Back to book

1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) قَالَ رَأَى رَسُولُ الله (صلّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) قَوْماً خَلْفَ جَنَازَةٍ رُكْبَاناً فَقَالَ أَ مَا اسْتَحْيَا هَؤُلاَءِ أَنْ يَتْبَعُوا صَاحِبَهُمْ رُكْبَاناً وَقَدْ أَسْلَمُوهُ عَلَى هَذِهِ الْحَالِ.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from certain person of our people who has said the following: “Abu ’Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that the Messenger of Allah once saw a group of people riding behind the coffin in a funeral procession. He said, ‘Why do these people not feel ashamed of following their companion while they have abandoned him in such condition?’”

2ـ عَلِيٌّ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ حَمَّادِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ حَرِيزٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله قَالَ مَاتَ رَجُلٌ مِنَ الأنْصَارِ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ رَسُولِ الله (صلّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) فَخَرَجَ رَسُولُ الله (صلّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) فِي جَنَازَتِهِ يَمْشِي فَقَالَ لَهُ بَعْضُ أَصْحَابِهِ أَ لاَ تَرْكَبُ يَا رَسُولَ الله فَقَالَ إِنِّي لأَكْرَهُ أَنْ أَرْكَبَ وَالْمَلاَئِكَةُ يَمْشُونَ وَأَبَى أَنْ يَرْكَبَ.


2. Ali has narrated from his father from Hammad ibn ‘Isa from Hariz from ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn ‘Abd Allah who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘A man from Ansar (new Muslims of al-Madinah) of the companions of the Messenger of Allah died. The Messenger of Allah came out and joined the funeral procession walking. Someone from his companions said, “Why do you not ride, O Messenger of Allah?” He replied, “I do not like to ride when angels are walking.” He refused to ride.’”
