The Calamity of the Prophet’s Death and its Effects on the Muslim Nation The Prophet (SAW) 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 th Prophet (SAW) is the greatest disaster that has occured or will occur to the Muslim nation. The Messenger of Allah 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. Whenever we lost any of our relatives or loved-ones, we are sure to have felt the pain of parting from them ant the anxiety of the farewell. The question now is this: Have we had any such feelings or sentiments when we contemplate the death of the Prophet (SAW) ?
