    Abu Bakr As-Siddiq and the Jewish Rabbi

    Abū Bakr Aṣ-Ṣiddīq once entered a Jewish place of study and found a group of Jews gathered around one of their men named Finḥāṣ, who was one of their scholars and their Rabbis. Abū Bakr said to Finḥāṣ: "Woe to you O Finḥāṣ, fear Allah and embrace Islam, for by Allah you know that Muḥammad is the Messenger of Allah who has brought the truth to you from Allah. He is mentioned in your Torah."

    Finḥāṣ responded: “What do we need from a poor God? Verily He is poor unto us. We do not ask Him to loan us anything yet He asks from us. Verily we are rich compared to Him, and He is not rich unto us. If He were rich compared to us then He would not ask us to lend Him our wealth."

    Abū Bakr became angry and punched the face of Finḥāṣ with a mighty blow. He then said to him: "By Him in whose Hand is my soul, if it were not for the treaty between us, O enemy of Allah, I would have killed you."

    Finḥāṣ went to the Messenger of Allah and said: "O Muḥammad! Look at what your companion has done to me."

    The Messenger of Allah ﷺ asked Abū Bakr: "What has driven you to do what you did?"

    He said: "O Messenger of Allah ﷺ, this enemy of Allah has said something very serious. He claimed that Allah is poor and they are rich. When he said that I became angry for the sake of Allah and hit his face."

    Finḥāṣ denied it and said "I did not say that." And so Allah revealed the verse responding to the lie of Finḥāṣ and confirming the words of Abū Bakr:

    لَّقَدْ سَمِعَ اللَّهُ قَوْلَ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ فَقِيرٌ وَنَحْنُ أَغْنِيَاءُ ۘ سَنَكْتُبُ مَا قَالُوا وَقَتْلَهُمُ الْأَنبِيَاءَ بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ وَنَقُولُ ذُوقُوا عَذَابَ الْحَرِيقِ

    Indeed, Allah has heard the statement of those (Jews) who said: "Verily, Allah is poor and we are rich!" We shall record what they have said as well as their unjust killing of the Prophets, and We shall say: "Taste the punishment of the Burning Fire." [3:181]

    (Tafsīr Ibn Kathīr 434)

    Some points to ponder upon - Abū Bakr was a strong and mighty man, whoever wishes to portray him as being weak has lied against him. Verily he was always ready to stand up against the enemies of Allah and to fight them. Indeed he was a noble man who did not tolerate disbelief and strove hard to establish the Religion of Allah.

    - The Messenger of Allah ﷺ did not believe the words of Finḥāṣ as he did not rebuke Abū Bakr despite Finḥāṣ denying having said those words. Rather he waited for divine revelation to prove that Abū Bakr was the honest one of the two.

    - The Messenger of Allah ﷺ did not rebuke Abū Bakr for punching the enemy of Allah as what Finḥāṣ had said was utter disbelief and cannot be tolerated by a believer. This shows that whilst we must call the people to Islam, it does not mean that we let them abuse us or insult our Religion.

    The apostates were mocking Abu Bakr's name calling him Abu Faseel or something which means father of the weak camel, and Adi ibn Hatim warned them they'd soon find out that he is the Father of the mighty stallion ( whatever that is in Arabic ) and of course he taught them a very painful lesson, which goes to show, he may have been soft hearted, but that doesn't mean 1 is weak or someone that is a pushover

      Abu Bakr as Siddiq was a very slim and gentle person generally but make no mistake He was a warrior

      Umar Farooq was the strong and to the point person. However even Umar said that during the zakat issue after the death of the Prophet saw Abu Bakr grabbed and shook him so hard his bones shook. Remember this was Umar who was a wrestler and a big man

        He grabbed Umar Radhi-yallaahu 'anhu by the beard if i recall correctly....and he was basically the only sahabi that could ever do such a thing or rebuke him in the manner he did......

          Re: Abu Bakr As-Siddiq and the Jewish Rabbi

          And what relevance does that have exactly to anything or his virtues? Its not like they kept a kill count of the number they killed and who they were *rolleyes*

          Though if your implying the same thing as that shaytan Yasir Al Habib May Allah curse him for lying against the sahaba - you are implying Abu Bakr [May Allah be pleased with him ] was a coward who never actually killed anyone in battle.

            I'm not sure what you are referring to regarding yasir habib. I don't ever listen to him so don't know exactly what he says nor do I care. All I am saying is that there is no evidence to suggest he was "mighty", "warrior" etc. There is nothing of note that he ever did in any battle to suggest he was mighty etc, so you cannot just take one incident where he punched a guy in the nose as evidence for being mighty.

              Oh and him being the bodyguard of the Prophet :saw: on Badr, and with him on Uhud means nothing does it? Him being beaten to within an Inch of his life in Mecca defending the Prophet :saw: from being attacked isn't mighty? He lead many expeditions, he was in all the armies and battles the Prophet :saw; participated in - and we all know how he taught the apostates that turned after the death of the Prophet :saw: a very painful lesson now don't we?

                Re: Abu Bakr As-Siddiq and the Jewish Rabbi

                Really? Can you provide me with some references to the fact that he was a bodyguard etc at those battles? Would be interesting to read.
                Also, references for which expeditions he led and him being beaten would be nice. All these things I've never heard of before that's why I'm asking.

                Well I know about the ridda wars. In my opinion, it doesn't paint a good picture of him as there were some interesting things that took place during that time but I don't want to get into that.
