Marwan ibn al-Hakam's Last Conversation with Abu Hurayrah (r.a.)

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam ath-Thabarani (r.a.) recorded that when Abu Hurayrah (r.a.) was on his deathbed, the cursed Marwan entered upon him and said, “Since I have been acquainted with you, there is nothing that upsets me about you except your love for Hasan and Husayn.”

Abu Hurayrah (r.a.) replied, “I recall that I was in a journey with the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) once and he heard the cries of Hasan and Husayn, so he rushed towards them and asked, ‘What is the matter with my sons?’

He was told, ‘Thirst.’  So, he looked for water but none was found.  So, he then took one of the boys in his arms and made him suck his blessed tongue until he stopped crying.  Then he did the same with the other boy.  So, do you not want me to love those two after what I saw from Rasulullah (s.a.w.)?”
