The Seal of Prophethood

Hadith No: 19

Narrated: Ilbaa bin Ahmar Al-yashkari
that the Sahaabi, Abu Zayd Amr bin Akhtab Al-Ansaari Radhiallahu Anhu said to me: "Rasullullah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) once asked me to massage his waist. When I began massaging the back, accidently (by chance) my fingers touched the Seal of Prophet (SAW)hood. 'Ilbaa (Radhiallahu anhu) says: 'I asked Amr (Radhiallahu anhu), what is the Seal of Prophet (SAW)hood?' He replied: 'It was a collection of few hair'".


This is not contrary to the first hadith, because there was hair around the Seal of Prophethood. He only mentioned the hair.
