Chapter 147

Supplication when one is disappointed about his Life




 
Hadith 911


Aishah radiyallah anha reported: While the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa was reclining against me (during his last illness) I heard him saying:

"Allahumma-ghfirli, warhamni, wa alhiqni bir Rafiqil-A`la (O Allah, forgive me, bestow Your Mercy on me and let me join with the exalted companions.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


Commentary: Most of the `Ulama' believe that Allah is the Sublime Companion (Ar-Rafiq Al-A`la). Ar-Rafiq (the Companion) is one of the Divine Names. Some take it to mean the supreme communion of angels, Prophets, martyrs and the righteous. Prophet Yusuf (Joseph) had prayed to Allah, "... And join me with the righteous.'' (12:101).

At the hour of death, man should cut off his link with the world and unite it with the Hereafter. By seeking Divine forgiveness, the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa aimed at moral elevation and abundance of goodness. Otherwise, he was protected by Allah and immune against sinning.

Hadith 912


Aishah radiyallah anha reported: I saw the Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa when he was at the point of death. He had a drinking bowl with water in it. He would dip his hand into the bowl, and wipe his face. Then he Sallalahu aleihi wa would supplicate,

"O Allah! Help me over pangs and agony of death.'' [At-Tirmidhi].


Commentary: This Hadith, too, affirms the Prophet's creatural aspect, that is to say, like other humans he was also overwhelmed by the intensity of illness and felt its agony. In his last days, he suffered from intense fever. In order to decrease the high temperature, he repeatedly wet his right hand with water and passed it over his face. Like all mortals, he too, experienced the agony of the last moments and prayed to Allah for its alleviation and sought His Help.

Sheikh Al-Albani considers the authenticity of this Hadith as deficient. However, the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa is authentically reported to have lost consciousness during severe illness. Both the Ahadith of this chapter reveal that man should seek help from Allah at the hour of his departure from this world.
