Abū Bakr ibn Abu Quhhafa (c. October 57323 August 634 CE / 13 AH) was a companion of and the first Muslim ruler after Muhammad (632–634). Sunnis regard him as his rightful successor (caliph) and the first of four righteous Caliphs (Rashidun). The Shi'a believe he violated Muhammad's direct orders and orchestrated a coup d'état. Scholarly consensus lists him as the first Muslim Caliph.


  • Surely I have a Devil who seizes me(also: who comes to me), so if i become angry stay away from me.
    • In a sermon during which he was caliph;kanz al ummal vol.3 pg 136; tabarani: al mu'jam al awsat.
  • O ye men, whoever amongst you worshipped Muhammad, let him know that Muhammad is dead, and whoever amongst you worshipped Allah, let him know that Allah is Living, there is no death for Him.
