Abu Dawud Book 6, Hadith Number 2271.

Chapter : Not known.

Narated By Ali ibn AbuTalib : Zayd ibn Harithah went out to Mecca and brought the daughter of Hamzah with him. Then Ja’far said: I shall take her; I have more right to her; she is my uncle’s daughter and her maternal aunt is my wife; the maternal aunt is like mother. Ali said: I am more entitled to take her. She is my uncle’s daughter. The daughter of the Apostle of Allah (PBUH) is my wife, and she has more right to her. Zayd said: I have more right to her. I went out and journeyed to her, and brought her with me. The Prophet (PBUH) came out.

The narrator mentioned the rest of the tradition. He (i.e. the Prophet) said: As for the girl, I decided in favour of Ja’far. She will live with her maternal aunt. The maternal aunt is like mother.
