Sallallahu Sallam when he was calling his uncle, in his final moments on the deathbed come to Islam, say the shahada, c'est la ilaha illAllah. Perhaps this is the word that you need to be with me in Jannah. The Prophet SAW Selim was begging him and he rejected the message and died as a non Muslim in front of his very, I imagine the feeling of our beloved prophet Homosassa because he's uncle are so dear to him. He supported him throughout the message, even though he was a non Muslim. Imagine the impact of this incident on the heart and the mind and the life of our beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim at that time. Imagine with me, my brothers and sisters in Islam, yet he had chosen you to

Appreciate that. And despite all the trials, despite all the difficulties that our beloved prophets have gone through, they remained steadfast. They knew that Islam is more important than blood relations.

But Islam for them was the way until they breathed the last Allah chosen you, my brothers and sisters in Islam appreciate that. And this is an evidence that he loves you.
