Umar ibn Al-Khattaab said:

“When ‘Abdullaah ibn Ubayy ibn Salool died, the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was called to pray over him. So when he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, stood, I went up quickly to him and said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, are you going to pray over Ibn Ubayy, when he said such and such (bad thing about you) on a certain day?” I recounted some of what he had said. The Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, smiled and said: ‘’’Umar, get away from me.” When I spoke to him persistently, he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “I have been given a choice and I have chosen. If I knew that he would be forgiven if I increased more than seventy times, I would have increased

(referring to the verse 80 of Chapter 9)

The Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, prayed over him and then left. It was not long before the two verses of [Quran: 9] were revealed (which mean):

«And do not pray [the funeral prayer, O Muhammad], over any of them who have died [ever] or stand at his grave. Indeed, they disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger and died while they were defiantly disobedient.»

[Quran: 9:84]

Later I was amazed at my audacity towards the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, that day, and Allah and His Messenger know best.”

Ibn Hajar said: “So the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, endured the way ‘Umar spoke to him in that situation, and he only turned to him and smiled.”
