CHAPTER: THE MERITS OF 'ABDULLAH B. 'AMR B. HARAM, THE FATHER OF JABIR (ALLAAH BE PLEASED WITH HIM)
Jabir b. 'Abdullah reported: The dead body of my father was brought and he was covered (with cloth) and it had been mutilated. I made an attempt to lift the cloth, but my people prohibited me to do so. I again made an attempt to lift the cloth, but my people prohibited me. Thereupon Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) lifted it or he commanded it to be lifted. He heard the noise (of a loud) weeping, or the noise of a woman mourner. He inquired who she was. They said: The daughter of 'Amr or the sister of Amr, whereupon he said: Why does she weep? The Angels provide him shade with the help of their Wings until he would be lifted (to his heavenly abode)
Jabir b. 'Abdullah reported: My father fell as a martyr on the Day of Uhud and I attempted to uncover his face and weep, but they (the Companions of the Prophet) forbade me to do this, whereas Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) did not forbid me and Fatima bint Amr, the sister of my father, was also weeping There- upon Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: You may weep or you may not weep; the Angels provide him shade with the help of their wings until you lift him (to be buried in the grave).
This hadith has been narrated on the authority of Jabir through another chain of transmitters, but with this difference that there is no mention of the Angels and the weeping of a female mourner.
Jabir reported: My father was brought in a state that his ears had been cut off and (his dead body) was placed before Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam), the rest of the hadith is the same.
