Masjid Abu Bakr Siddeeq [Radiyal Laahu Anhu]


Masjid Abu Bakr Siddeeq [Radiyal Laahu Anhu] is located at the corner of Masjid e Nabawi Shareef in Madinah –Arabia. It is located at the west southern side of the Honorable Prophet’s Mosque, and it is about (1000) meters from its current fence.

This was Home of Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq [Radiyal Laahu Anhu] which was later converted to a Masjid by Authorities.

It is narrated that the Prophet Muhammad [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] prayed Eid prayer at this site, and Abu Bakr Siddeeq [Radiyal Laahu Anhu] after Him during His Caliphate, so it was attributed to Him.



It was built-up for the first time in the Princedom of Omar Bin Abdul Aziz in Al Madeenah (86-91 A.H./705-709 A.D.), and it was renovated by the Ottoman Sultaan Mehmood II in 1254 A.H./1838 A.D.



It is square shaped and the length of its side is nine meters. It was built by black basalt stones, and was painted white from inside with a dome above it whose height is (12) m. Within the walled area is a small rectangular courtyard. The minaret is an austere cylindrical shape also capped with a green metal cone..

Excerpt –continued

A lecture delivered by Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Shafee Okarvi [Rahmatul Laahi Alaieh]in South Africa in Durban, South Africa on Friday 21st Jumaad al-Awwal 1396 / 21st May 1976

The Holy Prophet Muhammad

[Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] said, O ‘Abu Bakr, You made place for me in the cave, I will make place for you in my Burial Chamber (Mazaar). In the cave I slept on your lap but in my Burial Chamber you will sleep in my proximity.’ Unto this day Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq [Radiyal Laahu Anhu] rests in the blessed Burial Chamber.

Remember how Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq [Radiyal Laahu Anhu]  who is buried in the Holy Prophet e’s Burial Chamber under the Green Dome, came to be there. Read the books of Islaam; the commentary of the Holy Qur'aan, Tafseer-e Kabeer
of Fakhr ud-Deen al-Raazi and "Al-Kasa'is al-Kubraa"
of Imaam Jalaal ud deen al-Suyuuti –[May both be blessed]

Refer to both of these books.

. عن علي بن أبي طالب قال لما حضرت أبابکر الوفاة أقعدني عند رأسه و قال لي يا علي إذا أنا مت فغسلني بالکف الذي غسلت به رسول اﷲ و حنطوني و اذهبوا بي إلي البيت الذي فيه رسول اﷲ فاستأذنوا فإن رأيتم الباب قد يفتح فادخلوا بي وإلا فردوني إلي مقابر المسلمين حتي يحکم اﷲ بين عباده قال فغسل و کفن و کنت أول من يأذن إلي الباب فقلت يا رسول اﷲ هذا أبوبکر مستأذن فرأيت الباب قد تفتح و سمعت قائلا يقول ادخلوا الحبيب إلي حبيبه فإن الحبيب إلي الحبيب مشتاق.

’’حضرت علی المرتضی رضی اللہ عنہ سے روایت ہے کہ جب حضرت ابوبکر صدیق رضی اللہ عنہ کی وفات کا وقت قریب آیا تو آپ نے مجھے اپنے سرہانے بٹھایا اور فرمایا اے علی! جب میں فوت ہو جاؤں تو مجھے اس ہاتھ سے غسل دینا جس سے تم نے رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم کو غسل دیا تھا اور مجھے خوشبو لگانا اور مجھے حضور صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم کے روضۂ اقدس کے پاس لیجانا، اگر تم دیکھو کہ دروازہ کھول دیا گیا ہے تو مجھے وہاں دفن کر دینا ورنہ واپس لاکر عامۃ المسلمین کے قبرستان میں دفن کر دینا تاوقتیکہ اللہ تعالیٰ اپنے بندوں کے درمیان فیصلہ فرما دے۔ حضرت علی رضی اللہ عنہ فرماتے ہیں کہ آپ رضی اللہ عنہ کو غسل اور کفن دیا گیا اور میں نے سب سے پہلے روضہ رسول صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم کے دروازے پر پہنچ کر اجازت طلب کی میں نے عرض کیا یا رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ! ابوبکر آپ سے داخلہ کی اجازت مانگ رہے ہیں پھر میں نے دیکھا کہ روضہ اقدس کا دروازہ کھول دیا گیا اور آواز آئی : حبیب کو اس کے حبیب کے ہاں داخل کر دو بے شک حبیب ملاقاتِ حبیب کے لئے مشتاق ہے۔‘‘

Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq had requested that when he leaves this world, for the realm of Divine Beauty, he should be shrouded, the Funeral Prayer prayed and then taken to the Sacred Burial Chamber of the Holy Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam].
He said salutations [Salaam] should be offered to the Holy Prophet then it should be proclaimed, ‘O Rasooolul Laah [Sallaal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam]! Your companion of the cave, Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq is present’. He said if the door to the Holy Prophet’s Burial Chamber automatically opens then he should be buried inside or he should be buried at Jannat al-Baqee, the Sacred Cemetery. When his blessed funeral bier was taken to the Holy Prophet e’s Burial Chamber and the Companions had presented their greeting, they said, ‘O Rasoolul Laah! Hazrat Abu Bakr is at your door’. Read the books of Hadees, where it is reported that the door of the Holy Prophet’s Burial Chamber opened on its own and a voice was heard from the blessed grave of the Holy Prophet Muhammad e  saying,
Bring my beloved to his beloved; bring my friend to his friend
For the Beloved is longing for his beloved
So Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq [Radiyal Laahu Anhu] was buried within the Sacred Burial Chamber.
Ponder, leaving your doubts and sectarian preconception aside upon Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq’s request to be taken to the Holy Prophet e’s Burial Chamber, to greet, to proclaim that Abu Bakr is present and to say if the door opens on its own then I must be buried inside. Should not the Companions have stated as to who will open the door for the Holy Prophet[Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam]  is buried and dead. The fact that Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique [Radiyal Laahu Anhu] requested this and the Companions carried out his request are proof that the Companions believed the Holy Prophet to be alive (Hayaatun Nabee) and functioning. His tasarruf is prevalent unto this day. The door opened and the voice spoke from the grave.
When Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique [Radiyal Laahu Anhu] was placed in his grave, Hazrat Ali[Radiyal Laahu Anhu] was at his head side and he witnessed something that made him cry. The Companions enquired as to why he cried and he said. “I saw the Holy Prophet   arise from his grave, look at Abu Bakr [Radiyal Laahu Anhu] and supplicate, ‘O Allaah [Kareem]! For the sake of the white beard of Abu Bakr forgive all the white bearded members of my community.’
So I cried witnessing the love of the Holy Prophet  [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam]for his community and seeing the status of Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq [Radiyal Laahu Anhu]. ”Look at the status of Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq [Radiyal Laahu Anhu], for the Holy Prophet prays to Allaah [Ta’aalaa] using him as a means.
It is that very Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq [Radiyal Laahu Anhu]  who is a lover of the Holy Prophet
Ask the scholars (Ulamaah), Imaam Mullah Alee Qaari, [Radiyal Laah Anhu] the respected Hanaafi Imaam, has cited the following Hadees in his book, Maujzaat e Kaabeer;
Imaam Allaamah Ismaaeel Haqqi Bursevi (1653-1724 or 5) has cited it in his Arabic Tafseer , ‘Ruh al-Bayaan’  .

22nd Jamaadi ul Ukhraa : Hazrat Saiyyidinaa Abu Bakr Siddeeq [Radiyal Laahu 'Anhu]

Hazrat Saiyyidinaa Abu Bakr Siddeeq [Radiyal Laahu 'Anhu] was one of the first few people to accept Islaam at the invitation of the Holy Prophet Muhammad [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] He was a very kind-hearted, generous and noble person. His character was such that the people of the town of Makah all respected him and appreciated his good nature. It was due to this good nature that led  Hazrat Abu Bakr [Radiyal Laahu Anhu]—by the mercy and blessing of  Almighty Allaah, —to become one of the first believers of the message of our beloved Prophet Muhammad [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] and to spend the rest of his life in service to Islaam.


Hazrat Saiyyidinaa Abu Bakr Siddeeq [Radiyal Laahu 'Anhu helped Islaam in its early days by preaching the message to his friends and associates, as a result, many people embraced Islaam on his invitation. He also helped the progression of Islaam by purchasing and freeing many Muslim slaves that were tortured by their Non-Muslim masters for believing in Islaam. He served his religion by accompanying the Holy Prophet Muhammad [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] He on the dangerous journey of hijrah (migration) to Madeenah.....

Hazrat Saiyyidinaa Abu Bakr Siddeeq [Radiyal Laahu 'Anhu]


When they were in the cave, when he was saying to his companion "Do not grieve; indeed [Almighty] Allaah is with us"; then Allaah [Ta'aalaa] caused His calm to descend upon him and helped him with armies you did not see, and disgraced the word of the disbelievers; and  [Almighty]Allaah’s Word is supreme; and Allaah is the Almighty, the Wise-Soorah Taubaah-Verse-40

إِلَّا تَنْصُرُوهُ فَقَدْ نَصَرَهُ اللَّهُ إِذْ أَخْرَجَهُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا ثَانِيَ اثْنَيْنِ إِذْ هُمَا فِي الْغَارِ إِذْ يَقُولُ لِصَاحِبِهِ لَا تَحْزَنْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ مَعَنَا ۖ فَأَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ سَكِينَتَهُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَيَّدَهُ بِجُنُودٍ لَمْ تَرَوْهَا وَجَعَلَ كَلِمَةَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا السُّفْلَىٰ ۗ وَكَلِمَةُ اللَّهِ هِيَ الْعُلْيَا ۗ وَاللَّهُ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ

Hazrat Saiyyidinaa Abu Bakr Siddeeq [Radiyal Laahu 'Anhu]

  "The most superior and the best of all men after Prophets – blessings and peace upon them – is Hazrat Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq. And then, Hazrat Umar ibn al-Khattab al-Farooq. And then Hazrat Usmaan. And then Hazrat Alee. May Allaah be well pleased with them all; they were worshippers and steadfast on Truth and sided with Truth. We love all of them." [Fiqh Al-Akbar]
