Abu Dawud Book 14, Hadith Number 3179.

Chapter : Not known.

Narated By Jabir ibn Samurah : A man fell ill and a cry was raised (for his death). So his neighbour came to the Apostle of Allah (PBUH) and said to him: He has died. He asked: Who told you? He said: I have seen him. The Apostle of Allah (PBUH) said: He has not died. He then returned.

A cry was again raised (for his death). He came to the Apostle of Allah (PBUH) and said: He has died. The Prophet (PBUH) said: He has not died. He then returned.

A cry was again raised over him. His wife said: Go to the Apostle of Allah (PBUH) and inform him. The man said: O Allah, curse him.

He said: The man then went and saw that he had killed himself with an arrowhead. So he went to the Prophet (PBUH) and informed him that he had died.

He asked: Who told you? He replied: I myself saw that he had killed himself with arrowheads. He asked: Have you seen him? He replied: Yes. He then said: Then I shall not pray over him.
