Ali he was hired to he woman subbiah humble son in either yo Medina Baba.
Respected brothers, elders, esteemed guests sisters salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
I have been given
the topic to speak about the best student
of the best teacher who ever walked on the face of this earth
Abubakar acidic Viola and
there was no man on the face of this earth.
Who was better than Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu after the MBR Alain salatu salam, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, after the MBR
The sun has not risen upon a man better than Abu Bakar acidic above the alarm.
And I want to concentrate on a specific angle on the life of Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu
which he learned from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The purpose of Allah alayhi wa sallam came with his Dawa
Abubakar of the man who came back into Makkah. He was already a friend of the message of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And they said to Abubakar, they said you know your friend,
he regards himself as a prophet.
So we borrowed the alarm who went to the house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?
And he said, Mohammed, is it true what they're saying?
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, What are they saying?
He said, they're saying that you regard yourself as a prophet sent by Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Yes, I've come with a doubt of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam,
to call to one Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Abu Bakar of the alarm who embraced Islam there and then saying, I see nobody more deserving of profit than you are Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, every single individual that I presented the deen to.
They thought they hesitated. They took a step back. they doubted besides Abubakar sonica the alarm is no sooner.
Had I given him the Dow and he embraced the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
You know what they call this?
They call it social courage. You know what social courage is, is that when you know that you will take a stance and you will be shun polarized isolated by others, but you're courageous enough to do it.
The Abubakar on the line who learned this from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he knew the consequences of embracing Islam, but he embraced Islam and he remained the pig of Islam. On many occasions the mushrikeen endeavored to peel Abu Bakr radi Allahu away from the Messenger of Allah, but it never worked. One of the greatest examples of this is that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam went on the Miraj, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came out. And one of the first people he bumped into was Abu Jamal and Abu Jamal said sarcastically said Mohammed What's new? So the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said last night, I traveled from
Mecca to Jerusalem,
a puja house that you did this in the portion of last night. He said it doesn't stop there is a from there I went to the heavens. Then the Russians mentioned Abu Jamal place his hand over his head. He said you did all this in a portion of last night. And the Messenger of Allah said yes. Abu Jamal said if I gather the people of Morocco, are you ready to say this to them? The province or Muslim said yes.
So he gathers the people of Makkah
And the Messenger of Allah said to them, he said last night I traveled from Makkah to Jerusalem. They said, You did all this in a portion of last night. And the Messenger of Allah said, Yes. He said, why it doesn't stop there. From there. I went to the heavens. They said, You did all this in the portion of last night.
And he said, Yes. Then Rachel mentioned some began to clap. Some place their hands on their heads, some began to slap their thighs. The Missouri Keane said, here's our chance. Let's peel away the pig. Let's peel away the foundation, even aboubaker won't buy this one.
So they go to the Mr. anhu. And they say, Oh, boubakeur. You know what your companion saying? Is that what's he saying? They said he say that last night he tried to travel from Makkah to Jerusalem and from Jerusalem to the heavens and Abubakar rhodiola our colic our car wirkkala donec. Did he actually say this? And they said, yes, then
he is and
then he spoken the truth. Is that what's surprising about this? Often I sit in his company, and the angel Jabra il comes from the heavens, if on occasion Allah wants to call him to the heavens. what's so amazing about this? It was on this occasion, that Abubakar rhodiola and who was given the title of siddik
People send you away. Baba Bakar of the new remain firm. He was a brave individual.
I asked you as a community. Do you have social courage?
Are you ready to speak the truth?
Or is it Mohammed becomes mo
RF becomes hairy.
Is it a you're embarrassed? Salah time? If you're in a mosquito pray, but if you're at the train station, a brain you're embarrassed? What are people gonna say? People are not scared to smooch in the train station, and you're embarrassed to bow your head on Allah subhanho wa Taala is
the life aboubacar of the Alanna shows us social courage. You know, when we talk about courage, we only know one courage and that is physical courage. You say about guy Oh yeah, he's really brave. He's really courageous. Only physical courage. Let me tell you about the physical courage of abubaker.
Ilana was a man who stayed with a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and through thick and thin through peace and war. Every time he was with the mercy of Allah, you know what Abu Bakar looked like? Let me tell you a Boubacar on the line who look like Abu Bakar eyeshadow the olana describes you will think he's a big man. Yeah. She says he was thin. how thin that his eyes that sank in his cheekbones protruded, the bones on his fingers were very prevalent. When he walked he had a stoop, stoop
he was so thin that his trousers would not remain around his waist. The Sahaba say
the above Abu Bakar was the weakest in body but the strongest and the brave was from amongst us. Maha Savonarola. See why? Because bravery isn't here. bravery is here. You can have all this, but you can have the heart of a kukri.
You know a kukri means a half a chicken.
