‘When the Prophet was healthy, he used to say, “No soul of a Prophet is taken until he has been shown his place in Paradise and then he is given the choice.” When death approached him while his head was on my thigh, he became unconscious and then recovered consciousness. He then looked at the ceiling of the house and said,  “O Allah!

The last words he spoke were, “O Allah! (with) the highest companions.”’ Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 4463; Muslim, 2444.
