Smilla hamdulillah salatu salam ala Rasulillah who Allah Allah He was with me he edge marine Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu.
So in the spirit of concluding messages, I thought that I would share just a little glimpse and some of the wisdom and insights offered by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in the last in the final moments of his life. Because that was the ultimate concluding message. What the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shared and what he requested in his last and final moments. It's a very powerful, very captivating very, for a believer, a very gut wrenching accounts, where you feel like you are witnessing the departure of Muhammad Rasulullah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But there's a few things that I want to
highlight in sha Allah, it's, it's something when I teach a class, where I go through the final week of the life of the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that class takes about three hours. But what I'm going to do is I'm going to select just a few things, and highlight them that I feel that we can take home with us in sha Allah, and we can implement immediately within our lives. First and foremost, in the last and final days of the life of the prophets, Allah they some he made a very specific point, to reach out to, to ask for, to request time with every single person that the prophets allottees I'm had a personal relationship with. Everyone from a boot off here, who was able
to offer a boot off here was a freed slave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But he had a personal relationship with him. So he called the Budoff here and so he could sit with him and talk to him. The son of Zaidan hybridising was Oussama, who saw my children who say there are the Allahu Taala and Huma, who is who sama took news aid, who Simas father was the like the adopted son of the prophets, Allah the salam. And his mother was formerly the nanny of the prophets, Allah Nizam, she had cared for the prophets, Allah the son when he was a child.
And so even though again, it's not a direct blood relation, the prophets Allah the son requested for Osama to come, and he held his hand and he connected with him and bid him farewell.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam requested all of his family members like his uncle's and his cousins, abayas, the sons of Abbas, he requested them to all come and he sat with them and spoke to them. All the wives of the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam, the Mothers of the Believers they came and they visited with him,
and probably one of the most powerful and touching moments from those last moments of the prophets, Allah Nizam any moment that he shared with anyone was Aisha Radi Allahu taala. And her says, the prophets Allah the son passed away on Monday morning.
And on Sunday evening, as the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam was sick, was lying there and his entire family was huddled around him, including the Mothers of the Believers fought him out of the Allahu Taala and her walked into the room. The prophets Allah, these him had his eyes closed, he was burning with fever, he was putting water on his own face with his hand. But when fought them, I walked into the room. It's like the prophets allottee some realized my thought to my eyes here.
And he immediately looked towards the door and he started looking at Fatima. He couldn't even speak properly. So he looked at Fatima like when Osama took news he came, he says the prophets Allah the son pointed at me and he went like this and he pointed at me and he went like this and I knew he was making dua for me.
So when Fatuma came in, he just started looking at Fatima or the Allahu Taala without breaking his stare. And we all turned around to look what is the prophets Allah he's I'm looking at so intently, and we saw that it was Fatima. And I showed her the Allahu Taala Ananda narration she swears if you saw thought to my walk, it was like you're watching Muhammad walk sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. She walked like him. She talked like him she moved and gestured her hands like him.
It was unmistakable that she was his daughter.
And so everyone went fought him. I walked into the room, everyone cleared the way and backed away and fought to my came and sat down by the prophets, Allah Nizam, and held his hand and started to cry singer father
and the prophets allottee something called her close and he whispered something into her ear. And when he whispered something into her ears, she started to sob like profusely, we
cry severely. She couldn't catch her breath. And then he called her close again, and he whispered something into her ear, and she started to smile. And then at that time, she bid farewell to her beloved father, and she got up and she left.
And years later, or excuse me,
Days Later, after everyone had kind of taken some time for grieving and mourning in the process
I shattered the Allahu Taala on her our mother i She goes to Fatima Radi Allahu Taala Anna and says, I've been meaning to ask you about that interaction. It was fascinating. Please explain and faulty Marathi Allahu Taala on her. She says that when I came and I was very distraught that seeing my father in such pain, but I had not yet come to terms. I had not made peace with the fact that my father was leaving.
Her mother died when she was young. She her her baby brothers died in front of her. All three of her older sisters passed away during her lifetime. All I have is my father left.
And she said when my father called me close, he whispered something to me saying that I've known that I am departing since Ramadan
because every Ramadan Gibreel comes any read, reviews the Quran with me. And this year when he came, we went over it twice. And that let me know that we were confirming the Quran finalizing the review of the Quran, and it was time for me to go. And she said, I started to cry because that was the first time I actually accepted with my heart that I'm going to lose my father.
And then when he called me close again, that he was fair to me, but you will be the first of my family to join me in the Hereafter. And I smiled
and fought tomorrow, the Allahu Taala would leave peacefully and beautifully from this world six months after her father passed away.
Why do I mention this? I'm trying to highlight some lessons here. A concluding message number one, cherish your personal relationships. value the people in your life, build fruitful, beneficial, powerful, meaningful relationships. Cherish the people in your life. Let this weekend be a weekend of renewal. There might be broken hearts, there might be hurt feelings, there might be grievances and disagreements and, and quarrels and issues. Let this weekend be a moment to rejuvenation. Repent, renew. And as you're going home from here, call someone text someone go to someone's house, knock on someone's door, hug them, embrace them, kiss them
and cherish those personal relationships. That was a lesson from the life of the prophet Ceylonese I'm gonna concluding message.
Number two, the prophets Allah Nizam Aisha Radi Allahu Taala Anna says, the day before the prophets Allah Nizam passed away. He said this one key piece of advice he said I see no a vulnerable Allah.
