The Calamity Of The Prophets Death And Its Effects On The Muslim Nation by Shaykh Hussain Al-Awaaishah
About the Book
The Prophet (salallahu alaihi wa salam) said, if one of you is afflicted with a calamity, then let him remember his calamity by me (i.e., by my death); for indeed, it is the greatest of calamities.
It becomes clear to us from this hadith that the death of the Prophet is the greatest disaster that has occurred or will occur to the Muslim nation. The Messenger of Allah (salallahu alaihi wa salam) requests that when we remember our calamities or afflictions, we should remember his death and his parting as well, a reflective process through which our other disasters will become insignificant in comparison.
