Said bin Abi Maryam narrates from
Muhammad bin Matraf narrating from
Abu Hazim narrating from
Sahl bin Sad bin Malik.
Narrated Abu Hazim from Sahl bin Sa`d:
The Prophet said, "I am your predecessor (forerunner) at the Lake-Fount, and whoever will pass by
there, he will drink from it and whoever will drink from it, he will never be thirsty. There will come to
me some people whom I will recognize, and they will recognize me, but a barrier will be placed
between me and them." Abu Hazim added: An-Nu`man bin Abi `Aiyash, on hearing me, said. "Did
you hear this from Sahl?" I said, "Yes." He said, " I bear witness that I heard Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri
saying the same, adding that the Prophet said: 'I will say: They are of me (i.e. my followers). It will be
said, 'You do not know what they innovated (new things) in the religion after you left'. I will say, 'Far
removed, far removed (from mercy), those who changed (their religion) after me." Abu Huraira
narrated that the Prophet said, "On the Day of Resurrection a group of companions will come to me,
but will be driven away from the Lake-Fount, and I will say, 'O Lord (those are) my companions!' It
will be said, 'You have no knowledge as to what they innovated after you left; they turned apostate as
renegades (reverted from Islam).
حَدَّثَنَا سَعِيدُ بْنُ أَبِي مَرْيَمَ، حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ مُطَرِّفٍ، حَدَّثَنِي أَبُو حَازِمٍ، عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ سَعْدٍ، قَالَ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم
" إِنِّي فَرَطُكُمْ عَلَى الْحَوْضِ، مَنْ مَرَّ عَلَىَّ شَرِبَ، وَمَنْ شَرِبَ لَمْ يَظْمَأْ أَبَدًا، لَيَرِدَنَّ عَلَىَّ أَقْوَامٌ أَعْرِفُهُمْ وَيَعْرِفُونِي، ثُمَّ يُحَالُ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَهُمْ ".
