An in depth lesson within the Noble Qur’an,”Life of the Last Messenger (Muhammad PBUH)” by Mufti Ismail Musa Menk
Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa
nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa
All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala
complete blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household as well as all his companions, may Allah bless them all. And all those who have struggled and strive to learn the deen protect it in a way that it has today come to us they passed it on May Allah make us from those who can pass it on as well. And may Allah accept us in May he include us in the prayers of those to come, who will remember those who have served the deen protected it and conveyed it to others. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to open our doors. We have just completed the recitation of the Quran. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us every form of acceptance on
this Eve. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to accept every letter we have read, and to grant us every single one of us ease in the difficulties we have, everyone has different difficulties, and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows them before we utter them. I mean, yesterday we spoke about the farewell hatch. And we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the ability to come back this evening and to continue. So here we are speaking We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless us all.
We had made mention of when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in alpha.
When he was in alpha, it was a Friday, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
gave a lecture, he gave several lectures, what were known as the kotoba on the day of alpha, the autobahn The following day, and the footbaww, the following day, three days in a row. And whenever he had had the opportunity, he kept repeating certain words, the lectures were more or less similar. What I will do for you today is we will make mention of the points or some of the points of these lectures, not necessarily just the one on arafa. But even the ones that happen the following day and the following day, which we're all on the same topic. And as I have said moments ago, he repeated the words again and again. Firstly, he asked his companions on the day of nap, what day is it today?
They were thinking perhaps he is going to give it a different name. And two, he said, Is this not the sacred day? The day of nap? He responded Yes. Or they responded Yes. Is this not the sacred month? Yes. Are we not in the sacred city? Yes. Well, you should know that your wealth and your lives, as well as your honor and dignity amongst yourself is all sacred, just as the sacredness of this day, in this month in this city, as Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted it. So remember the status that we have among one another, our lives are sacred.
Our wealth is not supposed to be usurped.
And our honor and dignity all this is granted the status by Allah subhanho wa Taala. No one is to harm the other in any way. This was the bottom line of the message or that particular statement. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us goodness, then he says
everything that was laid out in the pagan era is now thrown under my feet, it is cancelled, null and void. All the evil that was happening is null and void, thrown under my feet gone for good. We have opened a new era and a new chapter of goodness and of piety, of worship of Allah alone without any idols without any association of partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then he included in that the issue of interest known as Riba, he says the interest is all canceled and it is bad and abomination the handiwork of the devil, it shall not be repeated and we will not be engaged in it as believers From this day on it is deleted and canceled. And any of you who have any dealings of interest it is
dropped. And what you are owed is only your capital. And he went on to say even from my own family, those who are owed monies, I am telling the rest of you that any interest amount is completely canceled. What is old is only the capital May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us the ability to surrender to this. This was the message in the farewell pilgrimage and we had said the reason why it is called a farewell book
creamy cheese because it was the only Hajj and yet it is there where he greeted the people and he told him perhaps I will not meet you after this. So he bid farewell to them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson.
Thereafter he spoke about the way they used to kill one another and he says blood is sacred. In one generation, he says it is higher than the status of the Kaaba in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, to kill one another to harm one another is very dangerous. And he continued to say, people have been killing one another. For no reason that is all gone under my feet, we will never engage in that type of pagan behavior after this day. Then he continued to say fear Allah fear Allah be conscious of Allah regarding your women. Be careful how you treat your women. This was the advice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in the last year, which means in this way, well,
pilgrimage, he is giving advice saying, Be careful how you treat your women. Be careful about women, you have taken them with the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. your spouse's your wives he's speaking about here. He says you took them with the name of Allah. Be careful. Who are they? I'd like to pause for a moment and take us all back. Or should I say take us all to our own wives. They are the daughters of people. They also have their family members. They have left everything in order to come to us.
How can we then oppress them? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warns us about oppressing women. And that having been said today we have a new type of a problem where women are oppressing men. May Allah grant us ease. And this is reality. We need to remind the sisters as well. make life easy for your husbands not difficult. Allah has put you as a gift. So live your life as a gift. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the coolness of our eyes in our spouses, male and female, and May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those who can fulfill our rights and even beyond our rights. May He make us from those who can give even much more May Allah grant us through His mercy. Then the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warns the believers he says lethargy roba de kasarani Audrey ba ba, ba ba ba. Do not turn after me to disbelief by fighting and killing one another. Don't do that. Do not harm one another. Do not fight one another. Remember you are brothers you are believers, you are to be like one body. If the head is aching, the entire body is restless. If a small organ is painting, the entire body is restless. This is the example of the Omar Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he continues to give advice. He says,
in fact, a verse was revealed. That verse was recited by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this verse made me
cry. What was the verse?
tuna comme de Nakhon?
