Respected Brother
Ibrahim ibn Muhammad was the son of Muhammad and Maria al-Qibtiyya. He was born in Madinah in the eighth year of Hijrah [AD 629-320]. On the seventh day after his birth The Prophet slaughtered a sheep to celebrate his ‘Aqiqah, got his head shaved, and distributed as alms a sum of gold equal in weight to his hair. He was named after Prophet Ibraham (as). The child was placed in the care of a wet nurse called Umm Sayf, wife of Abu Sayf, the blacksmith, in the tradition of the Arabs of the time, to whom Muhammad gave some goats to complement her milk supply.
After the Battle of Tabuk, Ibrahim fell seriously ill. He was reported as being either sixteen or eighteen months old. He was moved to a date orchard near the residence of his mother, under her care and her sister Sirin. When it was clear that he would not likely survive The Prophet
was informed. The Prophet was so shocked at the news that he felt his knees could no more carry him, and asked `Abd al Rahman ibn `Awf to give him his hand to lean upon. He proceeded immediately to the orchard and arrived in time to bid farewell to an infant dying in his mother's lap. Muhammad took the child and laid him in his own lap with shaking hands. His heart was torn apart by the new tragedy, and his face mirrored his inner pain. Choking with sorrow, he said to his son, "O Ibrahim, against the judgment of Allah, we cannot avail you a thing," and then fell silent. Tears flowed from his eyes. The child lapsed gradually, and his mother and aunt watched and cried loudly and incessantly, but the Prophet neverorderedthemtostop.
As Ibrahim surrendered to death, Muhammad
's hope which had consoled him for a brief while completely crumbled. With tears in his eyes he talked once more to the dead child: "O Ibrahim, were the truth not certain that the last of us will join the first, we would have mourned you even more than we do now." A moment later he said: "The eyes send their tears and the heart is saddened, but we do not say anything except that which pleases our Lord. Indeed, O Ibrahim, we are bereaved by your departure from us."
The Prophet
is also reported as having informed Maria al-Qibtiyya and Sirin that Ibrahim would have his own nurse in Paradise. Different accounts relate that the ghusl for Ibrahim was performed by either Umm Burdah, or al-Fadl ibn `Abbas, in preparation for burial. Thereafter, he was carried to the cemetery upon a little bed among others by Muhammad, his uncle al-'Abbas. Here, after a funeral prayer led by The Prophet, he was interred. He then filled the grave with sand, sprinkled some water upon it, and placed a landmark on it, whereupon he is reported as saying that "Tombstones do neither good nor ill, but they help appease the living. Anything that man does, God wishes him to do well."

The Eclipse
The occasion of the death of Ibrahim also coincided with an eclipse of the sun. A phenomenon the Muslims began to circulate by rumor as a miracle. The word went out saying that the sun was eclipsed in sadness over the death of Ibrahim. Upon hearing this Muhammad
is reported as saying "The sun and the moon are signs of God. They are eclipsed neither for the death nor birth of any man. On beholding an eclipse, therefore, remember God and turn to Him in prayer."

I am highly shocked to know the Death of Gigantic persona Respected Mr. Abubakar passed away Friday morning around at 4:30 after a short sickness at a his home Narayanpur Sakri Darbhanga.

He had associated with various religious, literal, cultural, social, educational, political, and learned organizations and founded lot of educational institutions of higher learning in India & abroad. He was an eminent and ideal scholar around global community. He was worldwide fame and known as a human friendly personality.

Dard-E-Dil Ke Waaste Paida Kiya Insaan Ko
Warna Taa’at Ke Liye Kuch Kam Ne The Karro-Biyan
Poochne Waale Tumhain Kaise Batain Aakhir
Dukh Ibaraat To Nahi Hai Ke Likh Kar Bhejun
Yeh Kahani Bhi Nahi Hai Ke Sunaaun Tum Ko
Na Koi Baat Hai Aisi Ke Bataaun Tum Ko
Zakhm Ho to Tere Nakhun Ke Hawaale Kar Doon
Aaina Bhi to Nahi Hai Key Dikhaaun Tum Ko
Yeh Koi Raaz Nahi, Jis Ko Chupain To Woh Raaz
Kabhi Chahre Kabhi Aakhon Se Chalak Jata Hai
Jaise Aanchal Ko Sambhale Koi Aur Tez Hawa
Jub Bhi Chalti Hai To Shaanon Se Dhalak Jata Hai
Tum Ne Poocha Hai Magar Kaise Batain Akhir?
Poochne Waale Tumhain Kaise Batain Aakhir?
Wish his family all the best for the noble cause that Respected Mr. Abubakar bring for national and international harmony for the sake of universal communities. he spread love peace and education around the world through his children’s he took his higher education and teach in I think Universities of Bhagalpur or Kolkata in India around after independence for a short time and at last he take voluntary retired from University service he burnt a lot of lamp throughout his ideal teaching, learning personality during his service.
