Riyad as-Saliheen 567

Sahl bin Sa'd (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
A woman brought a woven piece of cloth to Messenger of Allah ﷺ and said to him: "I have woven this sheet with my own hands for you to wear." He accepted it as he was in need of it. He later came out wearing it as a lower garment. Someone said: "How nice it is! Kindly give it to me." Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, "Very well." He remained in our company for some time, then he went back, folded it and sent it to the man. The people said (to that man): "You did not do well. Messenger of Allah ﷺ wore it and he was in need of it, and you asked him for it when you are well aware that he ﷺ never refuses a request." He said: "I swear by Allah that I did not ask it for wearing. I asked him for it so that it might be my shroud after my death." Sahl (the narrator of this Hadith) said: And in fact it was used as his shroud.


وعن سهل بن سعد رضي الله عنه، أن امرأة جاءت إلى رسول الله ﷺ ببردة منسوجة فقالت: نسجتها لأكسوكها، فأخذها النبي ﷺ محتاجاً إليها ، فخرج إلينا وإنها إزاره، فقال فلان، اكسونيها ما أحسنها! فقال:” نعم” فجلس النبي ﷺ فى المجلس ثم رجع فطواها ثم أرسل به إليه: فقال له القوم: ما أحسنت! لبسها النبي ﷺ محتاجاً إليها ثم سألته وعلمت أنه لا يرد سائلاً ، فقال: إنى والله ما سألته لألبسها وإنما سألته لتكون كفني، قال سهل: فكانت كفنه. ((رواه البخاري))
