Aba Bakr (‘Abdullah bin Abu Quhafa At-Taimi) – Virtue of an Emigrant

Virtues are behaviours of high moral standard that we all strive to possess. There have been many in history with such characteristics and some have been blessed more than others.

Chapter 2: The Virtues of the Emigrants (i.e., Muhajirun) and Their Merits.

Among them is Abu Bakr (‘Abdullah bin Abu Quhafa At-Taimi) (raa).

The Statement of Allah (awj):

“(And there is also a share in this booty) for the poor emigrants who were expelled from their homes and their property, seeking bounties from Allah and to please Him. And helping Allah (i.e. helping His religion – Islamic Monotheism), and his Messenger (Muhammad (saws)) such are indeed the truthful (to what they say) .”

Surat Al-Ĥashr (The Exile) [59:8]

And also the Statement of Allah (awj)

“If you help him (Muhammad (saws)) not (it does not matter), for Allah did indeed help him when the disbelievers drove him out, the second of two, when they (Muhammad (saws) and Abu Bakr) were in the cave, and he (saws) said to his companion (Abu Bakr): “Be not sad (or afraid), surely Allah is with us.” Then Allah sent down His Sakinah (calmness, tranquility, peace, etc.) upon him, and strengthened him with forces (angels) which you saw not, and made the word of those who disbelieved the lowermost, while it was the Word of Allah that became the uppermost, and Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.”

Surat At-Tawbah (The Repentance) [9:40]

‘Aishah , Aba Sa’id and Ibn ‘Abbas (raa) said, “Abu Bakr was with the Prophet in the cave (of the mountain called Ath-Thur at Makkah)
