The story of Alqamah radhiyallahu anhu

Alqamah radhiyallahu anhu  was a very pious person. He spent his time in Salaat and Sawm. At the approach of death he was unable to proclaim the Kalimah Shahaadah in spite of repeated Talqeen (instruction) by those present. Alqamah's wife sent a person to Rasoolullaah sallallahu alayhi wasallam  to inform him of Alqamah's grave condition. Rasoolullaah sallallahu alayhi wasallam  enquired whether the parents of Alqamah radhiyallahu anhu  were alive. He was informed that Alqamah's mother was alive. Rasoolullaah sallallahu alayhi wasallam  asked the aged mother about Alqamah radhiyallahu anhu . She replied, "Alqamah radhiyallahu anhu  is a very pious person. He passes his time in Salaat  and Sawm . He performs Tahajjud , but he always disobeys me for the sake of his wife. I am, therefore, displeased with him."
Rasoolullaah sallallahu alayhi wasallam  said, "It will be best for him if you forgive him."
However she refused. Rasoolullaah sallallahu alayhi wasallam  ordered Bilaal radhiyallahu anhu  to gather firewood and to burn Alqamah in the fire. On hearing this order, Alqamah's mother asked in consternation, "Will my child be burnt in the fire?"
Rasoolullaah sallallahu alayhi wasallam  said, "Yes!Compared to the punishment of Allah , our punishment is light. I take oath by Allah  that as long as you remain displeased with him, neither his Salaat nor his Sadaqah is accepted."
The old lady said, "I make you and all people present witness that I have forgiven Alqamah radhiyallahu anhu 
Rasoolullaah sallallahu alayhi wasallam , addressing the gathering, said, "Go and see if the Kalimah is on the tongue of Alqamah or not."
After returning from Alqamah radhiyallahu anhu  the people informed that he was reciting the Kalimah. Thus, he left this world with the Kalimah on his lips.
After burying Alqamah radhiyallahu anhu
 , Rasoolullaah sallallahu alayhi wasallam  said,
"The curse of Allah  is on the one who causes difficulty to his mother. The curse of the angels and the curse of mankind be on him. Allah  neither accepts his Fardh  nor his Nafl  ibaadah  as long as he does not repent and obeys his mother. He has to gain her pleasure as best as he can. Allah 's pleasure depends upon the mother's pleasure and His wrath is concealed in her wrath."
