Summary

Biography

Abu Bakr was the first head of state to the Rashidun Caliphate (the first Muslim state). He ruled with the title "the successor of the Messenger of Allah" (khalifa-tul-Rassool), and was caliph in the period (632-634).

Abu Bakr was born in Mecca, one of Banu Taim quraysh clan. According to early Muslim historians, he was a trader and highly recognized as a judge, as the interpreter of dreams, and as a scholar who was in Mecca traditions. He was one of the last people anyone would have expected to convert to the faith preached by Muhammad. Yet he was one of the first who converted to Islam and a central role in the conversion of many of the Quraysh and the people of Mecca.

Originally he was called Abd-ul-Ka'ba ("servant of the house of God"), but when he converted, he took the name Abd-Allah ("servant of God"). But he is usually called Abu Bakr (from the Arabic word Bakr meaning a young camel) due to their interest in raising camels. Sunni Muslims recognize him as Al-Siddiq ("the truth" or "sincere"). His full name was Abd-Allah ibn Abi Quhaafah.

Abu Bakr, once a wealthy man, made himself poor by releasing eight Muslim slaves to rescue them from their polytheistic masters: Bilal, Abu Fakih, Ammar, Abu Fuhayra, Lubaynah, Al-Nahdiah, Umm Ubays and Zinnira.

He was one of Muhammad's constant companions. When Mohammed fled from Mecca in 622 Hijra, Abu Bakr was the only one who followed him. Abu Bakr was also linked to Muhammad by marriage when Abu Bakr's daughter Aisha married Muhammad soon after moving to Medina.
