    Imam ash-Shafi'i on his death bed

    :start:

    :salams

    :alhumdull

    Al-Muzni who is Abu lbrahim Isma`il ibn Yahya said:

    "I entered upon ash-Shafi'i during his illness which resulted in his death, so I said to him: 'What is your condition?'
    He replied: "I am journeying from this world, and departing from my brothers, drinking from the cup of death, and upon Allaah - Exalted is His remembrance - arriving.
    And no! By Allaah, I do not know if my soul is travelling towards Paradise or the Fire!"

    Then he started to weep, and he said:

    'In You, the Creator, I raise my longing, And even if I am, O possessor of kindness and generosity, an evildoer, a criminal,

    When my heart became constricted and my paths became narrow,

    I took my hope in Your pardon and forgiveness as an opening and an escape,

    My sins seemed very great to me but when I compared them to Your forgiveness,

    I found Your forgiveness to be greater,

    You are and still remain the only One who can forgive sins,

    You grant and forgive out of Your benevolence and generosity,

    Perhaps the One who is the source of all goodness will forgive and overlook my mistakes,

    And will hide the sins and burden that I accumulated,

    My sins seemed very great to me, so I turned (to You) in humility,

    Were it not for my contentment in you, I wouldn't, O my Lord, have seen any comfort at all,

    So if You forgive me, You would have forgiven a sinner, A rebellious, oppressive tyrant still sinning,

    So my crime is very great, past and present, But Your forgiveness that embraces Your servant is greater and higher,

    So whomsoever holds fast to Allaah is truly saved from mankind, And whomsoever's hopes are in Him, will be far removed from any regrets.'

      "a sinner, A rebellious, oppressive tyrant still sinning"

      Subhan Allah if Imam Shafi'i says this about himself, what is left for us to say about ourselves?

                Subhan'Allah....
                وَالْعَصْرِ

                إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ لَفِي خُسْرٍ

                إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ

                "If Allah (swt) only sent this Surah to us, for the guidance of Mankind, this will be enough for us” - Imam Shaafi'ee r.a.

                "Yeh dunya daar e faani hain, Tum apna dil mat lagaon, Ganimat samaj zinadagee ki bahar, aana na hoga, yahaa baar baar......"

                        words of hope even at his death bed.
                        May Allah have mercy on Imam Shaafi'i.

                          I visited the Mausoleum where he is buried in Cairo a few months ago. It's such a shame the egyptian government make no effort to maintain this beautiful building where one of the greatest Imams is buried (may Allah have mercy on him), but they spend millions on maintaining pharaonic history. Shame on the Egyptian government.

I acknowledge Your favour upon me and I acknowledgemy sin, so forgive me, for verilynone can forgive sin except You.
