A woman named Aisha led a group of men to a house of Ma'am where they were sick for a long time and sought permission to seek treatment or wait for cure. When they were severely sick, she gave them water and then they would try to get up to go to a different house. The deceased's son then gives a series of wishes to the deceased's son, including that he will be the first person to die and that he will be the first person to receive the right to take his right. The speaker describes the struggles of the deceased's son, including losing everything and leaving Islam, and talks about the importance of love for the messenger and the need for a true love for it.

Rasulullah

00:00:03--> 00:00:04

became sick

00:00:04--> 00:00:06

in the house of Maimun

00:00:10--> 00:00:12

And he was sick for about

00:00:12--> 00:00:14

12 to 14 days.

00:00:15--> 00:00:18

And during the sickness, when it became severe,

00:00:19--> 00:00:20

he sought permission

00:00:21--> 00:00:23

from his other wives to go

00:00:25--> 00:00:27

and seek treatment or

00:00:27--> 00:00:29

wait for cure

00:00:29--> 00:00:31

in the house of Aisha

00:00:33--> 00:00:33

So,

00:00:34--> 00:00:36

they all permitted him, they were happy for

00:00:36--> 00:00:38

that And he went to the house of

00:00:38--> 00:00:38

Aisha

00:00:41--> 00:00:41

And Rasulullah

00:00:43--> 00:00:45

became severely sick

00:00:46--> 00:00:47

to the extent

00:00:47--> 00:00:47

that

00:00:48--> 00:00:49

he developed a fever

00:00:50--> 00:00:53

and he had a severe headache.

00:00:53--> 00:00:56

And when one of the il Sahaba radiAllahu

00:00:56--> 00:00:57

anhu spoke to him,

00:00:58--> 00:00:59

he says that

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

I am being affected in a great way

00:01:06--> 00:01:08

and I am affected

00:01:08--> 00:01:09

and

00:01:09--> 00:01:13

suffer the pain of 2 of you. Meaning

00:01:13--> 00:01:15

2 of the umrah of Rasoolullah

00:01:15--> 00:01:17

SAWAYHAW SAWAYAM.

00:01:17--> 00:01:18

2

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

men's pain.

00:01:21--> 00:01:23

The pain of 2 men. That is what

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

you would suffer, Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.

00:01:26--> 00:01:30

As Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam is struggling

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

with this ailment,

00:01:34--> 00:01:34

he

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

had a severe fever.

00:01:37--> 00:01:40

So he told the people bring buckets of

00:01:40--> 00:01:42

water. 7 buckets of water.

00:01:43--> 00:01:45

And they would take this water and pour

00:01:45--> 00:01:46

it over him

00:01:46--> 00:01:49

and he would try to get up to

00:01:49--> 00:01:50

go to salah

00:01:50--> 00:01:53

and then the fever would overcome.

00:01:53--> 00:01:56

So they would throw the 2nd pail of

00:01:56--> 00:01:59

water onto Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam And

00:01:59--> 00:02:01

then he would get up to go to

00:02:01--> 00:02:03

salah and the fever would overcome, so he

00:02:03--> 00:02:05

would sit back down again.

00:02:05--> 00:02:06

And this happened

00:02:07--> 00:02:08

7 times over until

00:02:09--> 00:02:12

2 companions of Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wasallam

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

held him from each side and they took

00:02:14--> 00:02:16

him to the salah.

00:02:16--> 00:02:20

And this was the messenger sallallahu alaihi wasallam

00:02:20--> 00:02:21

with his salah

00:02:21--> 00:02:24

while he is in severe illness.

00:02:24--> 00:02:27

He's telling them pour water over me. Pour

00:02:27--> 00:02:29

water over me. Why? Because he wants to

00:02:29--> 00:02:31

go to the salah. He loves that salah.

00:02:31--> 00:02:34

He can't do without the salah. So he's

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

asking them, pour water over me. Doesn't matter.

00:02:36--> 00:02:39

I just want to feel okay enough to

00:02:39--> 00:02:39

go to salah.

