Back to book

أبي رحمه الله قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن إبراهيم بن مهزيار عن أخيه علي بن مهزيار عن فضالة بن أيوب عن معاوية بن وهب عن يحيى بن سابور قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام يقول: الميت تدمع عينه عند الموت، فقال ذلك عند معاينة رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله يرى ما يسره، قال، ثم قال: ترى الرجل يرى ما يسره فتدمع عينه ويضحك.


1. My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah, from Ibrahim Bin Mahziyar, from his brother Ali Bin Mahziyar, from Fazalat Bin Ayoub, from Muawiya Bin Wahab, from Yahya Bin Sabour who said, ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (asws) saying: ‘The dead, his eyes sheds tears during his death. That is during his seeing Rasool-Allah (saww) is what cheers him up’. Then he (asws) said: ‘You have seen the man when he sees what cheers him up, so his eyes fill up with tears and he laughs’.
