Demise and burial - 2

Although there is a difference of opinion about the Prophet's age, yet calculated from famous traditions, he appears to have lived for 63 years

Al-Hakim, remarks in his Mustadrak that:

 

"the Prophet kept confiding in 'Ali till the time of his death. Then he breathed his last."

 

Ibn al-Wardi points out that the persons who were responsible for giving the Prophet his funeral bath were:

 

"Ali, Abbas, Fadhl Qutham, Usamah and Shaqran. Abbas, Fadhl and Qutham turned the body. Usamah and Shaqran poured water, and Ali washed the body."

 

 

 "Although there is a difference of opinion about the Prophet's age, yet calculated from famous traditions, he appears to have lived for 63 years."

 

The Holy Prophet departed from this world on the 28th of Safar, 11 A.H. Thus ended the life of the Final Prophet sent.

 

as a witness and a bringer of glad tidings, a warner and a summoner unto Allah by His permission, and a lamp that gives light (Qur'an, 33:45-46)

 

the one who was sent as a mercy and blessing to mankind (Qur'an, 21:10)

 

He left the temporal world, but the message he brought to mankind is eternal.

 

Now has come unto you light from Allah and a clear book whereby Allah guides him who seeks His pleasure unto the paths ofpeace. He brings them out of the darkness into the light by His decree and guides them unto a straight path. (Qur'an, 5:16)

 

A Book which We have revealed to you (O Muhammad!) so that you may thereby bring forth mankind from darkness unto the light, by the permission of their Lord, unto the path of Him, the Exalted in power, the One worthy of all praise. (Qur'an, 14:2)

 

O people! There has come to you an admonition from your Lord which is a healing for what is in the breasts, and a guidance and mercy for the believers. (Qur'an, 10:57)

 

Accept what the Messenger gives you and stay away from whatever he forbids you. (Qur'an, 59:7)
