(Sahih al-Bukhari 2295, Book 39, Hadith 6)


Narrated Salama bin Al-Akwa` (RA): A dead person was brought to the Prophet (peace be upon him) so that he might lead the funeral prayer for him. He asked, “Is he in debt?” When the people replied in the negative, he led the funeral prayer. Another dead person was brought and he asked, “Is he in debt?” They said, “Yes.” He (refused to lead the prayer and) said, “Lead the prayer of your friend.” Abu Qatada said, “O Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him)! I undertake to pay his debt.” Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) then led his funeral prayer.
