Our beloved Prophet said to Jabrâil ‘alaihis-salâm’, “I have three wishes from Allahu ta’âlâ: One of them is to allow me to be intercessor for the sinners of my Community, the second is to not torment them due to the sins they have committed in the world and the third is for me to be informed about the deeds of my Community on every Thursday and Monday (If their deeds are good then I shall pray and Allahu ta’âlâ accepts. If they are evil deeds then I intercede and invoke for their being erased from the book of deeds.).” Jabrâil ‘alaihis-salâm’ informed him that Allahu ta’âlâ accepted his three wishes.
Thereupon our beloved Prophet felt relief. Allahu ta’âlâ revealed, “O My Habîb! Who inspired your blessed heart to love and show so much mercy to your Community?” Our Master, the Prophet replied, “My Rabb ta’âlâ who created and edified me.” Then Janâb-i Haqq decreed, “To your Community, My Compassion, My Mercy is one thousand times more than yours. Leave them to me.” Our beloved Prophet said, “Now I am feeling relieved. O Azrâil! Perform your duty that you have been ordered!” In order to perform his duty, Azrâil ‘alaihis-salâm’ approached the Master of the worlds, for the sake of whom he was created. Our beloved Prophet dipped his blessed hands into the water container staying next to him and wiped his wet hands onto his blessed face. He said, “Lâ ilâha illallah! O my Allah! Rafîq-i âlâ!…” Azrâil ‘alaihis-salâm’ started to take the soul of the Master of the worlds. The color of the face of our Master Rasûlullah was sometimes becoming red and sometimes turning yellow. When he said to Azrâil ‘alaihis-salâm,’ “Do you take also the souls of my Community so vehemently and strongly?” Azrâil ‘alaihis-salâm’ replied, “O Rasûlullah! Thus far, I have not taken anybody else’s soul so easily.” Our beloved Prophet who did not forget his Community even at his last moments said, “O Azrâil! Use the violence that you will show my Community on me! For, they are weak and cannot endure…” Then he said, “Lâ ilâha illallah! Rafîq-i âlâ!” His soul was taken and reached to âlâ-i illiyyîn… Assalâtu wassalâmu Alaika O Rasûlullah! Assalâtu wassalâmu Alaika O Habîballah! Assalâtu wassalâmu Alaika O Sayyidal Awwali-na wal-âkhirîn! Intercede O Rasûlullah! Dahiylaq O Rasûlullah!
Jabrâil ‘alaihis-salâm’ bid farewell to our Master, the Prophet, saying, “Assalâmu alaikum O the Messenger of Allahu ta’âlâ! You were my purpose and desire. I will not come to the earth’s surface anymore!” As the blessed soul of our Master Rasûl-i akram ascended to the world above, our mother Hadrat Fâtima and the blessed wives of our Prophet “radiy-Allâhu anhunna” started to cry loudly. At that moment, there was a sound from an unknown source, “Assalâmu alaikum O the Ahl-i bayt! Wa Rahmatullahi wa barakâtuhu,” and recited the 185th âyat-i karîma of the Âl-i Imrân Sûra, which purports, “Know that every living being shall taste death. And on the Day of Judgment, you shall be compensated for your deeds.” Then extended condolences by saying, “Trust in the benevolences and blessings of Allahu ta’âlâ. Entreat Him and hope for help from Him. Do not wail! The real victims of disaster are those deprived of it’s rewards.” All those present, heard of those words and replied to the greeting. It was Hizir ‘alaihis-salâm, that had said those words.’ When signs of death were seen on Rasûl-i akram, Hadrat Umm-i Ayman ‘radiy-Allâhu anh’ sent a message to his son Usâma. Upon receiving this bitter news, Usâma and Hadrat ’Umar and Abû Ubayda left the army and came back to the Masjîd-i Nabawî. When Âisha-i Siddîqa and the other women began to weep, the Ashâb-i kirâm in the Masjîd-i sherîf were confused, confounded, and paralyzed. Hadrat Ali was motionless as if he were dead. Hadrat ’Uthman was speechless. Hadrat Abû Bakr was in his home at that moment. When he arrived at the place, running, he entered the Hujra-i sa’âdat. He opened the veil on the face of Fakhr-i ’âlam, and saw that the Prophet had passed away.