Mati walby Tula como Islam Medina, this day I have perfected your religion. And this day I have completed my gift upon you, Allah is telling us and I have chosen Islam as your deen you will submit to my commands. The meaning of Islam is submission, we submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala may forgive our shortcomings. May He make us from those who worship Him alone. When this verse was revealed? Allah one began to cry, they asked him why are you crying? He says when anything gets to its peak, after that there is only coming down which means we perhaps may lose Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah Subhana Allah grant us the ability to understand that he lives in our midst, in his
example, and he lives in our midst in his teachings, and we need to follow that example in order to gain his intercession on the day of piano.
So thereafter, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told the people who are there
those who are present who have heard me convey the message to those who are absent sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he asked them have I conveyed the message? They said, yes, you have. Have I conveyed the message. Yes, you have. Have I conveyed the message. Yes, you have. He raised his eyes to the sky saying Allah, Masha, Allah bear witness that I have conveyed the message not only conveyed the message, but they have heard it and they bear witness that I have conveyed the message. sallallahu alayhi wasallam beloved brothers and sisters, where are we and where is the message? What law it has come to us what law he he fulfilled his mission? What law he he definitely did the best job possible
We have it in our midst. We know exactly what he has said. We have studies of his entire life, the way he blinked his eyes. how handsome he was, how broad chested he was, how he was neither too tall. nor was he too short. how those who looked at him loved him automatically how his perspiration smelled better than any musk or amber that was there. How his hand was softer than anything else felt by those who shook it. SubhanAllah we've heard of everything. We know his description. We know what he brought, we know what he taught. Why do we then pay lip service alone to saying we love him yet? We our deeds are on another mountain altogether. And his teachings are on a separate mountain.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. This is why we have days like this in order to reflect to ponder here is the man we love him. It is part of our declaration of faith to add his name into a Chateau La ilaha illAllah Muhammad and Abu rasuluh I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship besides Allah. And I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his final messenger and prophet Subhana Allah, we utter those words in order to declare our faith. And yet we still involve in interest. We still let the nightclubs we still in the casinos, we still cannot leave adultery, we cannot give up that which is a disgrace, not only to ourselves to the oma at
large, may Allah subhanho wa Taala strengthen us. Sometimes we cannot dress appropriately to save our lives. And yet here is the messenger the sacrifice they made,
how much they went through the lives that will last in order for the message to get to us. And still we cannot cover our hair, the sisters, and still we cannot wear clothing that is loose brothers and sisters. Remember, the issue of clothing is not only for the women? Yes, it is for the men as well. We need to make sure that our clothes are not tight fitting, we need to make sure that we do not fall into the trap of those who want to take us away from the dean by making us where our jeans halfway down our backsides May Allah protect us. This is the trend of today we are muslimeen the messenger suffered in order to get this message across to us. How could we ever claim to love him
and where that which will displease Allah subhanho wa Taala so my beloved sister promised Allah to dress appropriately, it does not take much.
In fact, you stand a better chance to enter Paradise. May Allah grant us all paradise. May Allah forgive our sins. mela opened our doors. It's an emotional moment when we speak of the last words of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to think, where are we? And where was the message? Allah forgive us, Allah if you are shy to adopt what he has taught because of people. Remember, those people will never come in your grave with you.
If you are shy to adopt what he taught, because of people, those people will never be able to help you on the Day of Judgment. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the intercession of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Thereafter, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam delivered the lecture. And he read for NASA. And after that, he went close to what we know today is Jebel Rama. He did not climb the mount at all, but just near the Mount, he faced the Qibla. And he made and he prayed, and he supplicated for a long time, until the sun set whilst he was in alpha. And he may do alpha, his oma and as we know his nation, most dear to him. The reason is, he was sent as a messenger with a duty to fulfill a message for all mankind and creatures, mankind and Gene came. And he was interested in knowing whether he fulfilled the message correctly, that's what it was. So every time he would make dua, or Allah, my
alma when he was in tarrif, he said, Oh Allah, I am complaining to you about my weakness because you put it on my shoulders, to give these people the message. They don't want to listen to me Allah. They don't want to give me a chance My beloved brothers and sisters, amongst us are those who are as guilty as the people of five in a different way. We don't give Islam a chance. We don't want to listen to what is right and wrong. We will never attend sometimes an Islamic talk to save our lives. What's so different between us and the people of May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. These are the lessons we learned from the Sierra. Ask yourself if I was there, where would I fit in? Would I
fit in with Abu Bakr and Omar? Oh, would I fit in with Abu jehlen Abu lahab Allah protect us?
May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant the strength will lie These are words. Words that make us
Try words that make us think and weep. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thereafter left foremost deliever after the sun had set he did not read Madrid nor Asia. He left foremost Delhi for as he got to Muslim before he read his Madrid
and thereafter, they had let the animals settle down and immediately here it is Isha Salah as well. And thereafter he rested for a while and got up later on. When it was early morning at the first time of fudger. He was already having read, he got up and went to Iran. Today there is a mosquito day, it was Delica known as a machete haram because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had gone to that place. And at that particular time, after the first time of fudger, he had read his father, and he went there to make his draft until just before the sun had risen.
