A Friend of Allah: Hazrat Abu Huraira (Radi Allahu Anhu) reported Allah’s Messenger (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) as stating that Allah has said, “If anyone is hostile to a friend of Mine, I have declared war against him. No one draws near to me with anything dearer to me than what I have made obligatory for him. If my servant keeps drawing near to me with supererogatory acts I shall love him, and when I love him I shall be his hearing with which he hears, his sight with which he sees, his hand with which he sees, his hand with which he grasps and his foot with which he walks. If he asks from Me I shall certainly give him and if he seeks refuge in Me I shall certainly give him refuge.” (Bukhari Sharif)

Let us sit here and talk.” He replied, “O plump one [Hazrat at-Tufail (Radi Allahu Anhu) was plump], I go out in the morning only for the sake of a salutation, saluting those I meet.” (Maalike, Baihaqi)

They then said, “Messenger of Allah, is a Jew keeping you in restraint!” to which he replied, “My Lord has prevented me from wronging one with whome a covenant has been made, or anyone else. “Then when the day was advanced the jew said, “I testify that there is no god but Allah, I testify that you are Allah’s Messenger, and half my property will be devoted to Allah’s path. I swear by Allah that my only purpose in treating you as I have done was that I might consider the description of you given in the Torah: Muhammad Bin Abdullah whose birthplace is in Makkah, whose place of emigration is in Taiba (Madina), and whose kingdom is in Syria; he is not harsh or rough, or loud-voiced in the streets, and he not characterized by coarseness or lewd speech. ‘I testy that there is no god but Allah, and I testify that you are Allah’s Messenger. Give a decision about this property of mine according to what Allah has shown you.” The Jew was very rich. (Baihaqi)

Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (Radi Allahu Anhu)

When Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (Radi Allahu Anhu) was mentioned in the presence of Hazrat Umar (Radi Allahu Anhu) he wept and said, “I wish all my good deeds could compare with what he did on a certain day and a certain night. The night was the one on which he went with Allah’s Messenger (sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) to the cave and said when they reached it, ‘I swear by Allah that you will not enter it before I have first done so, for if there is anything in it I shall be smitten by it and not you.’ He then entered and swept it and found some holes in the side of it, so he tore up his lower garment and sopped them with it; but as two were still left he thrust his feet into them and told Allah’s Messenger (Sallalahu Alaihi Wasallam) to enter. When he had done so Allah’s Messenger ( Sallalal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) laid his head on his lap and went to sleep. The foot of Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (Radi Allahu Anhu) in one of the holes received a sting, but he did not move for fear Allah’s Messenger (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) might awake. His tears, however, fell on the face of Allah’s Messenger (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam), and he asked him what was the matter with him. He replied, ‘I have been stung.’ Allah’s Messenger (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) then spat and the pain left him. The day was when Allah’s Messenger (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) left this world and the Arabs apostatized (rebelled) and refused to pay Zakaat. He said, ‘If they were to refuse me a tether I would strive with them over it. I said, Successor of Allah’s Messenger (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam), be affable and gentle to the people,’ but he replied, ‘have you who were a powerful man in the pre-Islamic period become weak in the Islamic period? The revelation has ceased and the religion has been perfected. Is it to diminish while I am alive?”
