I'd like for all of us to
go back over 1400 years ago to the most tragic events,
the greatest tragedy that ever befell humanity in the dis Muslim oma.
And that was the day that the prophets a lot of them departed from this world. The day the prophets alabi Salaam left this world. That was the most tragic day in human history.
Abdullah bin Mr. Ravi Allahu taala annually says that the day the prophets a lot of them left this world, it felt like the world was plunged into darkness. Though the world lost its light on that day.
And it was the most tragic thing we had ever experienced.
We were heartbroken. We thought it was the end of the world. We didn't know if there was going to be a tomorrow.
And the events of that day are so powerful for us to really understand and start to internalize how great and profound this tragedy was. The night before the profits a lot he sent and passed away. When he had made it clear that this was the end.
The family of the profits a lot of the time was gathered around him.
His wives and his cousins and his uncles and everyone was gathered around him.
And the shadow the Allahu taala, who's sitting very close to him. She says that he was so overcome with fever
that he has
A bowl of water is sitting next to him. And he would repeatedly placed his hand in the bowl of water and take water and put it on his face to cool himself off.
And he has his he had his eyes closed because it was burning his eyes. He had a very bad headache, and his eyes were burning. And so he had his eyes closed. And he couldn't speak, he didn't have the physical strength to speak. And he was lying down in bed, and we were gathered around him, and everyone was sad and distraught.
And in that particular moment,
he shattered the Allahu taala I know says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam almost on cue, he opened his eyes.
And he started to look towards the door.
And he would not break his gaze. He was just staring at the door.
And she says that we realized that there must be someone there. And so we turned around. And we saw that it was Fatima, the daughter of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the only surviving child of the prophets, Allah de Sena.
And he was looking at her and he would not break his gaze.
And I shadowed the Allahu taala Anna Anna hadith of Sahih Muslim she says, it was like the CS part. It
was like the CS pardon. Everyone moved aside and faulty about the Allahu taala Anna walked in.
And she says, remembering that moment, Fatima radi Allahu taala now was the daughter of the prophets, a lot of them, not just stating the obvious, but it was obvious that she was the daughter of the process of she looked like him.
She talked like him.
She would move her hands and gesture make gestures when she spoke just like he did. She walked the way he did physically. If you saw her, it was like you were looking at the profits a lot.
So she walks in, and she sits down next to the profits a lot. They set them. And she takes the hand off the profits, a lot of the setup.
And she starts to she said, seeing the condition of the profits a lot of a sudden. And she says Why?
Why does my father suffer so much?
And the profits, a lot of them said to her at that time, lag kerravala Abby Kiba Yo,
there will be no suffering upon your father after today.
And he calls her close and he whisper something into her ear.
And she starts to sob and cry profusely.
And then he calls her close and he whisper something else into her ear and she smiles through her tears.
And then she kisses the profits a lot. He sums and he bids her farewell and he she gets up and she leaves. And that was the last time she saw her father.
I shadowed the Allahu taala. And her says, the prophets a lot of the time of course, he passed away the next morning. I waited obviously a few days until everyone kind of had a moment to deal with this. I eventually went to Fatima.
And I asked her that what is
I eventually went to Fatima and I asked her, What did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say to you in that moment.
And she says that, when he called me close the first time he said Fatima, I am in fact dying.
I am dying.
There's no doubt. And I've known since the previous Ramadan.
Because every Ramadan gibreel would come to me. And he would review and recite the whole Quran with me once over. And this past Ramadan when God came to me, he went through the entirety of the Quran with me not once but twice. And I recognized and I realized at that moment that the end is there.
And so that was the first time I actually realized him believed that I was going to lose him. And so I started to cry.
Then when he called me close again,
he said to me, he said, however Fatima you will be the first of the family who will come and join me in the afterlife. And that made me smile. To know he said that we will be once again together as a family. Because look at the pain of Fatima. She lost her mother when she was a little girl. Then she lost her three big sisters. She had two baby brothers who passed away in infancy and now she's losing her father. So he told her very soon you will come and be with us and she passed away six months after the profits allottee so the next morning the profits will
The SIM departs from this world.
And this tragedy
occurs and befalls all the believers and the Muslims of that time. The greatest tragedy ever witnessed by mankind.
Oh matter of the Allahu taala and who is unable to deal
and internalize the fact that the prophets a lot of the time is gone. He starts walking around stomping around, say no, the prophets allowed him has not passed away. I refuse to believe this earth model of the Allahu taala and who is catatonic? He's in shock. He's not speaking, he's not responding. People are waving their hands in front of his face, and it's like he can't even see them. I lira the Allahu taala who crawled into the fetal position, and started to cry like a child cries.