You can have it all there.
alira delana. When said who was the bravest amongst the Sahaba after the demise of abubaker. They said, you know the guys around the middle of the garden on Rhonda said You owe me no more meaning you, you you. He said no. He wasn't mean. Let me tell you who he was roseola and who led bravery. He did in the Battle of the Marines out of the same t mushrikeen. Who will kill a T will kill on the hands of Ali. Oh, how'd he do? He defeated on the Battle of 100 he defeated Amara Abdullah would the man they say that the women when they children want to go to sleep they will say go to sleep. I'm gonna open up the woods. We'll come on the battle haber. He beat the famous Jewish warrior might
So they said you mean and he said it wasn't me. The brave was from amongst them was Abu Bakar Sadiq rhodiola and who he said on the first battle of butter.
They said who will defend the province of La Salaam. The man who defend the province of Muslim cannot move you will have to stay there. He said everybody hesitated. Abu Bakr
jumped up and he said I will defend him. Then racially mentioned that the Sahaba say wherever we looked on the Battle of Abu Bakar was there, the Abu Bakr cave the thing man, no big biceps with a man at the heart. He had a heart.
Let me tell you, you know, you know when people get scared, they generally wanted to do that they cry, they winch. Let me tell you what,
when it was the time for migration,
the Sahaba would come to the message of a lion they will say unless you have a lock, can we migrate and the burgers are lost and I'm would give them permission. So Brubaker came to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said, O Messenger of Allah, I want to migrate to Medina has a purpose. A lot of them said, Wait, maybe Allah will give you a companion.
eyeshadow, the Allah Allah says the Messenger of Allah would come in the morning and the evening to a house every single day. But one day he came at the whole time. When the sun is at the Senate, in the Arab Peninsula, people wouldn't come out when it's hot. And he came to the house because nobody would be watching him. And he went up to a boo boo, boo. And he said, I've been given permission to migrate.
a samba rasulillah companionship and message of Allah. Can I can I accompany you? And the mercy of Allah said
before you is companionship abubaker began to cry. eyeshadows Yolanda says this was the first time in my life, I saw a man crying out of happiness. What was he getting himself into? He was getting he was gonna risk his life, the machine again and put a booty a bounty of 100 camels on the head of Abu Bakar and mercy of Allah, dead or alive, but the man Subhan Allah is giving his life or the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he doesn't care.
He doesn't care. And then when they reached the cave, so while I'm Allah and the end the narration mentioned that the machine follow them, and omega greenhealth came to the mouth of the cave. And Abu Bakr radi Allahu looked up.
And he said, O Messenger of Allah.
If they look at their feet, they will see us and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Yeah, Baba Cara mas de la COVID-19 allow Felisa home, Abu Bakar What do you think about those two allies, their third?
allies the third, and then Allah captures this in the Quran is the akula Swami in the law, when he said to his companion, the only person who in the Quran is mentioned as the Companion of the Messenger of Allah is Abu Bakar nobody less than in the llama Anna, do not grieve for Allah is with us. The Messenger of Allah didn't say, Allah is with me. He said, Allah is with us. This is the virtue of Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu. But let me tell you the greatest example of bravery in the life of Abu Bakar of the Atlanta the greatest example of bravery in the life of Abu Bakar or the Allahu anhu was the day the message of a law passed away.
Abu Bakar when he came in, he heard the message of a law passed away. He came into the machine, he walked straight through the machine, there was total and utter chaos. On top of saying, whoever says that the message of Allah has been killed, I will remove his head from his neck, who says he's passed away, I'll remove his head from his neck.
Before he is a monastic to say that
Ababa kharrazian roseola who enters the masjid, he sees all this chaos, he speaks to no one. He goes to the the way the province Allah Salam is lying. And he removes the cloth from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he kisses the message of Allah on his forehead. And he says tip, if the Hadean omega to Dr. Salalah he said you are beautiful in life and you are as beautiful in depth
and then comes out
aboubaker the softhearted one
all the Sahaba in a state of confusion. He says to overcome down Omar calm down and Omar is not having it. Why was Abu Bakar not crying today was everybody else's crying.
You know, the poet says come to errata Moti punto, arakkal multiman benei sathon working for Benin, Ghana model fashion. He said separation from you for a moment was like death for me. What about that separation when the next time
See you will be on the Day of Judgment. This was the Sahaba state.
So why wasn't Abu Bakar crying when everybody else was crying? I say because Abu Bakar had cried is crying. When the verse is larger and a tsunami one foot was revealed, the Sahaba were happy that the help of Allah will descend. But Abu Bakr saw the latter part of the surah were allies telling the Messenger of Allah to do the speed to do Toba. He understood that this was an indication that the time of the Messenger of Allah was close. Three days before the prophet SAW Allah Allah was along past the way.
The Messenger of Allah was feeling better, he came out, he prayed Salah, and then he ascended the pulpit and when he ascends to the pulpit, he begins to give a talk. And he says, A man has been given a choice, either to remain in this dunya or return to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the man has chosen to return to Allah subhanho wa Taala. The Sahaba thought he was just giving an example, given a parable. aboubaker understood what he meant and he began to cry. I will say that 100 of the alignment said I couldn't understand why this old man was crying for and the message of Allah said, Oh, Booker, calm down.
Calm down, calm down. abubaker was crying.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever has done me a favor in this dunya I have repaid them as for Abu Bakar Allah will repay him on the Day of Judgment.
