It is mentioned that in the beginning of Islam, the Muslims used to keep their faith private and secret. However, when the number of Muslims reached thirty nine, at the insistent of Hadrat Sayyiduna Abu Bakr – may Allah be pleased with him, the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – announced to the Muslims that they could publicly display their faith.

 

One day, the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – took all the Muslims to the Haram Shareef and Hadrat Sayyiduna Abu Bakr – may Allah be pleased with him – began to deliver the khutbah. When the disbelievers saw this, they attacked the blessed companion and he was beaten so badly that his face could not be recognised. They continued to hit Hadrat Sayyiduna Abu Bakr – may Allah be pleased with him – until he fell unconscious. When members of his clan heard about this, they rushed towards the Haram Shareef and carried his body to his house. He remained unconscious the entire day. When Hadrat Sayyiduna Abu Bakr – may Allah be pleased with him – regained a little conscious, the first thing he asked was about the state and condition of the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him-.

 

He also made it clear that he will not eat or drink anything until he does not meet the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him. When it was dark, his blessed mother took him to Daar Arqam and when he saw the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, they both embraced each other warmly. Hadrat Sayyiduna Abu Bakr – may Allah be pleased with him – was weeping and also requested the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – to convey the message of Islam to his mother. The blessed lady then immediately accepted Islam. The same time, Hadrat Sayyiduna Ameer Hamza – may Allah be pleased with him – accepted Islam and three days later, Hadrat Sayyiduna ‘Umar – may Allah be pleased with him – also accepted Islam. (Al Bidaayah; Hayaat As Sahaabah)