He then proceeded, proceeded to Minar. And when he proceeded to Mina, he had asked even in the long run to collect some pebbles, so if a basket of yellow and collected seven pebbles and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam went to what is known as acaba, the big the place where the devil was at the time of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, where he was instructed to pelt at the biggest force of the devil we call it Jonathan Cobra, the big devil. And this is where he pelted seven pebbles, where the shavon was, at the time of Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam following what Allah subhanho wa Taala had instructed him and he kept telling his companions who Aeneid manasi cacoon which means, follow
what I am doing in terms of this Hajj, do as I am doing in a nutshell, that is the meaning of hoodoo. unnim. And a seeker can take all your deeds and rituals from me and fulfill them according to what I am doing. This is what he taught, he's missing his companions.
And after he had melted,
he got up and he gave another lecture, similar to the one he gave the previous day.
And Subhan Allah on that particular occasion, he told them, perhaps I may not meet you for another Hajj, perhaps I may not join you for another Hajj. Perhaps you may not see me next year Subhan Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala Listen, imagine the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu in their 1000s they are listening to the words of the most beloved to them, who they sacrificed their lives for in the literal sense Subhanallah today we pay lip service those people gave their lives. Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala help us at least to fulfill our Salah, at least to dress appropriately, at least to replace those CDs that have in them. The voices of chiffon and replace them with the voice of
man, meaning with the words of man, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to substitute all that is evil. For all that is good. I mean
and after that lecture, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went forth to sacrifice the animals they had brought from Madina munawwara he slotted with his own hand sacrifices with his own hand. 63 camels Subhanallah on that day, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. They were sacrificing for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala, following the example of Ibrahim alayhi salaatu wa Salaam, and up to 100. between 63 and 100. He handed it to Ali, Vitali Brody Allahu anhu, who completed the 100 then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called the Baba and shaved his head. Very interestingly, we should know.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shaved his head, he made a dua for those who have shaved their head,
the hair on the head, and thereafter, a person who had just trimmed his hair says what about those who have trimmed? He continued to say May Allah bless those who have shaved, meaning shaving the head of the head.
and thereafter he was asked again, what about those who have trim pieces May Allah bless those who have shaved their heads. And after he repeated it thrice the fourth time, he says, and those who have trimmed as well, the lesson we learn, it's permissible to trim but never let the love of your hair.
Never let the love of your hair exceed the love you have of your maker and creator. This is one thing we should know. My beloved sisters, my beloved brothers, never let the love of your hair exceed the love of your maker. Never let the love of what you look like, exceed the love of your maker. So you think I am going to now do something to my face that is going to earn the wrath of my maker. Believe me that face we still want
In the best of forms, inshallah even better than what we have now we want it in the life after death, the way to do that, try and keep it as close as possible to what Allah has required. May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us the ease and the strength to follow his instruction at all times. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thereafter, went back to the Haram in Makkah to Makkah Rama, and he had engaged in what is known as our Holy Father, ortho office era, and thereafter he came back to Mina. He spent the night there, and the following day, after a while he had pelted all three of the gemera and when he pelted all three of the Gemina verses were revealed, some of the
most powerful verses and we read them tonight
Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, Elijah,
una de de la he
said be handy, because who in whom,
In the name of Allah, most Gracious, Most Merciful.
When the help of a law comes, and the victory of olark has come, then, and when you see all the people entering into the fold of Islam in huge armies, huge groups, large numbers, then declare the praise of your
declare the praise of Europe and seek His forgiveness, for indeed he is most forgiving Subhan Allah, the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu, they were happy to hear these verses, until they got to have to live in a bus or the alarm and they asked him, Allah has given you a gift of translating. And Allah has given you a gift of Tafseer of the Quran. Tell us, what do you make of these verses, he began to cry. He says these verses depict something. They show something. And they show that the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And his mission is coming to an end. So Panama, so he understood it, that once you see all the people entering Islam, your mission was to come and deliver
the goods. So these verses were revealed in the middle of the days of the ship. Why is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Amina May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson. We know these verses whenever we read them, we should know what they meant. And we should know when they were revealed. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam read these verses to his companions Subhana Allah.
