Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddique R.A.


One day the Holy Prophet to his companions appealed
All who have wealth should give some in God's  cause

One hearing this command Umar rose in intense happiness
That day he had acquired several thousand dirhams1

He was saying  to himself that certainly that day
He would excel Siddiq by far that day

At last he  brought the wealth before the Holy Prophet
Starting the action is a prelude to the necessary sacrifice

The Holy Prophet asked him, O Umar!
To whom God's Love is the solace of the heart!

Have  you kept anything for the  family?
Muslim is responsible for family's rights

He exclaimed Half wealth is the son and wife's share
The rest is made a present to the Ummah in sacrifice

Soon after, that friend of prophethood also arrived
On whom the foundation of Love is established

That  man of proved loyalty brought with him
Everything which is creditable in the world's eye

All that right hand possessed, in cash, kind, chattel
Beautiful horses, camels, mules and donkeys

The Holy Prophet said, You also need to care for  the family
Replied that secret-keeper of Love and Fidelity

O you who give  light to the eyes of the moon and the stars
Who was  made the reason for creation of the universe

Lamp to the moth, flower to the nightingale is sufficient
For Siddiq only the Prophet of God is sufficient!
