Go back until I ask the people.' So he asked the people and Al-Mughirah bin Shubah said: 'I was present with the Messenger of Allah (saw) and he gave her (the grandmother) one sixth.' Abu Bakr said: 'Is there anyone else with you (who will corroborate what you say)?' Muhammad bin Maslamah Al-Ansari stood up and said something like what Mughirah bin Shubah had said. So Abu Bakr applied it in her case." "Then the other grandmother, on the father's side came to Umar and asked him for her inheritance. He said: 'You have nothing according to the book of Allah. The ruling that was passed applied to someone other than you, and I will not make any addition to the shares of inheritance. But it is one sixth. If there are two of you then it is to be shared between you, and if one of you is alone then it all belongs to her.' " Sahih

Remembrance after salam
لا إلهَ إلاّ اللّه, وحدَهُ لا شريكَ لهُ، لهُ الملكُ ولهُ الحَمد، وهوَ على كلّ شيءٍ قدير، لا حَـوْلَ وَلا قـوَّةَ إِلاّ بِاللهِ، لا إلهَ إلاّ اللّـه، وَلا نَعْـبُـدُ إِلاّ إيّـاه, لَهُ النِّعْـمَةُ وَلَهُ الفَضْل وَلَهُ الثَّـناءُ الحَـسَن، لا إلهَ إلاّ اللّهُ مخْلِصـينَ لَـهُ الدِّينَ وَلَوْ كَـرِهَ الكـافِرون

None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone, without partner, to Him belongs all sovereignty and praise and He is over all things omnipotent. There is no might nor power except with Allah, none has the right to be worshipped except Allah and we worship none except Him. For Him is all favour, grace, and glorious praise. None has the right to be worshipped except Allah and we are sincere in faith and devotion to Him although the disbelievers detest it.