And he continued giving them lecture upon lecture, and he reminded them I leave with you two things for as long as you hold fast upon them, you will never go astray. One is the book of Allah and the second is my asuna my way my traditions and my teachings Subhana Allah, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect us in this way, we will never be led astray now. Allah subhanho wa Taala opened our doors thereafter. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spent the three days day in Mena, he, he remained in the evening as well. He slept in Mena, and he would pelt the shayateen, one after the other after a while on those days, and thereafter, he went to Makkah to mukaiyama after those days
at night, in the evening, he had made this powerful movie that the farewell tours and thereafter he had instructed his people, let's leave and go back to Madina munawwara so the companions all gathered those from Madina, munawwara the Mahajan and Assad on the others, and they began to leave going to Madina munawwara until the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just near Jaffa, he got his companions again and gave them another lecture. This time, he repeated a lot of the same words, warning them about how they should not be fighting amongst one another, how sacred it is to look after the life of people to look after the wealth of people the dignity and honor of people
sallallahu alayhi wasallam then he says, I asked you to be kind to my family members Subhan Allah and I asked you to be kind to my family members. Be conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala regarding my family members, so this was also a message given by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam On his return journey we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the ability not only to honor the status of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam by constantly sending blessings and salutations upon him, but even remembering his entire family at every time what Allah alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam Allahumma salli ala Muhammad wa ala Ali Mohammed in baddeck Allah Muhammad Ali Muhammad in kamasan
later Baraka Allah Ibrahim Ali Ibrahim in naka hamidah Majid
May Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted from us For indeed anyone who sends blessings and salutations to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once Allah says, I will return it to you tenfold 10 times May Allah open our doors.
Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as he returned to Madina, munawwara he spent the night in Villa Neva. They'll put a face on the outskirts of Madina munawwara message was sent to his homes to say that he is now back and they will come the following morning, the following morning, as he was going back home, he was thinking Allah, looking at Madina, munawwara the peace of his own city Subhana Allah and how Allah has turned the hearts of all the people towards goodness, may Allah turn our hearts Allahumma mckinleyville kulu kulu bana Allah O Allah, who turns the hearts of people turn our hearts towards the deen and not away from it.
So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as he's entering Medina, so many things coming to mind. He says La ilaha illallah wa de who none worthy of worship besides Allah alone, so that Allah who he fulfilled his promise.
And he has helped his slave well as the agenda who and he has grown strings to his army. Well, hazama has a BA, and he is the one who singularly Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who caused the entire Alliance to be defeated. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant a string. So these were some of the words that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam uttered, he came back to Madina munawwara and this was in the month of June, and thereafter, he spent the next few months in Madina munawwara the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam started preparing an army of Osama bin Zayed, there'll be a lot more and because the Romans had started preparing an army to attack the Muslims once again when he heard
this, as was the norm. He said, Let us prepare. So he began to prepare the army and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to visit and he used to visit the graveyards where the martyrs were buried in and the graveyard of Buckley of Madina. munawwara he used to make dua for them and at the same time greet him As salam o Alaikum Allah dare Mina Mina one Muslim in we're in inshallah who become Lala Hakuna. May peace be upon you are you who are dwellers here of this graveyard from amongst the Muslims and what means and inshallah soon we are going to be joining you
have Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam soon we are going to be joining you may Allah have mercy on us, and on you as well. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one day he had attended a genocide in Bosnia, and on his return, it was approximately 28th or 29th of Safa. On his return, Subhan Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam suddenly suffered a headache. And the temperature rose so much he had as soon as he stood in his way, what was his way, whenever he had a headache, he would tie a band around his head, and knot it up exactly where it was painting. This works, it actually does work. So panela not only would it work for us, but it's an act of worship,
if we do it fulfilling asuna of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So he had a band tied on his head, because of his headache, and the heat was so much that it was felt even from the band and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fell ill on that particular day towards the end of suffering. his illness did not last more than two weeks sallallahu alayhi wasallam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as ill as he was, he would still leave the Salah in the masjid because his house his room in fact, today when we say house we talk of a three room house sometimes 10 rooms and sometimes we talk today of an sweet you know unsweet when a person has the loo right next to the
bed, may Allah protect us. This is the type of houses we have today. Still, we are not happy three four rooms we are not happy. We still need more and more Masha Allah Allah has given us why not. But look at the simplicity of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, one little room that was his place. Subhan Allah, each wife had one room. That's it one room. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us simplicity in our lives with you see, the point being made, we have so much we still don't have contentment. They had something very little but they were the most content. They were the happiest of people. Now open our doors. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thereafter, led the Salah.
And he continued leading the Salah, the last week of his life, he began to ask a question to his wives, because he had several wives. He was asking, Where am I tomorrow? Where am I going to be tomorrow? Where am I going to be tomorrow? So they would say you're going to be here. You're going to be there. Then they discussed amongst themselves. Look, he is ill he's not well let him go where he wishes so that he doesn't have to ask this question again. When they agreed on that they told him when they told him that
He said, If you would permit me, let me spend some time in the house of Chateau de la Juana.
So he could not walk at that time sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was taken, he walked very slowly with the help of a bus.
And leave me alone on the other hand, and as they helped him, he dragged his feet, and he was taken to the house of a Chateau de la. And he spent there the last week of his life, sallallahu alayhi, wasallam, five days before he passed away, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam temperature increased severely, until he fainted for a little while.
