A similar tradition has also been narrated by Ibn 'Abbas through a different chain of narrators. This version has:

"Shroud him in two garments."

Abu Dawud said: The narrator Sulaiman said the Ayyub said: "his two garments," 'Amr said: "tow garments," Ibn 'Ubaid said that Ayyub said: "in two garments" and Amr said: "in his two garments." Sulaiman alone added: "do not put any perfume on him."
حَدَّثَنَا سُلَيْمَانُ بْنُ حَرْبٍ، وَمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عُبَيْدٍ، - الْمَعْنَى - قَالاَ حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادٌ، عَنْ عَمْرٍو، وَأَيُّوبَ، عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ جُبَيْرٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، نَحْوَهُ قَالَ ‏"‏ وَكَفِّنُوهُ فِي ثَوْبَيْنِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو دَاوُدَ قَالَ سُلَيْمَانُ قَالَ أَيُّوبُ ‏"‏ ثَوْبَيْهِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ وَقَالَ عَمْرٌو ‏"‏ ثَوْبَيْنِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ وَقَالَ ابْنُ عُبَيْدٍ قَالَ أَيُّوبُ ‏"‏ فِي ثَوْبَيْنِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ وَقَالَ عَمْرٌو ‏"‏ فِي ثَوْبَيْهِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ زَادَ سُلَيْمَانُ وَحْدَهُ ‏"‏ وَلاَ تُحَنِّطُوهُ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
