A fellow Sunni brother told me that Abu Bakr was in the same cave as the Holy Prophet (PBUH). Is there not Qur’anic reference to this incident and a certain companion being advised not to be afraid? Would you please provide me with the entire ayah and reference.
The ayah which refers to this incident is:
The Holy Prophet’s companion, Abu Bakr, became frightened in the cave, and cried out in anguish when he heard the enemy nearby. The Prophet (PBUH) quietened him saying, ‘Don’t be frightened, Allah is with us’.
