Allah (Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala) says in the Noble Qur’aan,
“And worship your Lord until there comes to you the certainty.” [Al-Hijr: 99]
Al-Bukhari said, “Salim said, ‘(This means) death’.” This Salim is Salim bin `Abdullah bin `Umar.
Ibn Jarir also recorded from Salim bin `Abdullah,
“And worship your Lord until the Yaqeen comes to you.” He said, "Death.''
It is reported in the Saheeh from Umm Al-`Ala'- one of the women of the Ansaar - that when the Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) entered upon ‘Uthmaan bin Maz`un after he had died, Umm Al-`Ala' said, “May the mercy of Allah be upon you, Abu As-Sa`ib. My testimony over you is that Allah has honoured you.” The Messenger of Allah said,
“How do you know that Allah has honoured him?” I said, “May my father and mother be sacrificed for you, O Messenger of Allah! If not him, then who else?” He said,
“As far as he is concerned, the death has come to him, and I hope for good for him.” This is evidence that the meaning of this aayah,
“And worship your Lord until the certainty comes to you” is that acts of worship, such as prayer and the like, are obligatory on man so long as his mind is sound, so he should pray according to his best ability. It was reported in Saheeh Al-Bukhari from ‘Imraan bin Husayn that the Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said,
“Pray standing, and if you cannot, then sitting, and if you cannot, then on your side.” From this we may understand that it is a mistake to interpret Yaqeen (the certainty) as Ma`rifah ("spiritual knowing'') as some of the Sufis do. According to them, when one of them attains the level of Ma`rifah, they consider him to be free of these obligations. This is disbelief, misguidance and ignorance. The Prophets - peace be upon them - and their companions, were the most knowledgeable of people about Allah, about His rights, His attributes, and the glorification that He deserves. But at the same time, they were the people who worshipped Him the most, continuing in good deeds until the time they died. Therefore, what is meant by Yaqeen here is death, as we have stated above. [Tafsir Ibn Katheer]
Our Shaykh Hasan ibn Mansoor Daghriry (hafidhahullah) will explain what it means to worship Allah until certainty comes to us and present us with some of the jewels of guidance found in this tremendous aayah as outlined by our scholars both past and present.
We ask Allah to grant us all steadfastness in worship and we ask Him, Al-Lateef Al-Kareem to take our souls at the time when He is most pleased with us.
