Hadith on Prophet's death scene

Sahih Bukhari,
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 144:

Narrated ‘Aisha:
that during his fatal ailment, Allah’s Apostle, used to ask his wives, “Where shall I stay tomorrow? Where shall I stay tomorrow?” He was looking forward to Aisha’s turn. So all his wives allowed him to stay where he wished, and he stayed at ‘Aisha’s house till he died there. ‘Aisha added: He died on the day of my usual turn at my house. Allah took him unto Him while his head was between my chest and my neck and his saliva was mixed with my saliva.

Aisha, whom Prophet married at age of 9 was then 18 years old.

Volume 5, Book 59, Number 730:further says that Aisha then took a twig (Siwak/datun) made it soft (by chewing of course!) and inserted in prophet’s mouth to clean it!

Four days before death, he recommended three things:

  1. Jews, Christians and polytheists should be expelled out of Arabia.
  2. He recommended that delegations should be honoured and entertained, in a way similar to the one he used to do.
  3. As for the third — the narrator said that he had forgotten it
