PLEASE POST ANYTHING ABOUT the, VERACIOUS ABU BAKR RA
The most noble person after the prophets (alayhimus salam) is Abu Bakr (radiallahu anh), the Most Truthful (as-Siddiq). Abu Bakr's (radiallahu anh) name before Islam was 'Abd al-Ka'ba; the Messenger (salallahu 'alahyi wa sallam) changed his name to 'Abdullah after Islam. His full lineage is: Abu Bakr son of Abu Quhafa 'Uthman, son of 'Amir, son of Ka'b, son of Sa'd, son of Taym, son of Murra, son of Ka'b, son of Lu'ay, son of Ghalib, son of Fihr al-Qurashi al-Taymi.
He was called the Most Truthful One (as-Siddeeq) due to his profound honesty, his devotion to the truth, the strength of his belief, and his being devinely guided (tawfiq). He is the best of all of the friends (awliya) of Allah from among the earlier ones and the later ones.
The Messenger of Allah (salallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said, "The sun has neither risen nor set on anyone after the Prophets and Messengers superior to Abu Bakr." 
It is narrated that when the Messenger of Allah (salallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) related the incident of the Ascension (mi'raj) [to the people of Makkah], they rejected him and went to Abu Bakr saying, "Your friend is saying such and such." Abu Bakr (radiallahu anh) replied that if the Messenger of Allah (salallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) had said it, he was telling the truth. He then went to the Messenger of Allah (salallahu 'alayhi wa sallam), who related the details of the incident to him. Every time the Messenger of Allah (salallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) made a statement, Abu Bakr (radiallahu anh) would say, "You have spoken the truth." When he had finished informing him, Abu Bakr (radiallahu anh) said, "I testify that you are the true Messenger of Allah (salallahu 'alahi wa sallam)," upon which the Messenger of Allah (salallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said, "And I testify that you are indeed the most truthful (as-siddiq)." This is stated in al-Tafsir al-Kabir.
 Recorded in Kans al-'Ummal 36112 from the accounts of Ibn 'Asakir with a slight variation. Also recorded al an-Musnad al-Jami' 11069 from the Musnad of 'Abd ibn Humayd on the authority of Abu'l-Darda (radiallahu anh).
خيبر خيبر يا يهود جيش محمد (صلى الله عليه وسلم) سوف يعود
كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الْقِتَالُ وَهُوَ كُرْهٌ لَكُمْ ۖ وَعَسَىٰ أَنْ تَكْرَهُوا شَيْئًا وَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَكُمْ ۖ وَعَسَىٰ أَنْ تُحِبُّوا شَيْئًا وَهُوَ شَرٌّ لَكُمْ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنْتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ

"If I had taken anyone besides Allaah as my friend I would have taken Abu Bakr", stated Rasulullaah (SallAllaahu alayhi wasallam). This concise and appropriate statement, bearing in mind the human behavioural tendency of like attracting like, confirms the deep-rooted love the Master had for the first senior citizen of Makkah to accept Islaam. Indeed Sayyidina Abu Bakr's (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) entire pattern of life mirrored Rasulullaah's (SAW) teachings to the minutest detail.
Hadhrat Abu-Bakr (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) is one of the four loyal Companions of Rasulullaah (SallAllaahu alayhi wasallam) who is called Siddiq-e-Akbar.

إملاء الخير خير من السكوت والسكوت خير من إملاء الشر
"Speaking what is good is better than silence, and silence is better than speaking evil."
if you really want to know everything about sayyiuduna abu bakr (ra) i highly recommend you listen to imam anwar al awlaki's (may Allah protect him) series on the life of abu bakr (ra). he covers his life in so much details, its over 20 hour long. also maulana yahya abassi has amazing talk regarding hazrat abu bakr (ra) he did one here in london a few years ago in masjid abu bakr (ra) never seen soo many people cry. what really touched me was on hadith to the nearest meaning in which rasoolullah (saw) said ' i have repaid everyone who has done good to me except for abu bakr, for only Allah (saw) can repay him' subhanAllah.
In the rouse of the new awakening and global "Islam-asization" will the world be more chaotic or will there more love and tolerance?
