Shaykh Hassan's (RA) Last Sermon
I have gathered here the gist of Shaykh Hassan's (RA) last public address the day before he passed away. The occasion was a funeral in Kaolack. The following summary was conveyed to us by Cheikh Jere Cisse, the intimate traveling companion of Shaykh Hassan (RA): “A person in this life is like the traveler that stops under a tree to rest for a while before continuing on. The same Allah who took back to Himself the Prophet Muhammad (SAW), Shaykh Ahmad Tijani and Shaykh Ibrahim Niasse will not leave anyone on the face of the earth. Allah's power is such that He can take whole communities at once, as in Indonesia with the Tsunami: entire towns and villages were wiped off the map. There was no one even to perform the janaza for them. For Allah to take only one person is a mercy. Whatever Allah takes, belongs to Him; whatever Allah leaves on the earth for a time, belongs to Him. I am leaving you with Allah. Shaykh Ibrahim once said to my father, Saydi Ali, I am leaving you in the pocket of the Prophet (SAW). And I say: I am leaving you in the pocket of Shaykh Ibrahim.” Afterwards, we thanked Cheikh Jere for all the years he spent in service to our Shaykh (RA), traveling with him everywhere he went around the world. He said, really it was a privilege and an honor. Almost twenty years ago, Cheikh Jere continued, he was riding in the car with Shaykh Hassan (RA), with Cheikh Tijani Cisse in the front seat. Shaykh Hassan (RA) said, "You should be thankful to be helping me. My grandfather once prayed for me, and then told me, 'Go tell your mother and father I have just prayed for you a prayer that no one can stop the mission that is for you to complete.'
