|Authentic Supplications of the Prophet
On Asking Permission to Enter (211)
| 'Abi Sa`eed 'Al-Khudree said that he was in a seated gathering
place of the 'Ansãr, whereupon, Abu Musã came as if
he was frightened. So he said: I asked permission to enter upon `Umar
three times; whereupon, he did not give me permission, so I returned.
Then he said: What prevented you? I said: I asked permission thrice,
whereupon, no permission was given to me, so I returned, and the Messenger
has said: "If one of you asks permission three times, and is not given
permission, then let him return." He then said: By Allah you shall
establish proof for this. [So] Is there one of you that has heard
this from the Prophet ?
`Ubay bin Ka`b said: By Allah none shall get up with you except the
youngest of the people, and I was the youngest of the people, so I
got up along with him, and informed `Umar that the Prophet
had said that.
'Al-`Adawee said it was sound; that it was reported by Al-Bukhãri,
page 26 of volume 11 of Fath Al-Bãree; Muslim, page
130 of volume 14; 'Abu Dãwood, page 370 of volume 5; and
Ibn Mãjah, #3706.
