Abu Bakr (r.a.) Supplicated to Die on a Monday

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam al-Qasthalani (r.a.) said, in his commentary on Swahih al-Bukhari, “In his book on Jana’iz, Imam al-Bukhari named an entire chapter ‘Dying on Monday.’”  In it, there is the hadits of ‘Aishah (r.a.) relating her father, Abu Bakr asw-Swiddiq’s (r.a.), question, “On which day did the Prophet die?”

She replied, “Monday.”

He asked, “What day are we today?”

She said, “O my father, this is Monday.”

Then he raised his hands and said, “I beg you, O Allah, to Let me die on Monday in order to coincide with the Prophet’s day of passing.”  Abu Bakr (r.a.) asked for his death to be on Monday so that his death would coincide with the day of the Prophet’s (s.a.w.) passing, in order to receive the barakah of that day.
