It was one thing to see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hungry and in poverty, it was another thing to see him human and in pain. If you live in that society, he is your Superman. So the law when he was selling, it's uncomfortable, to see the profit slice of them in grief. And there's a difference between the crying that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam has in his salah and his prayer, and in his remembrance, and the crying that he has with tragedy sallallahu it he was settled on when it strikes his own home.
Many times when we talk about the death of the prophets license children, we just mentioned that he buried six out of seven sallallahu wasallam. And we tend to group them all in together. And of course, every single death of every child of the profit slice and I'm stung him. But Ibrahim was a very, very different death, because the circumstances of his life were so different. This is when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was about to die himself. It his Salatu was Salam. And he's over 20 years after the last child before his birth, so fathima while the Allahu tada Anna is the last child before Ibrahim, and the rest of them have all passed away the Prophet size M has lost all five of
them. His two other sons died when they were little, and his three other daughters live to be adults and get married and the prophets lie some buried them all. And faulty model the allowance Hannah and Her is, of course, a married woman now and she has her own children, and her children are like children to the profit slice alum. And then Allah blesses the Prophet sallallahu wasallam with his first son in Islam, and it seems to come at a time when the prophets lie some is about to depart from this world. And so there is so much that is tied to this child. Think about the joy of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam for the first time, having a son with all of the rituals of Islam, and
it's at this point in his life, so Allah who I knew he was Salaam, and he's able to take his son, his only son in Islam, and perform the advan in his ears, and to do the technique of his own son sallallahu wasallam after he's done that for so many other children, and to perform the apisa for his own son sallallahu wasallam after he's done that for so many other people's sons and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would take Ibrahim his son with such pride and he would say to the people look at the Rasul Allah who novia come whether the was a maid to who either abhi Ibrahim, look, oh people, Allah has blessed your prophet with a son. And I named him after my father Ibrahim, think
about that Subhana Allah think about being in the masjid when the Prophet slice alum is holding Ibrahim for the first time attending the paper, the prophet slice alum bringing him around and the Prophet slicin them clearly had an attachment to this child. So he used to visit him daily when he was with his Westerners. He used to take him with him sallallahu wasallam, when he would visit the homes of his spouses, he would bring him to the masjid salallahu alayhi wasallam. He used to always go out to see him when he was with his wepner. So it was known that the prophets lie some had an excitement to go and see his own son, Ibrahim now, after all of these years, his own son sallallahu
wasallam. That seems to be the one son that's going to survive him after his death. And then Anissa dramatical, the Allahu taala. And who speaks about what happened Ibrahim was about 16 months old. So he's not a little baby in the sense that at 16 months old, the baby has a personality. You have that connection to that baby, and and a symptomatic of the law and who describes the scene when the messenger comes to the messenger sallallahu wasallam from the house of his wetness says you're still alive. Brahim Ibrahim is really sick. And it looks like he's about to die. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam drops what he's doing. And he goes with his companions to the home of the wetness.
And the husband of the wet nurse was a man by the name of Abu safe and he was a blacksmith. So the profit slice some goes to him and he asks for permission to enter. And he takes Ibrahim
and the profit slice alum who has held this baby and showed him to all of us like a proud father would and who loves this baby so much and now is seeing him dying the profit slice I'm cabella, who was Shambo Anasazi, Atlanta, and he says that he held him Salalah. Hardy was the alum. He kissed him and he started to smell his hair. And as he's holding him sallallahu wasallam. The Sahaba are just looking on at him. You're looking at him holding his son and this is the most human and vulnerable moment that you're going to see your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Ibrahim starts to breathe harder and slower and uninstall the Allahu taala and he says in the arms of
messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his soul left his body, in the arms of the messenger salallahu alayhi wa sallam, how difficult is it for a father to hold their own child and their child breathed their last in their arms and your profit as a heart full of love and mercy. So the profits license starts to weep
of the amount of growth while the Allahu anhu he looks at the profits, I sell them. And he says, What NTR Salalah you to O Messenger of Allah. And he wasn't saying that with cruelty. It's not like the man who who said that to the Prophet slice on when he was kissing of Hassan when he was saying, and he was saying it from a point of arrogance. It's from a place of of admiration and yada sort of like you cry too. We're not used to seeing you this way. We're not used to seeing the Prophet slice and I'm break down we're not used to seeing the Prophet slice and and weep in such a fashion over his child. We see this from other people, and also Los Alamos he's holding his son who has now
passed away in his hands. And the Prophet slice alum looks at him and he says, You have no old son of oath. It's Rama. It's mercy that Allah puts in the heart Allah put this mercy in my heart, I can't help myself, right. I love this child. And and so the Allahu anhu said the prophets license started to weep more, and we were staring at the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and of course they were crying with him. How would you not if you're sitting with the Prophet slice, I'm holding his dead son at that point. And the Prophet slice and I'm said in an aina, Ted the map when called bison, what ernakulum illa mejor de la we're in a beefy rocky for yo Ibrahim that has gone on the masculine
one. The eyes are shedding tears, the heart feel sadness, and we don't say except that which is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala we're in a beefy rockliffe Brahim, the magazine or in the magazine on and we are sad Oh, Ibrahim over your departure. We are sad Oh, Ibrahim over your departure. We are sad Oh Ibrahim over your departure we're grieving over your loss, oh, Ibrahim, and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Who got to enjoy this one son in Islam, this one child in Islam, in fact that he got to do the rituals of Islam with now he has to do the rituals of Islam with this child in terms of his janazah he has to wash him sallallahu wasallam he has to shout him sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam, he places him in the grave himself. So the Lahore it was some of them. And he leads his janazah.
Now if you live in Medina at the time, because you've probably heard this Hadeeth about the eclipse a few times.
The Eclipse happens, a solar eclipse happens on the same day, the Prophet slicin on Sundays, Ibrahim died that day. And they looked up and the sun eclipsed the moon, how would you not think that there's some connection between the two. And you have seen the grief of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in a way that you've never seen before. It's a unique type of grief that the Prophet slice alum is facing. So of course, the Sahaba they started to say that the sun eclipsed for the death of Ibrahim, and that's why we're seeing this this phenomenon happen. Of course, it happens on the same day. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam comes out and he leads the prayer of kosuth he leads the
eclipse prayer sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and it's so long that you would think behind him sallallahu I use them because of the length of his Salah during that Eclipse, and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Of course, you can imagine his doodads and where his heart is in those moments, but even then, he still our teacher sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he teaches us how to grieve it his salatu salam to cry like a human being to have that softness of the heart, but at the same time to make sure that you don't say anything that's displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And even then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stands up and he says, the sun and the moon are two I art
there are two signs of the signs of Allah. They don't Eclipse for the death of anyone, nor do they Eclipse for the birth of anyone. So when you see these eclipses, then make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala and pray and give sadaqa Subhana Allah Even then, the Prophet slicin was teaching with his actions, and with his words, and if you feel pain, know that your prophet felt pain sallallahu wasallam and if you cry, know that your prophet cried as well, but also know that your prophet set the example sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of patients, and even in the hardest moment of his life, the only thing that was coming out of here wasn't hamdulillah and that's what was in his heart as well.
