honorable scholars, brothers, elders and the esteemed listeners out there. In sha Allah, we endeavor to bring to you now a series titled regarding the moral without the fatal and terminal illness of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there can be no two opinions on the fact that the greatest day in the annals of human history is the day of the birth, and the produce and the arrival and the will of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in the same vein, and in the same breath, they simply cannot be a greater catastrophe that had struck the inhabitants of this earth and and in its entirety, then the tragic and the sad demise of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa

I am not only crying over
the sad demise of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but I'm equally crying over the trials that will grip and rock the planet post the demise of Novi Sad allamani wasallam. And how often we see that there's an elderly man in the family and he keeps the families united and there's Mahabharata and Baraka and one man leaves, and then we find that the families got divided and things changed drastically, both the demands of the senior member of that family, and if that could be said about an average common elder and senior, then No words can aptly describe the chaos and the mayhem that had gripped and rocked the planet and continues post the demise of the messenger sallallahu

While I can Umrah who can Amalia but then who can alter the destiny and the decree of the Almighty. This was inevitable and it had to prevail. And it came at the time that Allah had ordained and decreed it.

So inshallah we endeavor to share with you in these episodes and series that we will be embarking on highlighting the latter part of the blessed life of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commencing from his mobile without going down to the
crucial moment of his passing away from this temporary transitory and mundane world. So maroto Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will refer to who salallahu alayhi wasallam the illness of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fatal and the subsequent events that occurred as it moved on. Now we need to remind ourselves no human in the annals of history, no humans life has been captured in such detail, like the life of the messengers or the lives and the narration of the manager. The Sahaba have also discussed and highlighted how many strands of white hair were on the blessed beard and head of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the day he passed away. So can
you imagine at the time of the demise of the messenger, sallAllahu wasallam, at 63, how many strands of white hair were there on the blessed beard of the messenger sallallahu Sallam and likewise on his head, and there are different narrations varying from 1920 and 21. And the scholars of Hadith reconcile between these varying opinions. The point I endeavor to impress via this narration is the detail account of the life of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the author writes in an raha a Sofitel cobia led to Draco Bhavana Yoku moku, and wha ha Joby lavey Allahu taala. That the clean hearts the blesser the hearts the Sacred Hearts are often privilege to get a glimpse of what
is going to happen and that they are nearing death towards the latter part of their life. So often people ask the question that does a person have a feeling and intuition and inclination, an idea? Well, yes, it does happen not for all but for some people, they do tend to feel a sense that things are now coming towards, you know, an end in this world, and the journey into the latter is very close. Well, it was zakia Tony Mastani Robbie neurol a man electrodry Kumara al favi. Well, after that dirty Manisha Ratan will tell me what the Nabina sallallahu alayhi wasallam in how the history Fati and haberfield wahoo Amina have been mahali alpha and let de la Usama weather Utah well, and
undoubtedly when it came to this aspect of understanding the eventuality of death and that person has to move on the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had the most prominent of indications from Allah subhanho wa Taala Welcome
to cornea markeaton Allah.
Allah Allah alayhi wa sallam. There are many verses of the Quran that indicate the fact that the messenger sallallahu Sallam is a human and he is a mortal and that he will also have to move on like every other human and mortal. One Mohammedan verschuren lysekil bursary and Jaco to her own lane second hi Jerry. nominee Vanessa with Abu hanifa Rahim Allah said that surely Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam is a human but he is not the average human is not the common human. He is not the regular human but he is a human. He is a mortal, just like the Ruby and the precious pearls are also a type of stone but it's a gem. It's a precious stone. It's exclusive but yes, it's a stone but it's a
precious stone when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam
Polina and a basher There are numerous verses. So there are verses of the Quran that indicate to the fact that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a mortal, what led him in Al Bashir Sophia mode. And soon at some point, he will also contend with death itself the pangs of death and leaving this mundane world and moving on to the next. So in Arabic we use the phrase into call, which literally means transfer transfer. And that's that gives us a great message that we've commenced our journey. Humans we have begun in points but we have no ending. We only transfer into different phases and stages, but we don't have an ending. So yes, we have a beginning and insanity no minute
Dalai Lama can say
there was a time that had passed over man he was nothing worthy of mentioned there was, there is a beginning point to each one of us. But then we just move on and on in different phases and stages, and we evolve and interCall, which is literally a transfer that takes place.
