Chapter: The saying of the deceased while he is being carried on the bier, Take me quickly.

Hadith Number 1316


Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "When a funeral is ready and the men carry the deceased on their necks (shoulders), if it was pious then it will say, 'Present me quickly', and if it was not pious, then it will say, 'Woe to it (me), where are they taking it (me)?' And its voice is heard by everything except mankind and if he heard it he would fall unconscious."
