ďMy companions are like stars to guide to the right path. If they are followed
you are sure to reach the right destination.Ē This is a saying of the Prophet of
Islam (pbuh). Those companions shined like bright stars. Some of them sparkled
like the sun in the firmament of Islam.
Hazrat Abu Bakrís name is counted as one such radiant sun whose light will
continue to illumine believers hearts for ever. His enlighten ting career shall
serve as a stimulating source of inspiration till the Day of Resurrection.
The early history of the birth and childhood of Hazrat Abu Bakr (R.A) is not
very clearly known owing to general ignorance which prevailed in Arabia at the
inception of Islam. However, it is unanimously accepted and agreed upon that
Hazrat Abu Bakr was the light of the tribe of Banu Tamim which enjoyed
prominence in Arabia.