And he regained consciousness. And he said, Bring me seven bowls of water, the water from different wells, this was
his instruction, and pour it on me, because I want to go out and speak to my companions, the temperature is too high, I will use this water in order for it to cool the temperature so that I can feel better to speak to my companions. Imagine in this condition, he was still leading the Salah. And at the same time, he wanted to speak to his companions. So he used water to reduce. He used water to reduce the temperature sallallahu alayhi wasallam. and thereafter, he felt much better, he entered the masjid, with his head tied with that band because of the headache. And he sat on the member, and he spoke to his people. And this is something that he said.
He says, Allah has cursed the People of the Book, because they have taken the graves of their messengers, as places of worship. These are his words, they listening to him. So he says, never take my grave after me a place of worship, neither worship it, nor should you make it a festival. These are the words of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.
Thereafter, he says, All my people, if I have harmed anyone or hurt you on your back, here is my back. You may come for Recompense. For indeed it's the Day of Recompense Subhana Allah, and he opened up such that his back could be seen if I have heard anyone on their back, come, come on this day, because the day will come, when nothing will help. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grantors goodness sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as ill as he was he saying if I've harmed anyone, if I owe anyone anything, please let me know. Now it's reported one man came up and said that you owed a few data him and he informed his brother in law and him to sort him out to give him whatever was owed
sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
I am advising you to be kind to be good and to understand the respect of the answer. The answer will diminish in numbers. The answer the people of Medina munawwara, those who helped the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Mahajan. He says, fulfill their rights, be kind towards them. Then he continued on that day, whilst he was very ill, he tells them
indeed, a slave from amongst the slaves of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah gave him an option to remain in the world. And Allah gave him the option to be granted the beauty of this world Oh,
to go and get from that which Allah has kept with him. So the slave has chosen to go and get that which is with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Immediately Abu Bakr Siddiq of the Allahu anhu began to weep. He couldn't hold his tears. They asked him Yeah, Baba, why are you crying? He says because the one being spoken about is not any ordinary worshiper, he's speaking about himself. Allah gave him a choice to remain here. Or to go to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he is telling us in a beautiful way, I have chosen to go to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Then he says, My people,
I am most obliged to Abu Bakr Siddiq of your loved one in his companionship and his sacrifice of his wealth. And in my relation with him had had it not been for Allah subhanho wa Taala to have taken me as a eliel I would have if I was given the permission to take a saline I would have taken abubaker as a saline What is the meaning of saline. saline is the highest level of love is known as a hula, hula meaning the love of the highest degree. Allah subhanho wa Taala has declared that he has to have those
Helene's Who are they? One is Ibrahim Ali Salam. When is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? These are Akela May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant His goodness. So he is showing the people his close link with Abu Bakr Siddiq, Allah Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors thereafter, four days before he passed away. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave another talk. And again, he told him a Salah, Asana, Asana, my people don't leave Salah. Remember Salah is something you need to fulfill the Prophet sallallahu Sallam four days before he passed away. He gave the message of Salah fulfill your Salah, make sure that you fulfill it. He was still fulfilling it, although his health had
deteriorated. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness.
And then he continued reminding them, I leave with you two things. Don't forget, if you hold fast on these two, you will never be led astray. My book, sorry, the Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and my son my way my habit, my traditions, my teachings, my lifestyle. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the acceptance to study both of these and to put them into practice we are weak, we are in stand. But remember, if we have the intention and we start, inshallah, at least we will be moving up the ladder. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala granted to us.
Then on the Thursday before he passed away, four days before he passed away
on that Thursday,
he did not come out for Salah to Asia on time, the companions were waiting for him in their subs.
And what happened is
he fainted and he regained consciousness. He asked his wife I shall have the full food in Asia. She said no, they're waiting for you. He fainted again. And he gained consciousness have they fulfilled Asia? No, they're waiting for you tell them that Abu Bakar must leave them in Salah.
So the message goes to Abu Bakr Siddiq are
the people are shocked first Salah that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is not the first salah and so they delayed it a bit. But when he instructed I shall
go and tell them Abu Bakr must leave them in Salah. Then I shall delana went and everything had happened. Abu Bakr Siddiq Allahu anhu the first Salah he led was that Isha Salah on the Thursday before the death of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and thereafter he had led 17 Salas Abu Bakr, Siddiq Allahu anhu in the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam led 17 Sala
and three days before the Prophet sallallahu Sallam passed away, Jabir ibn Abdullah the Allahu anhu says, I heard him saying something very important.