This great tragedy befell. I'm biased the uncle of the prophets a lot. He was a giant man. He was tall. And he had a loud booming voice. And he started pacing back and forth and back and forth in the masjid, yelling at the top of his lungs. What are we supposed to do?
What are we supposed to do somebody tell me what we're supposed to do.
Such a tragedy.
If we look at this from a very basic human perspective,
this could have been the end of it all. This could have been the end of Islam, the end of the Omar Muhammad Sallallahu, alayhi wasallam.
This would have been the end of it all everything would have ended at this moment. Everything was over.
How do you recover from this?
But at that particular time, there was a lesson
and Abu Bakar radi Allahu taala and who
he reminded us of that lesson,
where he went and he stood up on the member of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
and he said everyone he told me to call it the a don that'll congregate to people. And Bill Allah The Allahu taala new calls to God, and people start gathering together and sitting down in the masjid much like this.
Well, matter of the Allahu taala news, the only one still walking around in circles. And Abu Bakar the Allahu taala on who he says Madeline Yama.
Allah, aka Omar, calm down or Ahmed Have a seat sit down, relax. And it's like oh my god, Allahu taala you can't even hear him. He just keeps walking around in circles stomping around
the Allahu taala and who says leave him it'll take him some time.
And then he stands on the member
and he starts reciting the book of Allah Quran.
It says watermarble hamedan ihlara Zhu.
Muhammad was only a messenger.
Got the halacha monopoly here.
Many messengers before him passed
for imata Oh, Portilla, if he dies, or even worse, is killed
in Calabar, jamala Cabo, will you turn back on your heels? Will you abandon everything that he taught you? Will you give up everything that he gave you?
Well may end up filling up the role of somebody who gives up this Deen does not hurt God does not harm God.
He only harms himself. Once he is in law, who shakeela law says we shall God shall reward those who are grateful and remember the blessings that they have remembered the gifts that they have been given.
And Abubakar amarante Allahu says when he started reciting that verse, I stopped. It's like the Quran penetrated through that, that that just the insanity and that I was experiencing how overwhelmed I was in that moment. The Quran penetrated through that. And when I heard that verse, I felt like I was hearing it for the very first time in my life.
And I sat down right where I was. And after reciting this verse, Abu Bakar, the Allahu taala on who said, manga Yabu, Muhammad and Fina who Padma
if someone used to worship Muhammad,
then that person should know and understand and realize that and pardon the directness of it. We mean no disrespect, but he was delivering a message. understand the purpose of the message. He said, Whosoever used to worship Muhammad, then that person needs to know that Muhammad is dead.
Yes, past he has left this world.
Woman Ghana yeah boo.
Law woman ganja Abu Drogba who,
and whosoever used to worship the Lord of Muhammad Allah.
Then Allah lives forever is is eternal, and he will never leave, he will never die, he will never depart.
This is a very interesting reminder, I'll give you another story that also encapsulates and represents the passing of the prophets a lot he said them and what was to be done in that moment. More I've been given one of the most dedicated students of the profits a law they set up one of the most knowledgeable of the companions. Bill halali, will harami model w German, the profits, a lot of them said the most knowledgeable amongst you about halaal versus haraam is more Benjamin
amazing companion, the prophet to Lonnie said I'm about a year or maybe even six to eight months before he passed away. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam sent him out.
He sent him to the people of Yemen,
to go there and to preach to them and teach them and lead them and guide them
to go be their leader in their email go. I have taught you for 10 years, I've given you everything that I could I trust you now I have confidence in you now go and lead those people, teach them lead them.
And when it was time for him to depart the profits a lot. He's a matter of tradition. When he was sending someone off, he himself would accompany them to the outskirts of the city.
The profit center was a very gracious person. So he's leading Where are the out of Medina.
And he's walking with Him. And they have the animal and they're walking along. And when they reach the outskirts of the city,
the prophet somebody some turns to him.
And he says, if people have an issue, if people have a problem, what will you do? How will you figure out the solution to their problem? He says aka Li Biggie tabula.
I will look in the book of Allah in the Quran and try to figure out what I'm supposed to do.
Then he says, Well, what if you don't find it in the Quran directly explicitly addressed in the Quran? What are you going to do? He said akademischen Latina v. I will look into the Sunnah of the prophet of God sallallahu alayhi wasallam and find the answer. He says what if you don't find it explicitly there for unlimited fees from nothing to be
said says i'd shut him up right? He what I do, he says that I will look at the Quran I will look at the Sunnah of the Prophet. So I will try to figure out the best solution based off of what I've learned from there, and I will work tirelessly. I will exhaust every effort that I have to find a solution to people's problems. I will do the best that I can.
