Abu Tha’labah Al Khushani (radiyallahu ‘anhu) passed away in Sajdah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

I have read that the Sahabi, Sayyiduna Abu Tha’labah Al Khushani (radiyallahu ‘anhu) passed away in prostration. Is there any reference for this?



Imam Abu Nu’aym and Imam Ibn ‘Asakir (rahimahumallah) have recorded this. Sayyiduna Abu Tha’labah Al Khushani (radiyallahu ‘anhu) would supplicate to Allah that he does not choke/suffocate due to the pangs of death. His daughter found him in Sajdah after he had passed away.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
