Last words of Prophet Mohammad (s)
By: Abd An-Nabi
In memory of the demise of Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) and
his -grand child -Imam Hassan's (peace be upon him) on 28th day of
Historians mentioned that the generous prophet (peace be upon him)
called one of his followers in the last days of Safar and asked him to
join him to Al Baqeea. He told him: I have been ordered to ask for
absolution for people of al Baqeea, so come with me tonight.
At night they walked out together and there the prophet gave his peace
to the graves then he told the lad: I have been asked to choose
between the keys of this world's treasures, eternity and heaven or to
meet my God and heaven. So I chose to meet my God and heaven).
His lad said: I ransom you by my parents that you choose the keys of
this world's treasures, eternity and heaven.
Prophet said: No, Moweyheba's father, I swear by Allah I choose to
meet my God and heaven, and then he prayed for the absolution for
people of Al Baqeea (graves) and then he returned back.
After hours and in a mass of people, the prophet (peace be upon him)
entered the mosque with his head tightened with a piece of clothes
because he had fever.
He sat on the tribune, praised and thanked Allah, and then he said:
(Allah gave a choice for one of his slaves to choose between dunya and
what he has, so he chose what Allah has.).
Then he stopped talking and all the people remained silent and bowed
their heads. He followed up his speech and in his thought was what he
planned for the battle against the Romans by mobilizing a big army in
the leadership of Usama ben Zayd, who was eighteen years old. He
ordered his companions and the rest of the muslims to follow him by
saying: oh people, I'm ordering you to follow Usama's army. Then he
remained silent and his temperature was rising.
Afterwards, he said: (People, I thank Allah that I will die soon, if I
have whipped any body this is my back for chastening, and if I have
taken any body's money this is my money. And I will be pleased and
happy if any one takes his right from me. Don’t say you're afraid of
al rasool's hatred, because hatred is not of my nature. I love the
most he who takes his right from me, or forgives me so I meet Allah
with a pure soul…)
Then he came down from the tribune, prayed, and then waited for the
response from the people who were confused about his request (Peace be
upon him) since he was perfect and Allah praised him for being a great
Suddenly, a troubled man told the prophet that one day his whip by
mistake hit the man's back.
So the last prophet (peace be upon him) uncovered his back and asked
the man to take his right from him.
In people's amazement, the man walked toward the prophet and kissed
the ‘seal of prophet-hood’ on the back of prophet and that was the
last time his body touched the prophet's body.
After that, the prophet entered his house to meet Allah.
It was a very sad departure, and Ahlu Al Byet asked us to remember his
loss whenever we face a problem in our life. Imam Baqer said: (If you
had a trouble concerning your body or money, you should remember the
causality of losing the prophet, for creatures have no worse disaster.
O Prophet! What happened after your departure?
Prophet! Zahra, your part of body,
shall be injured by the door.
Ali, your brother like Harun to Moses,
shall be martyred on Masjid e Kufa's floor.
Hassan, your fountain of love,
will be sprinkled with arrows,
on his funeral.
Zainab, whom you named with love,
shall witness the greatest tragedy of life.
Hussain, who played with your hair,
shall be lying on Naynawa's sand,
with spears piercing his chest.
Ah . . . Don't leave O' Prophet,
your household shall see no bliss.
better than wealth because it protects you while you have to
guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the
more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you
get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but
what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."MORE