From Hayatus Sahaba:
Hadhrat Aa'isha narrates that her father Hadhrat Abu Bakr was a close friend of Rasulullaah even during the Period of Ignorance. One day, Hadhrat Abu Bakr left home to meet Rasulullaah. When he met Rasulullaah he said, "O Abul Qaasim! Why is it that you are no longer present in the gatherings of your people? Why do they accuse you of speaking ill of their forefathers?" Rasulullaah said, "I am the Rasul of Allaah and am calling you towards Allaah." As soon as Rasulullaah had completed, Hadhrat Abu Bakr accepted Islaam. When Rasulullaah had left Hadhrat Abu Bakr, there was none between the mountains of Makkah happier than Rasulullaah because Hadhrat Abu Bakr had accepted Islaam. Hadhrat Abu Bakr then met Hadhrat Uthmaan bin Affaan Hadhrat Talha bin Ubaydill Hadhrat Zubayr bin Awwaam and Hadhrat Sa'd bin Abi Waqqaas , all of whom accepted Islaam. The following day, Hadhrat Abu Bakr met Hadhrat Uthmaan bin Madh'oon, Hadhrat Abu ubaydah bin Jarraah, Hadhrat Abdur Rahmaan bin Awf, Hadhrat Abu Salma bin Abdil Asad and Hadhrat Arqam bin Abil Arqam, all of whom also readily accepted Islaam.Ibn Is'haaq narrates, 'When Hadhrat Abu, Bakr accepted Islaam and made his Islaam known, he started inviting people towards Allaah. He was well acquainted with the people, well liked by his people, soft-natured and from
all of the Quraysh he possessed the most knowledge of their family trees and the good and bad conditions that prevailed over them. He was a good-natured businessman of excellent character and because of his vast knowledge, his business expertise and his entertaining nature, his people used to come to him and confide in him in numerous matters. He therefore started calling all those people to Allaah and to Islaam who confided in him when they met him and sat in his company. As far as I am told, the following persons accepted Islaam at his hands: Hadhrat Zubayr bin Awaam, Uthmaan bin Affaan, Talha bin Ubaydillaah, Sa'd bin Abi Waqqaas and Abdur Rahmaan bin Auf.
They all came to Rasulullaah with Hadhrat Abu Bakr and Rasulullaah presented Islaam to them, recited the Qur'aan to them and informed them about the rights Islaam had on them. They all accepted Imaan. These eight persons were the forerunners in Islaam who believed in Rasulullaah and believed everything he brought from Allaah."Hadhrat Muntashir narrates from his father that when the Sahabah pledged their allegiance at the hands of Rasulullaah, he stipulated that their pledges be solely for the pleasure of Allaah and that they pledge to always obey the truth.
When Hadhrat Abu Bakr took the pledge of allegiance from people, he said to them, "You are obliged to honour your pledge to me as long as I am obedient to Allaah." Thereafter, the pledge of allegiance that Hadhrat Umar and those after him took from people was like the pledge that Rasulullaah took from people.
Hadhrat Ibn Afeef,narrates t hat he saw Hadhrat Abu Bakr accepting the pledge of allegiance form people after the demise of Rasulullaah. When a group of Sahabah would gather before him, he would say to them, "Do you pledge at my hands that you would listen and obey Allaah, His Book and then the Ameer?" Only when they agreed to this did Hadhrat Abu Bakr accept their pledges of allegiance.While addressing the people, Hadhrat Ali once asked, "O people! Who is the most courageous person?" "You are, O Ameerul Mu'mineen," the people submitted. Hadhrat Ali then said, "Although I have defeated everyone who has confronted me, the most courageous person is Abu Bakr. We had constructed a shed for Rasulullaah (during the Battle of Badr) and then asked who would remain with Rasulullaah so that'the Mushrikeen do not attack him. By Allaah! Whenever a Mushrik even drew close to us Abu Bakr was there with his sword drawn near the head side of Rasulullaah. He attacked anyone who dared attack Rasulullaah. He was certainly the
bravest of people."
Hadhrat Ali continues, "I have seen the Quraysh grab hold of Rasulullaah with one person treating him angrily and another shaking him while they said to him, 'Do you make all the gods into one?!' By Allaah! None of us dared go close to Rasulullaah (for fear of being beaten) besides Abu Bakr. He would hit one person, wrestle with another and shake someone else as he said, 'Shame on you people! Will you kill a man for saying, 'Allaah is my Rabb?"' Hadhrat Ali then lifted the shawl he was wearing and wept until his beard became wet. He then said, "I ask you to swear by Allaah whether the mu'min from the court of Fir'oun was better or Abu Bakr." When everyone remained silent, Hadhrat Ali said, "By Allaah! A moment of the life of Abu Bakr is better than the earth full of people like the Mu'min from the court of Fir'oun. While the Mu'min from the court of Fir'oun concealed his Imaan, Abu Bakr made his Imaan public."Hadhrat Abu Bakr Insists on Preaching Islaam Openly and is Grievously Hurt after Delivering a Sermon
Hadhrat Aa'isha narrates that on one occasion when the eighty three companions of Rasulullaah got together, Hadhrat Abu Bakr insistently asked Rasulullaah for permission to preach Islaam openly. Rasulullaah
said, "O Abu Bakr! We are too few." However, Hadhrat Abu Bakr continued insisting until Rasulullah gave the permission. The Muslims then scattered in different areas of the Masjidul Haraam, each one taking a place amongst his tribesmen. Hadhrat Abu Bakr then stood up to deliver a sermon as Rasulullaah remained seated. This was the very first public sermon dedicated to inviting people towards Allaah and His Rasool.
