Hadith on Janazah: The Prophet performs funeral prayer for a black person

Abu Huraira reported: A black man, or a black woman, used to maintain the mosque and they died. The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, asked about them and they said, “They have died.” The Prophet said, “Why did you not tell me about them? Show me their grave.” They came to their grave and the Prophet prayed over them.

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ أَنَّ رَجُلًا أَسْوَدَ أَوْ امْرَأَةً سَوْدَاءَ كَانَ يَقُمُّ الْمَسْجِدَ فَمَاتَ فَسَأَلَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عَنْهُ فَقَالُوا مَاتَ قَالَ أَفَلَا كُنْتُمْ آذَنْتُمُونِي بِهِ دُلُّونِي عَلَى قَبْرِهِ أَوْ قَالَ قَبْرِهَا فَأَتَى قَبْرَهَا فَصَلَّى عَلَيْهَا
