Bea Under the Tree
Bea is when the
Sahabah told the Prophet under the tree that they will follow him. Allah
Ta'Ala Said in the Qur'an that He is Pleased with those who gave Bea
under the tree.
That is why we say Abu Bakr Radiallahu Anhu and Ali
Radiallahu anhu and Fatima Radiallahu anha and like that for all Sahabah.
My Allah Be Pleased with them. After the Prophet passed, Abu Bakr
Radiallahu Anhu came in his place. This is called Khalifa, one who comes
in place after someone. Khalf in Arabic means behind, after. People then
came and gave Bea to Abu Bakr Radiallahu Anhu. Meaning they acknowledge
that he is the head of the government, this government is called
Khilfatu n'Nubuwa. We don't have that today and we don't have anyone to
give Bea to. We can't go find someone and say to him that he is our Khalifa and give Bea to
him and claim that to be Khilftu n'Nubuwa.
No one can give Bea to anyone today. When Imam Mehdi appears by the
Kaaba and the Khilaftu n'Nubuwah returns then we will all give Bea to
him, till then we can't do that.