00:02:40--> 00:02:42

And then he goes with the help of

00:02:42--> 00:02:44

2 men to salah, Allahu

00:02:44--> 00:02:46

Akbar. This was his relationship

00:02:46--> 00:02:47

with his salah.

00:02:49--> 00:02:49

And

00:02:50--> 00:02:53

one of the last and final messing

00:02:53--> 00:02:54

messages

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

that the messenger salallahu

00:02:56--> 00:02:59

alaihi wa sallam gave us was a salah

00:02:59--> 00:03:00

to a salah.

00:03:01--> 00:03:02

Your salah. Your salah.

00:03:03--> 00:03:05

He would tell the people, go to your

00:03:05--> 00:03:08

salah. Ensure you perform your salah. Don't lose

00:03:08--> 00:03:09

your salah.

00:03:10--> 00:03:10

And

00:03:11--> 00:03:12

when he was severely ill,

00:03:13--> 00:03:14

then he told

00:03:15--> 00:03:18

the people around him. He told Aisha

00:03:24--> 00:03:25

Let Abu Bakr

00:03:25--> 00:03:29

pray this salah. Command him to pray pray

00:03:29--> 00:03:29

this salah.

00:03:30--> 00:03:30

So

00:03:32--> 00:03:33

Aisha would say to him,

00:03:35--> 00:03:35

You Rasulullah.

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

He's a man who is very sorrowful.

00:03:39--> 00:03:41

As soon as he begins to pray, he

00:03:41--> 00:03:43

can't stand it. He can't bear

00:03:44--> 00:03:47

the sorrow that he feels and he begins

00:03:47--> 00:03:47

to cry.

00:03:48--> 00:03:50

So people can't even understand what he is

00:03:50--> 00:03:51

reading.

00:03:51--> 00:03:53

So Rasulullah Sallallahu

00:03:53--> 00:03:54

Alaihi Wasallam repeats.

00:03:59--> 00:04:02

Let Abu Bakr perform the salah. Let him

00:04:02--> 00:04:03

lead the salah.

00:04:04--> 00:04:05

So he wakes up from

00:04:06--> 00:04:08

one of the states where he was unconscious

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

and he hears Umar

00:04:12--> 00:04:13

leaving the salah.

00:04:14--> 00:04:15

So he says,

00:04:16--> 00:04:17

why is Umar

00:04:18--> 00:04:19

leading the salah?

00:04:19--> 00:04:23

Allah is not happy for anyone to leave

00:04:23--> 00:04:24

the salah, except

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

for Abu Bakr radiAllahu anhu.

00:04:27--> 00:04:27

So,

00:04:29--> 00:04:31

Aisha radiAllahu anha repeats

00:04:32--> 00:04:33

to him,

00:04:33--> 00:04:36

He is a very sorrowful man, O Messenger

00:04:36--> 00:04:37

of Allah. So he says

00:04:38--> 00:04:39

only Abu Bakr.

00:04:40--> 00:04:43

It is only Abu Bakr whom Allah is

00:04:43--> 00:04:45

happy and pleased with to lead the prayer.

00:04:48--> 00:04:51

Command Abu Bakr to perform the salah to

00:04:51--> 00:04:52

lead the salah.

00:04:52--> 00:04:54

And when Abu Bakr as Siddiq

00:04:55--> 00:04:57

who read led the salah, that is only

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

when this command stopped. That is only when

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

the messenger sallallahu alaihi wa sallam calmed down.

00:05:03--> 00:05:05

And from this we can gather that

00:05:06--> 00:05:09

we know that Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wa sallam

00:05:09--> 00:05:11

passed away after this.

