SubhanAllah, have you heard the story of the companion, Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq Radi Allahu anh…
He was the best friend of the best of creation, Rasoolullah Muhammad Sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Abu Bakr’s friendship with the final messenger of Allah, was a true friendship based on love… on trust… on loyalty… on truthfulness.
What an amazing companion radi Allahu anh! There are accounts of his love for the messenger of Allah, narrations of how he stuck with the messenger peace be upon him, in his most testing times, when he was opposed by his people, when he was threatened by the idolators, when he was turned out from his birthtown, Abu Bakr stuck with him through thick and thin. He enthusiastically accompanied him on the migration to Madinah. He preferred the messenger Muhammad peace be upon him to himself, radi Allahu anh. Because he believed that Muhammad peace be upon truly was the messenger of Allah.
He loved the messenger dearly, for the sake of Allah.
And that’s what you call a true friendship.
Hear more about this truthful companion Radi Allahu anh!

May Allah grant us perfect love for Him alone, and love for His messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the way the companions like amazing Abu bakr Radi Allahu anh loved him.

With Love for the sake of Allah!
In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful
