6. He said: Abu Nasr Muhammad ibn al-Husayn al-Baseer al-Muqri reported to me from Abul Qasim ‘Ali ibn Muhammad, who reported from ‘Ali ibn al-Husayn, who reported from al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali ibn Yusuf, from Abu Abdullah Zakariyya ibn Muhammad al-Mu’min, from Saeed ibn Yasar, who said: I heard Abu Abdillah Ja’far ibn Muhammad, peace be upon him, saying: Once the Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, was present at the death bed of a young man; so he said to him: "Say, there is no god but Allah." (He said): "The Youth was tongue-tied every time (he tried)." So the Prophet asked a lady sitting near his head: "Does he have a mother?" She said: "Yes, I am his mother." He (i.e. the Prophet) asked: "Are you displeased with him?" She said: "Yes. I have not talked to him for years." He said: "Then grant him your pleasure." She said: "May Allah be pleased with him, O messenger of Allah, (together) with your pleasure." Then the Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, said (to the young man): "Say there is no god but Allah!" And he uttered the words. Then the Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, asked: "What do you see?" He said: "I see a man with dark face, ugly looks, dirty dress, evil smelling, now drawing near me and strangling me." The Prophet said: "Recite: O He who accepts little, and forgives much! Accept from me little, and forgive me much, for surely, You are Forgiving and Merciful." The young man recited the prayers; then the Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny asked: "Look, what you see?" He said: "I see a man with bright face, handsome, good smelling, well-dressed, coming near me; and I see the man with dark face turning away from me." The Prophet asked him to repeat, so he repeated. Then he (i.e. the Prophet) asked: "What do you see (now)?" He said: "(Now) I do not see the man with dark face (at all) and I see the man with bright face drawn closer to me." Then he (the young man) died in that state.
