When Passing by the Graves of the Polytheists (152)
Salem related that his father said: A Bedouin came to the Prophet and said: O Messenger of Allah my father used to maintain the ties of kinship, and he was so, and he was so. So where is he? He said: In Hell-fire. He said: It was as if that disturbed him, so he said: O Messenger of Allah, where, then, is your father? The Messenger of Allah then said: Wherever you pass by the grave of a polytheist give him tidings (171) of Hell-fire. He said: The Bedouin later accepted Islam and said:The Messenger of Allah has given me an assignment. I would not pass by the grave of a Kãfir except that I would give him tidings of Hell-fire.

(171) Allah The Exalted said <<And proclaim a grievious chastisement to those who reject Faith>> Surah Barã'ah (#9), V. 3


At-Tirmidhi said it was comely and Al-Albãni agreed. Al-Albãni said An-Nisã'ee and Ibn Majah also reported it with sound ascription and he included it in The Authentic of Good Sayings