00:05:11--> 00:05:14

So he was actually telling the companions that

00:05:14--> 00:05:16

after I die, the person who will be

00:05:16--> 00:05:18

the leader is Abu Bakr as Siddiq radiAllahu

00:05:19--> 00:05:20

anhu because he was the leader

00:05:21--> 00:05:21

during

00:05:22--> 00:05:25

of the prayer, during the lifetime of Rasulullah

00:05:25--> 00:05:28

salallahu alayhi wa sallam. So clearly after he

00:05:28--> 00:05:30

passes on, who is going to be the

00:05:30--> 00:05:31

caliph? Rasulullah

00:05:32--> 00:05:33

I mean Abu Bakr Siddiq

00:05:36--> 00:05:38

And his daughter visits visits him.

00:05:41--> 00:05:45

Fatima radiAllahu anha. The only child left of

00:05:45--> 00:05:45

Rasulullah

00:05:47--> 00:05:51

She visits him. And Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam

00:05:51--> 00:05:52

had a habit

00:05:52--> 00:05:54

where he would get up,

00:05:54--> 00:05:56

and he would greet Fatima

00:05:57--> 00:06:00

and he would make her sit in the

00:06:00--> 00:06:02

position that he was sitting in.

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

So that day, he could not get up.

00:06:06--> 00:06:08

He was severely ill. So she cried

00:06:09--> 00:06:10

and he cried.

00:06:11--> 00:06:13

And then he brought her closer

00:06:14--> 00:06:15

and he says,

00:06:15--> 00:06:16

Fatima,

00:06:17--> 00:06:19

I want to tell you that this is

00:06:19--> 00:06:19

the

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

sickness

00:06:22--> 00:06:23

that I am going to die in.

00:06:24--> 00:06:27

So she began to cry and she began

00:06:27--> 00:06:27

to weep.

00:06:28--> 00:06:31

And then, she began to laugh. So

00:06:32--> 00:06:34

Aisha is confused. What is happening here?

00:06:35--> 00:06:38

And the second message was, I give you

00:06:38--> 00:06:40

glad tidings. You are going to be the

00:06:40--> 00:06:42

first person to meet me

00:06:43--> 00:06:44

after my death.

00:06:45--> 00:06:47

That means you are going to die next.

00:06:47--> 00:06:49

So she became happy with this.

00:06:49--> 00:06:51

And Aisha says

00:06:53--> 00:06:55

that there were about 7

00:06:55--> 00:06:56

7

00:06:56--> 00:06:58

gold coins that the messenger

00:07:00--> 00:07:01

had in the house.

00:07:01--> 00:07:02

So he tells Aisha

00:07:07--> 00:07:10

What happened to these 7 gold coins?

00:07:11--> 00:07:13

So she says, they are with me. So

00:07:13--> 00:07:16

the messenger sallallahu alaihi wa sallam says, give

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

them out.

00:07:17--> 00:07:19

Give them out in sadaqah. It is not

00:07:19--> 00:07:22

suitable for a nabi of Allah subhanahu wa

00:07:22--> 00:07:24

ta'ala to pass away while he has anything

00:07:24--> 00:07:26

of this dunya left with him.

00:07:26--> 00:07:28

So he tells Aisha

00:07:29--> 00:07:29

give it out.

00:07:31--> 00:07:33

And he falls into unconsciousness.

00:07:34--> 00:07:35

And when he wakes up he says

00:07:37--> 00:07:40

What happened to those 7 gold coins? So

00:07:40--> 00:07:42

she says they are still with me, oh

00:07:42--> 00:07:44

messenger of Allah. So

00:07:44--> 00:07:46

he says that do you want me to

00:07:46--> 00:07:47

be questioned with

00:07:49--> 00:07:51

about those gold coins? Give them out.

00:07:53--> 00:07:54

Give them out.

