The Secret of Sayyidina Abu Bakr as-Siddiq (r) and Surat al-Baqara


Mawlana Shaykh Hisham said to study something I don’t remember what.  Then dreaming in dream that he is telling me that Mawlana Rumi is Naqshbandi and that he wrote a couplet in praise of Abu Bakr as-Siddiq radiy Allahu anhu saying the whole of Surat al-Baqara was revealed on as-Siddiq radiy Allahu anhu.


wa `alaykum salam,

There is an isharah for what Shaykh Hisham showed you in the verse:

إِلاَّ تَنصُرُوهُ فَقَدْ نَصَرَهُ اللّهُ إِذْ أَخْرَجَهُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ ثَانِيَ اثْنَيْنِ إِذْ هُمَا فِي الْغَارِ

{If ye help him not, still Allah helped him when those who disbelieve drove him forth, the second of two; when they two were in the cave. } ( 9:40)

where “the second of two” is a reference to Surat al-Baqara. In this dream is a hint that Sayyidina Jalaluddin ar-Rumi was a “secret” Naqshbandi.
