When ‘Alee ibn al-Husayn died, they washed him and noticed…

Ibn Al-Jawzi narrated:

وعن عمرو بن ثابت قال: لما مات علي بن الحسين فغسلوه جعلوا ينظرون إلى آثار سود في ظهره، فقالوا: ما هذا? فقالوا: كان يحمل جرب الدقيق ليلا على ظهره يعطيه فقراء أهل المدينة.

On the authority of ‘Amru ibn Thaabit who said: When ‘Alee ibn al-Husayn died, they washed him and noticed a black mark on his back, so they (some of them) said: “What is this?” So they (the others) said: “He used to carry a sack of flour on his back during the night and used to distribute it to the poor and needy of the people of Madeenah.”

[“Sifat as-Safwah”, 2/96].
