‘Abu Bakr is our leader’

Question

Could you verify this narration?

Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said: ‘Abu Bakr is our leader/master (sayyiduna) and he freed our master, i.e. Bilal (radiyallahu ‘anhuma)’

 

Answer

Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Jabir ibn ‘Abdillah (radiyallahu ‘anhuma). The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 3754)
