*AND THAT SUNNAH TO OPT FOR AKHIRAH OVER THE RULE OF DUNYA?*

*The beloved prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam was the ‘’Mercy of the universe.’’ So the deen that he traced the road on this earth was to flood the earth with the rule of Islam. He predicted an Islamic empire that would conquer the land of Rome, Iran, Iraq, Palestine, Africa and Asia. And yet when Islam reached only the limits of Arabian peninsula that Allah Ta`ala gave him the option of staying in this world or join Allah Ta`ala.*
*Remember that at this point of time, Islam was about to spread outside the birth land of the prophet Muhammad: The Arabian peninsula. But at this particular junction, Allah Ta`ala proposed him to come over in the dimension of Akhirah. And he answered positively to this call. He was conscience that this choice of his means that he would leave his inseparable daughter, Fatimah; also his wives, including his young and most favourite, Aisha r.a; his companions including Abu Bakr r.a. and finally the leadership of the to be born Islamic empire. And yet he chose to meet Allah Ta`ala and be in the blessings of Akhirah. In it, is a great lesson for us. In it is a sunnah to be followed.*
عن أبي سعيد الخدري رضي الله عنه
أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم جلس على المنبر فقال إن عبدا خيره الله بين أن يؤتيه من زهرة الدنيا ما شاء وبين ما عنده فاختار ما عنده فبكى أبو بكر وقال فديناك بآبائنا وأمهاتنا فعجبنا له وقال الناس انظروا إلى هذا الشيخ يخبر رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم عن عبد خيره الله بين أن يؤتيه من زهرة الدنيا وبين ما عنده وهو يقول فديناك بآبائنا وأمهاتنا فكان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم هو المخير وكان أبو بكر هو أعلمنا به وقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إن من أمن الناس علي في صحبته وماله أبا بكر ولو كنت متخذا خليلا من أمتي لاتخذت أبا بكر إلا خلة الإسلام لا يبقين في المسجد خوخة إلا خوخة أبي بكر
بخاري

*The above hadith of Bukhari explains that Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam sat on mimbar and said: A servant has been given the choice of either all the favours of this world or whatever by Allah, so he has chosen whatever by Allah. On that answer Abu Bakr r.a. cried loudly and profusely. Some sahabahs r.a. did not understand that the servant was referred to the prophet himself. Only Abu Bakr r.a. understood. That is why, there was no man in front of Rasouloullah SAW who knew more of the intent wordings of Rasouloullah better than Abu Bakr. So the prophet ordered a new world order to close all doors and windows on the direct walls of the Masjid An Nabawi and ordered that only and only Abu Bakr`s door be left intact.*
*A prestige, a laureate that will have no equal until the last day. Until today, the door of Abu Bakr is still there on the left hand side of Babus Salaam and you will find Abu Bakr r.a. at a hand span from the roza of Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam.*
*A companion in the lifetime of Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam and also after his death. Love affection for the prophet did not finished Abu Bakr to stand hard and rock to promote the Shariah even after the demise of his beloved Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam.*
*Similarly when Hazrat Hussein radiyal hou `anhou left Madinah for Kufah, on his tragic destiny of Karbala, Ibn Umar r.a. came to stop him. He told him these words: ‘’Please don`t go to Iraq(in quest of leadership)! Because when the prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam was given choice between dunya and Akhirah, he chose Akhirah over dunya. And you are wholly(your flesh and your blood) embodied from him directly. (So you also leave the quest for the rule). And you will not achieve that quest dear. (Seeing him dedicated and convinced to go)Then Ibn Umar r.a. hugged him profoundly. And Ibn Umar cried profusely. Then he respectfully accompanied for a while departing hazrat Hussein r.a.(Tahzeebut Tahzeeb-Ibn Hajar; Ibn Katheer-Bidayah; Siyar Nubala)*    

وقال ابن عمر لحسين: لا تخرج، فإن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم خيرة الله بين الدنيا والآخرة، فاختار الآخرة، وإنك بضعة منه ولا تنالها – يعني الدنيا – فاعتنقه، وبكى، وودعه.

*From the ameer to the layman is a lesson for us. Many a times we have to forego a chair, a title, a musallah, a girl, a boy, a job, a carreer, a house, a road path blocked by islamophobia in exchange of a large share in Akhirah.*
*This is a real sunnah of the beloved prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam. A sunnah that will embodied you close to the beloved prophet Muhammad Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam in reality and in your dreams.*
