Dr. Farhan Abdul Azeez: One Deed (Video)
You know, Subhan’ Allah brothers and sisters, you know when the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Salaam fell sick and he was in his last moments he was; Aisha his wife narrates that was lying down with his head between her chin and her chest and in his last moments, he raised his hand and he said, ‘O Allah, I ask You for companionship with the Highest,’ meaning, I ask you for companionship with You; I wanna be your companion. Right, now Aisha says that when he Sallallahu Assalam says this, she knew that he had chosen to go to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala and not stay in this world. And when he passed away, the Ummah fell into a state of confusion and chaos. Like, no one knew what to do. ‘Uthman, he couldn’t even speak, he couldn’t even speak; the narration says he couldn’t even speak. He sat down in the house of Fatimah; in his home. Umar Ibn Al Khattab (ra) he actually stood up in front of the companions in Masjid Nabawi and he pulled out his sword and he said, ‘whoever says, whoever claims that Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam has died, I will kill him with this sword of mine! He hasn’t died; he hasn’t died; he will never die!’
Abu Bakr, when he heard the news that the Messenger of Allah passed away, he came, he was out of town, he came into Medina, and he came into the masjid, and he , you know, he went into the room of Aisha (his daughter) where the messenger passed away. And the Messenger of Allah, he found him with his face covered, and he uncovered his face and he kissed him on the forehead and he said that, ‘you will die the death that Allah has written for you and Allah will never cause you to die twice; you’ve passed away.’ Then he comes out, he finds Umar addressing the people and he says, ‘Umar, sit down; stop.’ And Umar didn’t listen in his emotional state that he was in (ra). then Abu Bakr begins addressing the crowd, and the people gravitate towards Abu Bakr (ra), and he says, he says that, ‘whoever used to worship Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam, know that Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam has passed away, and whoever used to worship Allah, know that Allah is alive and he never dies.’
This woke the companions up from their state of shock, and honestly brothers and sisters; the same can be said for our Ummah right now. That after Ramadan, we just all go back to sleep. It’s as if we forget about Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala; forget about our duties to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala, and the same reminder needs to be given. Whoever used to worship Ramadan, then know that Ramadan has passed; it’s done! Ramadan is over. Eid is now here and we’re done. We’re over with Ramadan. But whoever amongst you used to worship Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala, know that Allah is alive and he never dies.
And that’s my advice to you brothers and sisters; that we continue worshipping Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala, we choose something this Ramadan, we don’t fall into the trap of just, you know, worshipping Allah in Ramadan, but we choose something; at least one thing, maybe more, and we worship Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala throughout Ramadan with this. With that, I close. We ask Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala to give us the Tawfeeq to be amongst those who worship him throughout the year and draw closer to him every single day of our lives until we meet him.
