Prophet Muhammad Pbuh & His Family
The twenty eighth of Safar marks the death anniversary of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh&his family), and upon his death, Allah’s revelations from the sky came to a standstill and one of the people’s two safeguards was lost, for Allah says: “But Allah was not going to chastise them while you were among them, nor is Allah going to chastise them while yet they ask for forgiveness.” (08:33).
The Messenger of Allah (pbuh&his family) was an entity filled with light, good, and mercy. He carried a message and enjoyed morals that were incomparable to any other morals. As we commemorate his death anniversary, we cannot but remember the big concern he shouldered as he was on the verge of death, so he bequeathed what he cared for most. He did not bequeath money, or material wealth to the close ones, but rather he bequeathed Islam; the religion he exerted every effort for protecting and sought that the Muslims do not weaken it by their fanaticisms, spites, or ignorance. Thus, he (pbuh&his family) stood in his farewell pilgrimage, on the day of slaughter in Mina, and addressed the people saying: “O people, your blood, money, and honor are sacred to you till you shall meet your Lord, as sacred as this very city, this very day and this very month…Do not return after my death into disbelievers beheading one another…”
Because the Messenger of Allah (pbuh&his family.) knew in advance that the Muslims after him will fight one another, disagree amongst each other, accuse one another of disbelief, and set traps for each other, he wanted this will to be the last thing people hear from him and be aware of, knowing that most people performed pilgrimage with the Messenger of Allah (pbuh&his family) at that time
