It was now the eleventh year of the Hijra.Muhammad's mission was already fulfilled , his faith complete and triumphant .

In the month of "Safar" he was seized with fever which steadily increased . The news of his illness encouraged some imposters to set up rival cults and create confusion ,but these soon died their natural death.

On the 26th day of this month , the Prophet rallied and on hearing of some trouble on the borders of Syria and Palistaine,ordered an army to be assembled. He put Usama in command of his force,got up from his sick-bed , put the battle-standard into the hands of Usama and bid farewell to the army .

The Prophet's illness became worse.With the permission of his other wives he moved into Aisha's room .

One day when he felt a little better , he came out and addressed his followers :

"Fear Allah ,I pray you , and may Allah keep you on the right path .

I entrust you to His care.I have warned you of the everlasting bunishment

and given you tidings of everlasting bliss.

O'creatures of Allah ,shun arrogance and pride. Paradise and the blessings of the hereafter are for the humble and the rightous . The resert af the proud is Hell"

On the 12th day of the month of Rabi-ul-Awwal , he lifted up the curtain of his room which overlooked the compound of the mosque and saw the congregation engrossed in prayers . He smiled happily and lay back .

And then his beloved wife Aisha relates ,"I suddenly felt a great heaviness in my lap.Ilooked at him His eyes were glossed over and I heard his last words , "I desire to be with my Allah".

And thus on the 12th day of the month Rabi-ul-Awwal , in the 11th year of the Hijra , when the sun was near its zenith , Muhammed , the Prophet of Islam ,passed away.

May peace be upon him.
