I ask Allaah to have mercy upon the deceased [from among the] Muslims.
By Allaah, were the hearts sound (pure), they would be saddened at missing out [from goodness to be attained]. How many are the hours which pass by us, and we are prevented from benefitting from them?
Neither Allaah nor His Messenger commanded [us] to observe the days of misfortune for the Prophets and their deaths as a period of mourning – so how about of those other than them?!
From that which I witnessed of my brother, and my Shaykh, Sa’eed ibn ‘Alee Wahf al-Qahtaanee, was that whilst he was sedated in the National Guard Hospital in Jeddah, he was keen on giving da’wah.
