On carrying the bier quickly

Riyad as-Salihin (The Meadows of the Righteous)

by Imam Nawawi

158. Chapter: On carrying the bier quickly

941. Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Carry the bier quickly. If the dead person was righteous, it is good you are advancing him to. If he was other than that, then it is an evil your are removing from your necks." [Agreed upon]

942. Abu Sa'id al-Khudri reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "When a body is laid out and the men carry it on their shoulders, if it was righteous, it says, 'Take me forward,' and it was it not righteous, it says, 'Woe to me, where are you taking it?'' Everything except man hears its voice. If he were to hear it, he would faint." [al-Bukhari]
