(2047) What has come in the Statement of Allah: Then when the (Jumuah) SaIat is ended, you may disperse through the land, and seek of the Bounty of Allah... And Allah is the Best of Providers. (V.62:10,11) And also His Statement: Eat not up your property among yourselves unjustly except it be a trade among yourselves unjustly except it be a trade amongst you, by mutual consent... (V.4:29)
Narrated Abu Huraira: You people say that Abu Huraira tells many narrations from Allah's Apostle and you also wonder why the emigrants and Ansar do not narrate from Allah's Apostle as Abu Huraira does. My emigrant brothers were busy in the market while I used to stick to Allah's Apostle content with what fills my stomach; so I used to be present when they were absent and I used to remember when they used to forget, and my Ansari brothers used to be busy with their properties and I was one of the poor men of Suffa. I used to remember the narrations when they used to forget. No doubt, Allah's Apostle once said, Whoever spreads his garment till I have finished my present speech and then gathers it to himself, will remember whatever I will say. So, I spread my colored garment which I was wearing till Allah's Apostle had finished his saying, and then I gathered it to my chest. So, I did not forget any of that narrations.