00:07:54--> 00:07:56

And then she gives them out and when

00:07:56--> 00:07:57

he wakes up from his

00:07:58--> 00:07:59

unconsciousness,

00:08:00--> 00:08:04

he says, what happened to those 7 gold

00:08:04--> 00:08:06

coins? And she says, I gave them out

00:08:06--> 00:08:07

messenger of Allah. And he

00:08:10--> 00:08:10

says,

00:08:11--> 00:08:14

We the messengers of Allah, we don't leave

00:08:14--> 00:08:15

behind an inheritance

00:08:15--> 00:08:19

because the inheritance of Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wa

00:08:19--> 00:08:19

sallam

00:08:20--> 00:08:21

was none other than

00:08:21--> 00:08:22

the salah

00:08:23--> 00:08:23

and the Quran

00:08:24--> 00:08:25

and the word of Allah

00:08:27--> 00:08:29

and the remembrance of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala.

00:08:30--> 00:08:31

And all of the sharia

00:08:32--> 00:08:34

that was the inheritance of

00:08:34--> 00:08:35

the

00:08:36--> 00:08:40

That was the inheritance of Rasulullah salallahu alayhi

00:08:40--> 00:08:43

He left behind the Quran and salah and

00:08:43--> 00:08:44

remembrance of Allah

00:08:46--> 00:08:49

He did not leave behind any wealth in

00:08:49--> 00:08:50

terms of this dunya.

00:08:51--> 00:08:52

And then,

00:08:52--> 00:08:53

at one of these salawats,

00:08:54--> 00:08:56

Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam,

00:08:57--> 00:08:59

he stands up after the salah

00:08:59--> 00:09:01

and he goes up onto the mimbar

00:09:01--> 00:09:04

and he makes an announcement. Any one whom

00:09:04--> 00:09:07

I have harmed during my lifetime, let him

00:09:07--> 00:09:09

come and take his share

00:09:09--> 00:09:11

and take his right today.

00:09:11--> 00:09:14

Anyone whom I have backbitten, let him come

00:09:14--> 00:09:17

take his right today. Anyone whom I have

00:09:17--> 00:09:20

done anything to in this world, let him

00:09:20--> 00:09:22

come and take his rights today.

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

And none of the companions stand up except

00:09:26--> 00:09:26

for 1.

00:09:29--> 00:09:31

Was a iman who was known to be

00:09:31--> 00:09:32

close to Allah

00:09:34--> 00:09:36

He was known to have a good relationship

00:09:36--> 00:09:37

with

00:09:38--> 00:09:40

Allah and he stands up and he says,

00:09:42--> 00:09:43

I want to come and take my right

00:09:43--> 00:09:44

from you, O Messenger

00:09:46--> 00:09:46

salallahu

00:09:47--> 00:09:48

alaihi wa sallam.

00:09:48--> 00:09:50

So he comes forward

00:09:50--> 00:09:53

and he says so Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wa

00:09:53--> 00:09:55

sallam asks him, what right do you want

00:09:55--> 00:09:57

to take from me o urkasha?

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

And he says, on the day of badr,

00:09:59--> 00:10:01

when you were straightening the rose.

00:10:02--> 00:10:04

Listen to this. When you were straightening the

00:10:04--> 00:10:04

rose,

00:10:05--> 00:10:08

you took the stick and you pushed me

00:10:08--> 00:10:10

back with that stick, oh messenger of Allah.

00:10:10--> 00:10:12

I want my right for that day.

00:10:13--> 00:10:15

And he takes a stick that is there

00:10:15--> 00:10:18

with the companions and Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wa

00:10:18--> 00:10:21

sallam stands up with all of his illness

00:10:21--> 00:10:23

and he says, come. Take your right from

00:10:23--> 00:10:25

me. And he says, but on that day,

00:10:26--> 00:10:28

you my chest was open, oh messenger of

00:10:28--> 00:10:31

Allah. So open up your chest. So he

00:10:31--> 00:10:33

opens up his chest, the messenger of Allah

00:10:33--> 00:10:35

sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:11:05--> 00:11:07

So he opens up his chest

00:11:08--> 00:11:10

and Okasha goes to him,

00:11:12--> 00:11:14

and he hugs the messenger of Allah

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

He places his head

00:11:19--> 00:11:20

in the chest of Rasoolullah

00:11:23--> 00:11:25

and he hugs the messenger

00:11:38--> 00:11:39

And Rasulullah

00:11:40--> 00:11:42

goes back to his home,

00:11:45--> 00:11:47

And his illness becomes severe

00:11:48--> 00:11:50

and it becomes difficult.

