A Reminder ...

Ash-Shab’i said: “Zayd ibn Thabit prayed in his mother’s funeral prayer and then brought his mule near so he could mount it. Ibn ‘Abbas came and took hold of the stirrup. Zayd said, ‘Let go, nephew of the Messenger of Allah!’ He said, ‘This is the way we act with men of knowledge.’ Then Zayd kissed the hand of Ibn ‘Abbas. He said, ‘This is the way I was commanded to act with the people of the House of the Prophet.’”
Shaykh Saleh in his book says that it was mentioned by Ibn al-Qayyim in his commentary of al-Suhrawardi’s Awaarif al-Ma’aarif,
and Ibn Abbas said: “this is what we were commanded to do with your ulama” (the Prophet, salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam said: The most knowledgeable of you in inheritance matters is Zaid).
then zaid says: “this is what we were commanded to do with Ahl Bayt Nabiyyinna”
(salla Allahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam).
