are servants of a lion or children of Adam, with regards to the incidents surrounding the death of our beloved sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We don't have time to start with the many, many incidents before the main incidents. So let us zoom into robiola one. because there'll be a one is a month that we are in right now. And in this month, our beloved sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born, and in this month, he migrated to Medina salallahu alayhi wasallam. And in this month, he passed away, as is a consensus of the allameh even hedger, Ashima. Home, Allah says, This is as good as a consensus that he passed away on Monday, in robiola, one sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If we look at
we find that it was in this month that his sickness, which began prior became even more serious. And when I say prior, I mean that the cause of the sickness was some meat, which he sallallahu alayhi wasallam consumed when he was invited by the people of high bar. When Sabre fell into the hands of the Muslims, there was a meal presented a sheep was presented to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he partook of the sheep with his companions. And when he put a morsel of food in his mouth, this morsel spoke out to him and said, this is indeed poisoned. Thus Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shouted out to his companions and prevented them from consuming this meat. But as
for him, he had consumed it. And at the end of his life, he said, till today, I feel the effects of what happened at haven. And the scholars have derived from this, that this act was the means of his sicknesses that led to his passing away. sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Thus, by this act, Allah subhanho wa Taala showered upon him a great blessing showered upon him a great blessing. And that was the blessing of him passing away as a Mata sallallahu alayhi wa sallam salallahu alayhi wa sallam, he passed away as a prophet. He passed away as a messenger. He passed away as a Shaheed as a martyr, because of the act of this female from clayborne sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his ranks
was increased. Why? Because he went through several difficulties because of the sickness, severe fevers, severe headaches, and inshallah we'll come to that just now.
So with this act, did our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam begin his journey with a terminal illness sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then on Thursday, before his death, and what will make you understand what Thursday means? Even at best of the Allahu anhu my once you set in Mr. Dill Haram, and he flicked some pebbles. And as he flicked them, he said, Yom,
Yom alchemise. He kept speaking about Thursday. And he said, Indeed, it was a Thursday, when the sickness of death, visited Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The sickness visited him. After he went to bury one of his companions. He returned home
and he entered upon a shot of the Allahu Allah. And when she saw him, she complained of a headache. She goes, I have
a headache. Wha, sir, as they would say, in the Arabic language, I have a headache. And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam heard this, he said Belvoir, he complained to her of his headache. He complained to her of his headache, but even then, he spoke to her gently and politely. And this is a lesson for the husbands. He spoke to her gently and lightly and said, Oh, Ayesha, what do you think? How do you think it would be? If you were to pass away before me and I were to bathe you and shroud you and pray over you and bury you? How do you think it would be? And she said back to him? She loved him dearly, that would come back to you otherwise.
Right? This is what she was concerned about. So he smiled, and he left it at that. So Allahu alayhi wa sallam. So this was Thursday, and this is when he was affected by this great headache. And in his knowledge of his imminent departure, as we find in the Muslim Imam Ahmed in a Hadith, which is hessen he called a boo Moy Heba rhodiola and, and he instructs
Get him to prepare his mount. This heavy rock the other one prepared.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his mount and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam got onto his mount, and he wrote away and Abu Moy he borrowed the Allahu and followed, and in followed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to feel heard or heard, where the Battle of offer took place where the martyrs of hood were buried Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to visit them. And when he was done,
he turned to abou Moy he broke the law.
And he said to him, yeah, more Heba. Oh, Abu mahira Allah subhanho wa Taala has given me a choice between taking the keys of this world and remaining here longer, and then the companionship of the elevated in the hereafter. He has given me a choice between that and immediate companionship with the elevated companions. And when the Sahaba of the Allahu and heard this, he turned to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said oh prophet of Allah, Take the keys, Take the keys, so you can remain here as long as you can with us, and then choose the elevated companions. Choose here first, and then choose the elevated companions and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, No,
the companions of the elevated the companions of the elevated the companions of the elevated Bell, or rafiqul, Allah Bell, or rafiqul Allah, then Allah Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in Bukhari in the heads of oka Ibn Amira, radi Allahu Allah. It states that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam addressed them after his arrival to offerte when he arrived at offered he turned to them and said ma for LA cumin soccer, I don't see a for you or poverty.

