Hadith no. 2245 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.
Volume 3, Book 47, Number 747:
Narrated As-Sa’b bin Jaththama (radiallaahu `anhu):
An onager was presented to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) at the place called Al-Abwa’ or Waddan, but Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) rejected it. When the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) noticed the signs of sorrow on the giver’s face he said, “We have not rejected your gift, but we are in the state of Ihram.” (i.e. if we were not in a state of Ihram we would have accepted your gift.
Volume 3, Book 47, Number 748:
Narrated Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):
The people used to look forward for the days of my (‘Aisha’s) turn to send gifts to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) in order to please him.
So everyone knew about his love for Aisha (radiallaahu `anhu) and they knew that he’d be the happiest with her.. why not add to that happiness to gain closeness to him, right? Talk about “smart” gifts.
Ah! Can’t wait to meet him and his family in Jannah. May Allah make it happen. <3
Sometimes I wonder if I were a butterfly, with flaming shades on my wings,
Fluttering here and resting there, hopping and flitting from leaves to twigs,
I would live in gardens green with trees and bushes plentiful,
Wild flowers would be my haven, their scents would make my tummy full
Oh what a life would that be to lead, with nature all around my feet
But then what about that place of which no ear has heard nor eye has seen?
To earn which, the worst of pains and bitter sorrows you have to endure,
The price is high, the pennies worth it but every step makes you sore,
Would it be legit for me to make it my residence eternal, my resting place?
Where everlasting blessings tempt one, but oh for the pleasure of seeing His Face!
