Hazrath #AbuBakr ر / In Tafseer-e-Kabeer of Imam Fakhruddin Raazi & Qasais e Kubra of Imam Jalalluddin Suyuti it is recorded that Hazrath Abu Bakr ر had requested that when he leaves this world, he should be shrouded, the Funeral Prayer prayed & then taken to the Sacred Burial Chamber of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ . He said salutations should be offered to the Prophet ﷺ & then it should be proclaimed, ‘O Messenger of Allah ﷺ ! Your companion of the cave, Abu Bakrر is present’. He said if the door to the Prophet’s Burial Chamber automatically opens then he should be buried inside or he should be buried at Jannat al-Baqi, the Sacred Cemetery. When his blessed funeral bier was taken to the Prophetﷺ’s Burial Chamber & the Companions had presented their greeting, they said, ‘O Messenger of Allah ﷺ! Abu Bakr ر is at your door’. It is reported that the door of the Prophet’s Burial Chamber opened on its own & a voice was heard from the blessed grave of the Prophet ﷺ saying, 'Adqelul Habeeba ilal Habeeb
wa innal Habeeba mushtaqul illal Habeeb
Bring my beloved to his beloved / For the beloved is longing for his beloved
Hazrath Abu Bakr ر was buried within the Sacred Burial Chamber. Ponder, leaving your doubts & sectarian bias aside, on the request to be taken to the Prophet’s Burial Chamber, to greet, to proclaim that Abu Bakr is present & to say if the door opens on its own then he must be buried inside. Should not the Companions have stated as to who will open the door for the Prophet is buried & dead. The fact that Hazrath Abu Bakr ر requested this & the Companions carried out his request are proof that they believed the Prophet ﷺ is functional on another dimension beyond the physical (Hayaat-un-Nabie) . His tasarruf or 'ability to interact' is prevalent unto this day. The door opened & the voice was heard . When Abu Bakr ر was placed in his grave, Hazrath Aliر was at his head side and he witnessed something that made him cry. The Companions enquired as to why he cried & he said. “I saw the Prophet ﷺ arise from his grave, look at Abu Bakr ر and pray, ‘O Allah! For the sake of the white beard of Abu Bakr ر forgive all the white bearded members of my community.
