Chapter No. 50, Witnesses
Hadith No: 819
Narrated/Authority of Abdullah bin Umar
Allah's Apostle (SAW) and Ubai bin Kab Al-Ansari went to the garden where Ibn Saiyyad used to live. When Allah's Apostle (SAW) entered (the garden), he (i.e. Allah's Apostle (SAW)) started hiding himself behind the date palms as he wanted to hear secretly the talk of Ibn Saiyyad before the latter saw him. Ibn Saiyyad wrapped with a soft decorated sheet was lying on his bed murmuring. Ibn Saiyyad's mother saw the Prophet (SAW) hiding behind the stems of the date-palms. She addressed Ibn Saiyyad saying, "O Saf, this is Muhammad." Hearing that Ibn Saiyyad stopped murmuring (or got cautious), the Prophet (SAW) said, "If she had left him undisturbed, he would have revealed his reality." (See Hadith No. 290, Vol 4 for details)