00:11:50--> 00:11:51

And

00:11:51--> 00:11:52

Ayesha

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

says he had a cloth that he would

00:11:55--> 00:11:55

take.

00:11:56--> 00:11:59

And he would wipe that cloth over his

00:11:59--> 00:12:02

head, place it in water, wring the water

00:12:02--> 00:12:03

out of it, and then wipe it over

00:12:03--> 00:12:04

his head.

00:12:05--> 00:12:06

And

00:12:08--> 00:12:09

she says that,

00:12:10--> 00:12:10

then

00:12:11--> 00:12:11

he

00:12:12--> 00:12:14

he he saw Abdurrahman

00:12:14--> 00:12:16

enter into the house. Abdurrahman was

00:12:17--> 00:12:18

the brother of Aisha

00:12:21--> 00:12:23

He saw Abdulrahman enter into the house, and

00:12:23--> 00:12:24

he says,

00:12:25--> 00:12:27

in fact, he saw that he had a

00:12:27--> 00:12:28

seawark in his mouth.

00:12:29--> 00:12:31

So he began to look at it with

00:12:31--> 00:12:34

a longing look as though he would love

00:12:34--> 00:12:35

to have that siwak.

00:12:35--> 00:12:36

So Aisha tells

00:12:37--> 00:12:38

him

00:12:40--> 00:12:42

that give that seawark to Rasulullah

00:12:43--> 00:12:43

So

00:12:44--> 00:12:46

he takes it and he begins to,

00:12:46--> 00:12:49

you know, do the that which we know

00:12:49--> 00:12:50

as the taswiq,

00:12:50--> 00:12:52

cleaning his teeth.

00:12:52--> 00:12:54

And this is how beloved

00:12:54--> 00:12:57

this was to Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:12:57--> 00:13:00

As he is passing away, he actually says

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

that

00:13:03--> 00:13:05

If it was not for me to be

00:13:06--> 00:13:07

to become

00:13:07--> 00:13:09

difficult and hard upon

00:13:11--> 00:13:12

my

00:13:13--> 00:13:17

I would have commanded them to perform the

00:13:17--> 00:13:20

taswiq and clean their teeth teeth at every

00:13:20--> 00:13:20

salah.

00:13:21--> 00:13:23

So the messenger salallahu alaihi wa sallam cleans

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

his teeth.

00:13:24--> 00:13:25

And there he

00:13:26--> 00:13:27

is uttering words,

00:13:28--> 00:13:29

saying something.

00:13:29--> 00:13:30

And Aisha

00:13:31--> 00:13:33

says I draw close and I hear him

00:13:33--> 00:13:33

saying

00:13:40--> 00:13:43

Indeed death has its pangs. Indeed death has

00:13:43--> 00:13:44

its pangs.

00:13:46--> 00:13:49

There is no God worthy of worship besides

00:13:49--> 00:13:50

Allah.

00:13:51--> 00:13:52

And he says, indeed

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

death has its pangs.

00:13:55--> 00:13:58

And he says no but rather I choose

00:13:58--> 00:14:00

Allah. I choose the higher companion.

00:14:06--> 00:14:09

I'm choosing Allah. I want to go to

00:14:09--> 00:14:12

Allah. I'm tired. I'm done with this dunya.

00:14:12--> 00:14:13

It's over. And I want to go to

00:14:13--> 00:14:14

Allah

00:14:15--> 00:14:17

What's one of the statements that he is

00:14:17--> 00:14:18

making?

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

Indeed death has its pangs.

00:14:23--> 00:14:25

And what is the other statement?

00:14:25--> 00:14:26

He is saying,

00:14:26--> 00:14:28

but I choose Allah

00:14:29--> 00:14:32

It is difficult to leave this world.

