حياتي خير لكم تحدثون ويحدث لكم ، فإذا أنا مت كانت وفاتي خيرا لكم ، تعرض علي أعمالكم فان رأيت خيرا حمدت الله تعالى وإن رأيت شرا استغفرت لكم.


Hayaatee khayrun lakum tuhadithoona wa yuhdatha lakum fa idhaa anaa mitta kaanat wafaatee khayran lakum.
Tu`radu `alayya `amalakum fa in raa’itu khayran hamadta ’Llah wa in raa’itu sharran astaghfarta lahum.

The Prophet (s) said: My life is good for you as you will relate from me and it will be related to you, and when I die my passing will be better for you.  I observe the deeds of my ummah. If I find good I thank Allah, and if I see bad, I ask forgiveness for them.

Shaykh Hisham Kabbani explains "and when I die my passing will be better for you" as meaning, “My death is better for you than my life, because then I can pray for you.”)
