The Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – is certainly alive.

 

Hadrat Sayyiduna Ali – may Allah be pleased with him – narrates that, “When the time came for Hadrat Sayyiduna Abu Bakr – may Allah be pleased with him – to pass away, he then mentioned to me, “O Ali, when I pass away, you must give me ghusal with the same blessed hands with which you gave ghusal to the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him –. You must then place fragrance on me and take me to the same room in which the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – is buried. You should then seek permission for me to be buried there as well. If you see the door opening, then you should bury me there. Otherwise, you must bury me in the graveyard of the Muslims which is the Jannatul Baqi until the Allah Almighty calls people to account. (In other words, until the appearance of the day of Judgement).

 

Hadrat Sayyiduna Ali – may Allah be pleased with him – continues, “I then performed the ghusal and covered him with the kafan and I was the first person to stand at the door of the beloved Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – and seek permission. I asked in the following way, ‘O Prophet of Allah! This is Abu Bakr Siddique who seeks permission to be buried’ Hadrat Sayyiduna Ali – may Allah be pleased with him – then narrates further, ‘I then saw the door open on its own and also heard the words, ‘Allow the Habeeb to be with the Habeeb because the Habeeb is ardently anxious to meet the Habeeb.’

*Hadrat Sayyiduna Jabir bin Abdullah Ansari – may Allah be pleased with him – narrates, “We took the blessed body of Hadrat Sayyiduna Abu Bakr – may Allah be pleased with him – and then knocked on the door seeking permission and also (mentioned who was present), and suddenly the door opened on its own. We had no idea who had opened the door when there was no one inside the room. However, the words of the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – were clearly heard where he mentioned that we should enter and also bury (the eminent Sahabi).” (Nafhaatul Uns by Imam Jaami).

 

*Hadrat Sayyidah Ayesha – may Allah be pleased with her – narrates, “When Hadrat Sayyiduna Abu Bakr – may Allah be pleased with him – passed away, there were certain companions who mentioned that he should be buried among the martyrs, (in other words in the blessed graveyard of Jannatul Baqi). I had also mentioned that he should be buried in the same room as the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him –. In other words, there was confusion in this regard. However, in my dream, I heard a voice saying to me, ‘Allow the friend to join with the friend. When I awoke, I realised that everyone present had also heard this voice. Even the people in the masjid heard these words.’” (Shawaahidun Nubuwah by Imam Jami. Hadraatul Qudus by Imam Badrudeen Sirhindi).

 

*It is recorded that when the time came for the passing of Hadrat Sayyiduna Abu Bakr – may Allah be pleased with him – then he called the blessed Ashaab and informed them, ‘When I pass away and you have completed my ghusal and other actions, then you must present me in front of the door of that room in which the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – is resting.

 

You must then stop and say the words, “As salaamo alaika Ya Rasoolallah. This is Abu Bakr Siddique who seeks permission to enter.” If you receive permission and the door which is closed is opened, then you should take me inside and bury me there. If you do not receive permission then you should take me to Jannatul Baqi and bury me there.” The blessed Ashaab did exactly this. When they presented themselves in front of the door, the lock fell to the ground on its own and the door opened on its own and from the blessed room a voice was heard which declared, “Allow the Habeeb to enter with the Habeeb because the Habeeb is ardently anxious to meet the Habeeb.” (Shawaahidun Nubuwah by Imam Jaami).

 

* Among the miracles of Hadrat Sayyiduna Abu Bakr – may Allah be pleased with him – is that when his Janaza was carried and placed in front of the door (of the room in which the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – lies buried), and it was mentioned, “As salaamo alaika Ya Rasoolullah. This is Abu Bakr who seeks permission (to enter and be buried), the closed door opened on its own and from the blessed grave of the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – a voice was heard declaring, “Allow the Habeeb to join the Habeeb”. (Tafseer Kabeer by Imam Razi. Tafseer Nishapuri by Imam Ahmed bin Mohammed Nishapuri).
