Like many prophets Hazrat Uzair also belonged to ban-i- Israil. He was well read scholar of Hazrat Musa’s Tora’at. Tora’at was the book revealed to Hazrat Musa by Allah.
Hazrat Uzair was a farmer. It was a y. He set out for his fields on his donkey. He reached a place at noon which was deserted.
There were few broken down and damaged buildings but no life form around.
He decided to eat and rest in a vacant broken down house in the area.
He had two baskets. One had food for his donkey and one had foodstuff for himself. He unloaded the baskets and fed the donkey.
Then he took out grapes and dried bread from his basket. He crushed the grapes to take out juice. Then he put dried pieces of bread in the grape juice to soften before he ate the. He lay down and rested until the bread softened.
The walls of the house where he lay had fallen and roof was almost half broken. He lay under the shade of a broken wall. He looked around and thought that some one must have lived in that house. Life would have been beautiful then. People must have led a happy life. But now there is no one to be seen. People died and houses fallen and everything finished.
The condition of the place was very bad. It seemed a very long time since any one lived there. Even the bones of the dead human beings and animals decayed.
But Hazrat Uzair knew that all dead will be brought to life again on dooms day. He imagined that how will the dead come to life again. What an amazing scene will it be? He believed that nothing is impossible for Almighty Allah. He kept thinking all that and praising Allah.
Allah knows us in and out. So Allah sent an angel of death who took away Hazrat Uzair’s life. Hazrat Uzair died.
After one hundred years Allah sent an angel again.
