The famous Muhaddith, Hadrat Jubair – may Allah be pleased with him, takes an oath and swears that, “Me and another famous Muhaddith, Hadrat Hameed Taweel, placed the blessed body of Hadrat Shaikhul Hadith Sayyiduna Thabit bin Aslam Banaani – may Allah be pleased with him – in the grave. When we started to gather the stones around the grave suddenly one of the stones fell into the grave. Obviously, the inside of the grave became clear to us. We were shocked to see the great Saint, Hadrat Sayyiduna Thabit bin Aslam Banaani – may Allah be pleased with him – standing in his grave an reading the Salaah. His state was such that for forty years, he never missed the Tahajjud Salaah. He used to also cry and make Du’a in the following words, ‘O Allah, if ever You give someone the power to perform their Salaah in their grave, I ardently request that you give me the strength to do so.’ From what we saw in his grave, it was quite apparent that Allah Almighty had certainly accepted this Du’a of his.” (Sharahus Sudur, 78)