The Mushrikeen then attacked Hadhrat Abu Bakr and the Muslims and wherever they were in the Masjidul Haraam, they were beaten very severely. Hadhrat Abu Bakr, was trampled and beaten most savagely. The wretched Utba bin Rabee'ah started hittin Hadhrat Abu Bakr with his shoes that had a sole stuck onto another (making them thick and hard). He hit Hadhrat Abu Bakr so much and also jumped on his stomach that the soles actually twisted and the nose of Hadhrat Abu Bakr could not be differentiated from his face.
The Banu Taym tribe (to which Hadhrat Abu Bakr belonged) came running and pushed the Mushrikeen away from Hadhrat Abu Bakr. They then carried him in a sheet and took him home. By then they were convinced that he would die. The Banu Taym then returned to the Masjidul Haraam and announced, "By Allaah! We shall definitely kill Utba bin Rabee'ah if Abu Bakr dies!" thereafter, they returned to Hadhrat Abu Bakr and together with (his father) Abu Quhaafa, they started talking to Hadhrat Abu Bakr to get him to respond. Hadhrat Abu Bakr finally spoke after the day had passed and asked, "How is Rasulullaah" His people rebuked and criticised him. They then stood up (to leave) and said to (his mother) Ummul Khayr, "Take care of him and give him something to eat or drink."
When his mother was alone with him, she insisted that he eat, but he kept asking, "How is Rasulullaah?' She said, "I swear by Allaah that I have no knowledge about your friend." He said, "Go and ask Ummu Jameel bint Khattaab about Rasulullaah." His mother left to meet Ummu Jameel and asked her, "Abu Bakr wants to know from you about Muhammad bin Abdillaah." Ummu Jameel responded by saying, "I neither know Abu Bakr nor Muhammad bin Abdillaah. However, if you like, I shall go with you to see your son." Ummul Khayr agreed and Ummu Jameel accompanied her until they came to Hadhrat Abu Bakr who was lying down (unable to even sit) and extremely ill. Coming closer, Ummu Jameel cried, "By Allaah! Those who did this to you must be people of kufr and sin! I hope that Allaah takes revenge from them on your behalf."
Hadhrat Abu Bakr then asked, "How is Rasulullaah? " Ummu Jameel said, "Your mother is listening." He said, 'You have nothing to fear from her." She then replied, "Rasulullaah is safe and sound." "Where is he?" Hadhrat Abu Bakr asked further. Ummu Jameel said, "He is in the house of Arqam." Hadhrat Abu Bakr vowed, "I swear by Allaah that I shall neither eat or drink until I go to Rasulullaah." The two ladies then waited for a time (late at night) when the movement of people had calmed down and people were resting. Giving him support, they then took him to Rasulullaah. When he saw Hadhrat Abu Bakr Rasulullaah hugged him and kissed him. The other Muslims also hugged him and (seeing his battered condition) Rasulullaah took great pity on him.
Hadhrat Abu Bakr said, "May my parents be sacrificed for you, O Rasulullaah! There is nothing wrong with me except for what that wretch did to my face. This is my mother who has been exceptionally good to me. You are a most blessed person so invite her towards Allaah and pray for her. Perhaps Allaah shall use you to save her from the Fire of Jahannam." Rasulullaah then made du'aa for her and invited her to believe'in Allaah. She then accepted Islaam.Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Umar says that Rasulullaah was once sitting with Hadhrat Abu Bakr, who was wearing a robe on which he used thorns as buttons at the chest. At that moment, Hadhrat Jibra'eel descended from the heavens and after conveying Allaah's greetings to Rasulullaah, he asked, "Why do I see Abu Bakr wearing a robe that he buttons at the chest with thorns?" Rasulullaah replied, "O Jibra'eel! He had spent all his wealth on me before the conquest of Makkah (and has nothing left for himself)." Hadhrat Jibra'eel said to Rasulullaah "Convey Allaah's greetings to him and tell him that his Rabb asks, 'Are you pleased with Me in this state of poverty or unpleased?"
Rasulullaah turned to Hadhrat Abu Bakr and said, "O Abu Bakr! Hadhrat Jibra'eel is here. He conveys to you the greetings from Allaah Who asks, 'Are you pleased with Me in this state of poverty or unpleased?"' Hadhrat Abu Bakr started to cry and said, "Can I ever be displeased with my Rabb? I am pleased with my Rabb!" I am pleased with my Rabb!"
