60. Placing the Dead Body in front of the Grave

Back to book

1ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَجْلاَنَ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) لاَ تَفْدَحْ مَيِّتَكَ بِالْقَبْرِ وَلَكِنْ ضَعْهُ أَسْفَلَ مِنْهُ بِذِرَاعَيْنِ أَوْ ثَلاَثَةٍ وَدَعْهُ يَأْخُذُ أُهْبَتَهُ.


1. A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad from Muhammad ibn Sinan from Muhammad ibn ‘Ajlan who has said the following: “Abu ’Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘You must not make it heavy for your deceased by placing him in the grave. Place him two or three yards away from the grave on the ground so that he can get ready.”’

2ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ الْخُرَاسَانِيِّ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ يُونُسَ قَالَ حَدِيثٌ سَمِعْتُهُ عَنْ أَبِي الْحَسَنِ مُوسَى (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) مَا ذَكَرْتُهُ وَأَنَا فِي بَيْتٍ إِلاَّ ضَاقَ عَلَيَّ يَقُولُ إِذَا أَتَيْتَ بِالْمَيِّتِ شَفِيرَ قَبْرِهِ فَأَمْهِلْهُ سَاعَةً فَإِنَّهُ يَأْخُذُ أُهْبَتَهُ لِلسُّؤَالِ.


2. Ali ibn Muhammad has narrated from Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Khurasaniy from his father from Yunus who has said the following: “I heard a Hadith from abu al-Hassan, Musa, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, that whenever I remember it in a house I feel as if it is tightening upon me. He (the Imam) said, ‘When a deceased is placed in front of his grave, give him a chance for a while; he readies himself for interrogation.’”
