The Prophet (Salallâhu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) said:
“Jibreel came to me, and showed me the gate of Jannah through which my Ummah will enter.” Abu Bakr (Radhi Allâhu ‘Anhu) said:
“O Messenger of Allah, would that I had been with you to see it!”
The Messenger of Allah (Salallâhu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) said:
“But you, O Abu Bakr, will be the first of my Ummah to enter Jannah.” [Bukhari: Kitaab Bada al-Khalq, Baab Ma Jaa fi Sifat al-Jannah;
Abu Bakr (Radhi Allâhu ‘Anhu’s) services in the Path of Allah are more than that of any person other than the Prophet (Salallâhu ‘Alaihi Wasallam). He was next after the Prophet (Salallâhu ‘Alaihi Wasallam)
in the sacrifices he made so that Islam could be established and people could enter Allah’s chosen religion en masse.
He will thus be the first person of the Muslim Ummah to enter Jannah.
His biography is a must read for all aspirants to Jannat.
The Erdogan You Don’t Know No doubt Recep Erdogan is the most successful leader so far after the fall of Ottoman caliphate. His party, the AKP (Adalet ve Kalkınma Partisi, the Justice and Development Party), won its third consecutive election in June 2011, securing approximately 50% of the vote. During his term, Turkey has seen unprecedented economic growth, constitutional reform, Islamisation and a re-emergence as a major global power. This success added to his personal charisma and hard-work have made Turkey a model to emulate for many Muslim countries. Under his watch Turkey has become the 16th largest economy in the world and a member of the G20. Realising a decades-old objective amid protest from the secular opposition, Erdogan has pushed through a reform today that favours the Quranic institutions, introduces an hour of Muslim religious instruction and exposes girls to danger of being kept at home away from school. Under Erdogan’s rule Masjids and Madrasas re- opened. Many no longer felt the need to hide the fact that they prayed Jumuah from coworkers and employers. Life got better in Turkey in many ways. The hyper-secular Attaturk Kemalists remained in a state of paranoid alert for the most part, screaming bloody murder anytime the AK Party did anything that could be considered vaguely religious. After almost a century of kemalsim he has a mammoth of a task before him. He may not be perfect but he is certainly a breath of fresh air for Muslims.
