The First Caliph of Islam: Lesson 2
Previously we learned that Abu Bakr As-Siddiq was the first of those who accepted the religion of Islam. We also learned that he was the first of the caliphate. We learned that he had a high
standard of character that until this day most of us will never match it. He was of those who
surrendered for Allah his possessions for Islam and for the Messenger (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam).
What do you remember from last weeks reading? Briefly tell us what you found to be interesting from before. Did you learn anything new from the reading? What do you think will happen now for Abu Bakr (radiAllahu anhu) as we continue to read?
Students are encouraged to read the text for Book 1; Lesson 2; pgs. 14 - 19. If you have any
questions regarding the text you are advised to use available sources to you and parental
assistance, you may of course ask the instructor also.
Please provide detailed answers for the following questions to the best of your ability InshaA'Allah.

(sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallam). How are their backgrounds similar?

3. Draw a comparison chart that describes the nature of The Prophet (salla allahu alaihi
wa sallam) and Abu Bakr As-Siddiq's character.
