Dying and Being Buried in Madinah (Hadith No. 1609)

Bismillah.

Volume 3, Book 30, Number 114:

Narrated Zaid bin Aslam from his father:

Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) said, O Allah! Grant me martyrdom in Your cause, and let my death be in the city of Your Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam).”

Imam al-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) commented on this by saying:

It is mustahabb to seek to die in a virtuous land.
Al-Majmoo‘, 5/106.

In fact, he included it in a chapter entitled: Chapter on the recommendation for a person to pray that his death will be in the virtuous land. End quote.

Al-Adhkaar, p. 98

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said:

Whoever can manage to die in Madinah, let him die there, for I will intercede for whoever dies there.

Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, no. 3917. He said: (|It is) hasan saheeh ghareeb. It was classed as saheeh by al-Nasaa’i in al-Sunan al-Kubra, 1/602; by Ibn ‘Abd al-Haadi in al-Saarim al-Makki, p. 96; and by Shaykh al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, 4/1034

Al-Teebi said:

He recommended dying there but that is not in the hands of any person; rather that is up to the decree of Allah, may He be exalted. But he enjoined staying there and settling there and not leaving it, and that may be a cause of dying there. This is like the verse in which Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning): “then die not except in the Faith of Islâm (as Muslims – Islâmic Monotheism)” [al-Baqarah 2:132].
Quoted from Tuhfat al-Ahwadhi, 10/286

Ibn al-Haaj said:

It seems that whoever dies elsewhere then is transported and buried there will have a share of this intercession, but I did not see any shar‘i text (to that effect).
End quote from Fayd al-Qadeer, 6/70
