Narrated Ibn Abbas:
bin Al-Khattab used to let Ibn Abbas sit beside him, so 'AbdurRahman bin
'Auf said to 'Umar, "We have sons similar to him." 'Umar
replied, "(I respect him) because of his status that you know."
'Umar then asked Ibn 'Abbas about the meaning of this Holy Verse:--
"When comes the help of Allah and the conquest of
. . ." (110.1)
replied, "That indicated the death of Allah's Apostle which Allah
informed him of." 'Umar
said, "I do not understand of it except what you understand."
'Aisha: The Prophet in his ailment in which he died, used to say, "O
I still feel the pain caused by the
food I ate at Khaibar, and at this
time, I feel as if my aorta is being cut from that poison."
From Bukhari's Hadith 3.786:
Anas bin Malik: A Jewess
brought a poisoned (cooked) sheep for the Prophet who ate from it. She was
brought to the Prophet and he was asked, "Shall we kill her?" He
said, "No." I
continued to see the effect of the poison on the palate of the mouth of
needs to be investigated here are the circumstances of Muhammad's death.
The Jews were planning to murder him.
The Jews believed that a real prophet would be forewarned of their
deed but an impostor wouldn't be warned by God.
The Muslims also believed this; the other Muslim who died said that
he didn't think Muhammad would eat of something that was poisoned (see
quote in A6).
Jews were right, Muhammad did eat of the poison, and did die from it.
They proved, according to their test, that Muhammad was not a
prophet. As they said (quote
wanted to know if you were a liar in which case we would get rid of you,
and if you are a prophet then the poison would not harm you."
Jews were convinced that a real prophet would know what was going on.
In this case Muhammad didn't know.
Only after Muhammad ate from the lamb did the lamb "talk to
him". I don't think that
that was anything miraculous in itself; even the other Muslim knew it was
bad before Muhammad ate from it. Most
adults know when they are eating something that is bad.
So for Muhammad to say the sheep "talked" to him is not
prophetic at all. Even a child
spits out bad tasting food.
times previously, Muhammad claimed to have had "revelations"
that warned him of danger. He
even used one of these convenient "revelations" as grounds to
attack the Jewish settlement of Banu Nadhir.
Yet at Khaibar the revelation came too late:
too late to save his own life, too late to save Bishr's life.
his illness wore on, Muhammad began to pray for healing – he even rubbed
his “healing” hand upon himself. Gabriel
also got into the act and prayed for his healing
(see quotes C2 & C3). Muhammad
even got himself "cupped" (the best of all medicines!), (quote
A5). Obviously, at this point
in time, Muhammad wanted to be healed.
it didn't help. As it
progressively got worse, Muhammad realized that he was dying, ceased
praying for healing (quote C4), and claimed that Allah had given him a
choice to going to
, or living on earth. Muhammad
said he then wanted to go to
. Knowing the game was up, he
made the best out of a failed situation.
earlier premonitions of his deaths read more like the cosmic words of a
mystic. Nothing definite is
ever said about them until after his approaching death.
Perhaps he had seen this type of death before and knew the outcome.
It doesn't take a prophet or a "revelation" to know that
death is near.
basic point is this: the Jews
proved that Muhammad was not a real prophet.
He ingested the poison, so did at least one of his followers.
He attempted to be healed, he tried his medicine, and his form of
“laying on of hands”, his prayer, Aisha’s prayer, and even
Gabriel’s prayer, but in the end, he died from the poison.
to Ayesha (r.a.), Muhammad (pbuh) expired at night-time. When he was dying
there was no oil in the lamp and his wife Ayesha (r.a.) had to borrow oil
for the lamp.
The way a MAITREYA would pass away would be when he
would have gained total insight and he knows the time he will die. Read
the Dhammapadha and Gospel of Buddha completely. You shall know the
Maitreya is nowhere is said to have a WIFE or slave girls. The maitreya
will abstain from all material pleasures and will die at highest point of
enlightenment. Have a look at this hadith which describes how Muhammad
7, Book 62, Number 144:
that during his fatal ailment, Allah's Apostle, used to ask his wives,
"Where shall I stay tomorrow? Where shall I stay tomorrow?" He
was looking forward to Aisha's turn. So all his wives allowed him to stay
where he wished, and he stayed at 'Aisha's house till he died there. 'Aisha
added: He died on the day of my usual turn at my house. Allah took him
unto Him while his head was between
my chest and my neck and his saliva was mixed with my saliva.
One could interpret that he was
fondling and mouthing ayesha when he fell dead. A Materialistic person
Muhammad cannot be termed as MAITREYA.
to Anas (r.a.), Muhammad (pbuh) looked exceedingly bright in the night of
this one is true. That is what Anas told narrated. But Buddha never said
that when Maitreya dies, he will shine brightly. You can refer to the
stated verse regarding Maitreya told by Buddha.
vi) After the burial of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
he was never seen again in his bodily form on this earth.
this statement does not match with what Buddha exactly said. Buddha said :
“..in the night in which he passes finally away in
that ultra passing which leaves nothing whatever of his earthly
existence to remain”
means that the Maitreya will not leave even a trace of his existence on
earth and will totally demise. But Muhammad has his clothes, swords,
letters, footprints, dead body in his grave, etc. left behind. The
Maitreya is not said to have a grave or a mosque.
