9- On the authority of Rabeeyah al-Asslamee who said : I used to serve the Messenger of Allaah - sallAllaahu alayhi va sallam - and he gave me some land, and he gave Abu Bakr some land, and when it came to dividing the land, we differed over a cluster of dates from a date palm tree. Abu Bakr said: this is on my side of the land! And I said: It is on my side! There used to be a problem between me and Abu Bakr, and Abu Bakr said a statement to me which I hated but he regretted saying it, so he said to me:
‘O Rabeeyah! Say something to me similar to what I said to you, so that it can be requital.’
So I said: ‘I will not say it.’
Abu Bakr said: ‘You will say it or I will request the Messenger of Allaah - sallAllaahu alayhi va salaam — to order you to say it.
Abu Bakr left that portion of the land for me and went off to the Prophet - sallAllaahu alayhi va sallam - and I followed him. The people from my tribe followed us and said to me: ‘May Allaah have mercy on Abu Bakr, why is he going to the Messenger of Allaah - sallAllaahu alayhi iva sallam — about you, and he said what he said about you.’
So I said : ‘Do you know who this is?? This is Abu Bakr as-Siddeeq, he is one of the two who were in the cave, he is one who has grown old as a Muslim (one of the elders of the Muslims), beware he does not turn around and see you assisting me against him and becomes angry and he meets the Messenger of Allaah - sallAllaahu alayhi va sallam , and the Messenger of Allaah - sallAllaahu alayhi va sallam — will become angry due to him being angry, and then Allaah Azza wa Jal becomes angry due to them being angry and then Rabeeyah will be destroyed.’
They said: ‘What do you order us to do?’
I said: ‘Go back.’
Abu Bakr - RadhiAllaahuanhu- went off to the Messenger of Allaah - sallAllaahu alayhi va sallam -, so I followed him by myself, until he reached the Prophet - sallAllaahu alayhi va sallam — and he told him the story as it was. The Prophet - sallAllaahu alayhi va sallam — raised his head towards me and said: ‘O Rabiah what’s the matter between you and as-Siddeeq?’
I said : ‘O Messenger of Allaah - sallAllaahu alayhi va sallam — such and such happened, and he said a statement to me which I disliked, then he said to me, say something similar to what I said to you so that it can be requited, but I refused.’
Then the Messenger of Allaah - sallAllaahu alayhi va sallam — said: ‘Yes, do not say a word back to him, but say: May Allaah forgive you O Abu Bakr. May Allaah forgive you O Abu Bakr.’
Hasan said: ‘Abu Bakr turned around and he was crying.’ No. 3258