00:14:32--> 00:14:35

Death has its pangs. There is a pain

00:14:35--> 00:14:36

to death but I choose Allah.

00:14:42--> 00:14:44

Death is a door and every person shall

00:14:44--> 00:14:45

enter that door.

00:14:46--> 00:14:47

And then,

00:14:48--> 00:14:49

he utters the

00:14:50--> 00:14:51

ayah.

00:15:03--> 00:15:06

So they are the ones who are with

00:15:06--> 00:15:09

those whom Allah has favored and placed his

00:15:09--> 00:15:11

bounty upon. The and

00:15:12--> 00:15:12

the and

00:15:13--> 00:15:14

the

00:15:17--> 00:15:19

and those are the best of companions

00:15:20--> 00:15:21

and he can he

00:15:22--> 00:15:23

breathes his last

00:15:25--> 00:15:27

and he goes to Allahar Abu alizati wal

00:15:27--> 00:15:28

jalal.

00:15:28--> 00:15:31

And this was the last of the Messenger

00:15:31--> 00:15:32

Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.

00:15:33--> 00:15:33

Sallallahu

00:15:34--> 00:15:36

Alaihi Wasallam He passed away

00:15:36--> 00:15:37

and he left this world.

00:15:40--> 00:15:41

And Allah tells us,

00:15:45--> 00:15:48

You are to die, O Messenger of Allah.

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

And they are to die as well. Every

00:15:50--> 00:15:53

single one of us will die one day

00:15:53--> 00:15:56

in the manner manner that Rasulullah salallahu alaihi

00:15:56--> 00:15:58

wa sallam passed away. Why? Because

00:15:58--> 00:16:00

he was a human being and we are

00:16:00--> 00:16:02

human beings as well. Except that he was

00:16:02--> 00:16:04

the best of creation

00:16:04--> 00:16:05

and he was

00:16:05--> 00:16:07

the one who was most beloved to Allah

00:16:09--> 00:16:11

So his soul goes to Allah

00:16:13--> 00:16:14

And if death

00:16:15--> 00:16:16

was something that

00:16:17--> 00:16:18

was a bad thing

00:16:18--> 00:16:21

and it was an evil thing, then Rasulullah

00:16:23--> 00:16:25

wa sallam would have not tasted from that

00:16:25--> 00:16:26

cup of death.

00:16:26--> 00:16:30

But this death can be a beautiful thing.

00:16:33--> 00:16:35

The one who loves to meet Allah, Allah

00:16:35--> 00:16:38

loves to meet him. Prepare to meet

00:16:40--> 00:16:41

Allah and you will love to meet Allah

00:16:41--> 00:16:45

Subhanahu wa ta'ala. Perfect your salah. Improve your

00:16:45--> 00:16:48

relationship with Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala and you

00:16:48--> 00:16:50

will look forward to the day that you

00:16:50--> 00:16:50

meet

00:16:51--> 00:16:51

Allah

00:16:53--> 00:16:53

hoping

00:16:54--> 00:16:56

that you will be uttering the words that

00:16:56--> 00:16:59

Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam uttered as he

00:16:59--> 00:17:00

passed away.

00:17:02--> 00:17:04

There is no God worthy of worship

00:17:05--> 00:17:05

except Allah

00:17:11--> 00:17:13

The one whose last words

00:17:15--> 00:17:15

he has entered

00:17:16--> 00:17:18

into Jannah. Why? Because he lived his life

00:17:18--> 00:17:19

with that standard.

00:17:21--> 00:17:23

After wahid and shahada

00:17:23--> 00:17:24

and belief in

00:17:25--> 00:17:26

Allah

00:17:26--> 00:17:27

The companions

00:17:29--> 00:17:30

are shocked

00:17:30--> 00:17:33

by the passing of the messenger sallallahu alaihi

00:17:33--> 00:17:35

wa sallam. Umarun al Khattab

00:17:36--> 00:17:38

he stands up and he says, anyone who

00:17:38--> 00:17:41

says that Muhammad has died I'm going to

00:17:41--> 00:17:43

strike his neck. I'll kill him. He has

00:17:43--> 00:17:44

gone and left

00:17:45--> 00:17:47

us in the manner that Musa left his

00:17:47--> 00:17:49

people for 40 days and he will come

00:17:49--> 00:17:50

back.

