Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Thirteen

Love for the Ahl-e-Bayt

On one occasion, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) mentioned, “Maintaining ties with the family of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is more beloved to me than maintaining ties with my own family.” (Saheeh Bukhaari #3712)

From this narration, it is clear that Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) loved the Ahl-e-Bayt more than he loved his own family. This was on account of the Ahl-e-Bayt being the blessed family of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Similarly, Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had loved Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) so much that on the demise of Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), it was the wife of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat Asmaa bint Umais (radhiyallahu ‘anha), who attended to her ghusl and kafan. (Usdul Ghaabah 5/369)
