The Biography Of Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq RA.vBy Dr. Ali Muhammad As-Sallaabee
About the Book
From the day he embraced Islam until the day he died, Abu Bakr As-Siddique Radhi Allahu Anhu â May Allah be Pleased with Him) was the ideal Muslim, surpassing all other Companions in every sphere of life. During the Prophetâs lifetime, Abu Bakr was an exemplary soldier on the battlefield; upon the Prophetâs death, Abu Bakr (R) remained steadfast and, through the help of Allah, held this nation together. When others suggested keeping Usaamahâs army back, Abu Bakr insisted â and correctly so â that the army should continue the mission which the Prophet (S) had in mind. When people refused to pay Zakaat, and when the apostates threatened the stability of the Muslim nation, Abu Bakr was the one who remained firm and took decisive action against them. These are just some of the examples of Abu Bakrâs many wonderful achievements throughout his life. I have endeavored to describe all of the above in a clear and organized manner. But more so than anything else, I have tried to show how Abu Bakrâs methodology as a Muslim and as a ruler helped establish the foundations of a strong, stable, and prosperous country â one that began in Al-Madeenah, extended throughout the Arabian Peninsula, and then reached far-off lands outside of Arabia.
