CHAPTER: THE MERITS OF'ABDULLAH B. JA'FAR (ALLAAH BE PLEASED WITH HIM)
Abdullah b. Abu Mulaika reported that Abdullah b. Jafar said to Ibn Zubair: Do you remember (the occasion) when we three (i. e. I, you and lbn 'Abbas) met Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and he mounted us (on his camel) but left you? He said: Yes.
This hadith has been transmitted on the authority of Habib b. Ash-Shahid.
Abdullah b. Ja'far reported that when Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) came back from a journey, the children of his family used to accord him welcome. It was in this way that once he came back from a journey and I went to him first of all. He mounted me before him. Then there came one of the two sons of Fatima and he mounted him behind him and this is how we three entered Medina riding on a beast.
Abdullah b. Ja'a'far reported that when Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) came back from a journey he met us. Once he met me, Hasan or Husain, and he mounted one of us before him and the other one behind him until we entered Medina.
Abdullah b. Ja'far reported that one day Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) mounted me behind him and narrated to me something in secret which I would narrate to none amongst people.
