Nuqadah Ibn ‘Abd Allah Ibn Khalaf Hadrami Ibn Amir said: We came
to you travelling in dark nights in a year of drought although you never
sent a force against us. Thereupon it was revealed: (“They make it a
favour unto thee (Muhammad) that they have surrendered unto Him”.
Qur’an, 49:17) There were certain men of Banu al-Zinyah, i.e., they were

Allah lbn Khalaf Ibn `Umayrah Ibn Murrà Ibn Sa’d lbn Malik al-Asadi:
O Nuqadah! Find a she-camel for me which yields milk and (might also
be used) for riding, and do not separate her from her young one. He
made a search in his flock but did not find one. However; he found one
with his uncle’s son, who was called Sinan Ibn Zufayr. He obtained from
him and took her to the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him. He
touched her udder and called Naqadah who milked her leaving some
milk (in her udder). He said: O Nuqadah! leave some of it so that it may
bring more. Then the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, drank the
milk and made his Comrades also drink the milk of that she-camel; and
Nuqadah drank of what had been left by him (Prophet). Then he said: 0
Allah! bless the she-camel and (the person) who gifted it. Nuqadah said: I
said: Prophet of Allah, what about him who brought her: He said (May
Allah bless him) who brought her.