And then the prophets a lot in some patted him on the chest. And he said, Alhamdulillah he led he was soccer Rasulullah rasulillah he
be my use of the rasulillah he
he says I thank God, all praises for a law for giving the correct understanding to the messenger, the representative of the Messenger of God.
The understanding that brings pleasure and confidence and joy to the Messenger of God like I thank Allah for creating people and forgiving the people that know what I want them to do.
But then the prophets a lot of them told him something
and he patted him on the chest when he said to him delight pat them on the chest Good job.
Then he said get up on the animal
and then the profits allow the some held the reins of the animal and he started walking the animal out of Medina and more I'd said I felt very awkward. So the Messenger of Allah said no, no, yeah to say he said no, no.
and he let him out. And then the profits a lot of these are over his shoulder told him he said by the way more out there's one more thing.
La Liga la tajine.
Now I like a lotta Geneva de Rajoy. He says it's very possible that when you come back to Medina, you will not find me here anymore.
And rod said my heartbroken to a million pieces.
It shattered my heart. I cried like a baby Christ.
I could not imagine life in this world without him.
But he told me at that moment, as much as I wanted to stay and I didn't want to go, he told me you have a job to do. Now go do your job.
I wipe my tears away from my face. And I set out and I did my job I did what he taught me to do. I did what he wanted me to do.
If it hasn't become clear, the point that I'm trying to drive home today, we are sitting here just with two days, three days left of the month of Ramadan.
And all of us undoubtedly have started the conversations have begun the conversations. We've all seen the Facebook posts, we've all you know, set it to one another and seeing the text messages, and the WhatsApp forwards about the sadness and the remorse and the tragedy of the departure of the month of Ramadan, the hum and the husband, the sadness and the grief at the departure of the month of Ramadan. And I'm here to say that that's not something that's inappropriate or wrong.
When the Sahaba cried, and when the Sahaba were heartbroken at the departure of the Prophet Sal setup, that was not wrong that just showed that they loved him.
We love seeing the best version of ourselves. We love fasting during the day. We love praying during the night we love spending more time with the Quran. We love all the reward and all the forgiveness and all the mercy and all the blessing of this month. And so it's very natural and it is a sign of belief to be sad at its departure. However, we cannot reduce Ramadan simply to a few cliches and platitudes. We cannot just simply talk about how excited we are for Ramadan when it comes and how sad we are when it leaves because that's what social decorum dictates
that Ramadan cannot be relegated to just simply these cliches. But what we have to understand is that yes, Ramadan came in Ramadan is going and as sad as that is and yes, we should have done more and we could have done more and we will inshallah, next time around granted Allah gives us one more we will do more.
That being said, we have a job to do. Remember what we learned during this Ramadan we learned you and I we learned that we have the ability to go 1617 hours in 100 degree weather 95 degree weather, we have the ability to go 17 hours without food and water.
We have it.
If our mind and our heart is in the right place we can do that.
We learned that we can survive off of three to four hours of sleep every day. We learned that
we learned this Ramadan that we can read so much Quran. We can read a just a day.
We learned that we can stand in prayer one hour every night.
We learned during this Ramadan that we can come to the masjid every single night for 30 nights.
We learned during this Ramadan that we can stay up all night long. In the last few nights of the month of Ramadan here we learned that
we learned that we can give a lot more charity than we thought we could give
that we can make sacrifices that we can cut corners, we learned that.
So now take that energy, take that motivation. Take that focus, take that commitment and make something of it. We need to do something with it. We can't just sit here and just you know, share a few messages about how sad we are and how sad all of this is. We need to really make an effort and channel that energy and do something with it. We got the whole world sitting up in front of us. We got so much work to do.
Lots of power to Allah is still there. The Quran will still be on our shelves today after eight.
There will still be hungry people to feed, there will still be the house of Allah that needs to be prayed in. There's still so much work that needs to be done.
And we can't stop just because Ramadan has ended. But we will continue we need to continue and we need to work harder than ever before. That's the commitment of the Sahaba that's why they weren't the people that they were they weren't the generation that they were that's what made them special. That's what sets them apart. And if we hope to ever be even a fraction of as amazing as they are, we got to overcome this hurdle. And we got to learn to take the moment and the opportunity and channel it into something amazing and make something amazing have this opportunity. barakallahu li now we're looking for another one of our anyway jambalaya to Ezekiel Hakim a southern federal law Holly
