Sahabi Rasool came in the dream
In 1932, Hudhayfa ibn al-Yamān رَضِيَ ٱللَّٰهُ عَنْهُ appeared in the dream of King of Iraq Faisal I bin Al-Hussein bin Ali Al-Hashemi informing him that water has started spilling to his grave and the grave of Jabir bin Abdullah رَضِيَ ٱللَّٰهُ عَنْهُ at the bank of the river Tigris.
Who was Hudhayfa ibn al-Yamān?
Hudhayfa ibn al-Yamān رَضِيَ ٱللَّٰهُ عَنْهُ was born in Makkah and raised in Madina and therefore, he was given a choice to be called either a Muhajir or Ansari.
He was appointed the governor of Kufa and Ctesiphon (modern Iraq). He died in 656 A.D.
Who was Jabir bin Abdullah?
Gate 84 of Masjid al-Haram is in the name of Jabir bin Abdullah رَضِيَ ٱللَّٰهُ عَنْهُ. His father Abdullah ibn Amr رَضِيَ ٱللَّٰهُ عَنْهُ was martyred in the battle of Uhud and he did not let Jabir fight the battle as he wanted him to take care of his 7 daughters.
Jabir bin Abdullah رَضِيَ ٱللَّٰهُ عَنْهُ embraced Islam at the age of 7. He was poisoned by Hajjaj bin Yusuf when he was 94 and buried in Baghdad at the bank of the river Tigris.
The graves were opened
On the instruction of King Faisal, the graves were opened in the presence of the Egyptian King Fu’ād al-Awwal.
Both the bodies were seen as completely preserved, intact, fresh, and illuminated. Their bodies smelt heavenly and they looked more alive than those who walk on the earth. Their bodies were then moved and reburied.
Where is their tomb now?
The bodies of Hudhayfa ibn al-Yamān رَضِيَ ٱللَّٰهُ عَنْهُ and Jabir bin Abdullah رَضِيَ ٱللَّٰهُ عَنْهُ were carried to the tomb of Salman Farsi رَضِيَ ٱللَّٰهُ عَنْهُ and buried there.
