I am not sure how authentic this is, however the picture looks as real as it can get.
Either way, what a stirring moment. Of all times in the day that one is close to God, you are closest to Him in your prayers. And within prayers one of the closest positions is that of prostration, where in total submission man brings his head to the ground and declares, “Glory be to You, O Allah. Glory be to You.” Here’s a man, who arrives at the one of the Holiest places on earth, Medina. He commences prayer, begins conversing with His Beloved. He moves to prostration, surrendering himself completely. Just when He is closest to God as one can be, the Lord brings His hand and lifts His lover to himself saying, “I love you too much to have even this much distance between ourselves. Come even closer to me, my Son. Even Closer.” Subhanallah. “Aisee maut, Allah sab ko naseeb karay.”