While awkward for him and never you Salalah alayhi wasallam in Belleville yati era Johnnie Walker the shadow sallallahu alayhi wasallam v. Walker, the shadow sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If at the minute, a hadith is in the lobby of it, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had had clearly understood the hint released in certain verses. And he had also categorically explicitly mentioned and articulated that lesson My time is drawing very, very close. Can you imagine every time he divulge this to the Sahaba? It's not long. It's about time soon. Can you imagine the pain, the anxiety, the uneasiness that gripped the Sahaba no person plans or entertains the death of his
beloved, as much as we all know it has to happen and it will happen, but we just shut down and we don't want to bring in that into our mind. And I often say without fear of contradiction, the love the noble companions possess for the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is more than our combined love for all of our beloved's. So in other words, the love I possess for my mom, my dad, my teachers, my spouse, my children, my siblings, and so on and so forth. A combined version. If you can quantify that form of love and affection that I have for all of my beloved's the love a particular and a single companion or the Allahu anhu had exclusively for the messenger sallallahu
wasallam surpasses our combined love letter Joe Coleman, you may know Nabila he will you will you we'll do a man ha de la hora sudah when O'Connor abana whom one of whom are actually Raja whom.

I'm not going to go into those details.

So some of the ahaadeeth were explicit, and some were implicit as we move on, then we will endeavour to elaborate on those narrations. hypovolaemia should be that bizarrely caminhar in LA Hardman, kebari, sahabah, Agila bachlin, Burson vermogen, probably a lot more than him. So the clear cut the explicit was understood by everyone because it was quite clear it was categoric, it was emphatic, it was explicit. And then there were those that were implicit, there was a subtle hint, there was a gentle message.
And that was only understood by the prominent the great amongst the noble companions of the Allahu taala and whom the likes of Satan Abu Bakr, radi Allahu anhu, the likes of Satan are burned through the Allahu anhu the likes of Satan Ahmad and others, they understood the hymns that were released. So let's first analyze some of the verses of the Quran. So, like I said, Every aspect in the life of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gives us guidance gives us inspiration gives us navigation, and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tragic death is no less in terms of giving us direction, how to manage ourselves in every aspect of our life. Now, one of the many wisdoms that
the messenger sallallahu Sallam was a human and a mortal And that applies to the galaxy of ambia in its entirety, that it allows for the human race to relate to in all aspects of life. So if the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was an angel, like the disbelievers of Makkah, had raised the question, that if he was an angel, that would have been better, that would have been unique, that would have been amazing that would have been peculiar, that would have added to the impression of him being miraculous, etc. But Allah refuted this analysis. Now can I fill out the mela aka young Shona mattina in need?
Lana's Elena Elena Jimenez sama, Malika Rasulullah, that if those who inhabited the earth were angels, we would have sent and deployed an angel on the earth, but those that are inhabiting the earth are humans and mortals and hence we send a prophet and a human and a mortal. So it allows us to find direction, guidance, inspiration in every aspect, including the aspects pertaining to the depth and the days in the build up to the demands of any particular person.
So the first verse that we look at in this regard that speaks about the demands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one ma Mohammedan in Rasul, and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not but a messenger. We need to understand that your Allah is negating the fact that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not a diety. This is the message being conveyed in this idea that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is but a messenger is the greatest of messengers, but that is the cutoff point and we do not elevate his status beyond. So he remains a human and hence we worship a lot we follow the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we worship Allah we do not worship the messenger sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam, that is exactly what they
Russell, he was preceded by many ambia that came prior to him of imata Ocotal. So if he passes on, or he is slain and assassinated in color baton, Allah aka become when you turn on your heels in Colombian Taliban in Caleb to turn to change our code the plural of the word after him, and the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Waylon lil aka minnaar will be to the heels of hell, many people who are not particularly of the ablution to make sure that they wash the heels of the foot in Budo. And remember the feet to be washed is mandatory. So that leaves the deficiency in the form of that negatively impacts the ablution and that that has ripple effects on the prayer. So anyway, f
