Name: Abdullah ibn Uthmaan (Abu Quhaafa) [1]

Famously known as: Abu Bakr

Titles: AlAteeq ; As-Siddeeq

Mother’s name: Salmah (Ummul Khair) bint Sakhr

How did he receive the title Al-Ateeq:

Hadhrat Aaisha (Radhiallahu Anha) relates that on one occasion Hadhrat Abu Bakr (Radhiallahu Anhu) came to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said to him: انت عتيق من النار (You are Ateeq [the one who has gained emancipation and freedom] from the fire of Jahannum). Thereafter, he became renowned with the title Al-Ateeq.

How did he receive the title As-Siddeeq:

Hadhrat Aaisha (Radhiallahu Anha) reports that on the occasion of Me’raj, when Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was taken by night from Musjid Haraam to Musjid Aqsa (and thereafter to the seven heavens), upon his return he informed the people of Makkah regarding the miraculous journey during the night. The people of Makkah doubted the words of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), and thus began ridiculing him. Some people even reneged from Islam, who previously had believed in Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Nevertheless, when Hadhrat Abu Bakr (Radhiallahu Anhu) was informed by certain people (trying to provoke Hadhrat Abu Bakr (Radhiallahu Anhu)) regarding what had transpired, he responded by saying: “Indeed I fully testify to what Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has said. When I have believed him in matters which are uncomprehendible and unfathomable to the human mind (i.e. matters relating to the Aakhirat), I believe him night and day regarding the revelation he receives from the unseen, Why should I then doubt him in this matter?” It was after this incident that he received the title As-Siddeeq. [2]

حَدَّثَنَا حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ مَنْصُورٍ الْقَاضِي ، ثنا أَبُو بَكْرٍ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ رَجَاءٍ ، ثنا إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ الْمُنْذِرِ الْحِزَامِيُّ ، ثنا يَحْيَى بْنُ سُلَيْمٍ ، عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا ، قَالَ : ” وَلِينَا أَبُو بَكْرٍ فَكَانَ خَيْرَ خَلِيفَةِ اللَّهِ ، وَأَرْحَمَهُ بِنَا ، وَأَحْنَاهُ عَلَيْنَا ” . هَذَا حَدِيثٌ صَحِيحٌ الإِسْنَادِ وَلَمْ يُخَرِّجَاهُ


Imam Baqir narrates from Abdullah ibn Jafar that he said : Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه) became our ruler, and he was the best caliph of Allah, and he was the most merciful and kind upon us.
Mustadrak Hakim Vol. 3, p. 79

Abu Bakr the pinnacle of truthfulness..

Leave a comment

This book is about Abu Bakr, the first Caliph to rule the world of Islam after the Prophet Muhammad. More important than his achievements as a state leader was his close companionship with Prophet Muhammad, a relationship that earned him the name al Siddiq. He was the only Companion who was privileged to ride alongside the Prophet Muhammad in his great migration to Madina, a turning point in the history of Islam. This book analyzes his exemplary life, his relationship with the Prophet, and his unique role in the birth period of Islam.
