What to Say to Someone Wearing New Clothes (163)
| Um Khãlid bin Sa`eed said: I came to the Messenger ,
my father was with me and I was wearing a yellow shirt. So the Messenger
said sanah sanah.(183)
She said: So I set off playing with the seal of prophethood, thus
my father prevented me. The Messenger of Allah
said leave her then the Messenger of Allah
said: 'Ablee was 'akhliqee, 'Ablee was 'akhliqee, 'Ablee was 'akhliqee.(184)
`Abdillãh said it thus remained until he noticed it, meaning
due to its having remained.

(184) Dr. Mohammed Muhsin Khãn,
in his translation of this supplication, stated it as follows: "May
you live so long that you will wear out many garments." This is
a non literal translation.