We know that our attachment and running behind this world has retrogressive results to our heart.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala talks to us and teaches us about the people before us. And what happened when they changed after this dunya and what was the result upon their hearts. And what was the end? In surah two headed Allah subhanho wa Taala says

many of them were sinful. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. Listen to the advice of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam days before he passed away. Think about this or servants of Allah. Think about this. Oh Children of Adam, what balance do you have in your life? This is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before parting. He's leaving with us His most sincere advice he's leaving with us that which indeed will be the success of this dunya and the afra. Ask yourself how well have you balanced your devotion to this dunya and your devotion to the earth Hara?
Has your life become that monotonous life of me, myself, my wife, my children, as long as we comfortable, everyone within my sphere of influence is comfortable. Thus I will be comfortable, have we become selfish or servants of Allah and oh Children of Adam, he is our Beloved Muhammad Ali Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the knowledge of his departure, going through fever, going through headaches, going through difficulty, he goes out to meet the people of Oxford, and he bears witness to their martyrdom, and then he turns around, and he's telling those who are alive, I don't feel for you.
He doesn't feel for a speaker. And Allah would reveal to him he never spoke from himself. Why have we become entities that fear fucka?
May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant is the understanding for Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke in truth, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the sickness of servants of Allah. After that moment intensified, the sickness intensified. And he became extremely weak. And then he posed the question to his wives. And this wasn't his norm. He said to them, where should I go? This wasn't his norm. We know he was just, he was just and even though he had those extra feelings, which was not in his control, for eyeshadow, the other one, he was just but he was so weak here. And his end was near that he asked, Where shall I go, and they instructed him to go to the house of a shadow of the
Allahu Allah. And thus he was carried there, he was carried there by a bass for the Allahu Allah. And he was carried there by anybody to be a part of the Allahu and so weak that he couldn't walk, he needed to be carried there. And he entered there and rested there. And that would be these last moments that would be his place of rest, for the
small and minute amount of time that he had in the dunya.
And with the passing of every minute, and every hour, and every day, the sickness began to get severe, and more severe, and more severe, even miss rhodiola and he says, I entered upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I touched him and I said, Dr. rasulillah, you are in extreme pain. And he said, Yes, I am in extreme pain. The pain I feel is equivalent to the pain of what two of you would feel La Ilaha Illa
La ilaha illa Allah.
The pain I feel is equivalent to the pain that two of you would feel.
But Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being immensely to us, never left the message there. He comforted his companion and comforted us all, and said, and told him and taught him that even miss rude, nothing affects a believer, except that Allah Almighty uses his patience over it to remove his errors.
It's not something that will go astray and become lost and will be taken for granted. every difficulty you feel is a means of your betterment. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was free from sin. He had no sin, some Allahu alayhi wa sallam. But these difficulties for him was the means of raising his rank even more. La ilaha illAllah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It is authentically reported or servants of Allah and O Children of Adam, that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam suffered such a high fever that they had to place him in a crate, and they had to pour water over him seven times to reduce this burning. This is what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam went
through servants of Allah, this severe heat
that he felt
required that they had to pour water seven times.
And because of this fever, as established in Sahih, Al Bukhari and Sahih Muslim he now could not come out and lead the press. We're talking about the final moments of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This is huge for the Ummah, that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has not led them in Salah when he was president he was the Imam, so weak he was he could not come out and lead the Ummah in prayer. Thus he instructed them to push Abubakar Viola and forward and they were astonished by his choice. And they tried to ask him Are you sure? And are you sure? And are you sure for Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allah and his his. He's a soft man. He cries a lot. Well, he managed to
pray, knowing you and your condition and knowing that he is leading the prayer. He is leading the prayer here.
