the Name of Allaah, the All-Merciful, the Most Merciful...
I advise my wife, children, friends, and all of my beloved
ones, when the news of my death reaches them, to supplicate
to Allaah, asking His Forgiveness and Mercy for me. I ask
that they do not wail over me nor cry with a raised voice.
I ask that they hurry my burial. I ask them also not to inform
any of my close relatives or brothers (at the exclusion of
others), except that which is necessary to prepare me for
burial. Also I ask that they allow my body to be washed by
my neighbor and sincere friend, 'Izzat Khidr Aboo 'Abdir-Rahmaan,
and whoever he asks to help him with it.
I choose to be buried in the closest place available, so those
who carry me will not place me in a car, nor will the followers
of the janaazah (funeral) ride in their cars. I also
ask that the graveyard be an old one, to ensure that its graves
will not be exhumed...
for those living in the land that I die in, I ask that you
do not make it a priority to inform my children from other
lands until after I am buried. This is to prevent the emotions
from overwhelming you, and as a result my janaazah
ask Al-Mawlaa (Allaah) that I meet him and that he
has forgiven my past sins, and those I have yet to commit
(at the time of writing this)...
bequeath my entire library, every printed book, copy, and
manuscript (by my handwriting or someone else's) to the library
of the Islaamic University of Al-Madeenah. That is because
of my many fond memories of that place, the da'wah
to the Book and the Sunnah upon the way of the righteous Salaf
that I remember from the years I used to teach there.
hope that Allaah will cause it to benefit the leaders of the
da'wah there, as its owner used to benefit the students
there in days gone by. And I ask that Allaah benefits me by
them, from their sincerity and their work in the da'wah.
O my Lord! Make me thankful for Your Favor that You bestowed
upon me, and upon both my parents, and make me one that does
righteous deeds that you love. And correct my offspring for
me. Surely I repent to You, and surely I am from amongst the
Muslims. )

may Allaah sanctify his soul, from what is beneficial for
the masses of the people. Some things specific to his situation,
may Allaah have Mercy on him, were excluded.
we took care of his request as he asked; as his death was
before sunset and the prayer on him was performed after 'Eshaa'.
And the time between his death and burial was less than three
in the hour of his burial, those present from his brothers,
children, students, loved ones, friends, and relatives gathered,
their number being close to 5000, or perhaps more.

to the Sunnah.

graveyard to his house, a privately-owned graveyard not open
to the public. Allaah Alone granted us ease in getting him
buried there, in a lahd , precisely according to
the Sunnah once again.

Allaah preserve him , called the family of Shaykh Naasir
on the night of his death to console them for their loss,
saying, "His entire life was an exemplification of
the Sunnah, his living as well as his dying." May
Allaah reward him.
can not find words to close with regarding our Shaykh, the
great scholar, except that I say about him what Al-Imaam Al-Haakim
said about his shaykh, Al-Haafith Abee 'Alee An-Naysaabooree,
may Allaah have Mercy on all of them:
do not say this as a dedicated fanatic since he was my teacher,
but I simply never saw anything comparable to him."