None of you should die, except in the condition that you have a good perception of Allah subhanho wa Taala don't die until you have a good perception of whom you are returning to Subhan Allah and from this will end when people are of age when we remind people give them good news. Allah is merciful. Allah loves you, the good you have done Allah will accept the bad you have done, he will forgive ask Allah to forgive and Allah will forgive. So a person knows they are returning to the Most Merciful, not to one who's going to punish you and destroy you and really throw you into the fire for no reason. May Allah protect us as we always say Allah, we have hope in you that you will grant us
paradise without reckoning Allah subhanho wa Taala so this is the gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala the messenger is saying, three days before he passed away, Jabir ibn Abdullah the Allahu anhu says, I heard him say clearly, that none of you should die until you have a good perception of your hub of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanahu wa taala make us from those who have a good perception of Allah, we go through difficulties, we go through tribulations, trials, health matters, one of the companions walked in and saw the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in pain in severe pain. He says on messenger sallallahu Sallam you are going through pain. He says, oh, let me tell you that when Allah
subhanho wa Taala has put something of this nature, in a person's life, any sickness, any pain that they go through, for as long as they are bearing Sabbath and patience, it wipes out or it releases their sins, just like when you shake a tree with dry leaves and all the leaves happen to fall out. That is how the person is cleansed. So when we are going through difficulty, the messenger in his last days said that it is just like a tree being shaken and all the leaves drop. That's how the sins drop until the level is elevated. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grantors goodness Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam did not have any sin. This was only elevation and evasion of his status and it was
the decision of Allah subhanho wa Taala and thereafter
Approximately two days before a day or two days before the Prophet sallallahu Sallam passed away.
While Abu Bakr Siddiq Allahu anhu was about to perform the Salah. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam felt slightly better. And as he came out Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu in back and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thereafter, led the Salah next to Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu anhu with him, declaring the tech be allowed so people could hear what was being said because of the soft voice of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam at that particular time.
This was a day or two days before he had passed away, suddenly Allahu alayhi wa sallam.
Thereafter, one day before he passed away, he called for those who are his slaves and he freed all of them salallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had a few coins, gold coins that are near him.
gold or silver coins. He gave them the few that he had six or seven, he gave them out in charity.
and thereafter, his armor. his armor was in fact given to a Jewish men as collateral for some food that he had taken when he had had some guests to Panama, and the rest of his weapons that he had had a few swords and so on, he gave them to the muslimeen as a gift sallallahu alayhi wasallam and thereafter,
the last day sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the time of Abu Bakr Casa de la and who was leading the Salah
last day sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This was a Monday, the 12th of
Abu Bakr Siddiq leading the Salah, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, not well at all. But he got up in his own room, and he moved the curtain from that curtain. He could see what was going on. He saw Abubakar leading the salon, and he saw all the all the lines of all the believers fulfilling salah and he was so happy and as the curtain moved, Abu Bakr Siddiq robiola one who noticed that this is the messenger sallallahu Sallam who moved the curtain. So immediately he began to move back because there is no ways that a man could lead Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in Salah.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as Abu Bakr Siddiq of Allah who was stepping backwards, firstly, when he saw his people and the Muslim Ummah, he smiled. He was so happy. He was so happy I shadowed The law says it was as though he is looking at these people and he's so happy to say that the message has been fulfilled. Here are the people worshipping Allah alone after they were worshipping idols in this whole region Subhan Allah, so he was so happy, and He then made the same to Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu anhu with his hand to say you continue leading the Salah, so Baba Casa de la mano continued leading the Salah, that was the last Salah that was led. That was the last
Salah that was led by Abu Bakr Siddiq are the Allahu anhu in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. That morning, he called his daughter Fatima, he tells us something in her ear, she begins to cry. Then he says something else in her ear. She begins to laugh. Later on, they asked her Yeah, Fatima, what did your father tell you before he passed away?
She says, the first thing he told me is, I am not going to become better from this illness of mine. It's going to be the last and I'm going to be taken by Allah subhana wa. So I began to cry. And secondly, he told me, don't worry, oh, Fatima, you are going to be the first one to join me. So I was so happy from my family members, you are going to be the first one to join me through to that she was the first one to join Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam thereafter, then,
he decided to call Allison wolf saying his grandchildren, he kissed him on the forehead. And he told the people to be kind to them. He told the people to be kind to his family members to his grandchildren. and thereafter he called his wives and he gave them advice. And he reminded them about Allah. And he reminded them who they were and their status and what they had chosen for indeed, they were given a choice to choose the dunya or to choose Allah and the messenger, they had chosen to learn the messenger. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam reminded them of their duties. and thereafter, he tells his wife, I shall do Oh, I can still feel the taste and the pain. After I had
put that little piece of meat in my mouth from haber when the lady tried to poison me. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all a lesson. So he could taste that and he says I am feeling the effects of it, although he did not eat it. But what happened is
he just put it in his mouth and he's saying it still has had an effect on me. So lala land
He will sell them.
And then again he reminds his people a Salah, Salah Malika Monaco, your treatment of your servants, your slaves and so on. Be careful. Remember that Allah subhanho wa Taala has put them under your control or under your authority, treat them in a proper manner. And in Islam Subhan Allah as we are all aware that the slaves were freed one by one because any sin that was committed by people, the first way to achieve forgiveness is Do you have any slaves if you do have start freeing them Subhana Allah, you free a slave to gain forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala This is how slowly but surely all the slaves became free and they they came a time now when there is no slavery now Allah
subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness.
