Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Fourteen

Testimony of Entry into Jannah

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) possessed qualities which were so sublime that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned that the one who possessed such qualities would enter Jannah.

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that on one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) enquired from the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), “Who amongst you is fasting today?” Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “I am fasting today.”

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then enquired, “Who amongst you has visited a sick person today?” Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “I have visited a sick person today.”

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) further enquired, “Which of you has participated in a Janaazah today?” Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “I have participated in a Janaazah today.”

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then asked, “Which of you has fed a poor person today?” Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “I have fed a poor person today.”

Thereafter, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who possesses all these qualities will definitely enter Jannah.”

(Saheeh Muslim #1028)
