Hadhrat Abu Bakr (Radhiallahu Anhu) Giving milk to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)

Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (Radhiallahu Anhu) relates regarding the journey of Hijrah with Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), “We travelled hastily the entire day and night until the afternoon heat became intense. I then looked ahead to see whether I could find any shade so that we could take shelter through it. I then spotted a cave which we could take refuge in and seek shelter from the heat. I then said: “O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), remain outside the cave and allow me to enter so that if there is any harmful creature in the cave, it will harm me and not you.” After entering the cave I began cleaning it and spread out a cloth upon which Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) could lie down. I then requested him to enter and take a rest and he acceded to my request. Once Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) laid down to rest, I went to see whether I could spot anyone who was searching for us. I then spotted a shepherd nearby and asked him who was his owner. He named a man from the Quraysh whom I knew.  (As it was a prevalent custom at that time that people would allow travellers and wayfarers to benefit from the milk from their flock, Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (Radhiallahu Anhu) requested for some milk and the following dialogue ensued):

Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (Radhiallahu Anhu): “Do any of the goats have milk?”

The shepherd: “Yes.”

Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (Radhiallahu Anhu): “Will you milk some for me?”

He agreed, and milked one of the goats for me and poured it into my container. I added some water to the milk to cool the hot milk. I then took the milk to present it to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). As I approached Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), I found him awake. I said, “Partake of this, O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).” The sight of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) relishing the milk brought extreme joy and happiness to my heart.”
