Can you kindly source the following:

Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) was seen in a dream one year after he passed away. He was asked how did you fare? He replied “I just finished giving hisab now”.


Ibn Sa’d (rahimahullah) has recorded this incident in his ‘Tabaqatul Kubra’ with six chains approximately. Each version with variations in the wording.

Hafiz Abu Nu’aym and Hafiz Ibn ‘Asakir (rahimahumallah) have also cited this incident.

(Tabaqat Ibn Sa’d, vol. 3 pg. 286/7, Hilyatul Awliya, vol. 1 pg. 54 and Tarikh Dimashq, vol. 44 pg. 482)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
