Every day after fajr Abu bakr (Ra) would go in an opposite direction of his house and he would go deep into the desert was very curious. I’m going to go follow him and find out what he’s doing.
He said I saw him go into this beat-up old house and he said he spent a long time in there, wasn’t like a short amount of time. So, umar (Ra) said I waited until I could no longer see him meaning he made his way back to Medina.
omar (Ra) said I knocked on the door. Okay, and he said this woman opened the door. She was elderly she was frail. She was blind and they were a bunch of little kids running around. And she said that I’m a blind woman. And I have no one to take care of me.
Umar (Ra) said who is that visitor that comes to you every single day? The answer she says, I don’t know who he is. He never once shared his name with me. umar (ra) said, what does he do?
May Allah reward him. Every morning, He comes, Listen, by the way, she details it. She says he cleans my home. He washes our clothes. He grinds our wheat. He bakes our bread. He cooks our breakfast and then he leaves, SubhanAllah, think about that. if this was the only Only narration we had about abu bakr (Ra) it’s incredible.
Oh Abu bakr (Ra), you’ve exhausted us. Anyone that comes after you is exhausted.
