Abu Dawud 20 (Book 1, Hadith 20)

Narrated by Zuhayr bin Harb and Hannad bin As-Sarri, they said: We were informed by Wakee’, who narrated from Al-A’mash, who said: I heard Mujahid narrating from Tawus, from Ibn Abbas, who said: “The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) passed by two graves and said, ‘Verily, they are being punished, and they are not being punished for something major. As for one of them, he did not protect himself from urine, and as for the other, he used to go about with calumny.’ Then he called for a fresh palm-leaf stalk, split it into two pieces, and planted one on each grave, saying, ‘Perhaps their punishment will be lightened as long as these do not dry.'” Hannad said, “He used to seek protection.” This should be “He did not protect himself from urine.”

حَدَّثَنَا زُهَيْرُ بْنُ حَرْبٍ، وَهَنَّادُ بْنُ السَّرِيِّ، قَالاَ حَدَّثَنَا وَكِيعٌ، حَدَّثَنَا الأَعْمَشُ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ مُجَاهِدًا، يُحَدِّثُ عَنْ طَاوُسٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، قَالَ مَرَّ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم عَلَى قَبْرَيْنِ فَقَالَ ‏”‏ إِنَّهُمَا يُعَذَّبَانِ وَمَا يُعَذَّبَانِ فِي كَبِيرٍ أَمَّا هَذَا فَكَانَ لاَ يَسْتَنْزِهُ مِنَ الْبَوْلِ وَأَمَّا هَذَا فَكَانَ يَمْشِي بِالنَّمِيمَةِ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ ثُمَّ دَعَا بِعَسِيبٍ رَطْبٍ فَشَقَّهُ بِاثْنَيْنِ ثُمَّ غَرَسَ عَلَى هَذَا وَاحِدًا وَعَلَى هَذَا وَاحِدًا وَقَالَ ‏”‏ لَعَلَّهُ يُخَفَّفُ عَنْهُمَا مَا لَمْ يَيْبَسَا ‏”‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ هَنَّادٌ ‏”‏ يَسْتَتِرُ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ مَكَانَ ‏”‏ يَسْتَنْزِهُ ‏”‏ ‏.‏
