Sunan Abi Dawood 3185

Narrated Jabir ibn Samurah:

A man fell ill and a cry was raised (for his death). So his neighbour came to the Messenger of Allah ﷺ and said to him: He has died. He asked: Who told you? He said: I have seen him. The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: He has not died. He then returned.

A cry was again raised (for his death). He came to the Messenger of Allah ﷺ and said: He has died. The Prophet ﷺ said: He has not died. He then returned.

A cry was again raised over him. His wife said: Go to the Messenger of Allah ﷺ and inform him. The man said: O Allah, curse him.

He said: The man then went and saw that he had killed himself with an arrowhead. So he went to the Prophet ﷺ and informed him that he had died.

He asked: Who told you? He replied: I myself saw that he had killed himself with arrowheads. He asked: Have you seen him? He replied: Yes. He then said: Then I shall not pray over him.

حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ نُفَيْلٍ، حَدَّثَنَا زُهَيْرٌ، حَدَّثَنَا سِمَاكٌ، حَدَّثَنِي جَابِرُ بْنُ سَمُرَةَ، قَالَ مَرِضَ رَجُلٌ فَصِيحَ عَلَيْهِ فَجَاءَ جَارُهُ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ﷺ فَقَالَ لَهُ إِنَّهُ قَدْ مَاتَ . قَالَ " وَمَا يُدْرِيكَ " . قَالَ أَنَا رَأَيْتُهُ . قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ " إِنَّهُ لَمْ يَمُتْ " . قَالَ فَرَجَعَ فَصِيحَ عَلَيْهِ فَجَاءَ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ﷺ فَقَالَ إِنَّهُ قَدْ مَاتَ . فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ ﷺ " إِنَّهُ لَمْ يَمُتْ " . فَرَجَعَ فَصِيحَ عَلَيْهِ فَقَالَتِ امْرَأَتُهُ انْطَلِقْ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ﷺ فَأَخْبِرْهُ . فَقَالَ الرَّجُلُ اللَّهُمَّ الْعَنْهُ . قَالَ ثُمَّ انْطَلَقَ الرَّجُلُ فَرَآهُ قَدْ نَحَرَ نَفْسَهُ بِمِشْقَصٍ مَعَهُ فَانْطَلَقَ إِلَى النَّبِيِّ ﷺ فَأَخْبَرَهُ أَنَّهُ قَدْ مَاتَ فَقَالَ " مَا يُدْرِيكَ " . قَالَ رَأَيْتُهُ يَنْحَرُ نَفْسَهُ بِمَشَاقِصَ مَعَهُ . قَالَ " أَنْتَ رَأَيْتَهُ " . قَالَ نَعَمْ . قَالَ " إِذًا لاَ أُصَلِّي عَلَيْهِ " .
