‘Aishah , Abi Sa‘id and Ibn ‘Abbas 4! -,3; ees Said, “Abi Bakr was with the Prophet in the cave (of the mountain called Ath-Thir at Makkah).”

3652. Narrated Al-Bara’: Abt Bakr 2,25 “z ‘i! bought a (camel) saddle from ‘Azib for thirteen Dirham. Aba Bakr said to ‘Azib, “Tell Al-Bara’ to carry the saddle for me.” ‘Azib said, “No, unless you relate to me what happened to you and Allah’s Messenger # when you left Makkah while Al-Mushrikun were in search of you.” Abt Bakr said, ““We left Makkah and we travelled continuously for that night and the following day till it was midday. I looked (around) searching for shade to take as shelter, and suddenly I came across a rock, and found a little shade there. So I cleaned the place and spread a bed for the Prophet in the shade and said to him, ‘Lie down, O Allah’s Messenger.’ So the Prophet #% lay down and I went out, looking around to see if there was any person pursuing us. Suddenly I saw a shepherd driving his sheep towards the rock, seeking what we had already sought from it. I asked him, “To whom do you belong, O boy” He said, ‘I belong to a man from Quraish. He named the man and I recognized him. I asked him, ‘Is there any milk with your sheep?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ I said, “Will you then milk (some) for us?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ Then I asked him to tie the legs of one of the ewe and clean its udder, and then ordered him to clean his hands from dust. Then the shepherd cleaned his hands by striking his hands against one another. After doing so, he milked a small amount of milk. I used to

Then I took the milk to the Prophet #£, whom I found awake. I said to him, ‘Drink, © Allah’s Messenger.’ So he drank till I became pleased. Then I said, ‘It is trme for us to move, O Allah’s Messenger!’ He said, ‘Yes.’ So we set out while the people (i.e., Quraish Mushrikiin) were searching for us, but none found us except Suraga bin Malik bin Ju‘shum who was riding his horse. I said, ‘These are our pursuers who have found us, O Allah’s Messenger!’ He said, ‘Do not be sad (or afraid), surely, Allah is with us.” [See Vol. 4, Hadith No.3615}.

3653. Narrated Aba Bakr 2 41 225: I said to the Prophet # while I was in the cave, “If any of them should look under his feet, he would see us.” He said, “O Abia Bakr! What do you think of two (persons) the third of whom is Allah?”

(3) CHAPTER. The saying of the Prophet 32 , “Close the gates (in the Mosque), except the gate of Abu Bakr.”

This is narrated by Ibn ‘Abbas on the authority of the Prophet 2.

3654. Narrated Abd Sa‘id Al-Khudri -,25: is! Allah’s Messenger 2% addressed the people saying, “‘Allah gave a choice to one of (His) slave to choose this world or what is with Him. The slave chose what is with Allah.” Abt Bakr wept, and we were astonished at his weeping caused by what the Prophet mentioned as to a slave (of Allah) who had been offered a choice, (we learned later on) that Allah’s Messenger 2 himself was the person who was given the choice, and that Abt Bakr knew more than us. Allah’s Messenger added, “‘Aba Bakr has favoured me much with his company and property (wealth) more than anybody else . If I were to take a Khalil other than my Lord, I would have taken Abi Bakr, but the Islamic brotherhood and friendship is sufficient. Close all the gates in the mosque except the gate of Aba Bakr.”

[See Vol. 1, Hadith No. 466]
