When Ja`far bin Abi Talib  (رضي الله عنه) recited Surah Maryam  to An-Najashi (رضي الله عنه) , King of Ethiopia, in the presence of Christian priests and patriarchs, he and they cried until their beards became wet from crying.

Ibn Hisham

The Two Sahihs record that when An-Najashi died, the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم ) conveyed the news to his Companions and said,


«إِنَّ أَخًا لَكُمْ بِالْحَبَشَةِ قَدْ مَاتَ، فَصَلُّوا عَلَيْه»


(A brother of yours from Ethiopia has passed, come to offer the funeral prayer.) He went out with the Companions to the Musalla lined them up in rows, and after that led the prayer.
