CHAPTER: HE WHO ACCEPTS ISLAM AT THE DEATH-BED, BEFORE THE ACTUAL AGONY OF DEATH, IS A MUSLIM IT IS FORBIDDEN TO SUPPLICATE BLESSINGS FOR THE POLYTHEISTS. HE WHO DIES AS A POLYTHEIST IS ONE AMONG THE DENIZENS OF HELL AND NO MEANS WOULD BE EFFECTIVE ENOUGH TO GET HIM OUT OF THAT  

No. 36

It is reported by Sa'id b. Musayyib who narrated it on the authority of his father (Musayyib b. Hazm) that when Abu Talib was about to die, the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) came to him and found with him Abu Jahl ('Amr b. Hisham) and 'Abdullah b. Abi Umayya ibn al-Mughirah. The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: My uncle, you just make a profession that there is none worthy of worship (in truth) but Allaah, and I will bear testimony before Allaah (of your being a believer), Abu Jahl and 'Abdullah b. Abi Umayya addressing him said: Abu Talib, would you abandon the religion of 'Abdul-Muttalib? The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) constantly requested him (to accept his offer), and (on the other hand) was repeated the same statement (of Abu Jahl and 'Abdullah b. Abi Umayya) till Abu Talib gave his final decision and be stuck to the religion of 'Abdul-Muttalib and refused to profess that there is none worthy of worship (in truth) but Allaah. Upon this the Messenger of Allaah remarked: By Allaah, I will persistently beg pardon for you till I am forbidden to do so (by God), It was then that Allaah, the Magnificent and the Glorious, revealed this verse:

" It is not meet for the Prophet and for those who believe that they should beg pardon for the polytheists, even though they were their kith and kin, after it had been made known to them that they were the denizens of Hell" (ix. 113)

And it was said to the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam):

" Verily thou canst not guide to the right path whom thou lovest. And it is Allaah Who guideth whom He will, and He knoweth best who are the guided" (xxviii, 56).

No. 37

It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allaah said to his uncle at the time of his death: Make a profession of it that there is none worthy of worship (in truth) but Allaah and I will bear testimony (of your being a Muslim) on the Day of judgment. But he (Abu Talib) refused to do so. Then Allaah revealed this verse:

" Verily thou canst not guide to the right path whom thou lovest. And it is Allaah Who guideth whom He will and He knoweth best who are the guided" (xxviii. 56).

No. 38

It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allaah said to his uncle (at the time of his death): Make a profession of it that there is none worthy of worship (in truth) but Allaah and I will bear testimony (of your being a Muslim) on the Day of judgment. He (Abu Talib) said: Were it not the fear of the Quraysh blaming me (and) saying that it was the fear of (approaching death) that induced me to do so, I would have certainly delighted your eyes. It was then that Allaah revealed:

" Verily thou canst not guide to the right path whom thou lovest. And it is Allaah Who guideth whom He will and He knoweth best who are the guided" (xxviii-56).
