  Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh


Abu Hurayrah, Jaabir bin Abdillaah and other companions reported that Allaah's Messenger (sallalaahu alayhi wa salem) announced to the people at Al-Madeenah the death of Ashumah an-Najashi , the ruler of Al-Habashah (Ethiopia) on the same day that he died. He said, "A brother of yours in another land - a righteous servant of Allaah, has died today.   So rise to pray for him and seek Allaah's forgiveness for your brother."  They asked him,"Who is he?"  He replied, "An-Najashi."   He led them to the musalla where he formed them into 2 rows behind him.  They stood and prayed as though the Janaazah was right in front of them.   Allaah's Messenger (sallalaahu alayhi wa salem) led them in prayer making for takbirs.

This is a collective narration recorded by Al-Bukhari, Muslim and many others (Ahkaam ul-Janaa'iz pg 116-117).

I hope this to be of use to you.  There is also some speech by ibnul-Qayyim regarding this hadeeth if require it.

When a man knows his ownself, speech of the people is of no benefit to him!
