Tell us what the descendants of Moses preach; Thana Huawdah bin Khalifa, he said: Thana Aufun, from Khalas ibn Amr, from Abu Hurayrah may Allah be pleased with him, The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:


Before a woman breastfeed her son a Persian passed by asking arrogantly for alms, the woman said: God does not even wish to see my son such a Persian, the boy took the breast and said: Oh God, do not make me like this Persian, then he returned to breast suckling. Then there passed by an Ethiopian or Zanji, she said: I forbid my son in God to die like this Ethiopian or Zanji, he said: Oh God, grant me her death. His mother said: My son, I asked your Lord to make you like this Persian, so I said: God does not make me like him. And I asked our Lord Almighty that this Ethiopian or Zanji is not like to you, I asked your Lord. The boy said: You asked your Lord to make me like a man from the people of Hell, and Abyssinia or Zanji were her people and they beat her and said: God willing.
