Abu Umamah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) drives away women from a janazah


Can you mention the reference for this and Arabic text?

“‘Amr ibn Qays reported that we were at a funeral and Abu Umamah saw women present so he chased them away.”



Imam Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shaybah (rahimahullah) has recorded the following narration:

‘Amr ibn Qays (rahimahullah) said: “We were once at a funeral and Abu Umamah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) was present. He saw some woman in attendance and chased them away.”

(Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, 11408)


The narrators are all reliable.


Arabic text

 عن عمرو بن قيس قال: كنا في جنازة وفيها أبو أمامة فرأى نسوة في الجنازة فطردهن


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