00:17:51--> 00:17:53

So when Abu Bakr al Asadeek

00:17:54--> 00:17:56

hears about the passing of

00:17:57--> 00:18:00

Rasulullah he comes and he enters into the

00:18:00--> 00:18:02

home. And he sees the messenger

00:18:03--> 00:18:06

lying there. So he goes to

00:18:06--> 00:18:07

him and he says,

00:18:11--> 00:18:12

You are

00:18:12--> 00:18:13

beautiful

00:18:13--> 00:18:14

in life

00:18:14--> 00:18:18

and beautiful in death. Good in life and

00:18:18--> 00:18:20

good in death, O Messenger of Allah. Sallallahu

00:18:21--> 00:18:23

alaihi wa sallam. And then he comes out

00:18:23--> 00:18:25

to the people and he goes up onto

00:18:25--> 00:18:27

the mibbar and he says,

00:18:31--> 00:18:34

The one who was worshipping Muhammad. Muhammad has

00:18:34--> 00:18:35

passed away.

00:18:39--> 00:18:41

And the one who was worshipping Allah,

00:18:42--> 00:18:44

Allah is ever alive and he does not

00:18:44--> 00:18:45

die. And then

00:18:46--> 00:18:48

Umar ibn Khattab falls

00:18:49--> 00:18:52

to his knees and he bursts into tears

00:18:52--> 00:18:53

saying,

00:18:53--> 00:18:56

I could not believe these words but they

00:18:56--> 00:18:59

were so true. Abu Bakr as Siddiq radiAllahu

00:18:59--> 00:19:00

anhu says,

00:19:16--> 00:19:19

And Muhammad is none but a messenger of

00:19:19--> 00:19:20

Allah

00:19:21--> 00:19:23

If he is to die

00:19:24--> 00:19:26

and he is to be killed, then

00:19:27--> 00:19:30

will you turn against your heels and leave

00:19:31--> 00:19:33

Allah Will you leave Islam?

00:19:33--> 00:19:35

So he says, it is as though I

00:19:35--> 00:19:38

am hearing this verse for the first time

00:19:38--> 00:19:40

in my life. And I can't believe

00:19:40--> 00:19:42

that I'm hearing this verse.

00:19:43--> 00:19:45

And he falls to his knees and he

00:19:45--> 00:19:48

accepts that this is the truth. And this

00:19:48--> 00:19:49

was the nature of Umar

00:19:50--> 00:19:53

when he heard the truth as much as

00:19:53--> 00:19:55

his feelings were, he would accept it. If

00:19:55--> 00:19:57

he felt like I don't want to accept

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

this. I don't want to believe it.

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

He would still accept it. Why? Because

00:20:04--> 00:20:05

Allah said something here.

00:20:07--> 00:20:10

He would stop at the boundary of Allah

00:20:11--> 00:20:13

Here was the boundary of Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:20:13--> 00:20:16

Ta'ala. He knew I can't say anything anymore.

00:20:16--> 00:20:18

There is clear evidence that this has happened.

00:20:19--> 00:20:22

It is over. I surrender. But this affected

00:20:22--> 00:20:23

the companions

00:20:25--> 00:20:27

in a great way. Uthman

00:20:29--> 00:20:31

would pass by as Zubayr and Talha, and

00:20:31--> 00:20:34

he would not reply reply to their salam.

