Aboo Bakr’s Strict Adherence In Following The Sunnah


Abû Bakr Al-Siddîq – Allâh be pleased with him – said:

“I will not leave anything Allâh’s Messenger (saw) did, except that I will also do it; for I fear that if I were to leave any of his commands and ways I would deviate.”

[Al-Bukhârî, Al-Sahîh 2:386 hadîth no. 3093; Ibn Battah, Al-Ibânah article 77, and others]

After recording this narration, Ibn Battah states:

“This, my brothers, is the greatest Siddîq (true believer i.e. Abû Bakr), fearing that he would fall into deviation if he were to leave any of the commandments of his Prophet – Allâh’s peace and blessings be upon him.

What then is to happen in a time in which people deride their Prophet and his commandments, and compete with each other and show off in contradicting him and mock his Sunnah?

We ask Allâh to protect us from slipping and to save us from evil deeds.”
