The weeping of Dhun Nurayn ‘Uthman[RA]

leave a comment »

Haani’, the freed slave of ‘Uthmaan ibn ‘Affaan, narrated that whenever ‘Uthmaan (may Allah be pleased with him) stood over a grave he would weep until his beard would be wet. It was said to him,

“You remember Paradise and Hell and you do not weep, but when you remember the grave you weep?”

He said,

“I heard the Messenger of Allah say,

‘The grave is the first stage of the Hereafter. Whoever passes through it safely, whatever comes after that will be easier for him, but if he does not pass though it safely, whatever comes after that will be harder for him.'”

He said,

“And I heard the Messenger say,

‘I have never seen any (disturbing) scene, more terrifying than the grave.'”

This is narrated by Tirmidhi.

(Tirmidhi and Ibn Maajah, Tirmidhi asid, this is a ghareeb hadith. See Mishkaat al-Masaabeeh, 1/48; Jaami’ al-Usool, 11/164. Shaykh Naasir said in his commentary on Al-Mishkaat, its isnad is hasan. See Saheeh al-Jaami’ as-Sagheer 2/85)
