Ali bin Abi Talib, Dua For A Dead Companion

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas (raa: Radiallahu Anhu): While I was standing amongst the people who were invoking Allah for Umar bin Al-Khattab (raa: Radiallahu Anhu) who was lying (dead) on his bed, a man behind me rested his elbows on my shoulder and said,

“(O ‘Umar!) May Allah bestow His Mercy on you. I always hoped that Allah will keep you with your two companions (raa: Radiallahu Anhu), for I often heard Allah’s Apostle (saws: Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam) saying, “I (raa: Radiallahu Anhu), Abu Bakr (raa: Radiallahu Anhu) and ‘Umar (raa: Radiallahu Anhu) were (somewhere).”

“I (raa: Radiallahu Anhu), Abu Bakr (raa: Radiallahu Anhu) and ‘Umar (raa: Radiallahu Anhu) did (something).”

“I (raa: Radiallahu Anhu), Abu Bakr (raa: Radiallahu Anhu) and ‘Umar (raa: Radiallahu Anhu) set out.’ So I hoped that Allah will keep you with both of them.”

I turned back to see that the speaker was Ali bin Abi Talib.
