THE PASSING OF OUR PROPHET (S.A.A.S.)
"During his final days, before his death, our Prophet caught an inflammatory disease and a headache emerged. A hand on the shoulder of Hazrat Abbas, another on Hazrat Ali's, he entered the house of Hazrat Aisha shuffling his feet", meaning he had a hard time walking.
Masha'Allah, look at the revelation our Prophet (s.a.a.s.) received: "God let one of his subjects choose whether he wants earthly blessings" in other words, blessings of this world such as his marriages, his beautiful house, his entourage, his loved ones, "or blessings in the Sight of God" meaning in God's Own Presence, " blessings in the Sight of God and he chose to be with God."
See that he says this in a subtle way, and only Hazrat Abu Bakr (r.a.) understood what he means. Azrael (a.s.) came to our Prophet (s.a.a.s) and told him " if you prefer, I can take your life or you can stay with your Ummah a little longer. Whichever you want."
And our Prophet (s.a.a.s) said, "I prefer being by God's side". But Azrael (a.s.) asks this in a kind way. He says, "I can take your life if you prefer it." He says this in a subtle way. Hazrat Abu Bakr (r.a) figured what he meant and shouted, "May our fathers and mothers be sacrificed in your name!" Our Prophet (s.a.a.s) calmed him down saying, " Calm down, o Abu Bakr!" He realized that Hazrat Abu Bakr figured this from Hazrat Abu Bakr's excitement.
ABU BAKR'S LOVE OF OUR PROPHET (S.A.A.S)
"O people," says our Prophet (s.a.a.s), "for me the most trustworthy one is Abu Bakr with his property and friendship." He gave all his possessions. Their friendship is great. "If I had taken anyone as my closest, I would have surely taken Abu Bakr."
Our Prophet (s.a.a.s) saw him as his closest. "But we are brothers of Islam. I am ahead of you all and I will wait for you. I can already see the Pond Of Abundance." This is from Muslim's collection. This is a blessing Almighty God bestowed upon our Prophet (s.a.a.s). But of course he sees it with the eye of his hearth, it is not possible for him to see otherwise.
"I will wait for you," he says. It is a great blessing for his companions of course, it is really very important to see a prophet. That is why, it would be nice if we have a conversation about the lives of the Companions. It would be as if we've seen the Prophet himself, since historical information is the correct information.
Hazrat Abu Bakr (r.a) told our Prophet (s.a.a.s.) that "O Messenger of God, wherever I look, I see you". He loves the Prophet. "Wherever I look I see you", he says, masha'Allah. He says "you" in a formal way of course.
When our Prophet (s.a.a.s.) passed away, Abu Bakr (r.a.) slowly lifted the cover and kissed his biceps. Our Prophet (s.a.a.s) was very strong. He kissed his forehead again and again, saying "O the pure one, O friend". These are historical facts, these are important.
Do you see that? "If we had the option, we would sacrifice our lives for your sake," he says on our Prophet's death. He says this beside the sacred body of the Messenger of God (s.a.a.s). "If you hadn't forbidden us to do so, we would shed rivers from our eyes." Was there any mourning? There wasn't. If anyone were to cry, it would have been Hazrat Abu Bakr (r.a.), his most beloved. See that he says, "We don't because you forbade us to do so".
THE BURIAL OF OUR PROPHET (S.A.A.S)
The sacred body of our Prophet (s.a.a.w.) was bathed and enshrouded on Tuesday. "Hazrat Ali (r.a), Hazrat Abbas (r.a) and his sons Fazl and Kusem helped bathing the deceased. "
But mostly, it was Hazrat Ali (r.a.) and Hazrat Abbas (r.a). " Osama and Shukran (r.a.) poured water onto him." "They did not take the shirt of our Prophet (s.a.a.w) off." The clothes of prophets are not taken off. They are not undressed completely. That is valid only for the prophets. "He was bathed and enshrouded thrice." Hazrat Ali (r.a.), Hazrat Fadl Osama and Abdurrahman bin Avf put his sacred body into the grave. On the Day of Judgment, first our Prophet (s.a.a.w.) rises and then Hazrat Jesus (pbuh), insha'Allah.
THE APPEARANCE OF OUR PROPHET (S.A.A.S.)
Our Prophet (s.a.a.s.) had large black eyes. The white of his eyes were the whitest and the black of his eyes, the blackest. No man had the power to look into his eyes. He makes a lot of jokes and cheered people up. They could barely look into his eyes this way, for a few seconds. He had a penetrating, really clever gaze. But it is a characteristic only specific to prophets. Hazrat Abraham (pbuh) also has it.
But the wording in some accounts is at fault; they say, "He was neither short, nor tall." Why don't you just say, "he was of average height"? They say, "He was neither fat nor thin." Why don't you say "he had a normal stature"? You could say he had a vibrant, athletic, well-built body. Those who related those accounts used a faulty wording. Such a wording is not acceptable. Write that he was handsome, beautiful, charming, why do you ramble on? "He is neither short nor tall." What does it mean? Is this how you say it? That would be offending for the one who hears you say it. This is a prophet you are talking about, a beautiful being, a sacred man. You might say his height was proportional, average and that's it.
Our Prophet (saas) combed his hair and beard whenever he addressed his community. His hair and beard were bright. He spoke clearly. "He was really handsome and attractive," the accounts state. Charming. He was charming. Every women who saw our Prophet (s.a.a.s.) fell in love with him. There were people who got divorced to marry him.
They won't talk about this because it does not serve their purposes. Our Prophet (s.a.a.s.) was a bit taller than the average, his height was not exactly average. "His head was large." Our Prophet (s.a.a.s) had a majestic head. Prophets have large heads. Hazrat Abraham's (pbuh) head was also large. Also was Hazrat Noah's (pbuh). "His hair was wavy." Slightly wavy. Hazrat Jesus' (pbuh) hair is also like this. "He had a broad, white forehead."
His nose was beautiful. "He had a small nose resembling a falcon's beak." There was a slight protrusion on his nose, like a falcon's. He had a small gentle nose. "He had big eyes, plain cheeks." Not curved. "He had a large mouth." Our Prophet (s.a.a.s.) had plump lower and upper lips.
"His teeth were really white". Very shapely. "They shone like pearls." They were radiant. "His neck was very white, like silver." His neck was also shining, it was really beautiful. His whole body is proportional, in harmony. "He had broad shoulders." His arms, his biceps were also strong. His hands were largish, his fingers long.
His wrists were long and thick. He had a steady and balanced manner of walking, a demure way of walking. When he walked, he did so without any difficulty, as if he walked downhill. When he was happy, a brightness appeared on his face. When he was furious, a vein popped in the middle of his forehead, such as during wars, etc.
Our Prophet (s.a.a.s) established a secret intelligence agency back then, resembling our MIT [Turkish Intelligence Organization]. He sent his men everywhere. There were quite a number of Muslim intelligence agents. Information flowed steadily from all around. This is what they mean when they say that "He is an ear." for our Prophet (s.a.a.s).
