THE TEARS OF RASULULLAH (S.A.W)
...Suddenly, there was a person said salaam."May I come in?" he asked. But Fatimah did not allow him enter the room."I'm sorry, my father is ill," said Fatimah turned her body back and closed the door. She went back to her father who had opened his eyes and asked Fatimah, "Who was he, my daughter?"I don't know, my father. It was the first time for me to see him," Fatimah said gently. Then, Rasulullah ( s.a) looked at his daughter with trembled look, as if he wanted to reminisce about every part of her daughter's face."Know one thing! He is who erases the temporary pleasure; he is who separates the companionship in the world.He is the death angel," said Rasulullah( s.a) .Fatimah bore the bomb of her cry. The death angel came toward him, But Rasulullah (s.a) asked why Jibril did not come along with him. Then, Jibril was called. Jibril was ready in the sky to welcome the soul of Habibullah and the leader of the earth."O Jibril, explain me about my rights in front of ALLAH?" Rasulullah ( s.a) asked with a weakest voice."The doors of sky has opened, the angels are waiting for your soul." "All jannats open widely waiting for you," Jibril said.But, in fact, those all did not make Rasulullah (s.a) relieve, his eyeswere still full of worry." You are not happy to hear this news?" asked Jibril. "Tell me about the destiny of my people in future?"Don't worry, o Rasul ALLAH ( s.a). I heard ALLAH told me: 'I make jannat haram for every one, except the people of Muhammad are inside it," Jibril said. It became closer and closer, the time for Malaekat Izrail to do his work.Slowly, Rasulullah's (s.a) soul was pulled. It was seemed that the body of Rasulullah (s.a) was full of sweat; the nerves of his neck became tight."Jibril, how pain this sakaratul maut is!"
Rasulullah (s.a) uttered a groan slowly. Fatimah closed her eyes, Ali(r.a) sat beside her bow deeply and Jibril turned his face back. "Am I repugnant to you that you turn your face back o Jibril?" Rasulullah (s.a)asked to the Deliverer of Wahyu."Who is the one who could see the Habibullah in his sakaratul maut," Jibril said.Not for a while, Rasulullah (s.a) uttered a groan because of unbearable pain. "O ALLAH, how greatest is this sakaratul maut. Give me all these pains,don't to my people." The body of Rasulullah (s.a ) became cold, his feet and chest did not move anymore. His lips vibrated as if he wanted to say something, Ali took his ear close to Rasulullah ( s.a) Uushiikum bis salati, wa maa malakat aimanuku - take care the aat and take care the weak people among you."Outside the room, there were cries shouted each other, sahabah held each other. Fatimah closed her face with her hands and, again, Ali ( r.a) took his ear close to Rasulullah's ( s.a) mouth which became bluish. "Ummatii, ummatii, ummatii?" - "My people, my people, my people."And the life of the noble man ended.

Authenticity of prophet(saws) death narration
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Respected brother, to the best of our knowledge there is absolutely nothing recorded in the authentic and established Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) which even remotely resembles the incidents or the statements quoted in the above narration you received from your friend!
This is what is related in the authentic narrations by the fortunate individuals who were around the Prophet (saws) during his final hours on this earth:
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 5.739 Narrated by Anas
When the ailment of the Prophet (saws) got aggravated, he (saws) became unconscious whereupon Fatimah (r.a.) said, "Oh, how distressed my father is!" He (saws) said, "Your father will have no more distress after today."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.359 Narrated by Aisha
When Allah's Messenger (saws) was healthy, he
(saws) used to say, "No prophet dies till he is shown his place in
Beloved brother, we remind you as we remind ourselves: One should fear Allah and be extremely careful when quoting or attributing something to the Messenger of Allah (saws); for the chastisement of intentionally attributing a falsehood to Prophet Mohamed (saws) is very severe indeed.
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 232 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Abbas
Allah's Messenger (saws) said: Be mindful when transmitting a Hadith from me. (Transmit) only that which you know (to be the Truth); for he who intentionally attributes a falsehood to me will find his abode in Hell-Fire.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
