Hadith: The Prophet, PBUH, passed by two graves and said: "They are being tormented, but they are not tormented for a major sin. One of them would not avoid urine, and the other used to walk about spreading malicious gossip."
عن عبد الله بن عباس -رضي الله عنهما- قال: مر النبي -صلى الله عليه وسلم- بقبرين، فقال: «إنهما ليُعذَّبان، وما يُعذَّبان في كبير؛ أما أحدهما: فكان لا يستتر من البول، وأما الآخر: فكان يمشي بالنميمة». [صحيح.] - [متفق عليه.] المزيــد ...
‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Abbaas, may Allah be pleased with them, reported: "The Prophet, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him, passed by two graves and said: 'They are being tormented, but they are not tormented for a major sin. One of them would not avoid urine, and the other used to walk about spreading malicious gossip.'"
The Prophet, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, and some of his Companions passed by two graves. Allah unveiled the condition of these two graves to him: their dwellers were being tormented for specific reasons. Therefore, the Prophet told his Companions so as to warn Msulim community. The dwellers of these two graves were being tormented for sins which they could have easily avoided.
One of them would not keep urine off his clothes when he urinated. Therefore, his clothes and his body would be spoiled. The other person used to spread malicious gossip. He would spread slander among people and thus create enmity and resentment, especially among friends and relatives. He would go about people and tell this person what another person had said, and then he would go and tell that person what this person had said, so he would bring about feuds and animosity between them. Meanwhile, Islam preaches love and affection, rather than disputes and broken relations, among the people.
However, the Prophet felt compassion for the dwellers of the two graves. So he took a green stalk from a palm tree, split it in two halves, and inserted one on each grave. The Companions asked the Prophet, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, why he did such a strange thing. He said: "Perhaps Allah will decrease their torment because of my intercession for them for as long as these stalks stay moist (green)."
This act was specific to the Prophet, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him.