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was in the womb of Ayesha, Allah and her for that last week. And it was on the day that he was supposed to be with Ayesha of the Allah. And at the same time, he was now on the lap of eyeshadow Viola on his wife, with his head on her lap sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Abdul Rahman Ibn Abu Bakr, the brother of Ayesha
walks in and he had a miswak he had the little roots that is used to clean the teeth. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam looked at it. So I asked him, would you like it? He said, Yes. So she took it because it was too hard. She put it into her own mouth and chewed it made it soft and gave it to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam who cleaned his teeth properly. and thereafter, he asked for a little bowl that was placed right next to him which had water in it, he would put his hands in the water and wipe his face. And he would say, la la la, la la, la la Mattila sakara. Indeed, there is none worthy of worship besides Allah. Definitely death has come with its pens, which means the pen is the
sakura of death.
Death has something known as the pangs of death. These are the last moments May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for us. The day we go.
Then he raised his finger, the
finger that we all raised in Salah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then looked up into the ceiling sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is on the lap of eyeshadow, viola. And the public is not there.
This is a private room where I shall have the law is and I shall allow Anna says he started moving his lips. And I tried to hear what he said. And I caught his last words. These were the last words of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. Before I say these last words, and the be of Allah is shown his place in general, and he's asked to go there or to remain and always they choose to go there. Obviously that is the best of places, the angels of death that come they need to seek permission to take this route away. They are granted it never ever are they not granted by those who are supposed to be asked permission from. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam responding this call, he says, Man
Lavina and tally him. I want to be with those whom you have granted a favor upon
manana begin from amongst those who are messengers was cityteam those who are truthful was shuhada. Those who are martyrs was solidly him and those who are pious. And then he says, Allah homophily Allah forgive me, what harmony have mercy upon me, will hit me in Allah. And let me join those who are in the loftiest of positions. He was already shown his position and he says Ola Take me there. And he continued saying Allahumma
Allah until he was silent sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah ilaha illallah wa shadow, Mohammed Abu hora sudo these were the last moments of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam
these were the last words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It was a Monday the 12th of Robbie and his age was exactly 63 years. According to the Islamic calendar, may Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us lives that will be the coolness of lives that will be
led within the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala in a way that when we get to Jenna, we will be given what will be the coolness of our eyes, I mean, and a Sidney Malik or the Allahu anhu says Allah He the best day that we ever saw and the day that was lit up in the most, in the biggest way was the day that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam entered Madina munawwara and the day that was the day
darkest day we ever saw the day that we detested the most was the day this particular day that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away sallallahu alayhi wa sallam news began to spread. People began to talk within Medina, the Prophet salallahu Salam has passed away, Omar, Allah who got up with his sword, he says, Whoever says the Prophet has passed away, I will strike his head. No one is going to say he's passed away today. He's not passed away.
He's the same one who cried during this
during the farewell pilgrimage when he heard the verses of Yama.
But imagine the news.
You know, when people lose their little loved ones, little children, they can't believe it. Are you sure? This was the best of creation sallallahu alayhi wasallam passing away into the era Subhan Allah and you have this habit of weeping, crying, and at the same time, Omar says no, don't even say he's passed away.
So Ababa Casa de la who had come
and when he came, he entered the room of his own daughter. He saw Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam covered, he opened his face, and he kissed him on his forehead. He says Be Abby until omya rasulillah May my mother and my father be sacrificed for you or messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam we have sacrificed our mothers and fathers for you sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He says, You will never taste death twice. As for the death that was written for you, you have tasted it. That's it. It comes once and now at peace to Panama. And this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told Fatima Fatima Your father will never taste any pain after today. That's what he told his daughter. Your father will never taste any pain after today. This was moments before he passed away. He told his daughter Fatima
and thereafter the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in that condition. Abu Bakr Allahu anhu comes out and he tells him sit down sit down, come down. He says no, I don't want so Ababa Casa de for the Allahu anhu declares the Shahada and begins to speak. He speaks to his to the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And he says
oh people they started gathering around him.
When Canada Abu Mohammed and Mohammed and cut Mata woman, Canada, Abdullah in Allah hi Jolla, la Yamato. Whoever was worshipping Mohammed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has passed away. Whoever was worshipping Allah, Allah is alive and never dies. Allah is the everlasting Subhana Allah. These were the words of Abu Bakar the people heard it, they understood and he read verses on.
indeed, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a messenger is the verse of the Quran. Allah kabani Rasul messengers before him have passed away after
our coup de la Cala tamala kabhi come.
If he passes away, or he is killed, will you then turn back on your heels? question that Ally's asking?
