‘Abu Bakr is our leader’


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)’



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)



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
