An Inspiration from Our History

Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq’s (Radhi Allahu Anhu) Speech after being appointed as Khalifah ar-Rasulullah

Abu Bakr (Radhi Allahu Anhu) began by praising and glorifying Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. He then said:

“To proceed: O people, I have indeed being appointed over you, though I am not the best among you. If I do well, then help me; and if I act wrongly then correct me. Truthfulness is synonymous with fulfilling the trust, and lying is tantamount to treachery. The weak among you is deemed strong by me, until I return to them that which is rightfully theirs Insha Allah. And the strong among you is deemed weak by me, until I take from them what is rightly (someone else’s) Insha Allah.

No group of people abandons Jihad in the path of Allah except that Allah makes them suffer humiliation. And wickedness does not become widespread among a people except that Allah inflicts them with widespread calamity.

Obey me so long as I obey Allah and His Messenger. And if I disobey Allah and His Messenger, then I have no right to your obedience. Stand up now to pray, may Allah have mercy on you.”

Excerpts: The Biography of Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq by Dr Ali Muhammad Muhammad As-Sallaabee – Translated by Faisal Shafeeq

Subhanallah there are many lessons in this short speech.

May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala guide us and keep us on the path followed by the Sahabah (Radhi Allahu Anhum) Ameen!
