Closing remarks

 

This is the end of the first volume which dealt mainly with the life of Abu Bakr radiya Llahu ‘anhu and his relationship with the Ahlul Bayt. I urge the readers to scrupulously analyse all five parts of this volume and reflect deeply. I am without doubt certain that your hearts will attest that there had been no acrimony, transgression, befoeing, disunity, oppression or defamation amongst these illustrious and righteous companions of Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. They were expressly the personification and embodiment of Ruhama’ Baynahum; they loved, revered, appreciated and sympathised with one another. All the different themes and chapters of this book confirm the veracity of this.

I invoke Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala from the bottom of my heart that he brings about unity and affinity in the ummah just as he had granted the Sahabah, the noble companions of Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam love and unanimity.

In conclusion, I quote an advice of Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam which he had dispensed to Abu Dhar radiya Llahu ‘anhu in the presence of ‘Ali radiya Llahu ‘anhu:

 

ياأباذر إياك والهجران لأخيك المؤمن فإن العمل لا يتقبل مع الهجران.

O Abu Dhar! Refrain from forsaking your brother for a person’s deeds are not accepted so long as he forsakes his brother.[1]

 

Therefore it is our faith that, in light of this advice and others of its nature, that the Sahabah radiya Llahu ‘anhum believed in one creed and practiced the same religion; they were not opposed to one another. May Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala inspire us to follow in their path, grant us a pleasant ending and unite us with them in the hereafter.

 

وآخر دعوانا أن الحمد لله رب العالمين وصلي الله تعالي علي خير خلقه رحمة للعالمين وعلي أصحابه وأهل بيته وعترته اجمعين وأتباعه بإحسان إلي يوم الدين برحمتك يا أرحم الراحمين .

 

Desirous of your supplications: Muhammad Nafi’.
