It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbas said:

“A man died whom the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) used to visit, and they buried him at night. When morning came, they told him. He said: ‘What kept you from telling me?’ They said: ‘It was night and it was dark, and we did not like to cause you any inconvenience.’ Then he went to the grave and offered the funeral prayer for him.”

حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو مُعَاوِيَةَ، عَنْ أَبِي إِسْحَاقَ الشَّيْبَانِيِّ، عَنِ الشَّعْبِيِّ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، قَالَ مَاتَ رَجُلٌ وَكَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ يَعُودُهُ فَدَفَنُوهُ بِاللَّيْلِ فَلَمَّا أَصْبَحَ أَعْلَمُوهُ فَقَالَ ‏

"‏ مَا مَنَعَكُمْ أَنْ تُعْلِمُونِي ‏"

‏ ‏.‏ قَالُوا كَانَ اللَّيْلُ وَكَانَتِ الظُّلْمَةُ فَكَرِهْنَا أَنْ نَشُقَّ عَلَيْكَ ‏.‏ فَأَتَى قَبْرَهُ فَصَلَّى عَلَيْهِ ‏.‏
