5 - قال: أخبرني أبو بكر محمد بن عمر بن سالم قال: حدثنا أبو عبد الله جعفر ابن محمد الحسني قال: حدثنا عيسى بن مهران قال: أخبرنا أبو معاوية الضرير قال: حدثنا الأعمش، عن شقيق ، عن أم سلمة زوج النبي صلى الله عليه وآله قال: دخل عليها عبد الرحمن بن عوف فقال: يا أمه قد خفت أن تهلكني كثرة مالي، أنا أكثر قريش مالا، قالت: يا بني فأنفق، فإني سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله يقول: من أصحابي من لا يراني بعد أن أفارقه. قال: فخرج عبد الرحمن فلقي عمر بن الخطاب فأخبره بالذي قالت أم سلمة فجاء يشتد حتى دخل عليها، فقال: يا أمه أنا منهم؟ فقالت: لا أعلم ولن أبرئ بعدك أحدا.

5. He said: Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn Umar ibn Salim reported to me from Abu Abdillah Ja’far ibn Muhammad al-Hasani, who reported from Isa ibn Mehran, who reported from Abu Mu’awiyah al-Dhareer, who reported from A’amash, from Shaqeeq, from Ummu Salemah, the Prophet’s wife, who said that Abdul Rahman ibn Awf (once) called upon her and said: "O Mother, I fear that my abundant wealth may destroy me. I am the richest among the Quraish." She said: "O Son, spend (in the way of Allah), for surely, I heard the Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, say: From my companions, there will be some who will never see me again after I have departed from them." He said: Abdul Rahman left, and on his way met with Umar ibn al-Khattaibn He informed him about what Ummu Salemah had said. He (Umar) came to Ummu Salemah with insistence that he be allowed to visit her, then he said: "O mother, am I among them?" She said: "I do not know, nor am I going to absolve anyone beside you."
