Who is he?

Guess who this man is?

When Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. told his people of his miraculous journey traveling from Makkah to Jurusalem and then was raised up to the heaven in just one night, the mushrikeens were actually very happy. They were happy for finally they have the proof that Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, is really a mad man.

In just one night to Jurusalem? Whereas even professional caravan operators (those days) would take two weeks one way. And Muhammad saw was talking about a fantasy animal which also took him up to the sky?

At last the Mushrikeens could tell everyone how mad Muhammad (s.a.w) is especially to the Muslims.

And when they told this man, expecting him to flinch and agree with them, the man said, "If indeed Muhammad (s.a.w.) did say it, then it is the truth!"

The mushrikeens were disheartened for nothing can dent the strong believe of this man (and also the believers). For his unwavering belief and his faith, Prophet Muhammad saw gave him a nickname which even after more than 1400 years are known best for.

Who is he?

The Prophet Muhammad himself once said,

"If I were to take a Khalil , I would have taken ___________, but he is my brother and my companion (in Islam)" (Hadith compiled by Bukhari, narrated by Ibn Abbas)

Who is he?

After the death of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w, this man who is the closest friend to the Prophet s.a.w. was the one who calmed everyone down by his famous saying,

"Whoever worships Muhammad saw, let him know that he is dead, but whoever worships Allah, let him know that Allah is alive forever."

Who is he?

And just for the sake of more clues (and putting pictures is always good),


Who is he?

Saidina Abu Bakr R.A

I have the full cd set by Sheikh Anwar Al Awlaki but unfortunately I haven't had the time to listen to it all. InsyaAllah I will try to listen to them all. Saidina Abu Bakr's love for the Prophet SAW should be an inspiration to all esp at this time. I heard a an interview on tv today that Islam is going thru it's dark ages now. Subhanallah May Allah have Mercy on us.

Masya Allah. You are correct! :D

I love listenting to Sheikh Anwar Al Awlaki. The way he said made us realise how much love the sahabahs had for our prophet and how much we must yearn to achieve the same or at leats some of them.

The one that touched me most wwa when Abu Bakr r.a. asked whether he can be Rasulullah s.a.w companion for the hijrah and just how much he cried when Rasullullah said that he may. Despite knowing the risk of death is near just being Rasulullah s.a.w companion, he yearned to still be the one to be by the Prophet's side.

May Allah instill love on us to our prophets and the righteous sahabahs. May we emulate their virtues for the sake of Allah.

May Allah always guide our tongue or our writings so it will become a tool of daawah.
