12:33--> 00:12:37

If I was to take anybody as a friend, would it be.

00:12:40--> 00:12:48

But the Brotherhood of Islam is enough. And then he said in the virtue of Abu Bakar, the Allah and who said,

00:12:50--> 00:13:02

Whoever has done me a favor in this dunya I have repaid that favor. As for Abubakar, Allah will repay him on the day of which we'll look at the virtue of Abu Bakar Sadiq of the

00:13:03--> 00:13:12

Messenger of Allah passes away. And then all of a sudden large portions of the Muslim world rebel who has to deal with it.

00:13:13--> 00:13:34

You know, they often say they say you got great shoes to fill. You know your father was a great man. Your uncle was a great man. Your boss was a great man. Now you're in charge. These are big shoes you have to fill. Never in humanity. Did anybody have to feel great issues and then that Abubakar had to fill up the profit some of

00:13:35--> 00:13:39

the shoes Abubakar had to fill up the message of Allah, there is no comparison.

00:13:41--> 00:14:03

He becomes a Salif. He's got the army of Osama bin Zayed you got the rebellion, you got people opposing you the Sahaba don't agree with your opinion. What's the difference? The difference is a newbie may make HD heart and He may be wrong in his heart, but Allah will never leave him to remain upon his error allowing aspiring provoca does not have this.

00:14:04--> 00:14:13

So aboubaker has to feel to a degree, you know is the Halle of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but he doesn't have revelation.

00:14:15--> 00:14:23

So he has to now deal with the oldest turmoil. I've studied the lives of all the whole of Iraq. You do not handle it in great detail when

00:14:24--> 00:14:35

his Caliphate was short, but it was the most difficult if Abu Bakar never had boubakeur did not remain firm, like he did.

00:14:36--> 00:14:43

Allah knows what would have happened. The Sahaba post and people opposed him, but he remained firm until

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

he made establish the hollyford destabilize the Muslim world. And then Omar the olana came and he grew it, but the foundation for the hollyford was laid by no other than Abu Bakar, Sadiq robiola, and who

00:15:00--> 00:15:12

borrow, probably spend less than and passes away almost crumbles sahaabah are all confused. And you know, they will study in more detail. I will bucha was the man that would they say he was the weak hearted one

00:15:14--> 00:15:15

or the soft hearted one.

00:15:16--> 00:15:25

He was the one who would cry all the time, every time a verse would be revealed regarding possibly the demise of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam pocket begins to cry.

00:15:27--> 00:15:34

Now, if that's the case, then today the Messenger of Allah has passed away. He should be crying even more.

00:15:36--> 00:15:39

Omar lying like Omar mountain like Omar crumbled on it.

00:15:42--> 00:15:44

And who does Allah give strength to

00:15:46--> 00:15:59

the one who would cry on the most smallest thing when is related to the Messenger of Allah Subhan Allah Allah Islam, but when the Messenger of Allah passes away abraca doesn't cry, because Allah had destined for Abu Bakar to be

00:16:00--> 00:16:10

the chosen Hanif of the prophets of Allah and himself. And this is what Allah gave a boubakeur that strength. And this is why anisum No, Malik would say,

00:16:11--> 00:16:23

would say we boast like foxes after the demise of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, Abu Bakar made this line turkey Amaro to say, if it was not for aboubaker, we would have been destroyed

00:16:24--> 00:17:04

and this is the man whose life inshallah we will study in great detail in sha Allah. Hopefully over 50 episodes we will study the life of Abubakar Siddique or the law and who the man who was the most beloved to the Prophet Salah Salem out of the males, the man who had to become the Halle fall to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the father of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the man for whom the entire oma is indebted to what he did for this Omar may have lost $1 elevate the status of workers of the Caribbean learner May Allah Allah give the trophy to appreciate his sacrifice May Allah keepers united dunya Reaganite is generous for the miracle of ECAM salaam

00:17:04--> 00:17:20
