On this day (22th Jumadal Ukhra) Afzalun Naas, Ba’adal Ambia, Siddiq-e-Akbar Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq Alaihis Salam received His Bisal Shareef (Expiry). The unprecedented wisdom and specialties of Afzalun Naas, Ba’adal Ambia, Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq Alaihis Salam cannot be overemphasized. Allah Pak made praises about Him in more than one places in the Qur’an Shareef. Numerous references of Hadis Shareef are there in paying tributes to Him. One Who is just after the Nabi and Rwasool Alaihimus Salaam, the holder of the highest dignity and status is Siddiq-i-Akbar Alaihis Salam and this decoration is a unique specialty for Him. It is not possible to describe His decorum in small spaces. There is no language that His biography has not been published in that. He is that Individual Who accepted Islam before anybody else and is the jami-ul-Qur’an, Pioneer Collector of Qur’an Shareef and named it Mashaaf. It is Him, Who has been honoured as the first Khalifatu Rwasoolillah. A rare personality in the realm of Islam, Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq Alaihis Salam was accepted by all without any hesitation for His Imaamat and Khilafat after the Nubuwat.
Allah Pak Narrated in Kalamullah Shareef, the story of His being the Companion of Huzur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam during the journey in the cave of Sawr. In describing the significance of this journey, Hazrat Omar Faruk Alaihis Salam commented, “I wish my whole life’s a’amal were equal to those three nights (a’amal) of Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq Alaihis Salam, while He was the co-traveler with Huzur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam during Hizrah.”
Hazrat Abu Siddiq-e-Akbar Alaihis Salam did as Imaam (led prayers) for 17 waqt (times) before the Bisal Shareef of Huzur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam during His illness. Immediate after the Bisal Shareef (demise) of Huzur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam, all the Sahaba-i-Kiram RwadiAllahu Ta’ala Anhum jointly delivered upon Hazrat Abu Bakr Alaihis Salam the responsibility of Khilafat. He became the Khalifa for the entire Muslim world and ran the Khilafat for a total of two years three months and ten days with much of respect and capabilities. In this short span of ruling, He suppressed all revolts and conspiracies against Islam with success and brought back order and peace in the whole of the Muslim world.(Subhan Allah)

In this regard, Allah Declares, “Allah Is Happy with those who shall rightly follow Hazrat Sahaba-i-Kiram RwadiAllahu Ta’ala Anhum while They Are also happy with Allah Pak.” References come in Hadis Shareef in this regard that, “Each of My Sahabi is like a Star; whoever follows any One of Them in any aspect, shall gain Hidaya.
