"I grant you refuge from me." They said to her, "Do you know who this
is?" She said, "No." They said, "This is Allah's Apostle who has come
to command your hand in marriage." She said, "I am very unlucky to lose
this chance." Then the Prophet and his companions went towards the shed
of Bani Sa'ida and sat there. Then he said, "Give us water, O Sahl!"

that Allah's Apostle has made." So Anas left it as it was.
I was with the
Prophet and the time for the 'Asr prayer became due. We had no water
with us except a little which was put in a vessel and was brought to
the Prophet . He put his hand into it and spread out his fingers and
then said, "Come along! Hurry up! All those who want to perform ablution.
The blessing is from Allah.'' I saw the water gushing out from his fingers.
So the people performed the ablution and drank, and I tried to drink
more of that water (beyond my thirst and capacity), for I knew that
it was a blessing. The sub-narrator said: I asked Jabir, "How many persons
were you then?" He replied, "We were one-thousand four hundred men."
