On the last day of Rasulullah on earth…
Suddenly, there was a person who said salaam.
"May I come in?" he asked.
But Fatimah did not allow him to enter the room.
"I'm sorry, my father is ill," said Fatimah, and turned back and
closed the door.
She went back to her father who had opened his eyes and he asked
Fatimah, "Who was he, my daughter?"
"I don't know, my father. It's the first time I'm seeing him," Fatimah
Then, Rasulullah (SAW) looked at his daughter with a trembled look, as
if he wanted to recall about every part of his daughter's face.
"Know one thing! He is who erases the temporary pleasure; he is who
separates the companionship in the world.
He is the angel of death," said Rasulullah (SAW).
Fatimah bore the bomb of her cry.
The death angel came toward him, but Rasulullah (SAW) asked why Jibril
did not come along with him.
Then, Jibril was called. Jibril was ready in the sky to welcome the
soul of Habibullah and the leader of the earth.
"O Jibril, explain to me about my rights in front of ALLAH?"
Rasulullah (SAW) asked with a weak voice.
"The doors of the sky have opened; the angels are waiting for your soul.
All jannats are open widely waiting for you," Jibril said.
But, in fact, all that did not make Rasulullah (SAW) relieved. His
eyes were still full of worry.
"You are not happy to hear this news?" asked Jibril.
"Tell me about the destiny of my people in the future?" Rasulullah asked.
"Don't worry, Oh Rasul ALLAH. I heard ALLAH told me: "I make jannat
haram for everyone, except to the people of Muhammad" Jibril said.
It became closer and closer, the time for Malaikat Izrail to do his
work. Slowly, Rasulullah's (SAW) soul was pulled. It seemed that the
body of Rasulullah (SAW) was full of sweat (paseena) ; the nerves of
his neck became tight.
"Jibril, how pain this sakaratul maut is!"
Rasulullah (SAW) uttered a groan slowly. Fatimah closed her eyes, Ali
sat beside her bow deeply and Jibril turned his face back.
"Am I repugnant to you that you turn your face back o Jibril?"
Rasulullah (SAW) asked to the Deliverer of Wahyu.
"Who is the one who could see the Habibullah in his sakaratul maut,"
Not for a while, Rasulullah (SAW) uttered a groan because of unbearable pain.
"O ALLAH, how greatest is this sakaratul maut. Give me all these
pains, don't to my people."
The body of Rasulullah (SAW) became cold, his feet and chest did not
His lips vibrated as if he wanted to say something, Ali took his ear
close to Rasulullah (SAW).
"Uusiikum bis salati, wa maa malakat aimanukum?, take care of the
salat and take care of the weak people among you."
Outside the room, there were cries shouted each other, sahabat held each other.
Fatimah closed her face with her hands and, again, Ali took his ear
close to Rasulullah's (SAW) mouth which became bluish.
"Ummatii, ummatii, ummatii" "My people, my people, my people."
And the life of the noble man ended.
Could we love each other like him? Allahumma salle'ala Muhammad wa
baarik wa salim 'alaihi.
How deep is Rasulullah's (SAW) love to us.
Send this to all your Muslim friends so that the awareness to love
ALLAH and HIS Rasul appears as ALLAH and HIS Rasul loves us –
(Don't worry if people hate you because there are many others who love
and care for you on earth. But be worried if ALLAH hates you because
there is no other who loves and cares for you in akhirat )