imata Ocotal if he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passes on a coating on slain or assassinated in Colombia to Allah aka become, will you turn on your backs Romanian kalevala RTP following Ebola, if anybody turns on his back, then he will not harm a law in the least. So this is a repeated message of the Quran. And we need to realize this year that by me engaging in an act of worship, I'm only benefiting myself I cannot harm Allah in any way felon, land comes for emphasis your daughter to harm Allah Shane and Nikita you cannot harm Allah. If you turn apostate, you abandon the message, you turn around and you say, Well, you know what the prophet has moved on. So I can also change my
way. You've only harmed yourself and you cannot harm Allah in any way. What's a de la vous, Shakira and Jessa Yahtzee Allah will compensate those that are grateful. Now we know in the backdrop of this ayah respected listeners that this verse was revealed in the context of the of the campaign have offered in the foot Jews, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about it in Sudan earlier Imran in great detail, when it rumor was circulated about the demands of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and can you imagine the panic it created in the ranks of Sahaba that they are present in the campaign, there is infiltration of the enemy, given the fact that the post which was occupied and
manned by 50 Sahaba and the under the auspices of Abdullayev Najib era, the Allahu taala Ando and there was a misunderstanding, there was a misunderstanding, and they moved and Holly dibner Waleed who was not about the Allahu anhu at that time, and that's precisely the words captured into Siddharth money by Allah Masha Ramadan withmany Rahim Allah. It says Holly who lead the great general who was not radi Allahu anhu at that time was such an amazing expression. So I'm just mimicking those precise words. He sees the niche and he infiltrates and obviously the entire landscape of the battle turns differently. And then Musab Ebner Ahmed, who resemble the features of
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was slain. And then the rumor was circulated about the demands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this created much panic amongst the noble companions of the Allahu taala. And, and we know the great detail, I don't want to go on to it because I want to progress and focus on the Marvel wafaa and then the verses were revealed, while Mr. Mohammed was in law school after it. Subsequently they realized that the messengers Allison was alive and he was breathing. And of course, he was the nurse and attended by the Sahaba. And can you imagine the joy that he brought my word Can you imagine if somebody tells you come to the clinic?
You know what, it's critical, I don't know. You entertain the worse. As you get in, you see in an atmosphere of Samba and
sadness. And people are dropping the head and the surgeon walking out, and probably a cloth being covered. And then you realize there's movement, there's activity, and you know what? back onto the ventilator, and he or she recovers. And there are, there are incidents I know of a good friend of mine whose mom had taken ill, and we went to visit her. And, you know, I found him back abroad in Canada. And I said, you know, what, booked your flight and come as early as possible, and Alhamdulillah, she recovered, and it's a good five years, and she's still, you know, what? stable and active and healthy and moving on. So the joy person would anticipate is just something you
cannot capture in words, can you imagine the room have been circulated, and this is creating quite a bit of anxiety and easiness. And then after you get you, you, you, you, you know,
lay your eyes on the blessed being of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam, what an invigoration of life, what a sense of ecstasy, happiness, and jubilation that would have gripped the Sahaba on realizing that the fact or realizing that the messenger sallallahu Sallam was alive. So the scholars have to tell us that sometimes things happen in life. And it prepares you for the inevitable. So at this stage, it was not actual, it was not real. There was a scare, there was a fear, there was a panic, there was a rumor, but hang on, this was now creating the scenario of the absolute day when it's going to happen. And sometimes a person says I need to draw my world and it doesn't happen. And
then suddenly, you know, he takes in and then he's in the clinic and he says, Listen, I think I need to sit down and draw my world. And yes, he throws the wall and hamdulillah he recovers, and we all good and we happy and we relax. And then when the time actually happens, we realize that the previous incident, somewhat mentally prepared us no human can be totally prepared for the demise of his or her beloved, leave alone. Any human you cannot even imagine when it comes to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam calling for to be a member to be right for Allah Allahu taala. In Haverhill, Rasul Allah, he said
to me, how will I know who Yeti boo tamasak Bhima rasuluh we're in for Kedah. rasuluh be Moulton. Oh, Katelyn. So Allah has informed us via this revelation, that the messages are not to remain eternally perpetually on Mother Earth, they will move on, and in the event of the death or the demise, or the tragic assassination of a prophet, because we know Satan a Salatu. Salam was among those ambia that were assassinated. And not only yahaya felly Matata to Luna ambia Allah him in public, why do you choose to slay the prophets previously? In fact, some some narrations have messaged mentioned that at times in Bani Israel on one day, multiple ambia were assassinated. So the
message given day is that in the demands of the messenger sallallahu Sallam or any Prophet, continue the message, continue holding on, you cannot lose your drive and your, your, your commitment to the cause.
