|Authentic Supplications of the Prophet
What is Said When Placing the Body in the Grave (160)
| The Prophet
said: "When you place your dead in the grave then say Bismillãhi
wa `alã sunnati rasoolil-lãhi.(178)
In the name of Allah, and according to the way of the Messenger
The wording here is that of 'Abu Dãwood. Al-Albãni
said it was sound in his Saheeh Al-Jãmi` As-Sagheer wa
Ziyãdatih, #832. Al-`Adawee reported the other wording
which replaces the word millati for the word sunnati.
He menttioned that the latter was according to 'Abu Dãwood's
report, page 546 of volume 3. He said it was sound, and that it
was also reported by Ibn Mãjah, #1550; At-Tirmithi, page
146 of volume 4, who said it was strange, speaking of the channel
that reached him; Al-Bayhaqi, 55/4; and 'Al-Hãkim, 366/1,
who said it sound according to the conditions of Al-Bukhãri
and Muslim. 'At-thahabi agreed.
