Do’a of Sayyidina Abu Bakr as-Siddiq r.a.
On this slide, I expanded the direct connection of Tareem dating back to the time of the first Caliph. Much so, one of the nicknames of #Tareem, is Madinah as-Siddiq (City of al-Siddiq).
Relation and rank.
If you want to see the CEO of a company, or a Prime Minister, you can make that request directly. And/or you can approach the people who work for them. This may increase your chance in getting to see him.
Secondly, if you happen to be an influential/powerful/rich/reputable person, it will increase your chance in getting that meeting. In short, your efforts prior, determine your standing – which influences certain things.
The superiority of Sayydina Abu Bakr is well known and illustrated. He was among the first to embrace Islam. He was the one Companion who accompanied the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in migrating to Medina.
After the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) passed away, people across Muslim land committed apostasy. Some leaving Islam completely, some refusing to pay zakat (alms). This happened in Bahrain, Yemen, Hadhramout, and other places.
Sayyidina Abu Bakr, send troops to fight them and set this matter for clarity. One army which included the soldiers who fought alongside the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in great battle of Badr, was sent to Hadhramout.
When they arrived Tareem, it was the only place in Hadhramout where no one had left or rebelled against Islam in any way. The people were firm in their faith and allegiance to Islam as well as the leadership.
When Sayyidina Abu Bakr received news of this. He made a do’a (supplication), that Tareem will (1) never experience a draught, (2) scholars will come from this land as many as the shoots from the grounds and (3) that Tareem will exist until the Day of Resurrection.
It is clear that if someone of his relation to God, and rank make such a supplication – the chances of it becoming true is obvious as we have see the proof of Tareem from then till now.
*The graveyard of the army (that included People of Badr) that was sent by him, is marked in a separate section. About four generations ago, a flood shifted the soil, exposing some graves. Witnesses saw bodies in perfect form.