When when say the naramata, the Allahu anhu passed on,
some Sahaba was sitting and they wouldn't eat. So above the line who passed by? And he said, What's the matter? And he said, Well, you know, it's so sad. It's so depressing.
That the man like Amara Delano had passed on and we don't have a drive of life and how do we move on? And save now I've done I've now busted Yes, we can understand but after the demise of NaVi Salalah ism life continued, hence life will not halt at the demands of any person. The second verse of the Quran in NACA may you do in whom may you tune in next May you tune in
just some linguistic understanding here and as I mentioned in Madeira Catonsville under this ayah that woman in May two in a row when in Arabic, a person who is alive is referred to as may yet while may turn refers to a person who has moved on Matan, BIT bit of faith and be tested. Those are the two different, you know, expressions of the words. So in May you don't, we're in the home, maybe you don't, you will use the phrase making it on a person who's living and will pass away. And
grammatically, linguistically, from the Arabic perspective, a person who has moved on who has passed away his main tone is Matan. And maybe it refers to someone, a man say your mood who will pass on. So one of the one of the false hopes and baseless arguments of the infidels of Mecca was, Well, you know what this man will run his cause and then it's over. He's gonna pass away and then we're done with him. So it's fine ladies.
Let him preach what he needs to preach. He passed away and then the chapter is closed. So Allah subhanho wa Taala refuted this argument of this and Allah counted this argument in many verses of the Quran as the emitter for human Hollywood. So Mohammed says, if you're gonna pass on, are they going to live beyond naturopaths will be here. Soon, we are awaiting his death. Allah responded in this verse in NACA, may you turn we're in omega tune on Mohammed Salah lrsm you will pass on and so well, they also pass on. So that's the second verse of the Quran. And surely these were explicit verses in an explicit mention about the fact that the number of Allah sallallahu wasallam will will
pass away. You know, inevitably if McAfee Rahim Allah writes, having an Iron Man and the lady is touch hedeby Hasidic or the Allahu anhu in the motive Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had the Hakata nurse who Mota Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
That amongst the many proof that Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu had presented to the congregation of Sahaba and the people of Medina and the Muslims at that time was these verses, and people had to then accept that what Abubakar was saying was the Absolute Truth. So Abubakar was the most attached, yet he was the most composed, he was the most composed, and each person reacts differently. And I think yeah, we also learn something different is that on the demands of a beloved, some cry with tears, some cry within, some would would would yell, some would probably spit blood out, some would move into isolation, someone would become louder in the approach, so one cannot frown on the other.
each one's approach and expression is different. While we salute and respect the outburst of all the Sahaba in the emotion and say the naramata the Allahu anhu. In particular, we have to give tribute to say that Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu that it was his balance, his composure, his calmness, his maturity that rescued the oma at this volatile time. It was Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu and inshallah the Allahu anhu said, under whom Mirza you know, it's a narration it appears in higher to Sahaba whom Mirza era that the noble companions appeared to be like wet sheep appear to be like wet sheep in a forest infested with predators. Look at the description and I don't want to go into too much
detail. She said that the noble companions radi Allahu anhu appeared to be like wet sheep in a forest infested with predators. So they were so confused and perplexed given the tragic demise. And yet again, it was Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu, whose maturity and calmness rescued the oma. So if I could deduce a message from your as we move on discussing the fatal illness of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, that in an occasion where somebody
is about to pass away, probably a person needs to be taken off the ventilator, there's emotion, there's crying this tear in this confusion, people are still grappling is this real or true? We always need at that time in Abu Bakar to come to the aid of that family who needs to come and take a decisive stance and help and assert assist and engage in the in the need of the hour. So
if nicotine says that this was also one of the verses that
say not Abu Bakr, radi Allahu anhu, presented to the Sahaba to establish the fact that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had passed on. I'll leave you with this last poem and we'll conclude our first segment of today, where Satan and evil the Allahu anhu said, well enough Tikka de la Hayden, by the word hate one narration and the other narration were enough data D Fatima, ba, de Luna Allah Allah do mahalo, the fact that I lost the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and six months they after I lost fatty model the Allah Allah is allowed testimony to the fact that no human is here to live forever. If death came upon the most blessed soul, then surely none of us would be spared. We
ask Allah to make us amongst those people who can study and understand the impeccable legacy of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam so that we could draw lessons from his birth, his life and his death, or suddenly Allahumma salli ala nabina, Muhammad Ali, he was happy Hmm, well hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen
