Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Nineteen

Spending His Wealth in the Path of Allah Ta‘ala

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “No person’s wealth benefited me as much as the wealth of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).” Hearing this, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) began to weep and said, “My wealth and I belong to you, O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)!” (Sunan Ibnu Maajah #94)

In the narration of Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) in Musnad Ahmed, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned, “No wealth benefited me as much as the wealth of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).” Hearing this, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) began to weep, and then exclaimed thrice, “In reality, Allah Ta‘ala blessed me with everything through you!” (Musnad Ahmed #8790)
