Siddiq (r.a) - By Allama Iqbal | with English translation

[postlink][/postlink] [starttext]A beautiful poem written by Allama Muhammad Iqbal in the praise of Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq (r.a).

Umar ibn Al-Khattab (r.a) said: The Prophet (pbuh) commanded us to give sadaqa. It happened to coincide with some wealth I had just acquired and I said to myself: If I will ever surpass Abu Bakr (r.a), this is the day I will surpass him. And so I came to the Prophet (pbuh) with half of my wealth and he (pbuh) said to me: "What have you left for your family?" I said: The same amount. Then Abu Bakr (r.a) came with all of his wealth. The Prophet (pbuh) said to him: "What have you left for your family?" He said: I have left them Allah and His Messenger." I said: I will never surpass you in anything."
- Abu Daud[endtext]
