Passing and Burial of Prophet Muhammad

Passing and Burial of Prophet Muhammad


In Sahih Muslim, there is a renowned custom described by Ibn 'Abbas saying:

Three days before the Prophet's passing, 'Umar ibn al­Khattab and different associates were available close by. The Prophet stated, "Presently let me compose something for you whereby you will not go off to some far away place after me." 'Umar stated, "The Prophet is overwhelmed by disease; you have the Qur'an, the Book of Allah, which is adequate for us."

Passing and Burial of Prophet Muhammad

'Umar's announcement caused a disturbance among those present. Some were stating that the Prophet's order ought to be obeyed with the goal that he may compose whatever he wanted to compose for their direction. Others sided with'Umar. At the point when the pressure and hubbub escalated, the Prophet stated, "Escape from me!" Therefore, Ibn 'Abbas used to state, "It was a hopeless, totally hopeless, event that the contention of conclusion and commotion made by the individuals came in the method for the Prophet's composing a will and, as a result of it, the Prophet couldn't abandon what he needed to write down."

Sa'eed ibn Jubayr's account is subsequently recorded in Sahih Bukhari:

Ibn 'Abbas stated, "What a hopeless day it was that Thursday!," and he sobbed so harshly that the stones lying there got wet with his tears. At that point he proceeded, When on a Thursday, the Prophet's ailment heightened, he stated, 'Get me the things to compose with so I may compose something by which you may never be misinformed after me.' People varied and fought about the issue, in spite of the fact that quarreling within the sight of the Prophet was tasteless. Individuals said that the Prophet was talking in incoherence. The Prophet shouted out, 'Leave from me! I am more solid than you are."'

It is expressed in Rawdatul-ahbab that the Prophet said to Fatimah, "Carry your children to me." Fatimah brought Hasan and Husain to the Prophet. Them two welcomed the Prophet, sat close by and sobbed at seeing the misery of the Prophet in such a way, that the individuals who saw them sobbing couldn't hold their tears. Hasan rested his face upon the Prophet's face and Husain rested his head upon the Prophet's chest.

The Prophet opened his eyes and kissed his grandsons affectionately, urging the individuals to love and regard them. In another custom, it is expressed that the friends who were available there, having seen Hasan and Husain sob, sobbed so noisily that the Prophet himself couldn't hold his tears at their pain. At that point he stated, "Call my darling sibling 'Ali to me." 'Ali came in and sat close to the leader of the Prophet. At the point when the Prophet lifted his head, 'Ali moved to the side and, holding the Prophet's head, he rested it, on his own lap. The Prophet at that point stated:

"O 'Ali! I have taken a specific sum from someone or other Jew for the consumption on Usamah's military. See that you reimburse it. What's more, O 'Ali! You will be the main individual to contact me at the great supply of al-Kawthar. You will likewise be given a great deal of difficulty after my passing. You should bear it quietly and when you see that the individuals incline toward the desire of this world, you ought to favor the great beyond."

Coming up next is cited in Khasa' is of Nasa' I from Ummu Salamah:

"By Allah, the nearest individual [to the Prophet] at the hour of the Prophet's passing was 'Ali. Right off the bat the morning of the day when he was going to pass on, the Prophet called 'Ali who had been conveyed on some task. He requested 'Ali multiple times before his arrival. Nonetheless, 'Ali preceded dawn. Along these lines, feeling that the Prophet required some security with 'Ali, we turned out. I was the last to be out; in this manner, I sat nearer to the entryway than different ladies. I saw that 'Ali brought down his head towards the Prophet and the Prophet continued murmuring into his ears (for at some point). Accordingly, 'Ali is the main individual who was close to the Prophet till the last."

Al-Hakim, besides, comments in his Mustadrak that:

"the Prophet continued trusting in 'Ali till the hour of his passing. At that point he inhaled his last."

Ibn al-Wardi calls attention to that the people who were liable for giving the Prophet his memorial service shower were:

"Ali, Abbas, Fadhl Qutham, Usamah and Shaqran. Abbas, Fadhl and Qutham turned the body. Usamah and Shaqran poured water, and Ali washed the body."

Tarikh al-Khamis includes the accompanying:

"Abbas, Fadhl and Qutham diverted the body from one side to the next as Usamah and Shaqran poured water over it. Every one of them were visually impaired collapsed."

Ibn Sa'd portrays the accompanying in his Tabaqat:

"Ali portrayed that the Prophet had so ordered that in the event that anybody with the exception of himself (Ali) had given him the burial service shower, he would have gone visually impaired."

'Abdul-Barr, in his book Al-Isti'ab, cites 'Abdullah ibn 'Abbas as saying: "Ali had four such extraordinary distinctions shockingly as none of us had:

• Of the considerable number of Arabs and non-Arabs, he was the first to have the qualification of saying supplications with the Prophet.

• In all the fights wherein he took an interest, only he grasped the Prophet's standard.

• When individuals fled from the front lines disregarding the Prophet, 'Ali ibn Abi Talib stood immovably by the Prophet's side.

• Ali is the main individual who gave the Prophet his memorial service shower and brought down him in his grave."

Both Abul-Fida' and Ibn al-Wardi show that the Prophet passed on Monday and was covered the following day, for example Tuesday. What's more, in one custom, it is said that he was covered in the night among Tuesday and Wednesday. This seems, by all accounts, to be progressively truthful. However, as indicated by some others, he was not covered for three days after his demise.

In Tarikh-al-Khamis, in any case, it is referenced that Muhammad ikn Ishaq expressed the accompanying:

"The Prophet kicked the bucket on Monday and was covered the evening of Wednesday."

Assessing his age, Abul-Fida' composes:

"Despite the fact that there is a distinction of sentiment about the Prophet's age, yet determined from well known customs, he seems to have lived for a long time."

The Holy Prophet withdrew from this world on the 28th of Safar, 11 A.H. Subsequently finished the life of the Final Prophet sent.
