Tawaffaitani: ‘You caused me to die’


عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رضى اللّٰهُ عنهما قَالَ خَطَبَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم فَقَالَ: إِنَّكُمْ مَحْشُورُونَ إِلَى اللّٰهِ حُفَاةً عُرَاةً غُرْلاً ‏{‏كَمَا بَدَأْنَا أَوَّلَ خَلْقٍ نُعِيدُهُ وَعْدًا عَلَيْنَا إِنَّا كُنَّا فَاعِلِينَ‏}‏ ثُمَّ إِنَّ أَوَّلَ مَنْ يُكْسَى يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ إِبْرَاهِيمُ، أَلاَ إِنَّهُ يُجَاءُ بِرِجَالٍ مِنْ أُمَّتِي، فَيُؤْخَذُ بِهِمْ ذَاتَ الشّمَالِ، فَأَقُولُ يَا رَبّ أَصْحَابِي فَيُقَالُ لاَ تَدْرِي مَا أَحْدَثُوا بَعْدَكَ فَأَقُولُ كَمَا قَالَ الْعَبْدُ الصَّالِحُ ‏{‏وَكُنْتُ عَلَيْهِمْ شَهِيدًا مَا دُمْتُ‏}‏ إِلَى قَوْلِهِ ‏{‏شَهِيدٌ‏}‏ فَيُقَالُ إِنَّ هَؤُلاَءِ لَمْ يَزَالُوا مُرْتَدّينَ عَلَى أَعْقَابِهِمْ مُنْذُ فَارَقْتَهُمْ‏‏.‏

It is narrated by Hazrat Ibn Abbasra that, “The Prophetsa delivered a sermon and said, ‘You [people] will be gathered before Allah [on the Day of Resurrection] bare-footed, naked and uncircumcised.’ [The Prophetsa then recited:] ‘‘As We began the first creation, so shall We repeat it – a promise [binding] upon Us; We shall certainly perform it.’’ [Surah al-Anbiya’, 21:105] [He then added,] ‘The first man who will be dressed on the Day of Resurrection, will be Abraham. Lo! Some men from my followers will be brought and taken towards the left side, whereupon I will say, ‘O Lord, [these are] my companions!’ It will be said, ‘You do not know what innovations they introduced [into the religion] after you.’ I will then say, as the righteous pious servant, Jesus[as], said, ‘I was a witness over them as long as I remained among them […] (to His statement) […] Thou art Witness over all things.’ [Surah al-Ma’idah, Ch. 5: V. 118] Then it will be said, ‘(O Muhammad!) These people never stopped to apostate since you left them.’’”
