Narrated Jabir:

A man was buried with my father. I had a desire at heart for that (place for my burial). So I took him out after six months. I did not find any change (in his body) except a few hair that touched the earth.

حَدَّثَنَا سُلَيْمَانُ بْنُ حَرْبٍ، حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادُ بْنُ زَيْدٍ، عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ يَزِيدَ أَبِي مَسْلَمَةَ، عَنْ أَبِي نَضْرَةَ، عَنْ جَابِرٍ، قَالَ دُفِنَ مَعَ أَبِي رَجُلٌ فَكَانَ فِي نَفْسِي مِنْ ذَلِكَ حَاجَةٌ فَأَخْرَجْتُهُ بَعْدَ سِتَّةِ أَشْهُرٍ فَمَا أَنْكَرْتُ مِنْهُ شَيْئًا إِلاَّ شُعَيْرَاتٍ كُنَّ فِي لِحْيَتِهِ مِمَّا يَلِي الأَرْضَ ‏.‏
