The tradition mentioned above has also been transmitted by Abu Qilabah from Abu Zaid through a different chain of narrators to the same effect:

A man of the Ansar... The Prophet (ﷺ) said: Had I been present before his burial, he would not have been buried in a Muslim cemetry.

حَدَّثَنَا وَهْبُ بْنُ بَقِيَّةَ، حَدَّثَنَا خَالِدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، - هُوَ الطَّحَّانُ - عَنْ خَالِدٍ، عَنْ أَبِي قِلاَبَةَ، عَنْ أَبِي زَيْدٍ، أَنَّ رَجُلاً، مِنَ الأَنْصَارِ بِمَعْنَاهُ وَقَالَ - يَعْنِي النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم - ‏

"‏ لَوْ شَهِدْتُهُ قَبْلَ أَنْ يُدْفَنَ لَمْ يُدْفَنْ فِي مَقَابِرِ الْمُسْلِمِينَ ‏"