00:20:34--> 00:20:36

So when he was asked why are you

00:20:36--> 00:20:38

not replying to their salam? He says did

00:20:38--> 00:20:40

they even greet me? He was in

00:20:40--> 00:20:42

a stupor. He couldn't imagine

00:20:43--> 00:20:46

the death of Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:20:46--> 00:20:50

Abdullah ibn Unais radiAllahu anhu 3 days later,

00:20:50--> 00:20:53

he was fine. He was okay. 3 days

00:20:53--> 00:20:55

later, he passed away. The companions

00:20:56--> 00:20:59

say it is as though he melted away.

00:20:59--> 00:21:02

It is as though he melted away. Within

00:21:02--> 00:21:05

3 days, he passed away. Why? Because they

00:21:05--> 00:21:07

loved the Messenger Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.

00:21:09--> 00:21:09

We

00:21:10--> 00:21:13

we claim to love Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa

00:21:13--> 00:21:13

sallam,

00:21:14--> 00:21:16

but these were people who loved the Messenger

00:21:16--> 00:21:19

sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. They couldn't imagine

00:21:21--> 00:21:22

life

00:21:22--> 00:21:23

without the messenger

00:21:28--> 00:21:29

And that is how we should love the

00:21:29--> 00:21:30

messenger.

00:21:32--> 00:21:34

To the extent that we know,

00:21:34--> 00:21:36

we would run the tide.

00:21:36--> 00:21:38

We would give our lives. We would give

00:21:38--> 00:21:41

our families. We would give everything. Our wealth

00:21:41--> 00:21:44

and everything we have before anything happens to

00:21:44--> 00:21:44

the messenger

00:21:46--> 00:21:47

This was the attitude

00:21:47--> 00:21:48

of the companions

00:21:49--> 00:21:50

What would they say?

00:21:52--> 00:21:55

Take my mother, take my father, oh messenger

00:21:55--> 00:21:57

of Allah. It doesn't matter who it is,

00:21:57--> 00:21:59

doesn't matter what it is. I'm ready to

00:21:59--> 00:22:01

sacrifice it for you.

00:22:01--> 00:22:04

Oh Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wasallam.

00:22:04--> 00:22:06

This became clear in the battles.

00:22:07--> 00:22:10

Their love for the messenger sallallahu alaihi wasallam.

00:22:10--> 00:22:13

They would stand up and put themselves between

00:22:13--> 00:22:14

the arrows

00:22:14--> 00:22:17

and rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. Between the

00:22:17--> 00:22:18

spears

00:22:20--> 00:22:21

and rasulullah salallahu alaihi wa sallam between these

00:22:21--> 00:22:24

swords and rasulullah salallahu alaihi wa sallam. Why?

00:22:24--> 00:22:27

Because they knew that we love this messenger.

00:22:35--> 00:22:38

Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. He passed away. He's

00:22:38--> 00:22:40

gone. But the message is clear from Abu

00:22:40--> 00:22:42

Bakr as Siddiq radiAllahu anhu.

00:22:43--> 00:22:46

In the Muhammad al Qadmaz, Muhammad has passed

00:23:04--> 00:23:05

Say, if you love me,

00:23:06--> 00:23:09

then follow me. Allah will love you.

00:23:11--> 00:23:12

Say, if you love Allah

00:23:13--> 00:23:14

then follow me. You love Allah

00:23:16--> 00:23:17

we will claim to love Allah

00:23:19--> 00:23:20

Follow the Messenger

00:23:22--> 00:23:24

Allah will love you and He will forgive

00:23:24--> 00:23:27

you your sins. So it is easy for

00:23:27--> 00:23:29

us to make claims, my dear brothers and

00:23:29--> 00:23:31

sisters in Islam. I love Allah.

00:23:31--> 00:23:33

I love his messenger. But

00:23:33--> 00:23:35

for us to worship

00:23:37--> 00:23:39

Allah and to prepare for our meeting with

00:23:39--> 00:23:41

him and to follow the messenger

00:23:44--> 00:23:45

that is a true judge

00:23:46--> 00:23:49

of our love of Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wasalam.

00:23:49--> 00:23:51

messenger salallahu alayhi wasalam.

00:23:49--> 00:23:51

messenger salallahu alayhi wasalam.
