11 years after the prophets Allah Allahu Allah who has symptoms of migration to the city of Medina.

00:00:06--> 00:00:21

The Companions were now at the cusp of the most difficult tragedy they had ever experienced and would ever live to experience a tragedy that would dwarf all other previous catastrophes. It was the darkest day in human history, the day of the death

00:00:22--> 00:01:02

of humanity's Prophet and Savior, the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had paid back his debts, he delivered his Farewell Sermon, he taken one final glance at his companions from behind the curtain as they stood in prayer. And the companions were overjoyed. They hope that the Oh horrific thought of losing the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had had departed. They didn't know that this was to be their very final glance at the beautiful and radiant face of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during this lifetime, for he would not live to witness the next prayer. He then drew the cartoon.

00:01:03--> 00:01:06

And he went to place his head now on the chest of our mother Isha.

00:01:08--> 00:01:12

And the pangs of death began to escalate, and eventually he lost his ability to move.

00:01:13--> 00:01:44

And finally, after much suffering, he raised his head and pointed towards the ceiling of his home and he said, Oh Allah with the highest companion. Oh Allah with the highest companion and our mother I Isha understood that at that moment, he was being given the choice by the angel of death, between remaining with us, as his followers, until the day of judgment, or dying and going back to Allah, as he said, he was not choosing us.

00:01:45--> 00:02:25

Those were his last words, before his request was finally granted. And as the last breath, gracefully escaped to the prophets, lips, a hushed stillness descended upon the scene as if the very Universe had held its breath in reverence. His hand dropped, and his head suddenly became heavy, and the angel of death had just claimed the pure soul that he had ever claimed and will ever claim on the Monday 12 Overbey on a well, in the 11th year of the hijra, at the age of 63 years old and four days the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam returned to his Lord or in early life, or in

00:03:01--> 00:03:43

News of the dark catastrophe spread like wildfire within Medina, the companions had temporarily lost all sense of reality, comprehension. What had just occurred was beyond imagination. The Masjid erupted with tremendous weeping and shouting, oh Mara, the Allahu Anhu stood up and declared there are there are some hypocrites out there who claim that the Messenger of Allah has died. No, he has not died. He has simply gone to Allah, the same way that Prophet Musa Moses went to Allah for 40 days and he's going to come back and he's going to cut off their hands and the feet of those who say that he passed away

00:03:45--> 00:04:19

Subhan Allah is the nature of human beings at times when huge calamities befall them. And I asked you do you know of a calamity that was greater than this? Do you know of a people who love their leader more than the Companions love theirs? Indeed, the companions were paralyzed by grief. The OMA was on the verge of collapse in utter sorrow and dismay. The Muslims were at this moment in time in dire need of a Savior who would guide them through this catastrophe and gather their ranks once again. The Savior

00:04:20--> 00:04:28

would be none other than the companion dearest to the heart of the messengers of Allah Allah He was a companion was Abu Bakr

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

Abu Bakr had previously asked permission from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to visit his home in the area called a Sunni in the upper parts of Medina. But after news reached him of the disaster, He hurriedly returned and he entered the masjid the mosque and he witnessed these huge crowds of companions in a state of shock and weeping and utter crumbling. And he saw Omar addressing the crowds in his way of what Becca didn't utter a word he needed first to verify them.

00:05:00--> 00:05:06

Use, he passed through the congregation until he reached the door of our issues apartment.

00:05:07--> 00:05:13

The silence of the prophets room was broken by the gentle entry of Abu Bakr

00:05:14--> 00:05:31

and he opened the door, and his eyes fell upon his guide, but his teacher upon his best friend, still, as he had never seen him before, and covered with the shroud, the news, the dark news was true. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had died,

00:05:33--> 00:05:49

and Rebecca fell to his knees and he gently uncovered the shroud from the messengers face, and he took one final glance at the most beautiful of creation, and their Abubaker he cried over him, and his tears mingled with all and he kissed him, and he said, be happy until only

00:06:11--> 00:06:15

This moment mark the beginning of Abu Bakr has colossal task

00:06:16--> 00:06:52

behind the walls of his daughter's apartment, were wounded crowds reeling in devastation. Abu Bakr first made his way to Omar and tried to silence him but failed. And as a result of Rebecca, let him be and he turned to the devastated crowds and he said to them, Allah man can a Abu Mohammed and for in number 100 and Udmurt woman can a Abu Lucha in Allah how you lie about whoever have you used to worship Mohamed Salah Allah has sent and then I am telling you now Mohammed has just died.

00:06:53--> 00:07:12

But whoever used to worship Allah that I am telling you Allah is Ever Living and he will never die. And then he reminded them of a verse from the Quran he recited in Nicoma you don't we're in the Houma you don't you Oh messenger of Allah shall die, and they shall die.

00:07:13--> 00:07:55

And he recited the verse from the Quran Wa Mohammed on Illa rasuluh the harlot communicability Russian Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is no more than a messenger, and indeed many messengers before he passed away, FM imata our CO T Lang collaborative Allah kabhi calm.

00:07:57--> 00:07:57

Now you know,

00:07:59--> 00:08:45

how Allah Almighty inspired Abu Bakr in this moment, with this type of steadfastness and wisdom and recollection of these evidences, this is the knowledge of Allah and his choosing. The companions had heard these verses many times before, but it was as if it was the first time they had ever heard it. One by one, they began to repeat the verses. The entire congregation were now reciting the verses of Abeka. They realized it was true, or what he said, I swear by Allah. As soon as I heard Abubakar say it, I fell down to the ground. I felt as if my legs were unable to carry me. I collapsed when I heard him say it and only then did I realize that the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam had

00:08:45--> 00:08:46

really died.

00:08:47--> 00:08:49

During this traumatic episode.

00:08:50--> 00:09:18

Allah Almighty showered upon Abubaker phenomenal stability, composure, steadfastness that he would use to hold together the community of Muslims, which had at this moment, plummeted into misery and dismay, through email and through leadership. Through years of walking in the footsteps of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Abubaker was able to carry a much wounded community on his shoulders and deliver them to the shores of safety.

00:09:19--> 00:09:30

Through this hardship, Allah Almighty had sent a clear message to their companions that the one who leads you during this difficult time is the one who shall lead you after it as well.
