leave a comment »

Ibn ‘Abbas (رضي الله عنه) narrates:

‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) asked, “What do you say about,

“When there comes the Help of Allah [to you, O’ Muhammad against your enemies] and the conquest [of Makkah]. And you see that the people enter Allah’ s religion [Islam] in crowds….     (Qur’an 110:1-2)

Some of the said, “We do not know”, and some of the did not say anything. He asked me, “O son of al ‘Abbas (رضي الله عنه), do you say the same?” I said,”No.”  He then asked, “Then what do you say?”

I said, ” It is foretelling the death of Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah. Allah is telling him that when the help of Allah comes and the conquest of Makkah, this is a sign that your death is approaching, so glorify the praises of your Lord and ask His forgiveness, verily He is the one Who accepts repentance and Who forgives.”

‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) said,”This is exactly how I understand it.”

[Sahih Bukhari]
