Glad tidings of martyrdom His passing away at the age of 63


Glad tidings of martyrdom

There is a Hadith in Sahih Bukhari:

Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Anas Bin Malik (May Allah be well pleased with him), he said: The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), Hadhrat Abu Bakr, Hadhrat Umar and Hadhrat Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with them) graced the mountain of Uhud with their presence.  Out of happiness, the mountain started swaying.  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) tapped it with His foot and said: O Uhud! Steady! The Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), 1 Faithful (Siddiq) and 2 martyrs (Shaheed) are on you.  (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith No. 3686)

Frequently, Hadhrat ‘Umar (May Allah be well pleased with him) would supplicate for dying in Madina and for being martyred, as given in this Hadith of Sahih Bukhari:

Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Zaid bin Aslam who narrates on the authority of his father who heard Hadhrat ‘Umar (May Allah be well pleased with him) say:  O Allah!  You grant martyrdom in Your path and give me death in the land of Your Beloved.  (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith No. 1890)

His passing away at the age of 63 – a sign of his close relationship with the Holy Prophet

There is a Hadith in Sahih Muslim:


Hadhrat Mu‘awiyah (May Allah be well pleased with him) said: When the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) passed away into the presence of Allah, His age was 63.  Then Hadhrat Abu Bakr (May Allah be well pleased with him) passed away, his age was also 63.  Then Hadhrat Umar (May Allah be well pleased with him) passed away and his age was also 63 years.  (Sahih Muslim, Hadith No. 3244)
