From the day he embraced Islam until the day he died, Abu Bakr As-Siddique (May Allah be pleased with him) was the ideal Muslim, surpassing all other Companions in every sphere of life. During the Prophet`s lifetime, Abu Bakr was an exemplary soldier on the battlefield; upon the Prophet`s death, Abu Bakr (May Allah be pleased with him) remained steadfast and, through the help of Allah, held this nation together. When others suggested keeping Usaamah`s army back, Abu Bakr insisted - and correctly so - that the army should continue the mission which the Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) had in mind. When people refused to pay Zakat, and when the apostates threatened the stability of the Muslim nation, Abu Bakr (May Allah be pleased with him) was the one who remained firm and took decisive action against them.
