Companions

Abu Bakr Siddique

By Ahmad Ali. From the day he embraced Islam until the day he died, Abu Bakr As-Siddique (Radhi Allahu Anhu - May Allah be Pleased with Him) was the ideal Muslim, surpassing all other Companions in every sphere of life. During the Prophet's lifetime, Abu Bakr was an exemplary soldier on the battlefield; upon the Prophet's death, Abu Bakr (R) remained steadfast and, through the help of Allah, held this nation together. When others suggested keeping Usaamah's army back, Abu Bakr insisted - and correctly so - that the army should continue the mission which the Prophet (S) had in mind. When people refused to pay Zakaat, and when the apostates threatened the stability of the Muslim nation, Abu Bakr was the one who remained firm and took decisive action against them. These are just some of the examples of Abu Bakr's many wonderful achievements throughout his life.

The Life of Abu Bakr As-Siddiq

This series of lectures covers the different aspects of the life of Abu Bakr (R.A.), including his life before Islam, during the life of the Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.), and finally during his Khalifah.

The Conqueror of the World

A towering figure, they say that when he used to be in the market place amongst the people, it would seem as though he is on horseback! A staunch character, firm in upholding the law of Islam; a person who walks around at night seeking to aid his people. When he would walk on one side of the street the Shaytan would avoid him and go on the opposite side! A Caliph that spent his night and day caring and looking after his Ummah, first to set up policing in the Muslim Ummah. Yet a Caliph that would weep until his beard would be soaked. An inspirational talk on the life and character of Umar ibn Al-Khattab.

The Story of Ka'ab Ibn Maalik

The Muslims had conquered Makka, and news of this conquest had spread to Ceaser, of Rome who decided to extinguish the Prophet (pbuh) and his followers, thus extinguishing his threat. As the Prophet readied for war, excuses were made by the hypocrites to be excused, thus the Prophet excused them. This is the story of Ka’ab Ibn Malik others who were distracted from war by their material possessions, but who were sincere and did not make excuses like the hypocrites when the prophet returned. This tells of the trial, Allah placed them through, and then the reward they were granted for their patience, mentioning their deed as revelation in the Qur’an.

The Quest for Truth

This is the story of the famed companion of the Prophet (peace be upon him), Salman the Persian and his incredible journey to Islam. Having begun life as the boy of a Zoroastrian priest, Salman soon found a simple errand for his father had become the beginning of an epic struggle to discover the truth about life and purpose. Salman was a pagan fire worshiper, who became the apprentice of two Christian priests, one after the other, who then became the slave of a Jew, finally finding liberation in the light of Islam. All of which happened in the span of many years. His story is a tale of patience, persistence and forbearance for the truth. Anwar al-Awlaki