Why am I
Whoever turns back on their heels if that happens, it will not harm Allah at all was
shocking. And Allah will grant a good recompense to those who are thankful when Amara Malhotra heard these words he says he come down. It says though it's the first time I'm hearing these words. And indeed, these words are the truth. I remember I recall hearing them now. But it says though, it's the first time I have heard these words. And then Subhanallah there was a meta that needed to be addressed immediately. What was that? Who is going to be the leader? So there was a discussion. Some of the answer was suggesting someone some of the Mahajan was suggesting someone until they all agreed unanimously they agreed that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam had granted virtue to Abu
Bakr, Siddiq Ravi Allahu anhu. More than everyone else, he was together with him in the cave. He had been granted the authority of Salah he was the one disputed for Hajj and so many other things that we may not even have mentioned. And because of that, every one of them pledged allegiance to Abu Bakr, Siddiq or the Allahu anhu
As alfalfa to rasheeda, the one who will take over as ameerul momineen after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this pledge happened in a place known as suceava to benissa ada, if you go to Madina munawwara today, there is a library known as maktab al Malik Abdul Aziz, right next to the library, there is a little garden that place is known as suceava to benissa. To this day, it has a few day palms and that in it, if you visit the place, it would be interesting to look at it and to know what exactly happened there. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness, this took the whole day, because obviously, so many people had come and they were deciding about the appointment and
they were pledging allegiance. The allegiance took the whole day, the following day on the Tuesday so panela towards the evening, the body of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was watched by Allah,
Allah and he was the one who was watching the body rhodiola and, and Osama bin Zayed as well as Shaquan, who was a freed slave of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam, they were pouring the water, and the bass
and the uncle of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam together with his two cousins and father. And
these two have we're
turning the body whenever it needed to be turned, but they did not remove the clothing of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam they had a discussion and they said with him, we're not going to take his clothes out. Meaning in order to bathe him, as you know, when a person passes away, we are taught to bathe them, wash them with water, nothing else water and a little bit of perhaps we when I say nothing else, I mean, you know people spread rumors that we cut the body we repeat, we do this we do that all that is tail, it's falsehood. And it's actually that which people who dislike Islam, because they want to keep people away from Islam in Islam. What you need to wash the body
thoroughly. You may use soap at that time, they used what was known as the leaves of the berry tree known as the city
and they washed the body thrice.
There was a man known as even holy, he was the one who who had been holding the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam making him lean on him. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they watched him they enshrouded him in three sheets that were white sheets from Yemen, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thereafter was there in the room of eyeshadow, the LaWanda. Now come time for janaza Salah.
Prior to this, there was a discussion, where should he be buried so Abu Bakr Siddiq of the Allahu anhu says, I remember he said, missing Jews should be buried exactly where they pass away in order to resolve the dispute. So a Buddha
he moved the bidding of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and dug exactly where he passed away. This was in the house of I shall they allow Anna and thereafter, the people came in to read Salatu janaza. They did not remove the body from there. People came in 10 by 10 small groups and they led Sala to Genesis they read on their own each one reading his own Salah to Genesis. There was no one who was an Imam. They came in little groups. They read Genesis, one after the other when the from amongst the men first the relatives, then the Maha Jeannine then the answer. When they were finished, the women came in also in groups, they led Salatu janaza, one after the other when they were finished,
then the younger people, those who were children and so on, were given the opportunity also. Obviously, these are those of understanding age, they came in, they also lead Salatu Genesis, and thereafter the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was buried exactly in that place that he had passed away on the spot, and the grave had been dug known as a lad lad is like a slight L shaped, L shaped grave. So it's dug down and slightly towards one side, so that the body is put into the little
portion that is dug, going to the side, and then after it is filled up with soil and with dust. This was where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was buried. And Subhan Allah, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us opening to grant us goodness, this is the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, perhaps there will be more detail of what had transpired and how abubaker the Allahu anhu was pledged allegiance to when we speak in sha Allah on some occasion about the lives of these hula starting with Abu Bakar Casa de la Mian Allah be pleased with all of them, I'd like to end off
by repeating what I said moments ago.
This was the most blessed of all creatures the highest in status of all the creatures, the one whom his qualities and characters will have such a high standard, that by following them not only would we achieve success in this world and the next but we would be
rewarded automatically, just by following whatever he has brought today. The question I have, as we have ended the series on the Sierra of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Where are we? And where are his teachings? We claim to love the Prophet sallallahu wasallam we claim to be his followers.
We utter the Shahada. We say so much
can we leave even one bad habit?
Can we leave the adultery that is being committed? Can we leave
the drinking of the alcohol, the gambling, the interest, various other sins that we are committing, backbiting, stealing, usurping harming one another? These are the last words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he warned us not to fight amongst one another. These were his last words sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his last week and throughout the last year of his life. salallahu alayhi wasallam Indeed, we owe him a lot. And this is why the one who is deserving the intercession of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the greatest is He who follows that example as best as he can. May Allah make us from those who can constantly pass blessings and salutations upon
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allahumma salli ala nabina Muhammad wa ala nabina Muhammad in kamasan later Allah Ibrahim Ali Ibrahim in Amita Majid Allahumma barik Allah Muhammad Allah Allah Allah Muhammad in camara Ibrahim Allah Allah Allah Ibrahima innaka Hamid Majid Allahumma salli ala Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Adama in subhana
