Abu Bakr’s Address to Madinah

Posted in Uncategorized on January 24, 2009 by Usman

I hope everyone is in the best of health and in the state of increasing iman. In light of Barack Hussain Obama’s inagural address, below is the address of Khalifa-tu-Rasulilah (saw), Abu Bakr (rd) after the death of the Prophet Muhammad (saw).  The great companion embodied his wisdom and leadership in just a few words. His words were very strong and gave people the direction that was so bady needed at the time. I hope and pray that we Muslims living in the west can develop the Iman, taqwa, and leadership that Abu Bakr as Siddiq (rd) had. The heart needs to beat…and so we stay alive. Salaam.

 “O People! I have been put in authority over you and I am not the best of you. So if I do the right thing then help me and if I do wrong then put me straight. Truthfulness is a sacred trust and lying is a betrayal. The weak amongst you is strong in my sight. I will surely try to remove his pain and suffering. And the strong amongst you is weak to me I will – Allah willing – realise the right from him fully. When obscene things spread among any nation, calamities generally continued to descend upon them. As long as I obey Allah and His messenger, you should obey me, and if I do not obey Allah and His messenger, then obedience to me is not incumbent upon you”.

Salaam, I hope everyone is in the best of health and in the state of ever increasing Iman. I wanted the next few posts to be small but beneficial Ahadith. I hope I benefit from them as much as I want you all to benefit. I would also like some feedback from all the readers. What do you guys want to see more of?  What did you like that I have stopped posting? Inshallah, all suggestions are welcome. Keep me in your duas, as I am in much need of them. The heart needs to beat…and so we stay alive. Wsalaam.

Anas (rd) reported that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said ” None of you truly belives (has iman) until I am more beloved to him than his father, his child, and all of mankind. (Bukhari & Muslim)
