Those who had knowledge of the earlier scriptures knew not only about the awaited Prophet, May Allah bless him and grant him peace, but also his would-be Companion Abu Bakr, May Allah be pleased with him. The old man in Yemen was one of the knowledgeable. When Abu Bakr gave affirmative answers to all of his questions, the old man was unable to contain his excitement, and he shouted: '' I swear by the Lord of the Ka'ba that you are the one!''
'' If we were to rank the most blessed of all human beings, Abu Bakr,
may Allah be pleased with him, would surely take the first place
after the Noble Prophets, peace be upon them. ''
This book is about Abu Bakr, May Allah be pleased with him, the first Caliph to rule the world of Islam after the Prophet Muhammad, May Allah bless him and grant him peace. More important than his achievements as a state leader was his close companionship with Prophet Muhammad, May Allah bless him and grant him peace, a relationship that earned him the name al-Siddiq (the Truthful one). He was also the ''second of the two'' mentioned in the Qur'an (at-Tawba 9: 40). How could such an honour be achieved ? This book talks about the Life of this blessed Companion.
Abu Bakr as-Siddiq, May Allah be pleased with him, was the only Companion who was privileged to ride alongside the Prophet Muhammad, May Allah bless him and grant him peace, in his great migration to Madina, a turning point in the history of Islam. This book analises his exemplary life, his relationship with the Beloved Prophet, May Allah bless him and grant him peace, and his unique role in the birth period of Islam.