Once you are alive, oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam insisted Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam insisted and Abercrombie of Lahore and took the podium and he led the oma
Salah once Bahama sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was alive. Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him the pleasure of seeing Salah established behind any man other than him before he passed away. So Allahu alayhi wa sallam. And to be honest, this was a lesson for the Ummah, in this extreme difficulty and sickness. This was a lesson for the AMA, for Salalah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam taught the Ummah, who they should pick as their next leader, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So throughout this difficulty, he's still a mercy to mankind. We don't have time today to discuss the adversities after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but by Allah if you internalize his situation,
before passing away, and the magnanimous lessons he's leaving for this ummah.
Even with regards to who would take on the post after him, this is absolutely amazing. And it makes us understand how truly he was rushed mentally ill and I mean, he was a mercy to the world sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
de la sallallahu alayhi wasallam are servants of Allah and oh Children of Adam, as he was being treated, and water was being poured over him. A time came when he felt he was a bit strong. He was not strong enough to walk himself rather he felt he was a bit strong. And with this little strength, he took it upon himself to come out of the home and go to the masala he took it upon himself to do this, and he was carried there. And Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allah started stepping back to allow Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to take his rightful place. But Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him to remain where he was. He gave him a hand signal to remain where he was. And
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was placed on the left of Abu Bakar radi Allahu Allah and the owner of the Sahaba radi Allahu anhu that were there. They let the Salah behind Abu Bakr he was the man. He was the Imam Yes, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was next to him. But the Salah was led by Abu Bakr rhodiola one.
This is how weak he was or servants of Allah. And this is how weak he was, oh Children of Adam. And this is how hot he was. And I'm sure each and every one of us feel here. And we wish that we could have taken these sicknesses and these difficulties from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we left him calm and comfortable. I'm sure we wish that they were only I'm sure we wish that for we should have this love for him. sallallahu alayhi wasallam we should love him better than ourselves and love him better than our parents and love him better than everything in creation. sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So, with all this heat, and with all the sickness, and with all this weakness, he still attended the Jamaat, he did his best, and he still continued to teach them by Allah, He taught. He taught them during this dire difficulty, not to make his grave a podium of worship. He warned the Ummah, he taught them, even though he was suffering. He was a mercy and he wanted to ensure our guidance after him. He warns the Ummah from making his grave a podium of worship, like what happened to the NBA, like what was done to their graves, after they passed away. Something Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he taught them about patience through adversity. And you saw that in his message, Steven was rude.
He taught them during this diet difficulty, the next leader, and he taught them as well for when they were lining up behind the Abu Bakr radiallahu. And he said to them, the place of record and the place of sujood is not a place for the recitation of the Quran.
He taught them
during this great difficulty, and he emphasized the importance of Salah four, he said, a swell a Salah, Uppsala, a fella, he taught the Ummah, on his deathbed about the importance of Salah.
He also talked to Omar during this difficulty or servants of Allah, and O Children of Adam, the rights of others, the cook and the bed, the rights of the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala for his authentically established that during his dire difficulty, he asked all those that he may have harmed to come and redeem themselves. La ilaha illa Allah, if I'm, by chance harm, somebody can take your heart here right now sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he instructed that all those that he might have borrowed from he instructed that they be paid back and he is from La Jolla. He was Helen freed his slaves
and he advised oma never to forget the character.
And surface of the unsolved rock the Allahu anhu. mining. He told his companions never to forget the service of the anzar teaching us to be people of gratitude and teaching us to be people who think not to be people who when somebody does good to us, we do the opposite is nurturing the masala Allahu alayhi wa sallam in his dying sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and
he continued being a mercy to us. We are Muslim Hannah, who Allah gave us with him agenda.
