Zayd ibn Aslam said, Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radi Allahu ‘anhu) went out at night to observe the people and saw a lamp in a house where an old woman eas teasing some wool, saying
The prayer of the good be upon Muhammad ﷺ
may The Blessed bless him ﷺ!
I was standing in tears before dawn. If only I knew,
when death gives us different forms,
Whether the Abode will join me to my beloved ﷺ
She meant the Prophet ﷺ. Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radi Allau ‘anhu) sat down in tears.
