What is Said When Placing the Body in the Grave (161)
When the Prophet would finish burying a dead person he would stand over him and say: 'Istaghfiroo li'akheekum wa saloo lahu attathbeeta fa'innahu 'al'ãna yus'alu (179)

(179) Ask forgiveness for your brother, and ask stability for him, for he is now being questioned.


Al-`Adawee said it was comely and that it was reported by Abu Dãwood, page 550 of volume 3; Al-Hãkim, #370/1, who said it was sound according to the conditions of Al-Bukhãri and Muslim; Ath-Thahabi who said it was sound; Al-Bayhaqi, 56/4; and others. Al-Albãni said it was sound in his Saheeh Al-Jãmi` As-Sagheer wa Ziyãdatih #4760.