I see. Villa.
Always have good expectations from Allah subhanaw taala always have the best of expectations from Allah.
That's something very, very important. We are struggling we are dealing with some spiritual bleakness people lack hope.
People don't see any lights on the horizon.
We need to renew our iman and renew our faith and know who we believe in and his minds and His power and His greatness.
And he can bring lights in the middle of the night.
He can deliver us from the most overwhelming of circumstances.
As one of the speakers before me mentioned Romania, tequila haga, Allahu Mahajan.
He will make a way you just have to believe so I see no oven Nabila always know that Allah will make a way for you, and Allah subhanaw taala will help you.
And then another very powerful message. Concluding message from the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the prophets a lot easier, said a Salah, a Salah, why Malacca, TEMA Newcom.
Another NARRATION The Prophets a lot Hizam said, salut. Salatu
wa two seconds ago.
What do halka
do Hakka men. Melaka is a man who come. He's the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said in another narration, pray your salon, give your Zakah and look after fulfilled the rights of the people that you are responsible for.
This is the balance that we have to learn to strike in our lives. Maintain your relationship with Allah and the primary form of that is keeping up with your prayers. And then secondly, take care of the people value the people cherish the people care for the people that Allah subhanaw taala has given you responsibility over
we will be asked about it we will be we will be accounted for it. There is a reckoning that is coming
And Allah subhanaw taala will readily forgive our indiscretions in regards to him. But when we violate other people's rights, that's something that won't be so easily forgiven. We will be held to account for it. We've heard about the month of Ramadan and we talk about salah and Quran and fasting, make this Ramadan a time of personal improvement as well.
Fix your character, repair your relationships,
learn to be more responsible in your personal life and towards the people that have rights upon you.
And lastly, and finally, what I mentioned here as a concluding message,
when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he went a week before he passed away. He called one of the other people who is another freed slaves, the prophets a lot, he said freedom. And so he was very close to the prophets a lot. He said to him, he called them and he said, Take me to a buffet here. The graveyard of Medina, I want to go pay my respects. His family was there, his children were there, his friends and companions were there. So he said, I want to go pay my respects one last time, and he helped him walk and he went all the way to the graveyard and paid his respects there. And afterwards, as he was walking back, he says to the, to the to the man who's helping him walk,
that Allah subhanaw taala gave the slave a choice.
He gave me a choice
to continue to live in this world.
Or to depart from this world and go and be with Allah.
And the man started to cry and he said, Please tell me, I beg you, I will do anything. Tell me that you asked to stay. I need you to say we need you to stay.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said no, it's time for me to go and be with Allah. Ludmila rafiqul, Allah, O Allah, I want to be with you.
And so I mentioned this last and final point here, not to create a sense of morbidity, nor to create a sense of, you know, giving up on this particular life. But to understand that we do have a final destination, we do have a goal and objective. And the more we are focused on the goal in the objective and the final destination, the more meaningfully the more with dignity and honor and focus and respect, will we live this particular life, and I'll end by quoting a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam found in the book of Timothy, it's an authentic narration from Abu Dhabi, the Allahu taala. I knew, he says, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Madhava,
Madhava at the ledger, so very powerful, you know, metaphor and example a visual from the prophets, Allah these and what this means is when you are traveling, and you're afraid of being pursued, while traveling, like the Prophet Salamis him in Abu Bakr, Siddiq, Radi Allahu taala, I knew when they were leaving MCCA they knew that my kids were trying to assassinate them. So when did they leave, they left at nights, they slipped out at nights Madhava at Elijah, somebody who's afraid for their safety, tries to leave at night, woman, Elijah, Bubbleman, Zillow,
and somebody who is very strategic in their departure will actually reach their destination.
What does that exactly mean?
What that means is that when you know that there is there are obstacles. There are challenges, such as in the example of traveling, traveling, like in the example of hijra, you have some people that are trying to chase you and find you and kill you. Do you have people that are trying to hunt you down? So when you know, in any endeavor, that there are challenges, that there are obstacles? You have to be willing
to figure out an alternative strategy.
You have to put thought into it. You have to figure out what you're going to do, how you're going to avoid the danger. And if the answer, the strategic plan is very, very inconvenient, like traveling in the middle of the night. We're not talking about taking a road trip. We're not talking about taking a red eye flights. We're talking about traveling through the middle of the desert on Camelback in the middle of the night. Where the only light you have is whatever the moon is providing for you.
It's very dangerous. But you have to recognize the challenges. You have to figure out an alternative strategy and you have to be willing to sacrifice and then he says woman
and if you're willing to do that, recognize challenges strategize, and
Then sacrifice, you will reach your destination
and then the prophets Allah the sum brings it together. And I'll conclude with this. He says Allah in Silla Allah He Kalia.
He says that the merchandise, the end goal, the objective of what we want from Allah subhanaw taala is very, very precious. It will not come very easily. It's not cheap.
It's not cheap. It won't come easily. Allah in Silla, Allah he will Jana, because what we want from Allah subhanaw taala is we want paradise.
And the smallest bit of paradise is more precious, more valuable, more beautiful than this whole world and whatever it contains.
So seize the opportunity, recognize the challenges, strategize, know your goal, and then be willing to sacrifice to reach your goal. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us all the ability to succeed in this life, say I mean, and may Allah subhanaw taala allow us all to reach our objective in the life of the hereafter say I mean,
Leslie. And finally, I just wanted to take
