CHAPTER: CONCERNING THE SHROUDING OF THE DEAD BODY  

No. 2050

Khabbab al-Aratt reported: We migrated with the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) in the path of Allaah seeking Allaah's pleasure alone. Thus our reward was assured with Allaah. And amongst us were those who spent life (in such a state of piety and austerity) that nothing consumed their reward. Mus'ab b. 'Umair was one of them. He was killed on the Day of Uhud, and nothing but a woollen cloak was found to shroud him. When we covered his head with it, his feet became uncovered, and when we covered his feet, his head was uncovered. Upon this the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Place it (this cloak) on the side of his head and cover his feet with grass. And there is one amongst us for whom the fruit is ripened and he enjoys it.

No. 2051

A hadith like this has been narrated by 'Uyaina on the authority of A'mash with the same chain of transmitters.

No. 2052

'A'isha reported that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) was shrouded in three cotton garments of white Yamani stuff from Sahul, among which was neither a shirt nor a turban; and so far as Hullah is concerned there was some doubt about it in the minds of people, that it was brought for him in order to shroud him with it, but it was abandoned, and he was shrouded in three cotton garments of white Yamani stuff from Sahul. Then 'Abdullah b. Abu Bakr got it and said: I would keep it in order to shroud myself in it. He then said: If Allaah, the Exalted and Majestic, would have desired it for His Prophet, he would have been shrouded with it. So he sold it and gave its price in charity.

No. 2053

'A'isha reported that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) was wrapped in a Yamani wrapper which belonged to 'Abdullah b Abu Bakr; then it was removed from him, and he was shrouded in three cotton sheets of white Yamani stuff from Sahul among which was neither a shirt nor a turban. 'Abdullah took up the Hullah and said: I would be shrouded in it, but then said: How is it that I should be shrouded in it in which the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) was not shrouded! So he gave it in charity.

No. 2054

This hadith is narrated on the authority of Hisham with the same chain of transmitters, but in the hadith narrated by him there is no mention of the story of 'Abdullah b. Abu Bakr.

No. 2055

Abu Salama said: I asked 'A'isha with how many garments the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) was shourded. She said: With three garments of Sahul.
