Abu Bakr’s fear


Abû Bakr Al-Siddîq – Allâh be pleased with him – said:

I will not leave anything Allâh’s Messenger – sallAllahu ‘alyhi wasallam – did, except that I will also do it; for I fear that if I were to leave any of his commands and ways I would deviate.

-Al-Bukhârî, Al-Sahîh 2:386 hadîth no. 3093; Ibn Battah, Al-Ibânah article 77 and others.
