Towards the end of his life, Hz. Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) made the following supplication:
O Allah, let the best of my lifetime be its ending, and my best deed be that which I seal [my life with], and the best of my days the day I meet You.
Many Muslims make this prayer to seek a blessed and fulfilling life in the hereafter. In this article, we will tell the story of Mohammad Qassem and his family, who had a perfect ending as requested in the prayer of Hz. Abu Bakr.
Hajj is a significant event in the Islamic calendar as millions of Muslims gather in Mecca every year to embark on a journey that will last a lifetime. Every financially capable adult Muslim is obligated to perform the Hajj pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, “The accepted Hajj has no reward other than Paradise, and an accepted ‘Umrah erases the sins committed between them.”
