Abu Dawud Book 6, Hadith Number 2219.

Chapter : Not known.

Narated By Habibah, daughter of Sahl al-Ansariyyah : Amrah, daughter of AbdurRahman ibn Sa’d ibn Zurarah, reported on the authority of Habibah, daughter of Sahl al-Ansariyyah: She (Habibah) was the wife of Thabit ibn Qays ibn Shimmas. The Apostle of Allah (PBUH) came out one morning and found Habibah by his door.

The Apostle of Allah (PBUH) said: Who is this? She replied: I am Habibah, daughter of Sahl. He asked: What is your case? She replied: I and Thabit ibn Qays, referring to her husband, cannot live together.

When Thabit ibn Qays came, the Apostle of Allah (PBUH) said to him: This is Habibah, daughter of Sahl, and she has mentioned (about you) what Allah wished to mention.

Habibah said: Apostle of Allah, all that he gave me is with me.

The Apostle of Allah (PBUH) said to Thabit ibn Qays: Take it from her. So he took it from her, and she lived among her people (relatives).
