There was a sufi by the name of Bishr bin Hârith who used to come and visit her. Once Bishr fell ill, so she came to visit him. Imâm ’Ahmad bin Hambal also came to visit him. He heard that this ’Âminah came from Ramlah to visit Bishr, so he said to Bishr: "Tell her to make du‘â for me." Bishr asked her to do so. She made the following du‘â: "O Allah! Bishr and ’Ahmad are seeking refuge from jahannam . You grant refuge to both of them." Imâm ’Ahmad says that in the night, a piece of paper fell from above. On it, Bismillah was written and thereafter the following words were written: "We have accepted the du‘â and We have many other bounties in stock." Lesson: Glory be to Allah! How her du‘â got accepted! O women! All these blessings are on account of obedience. The person who fulfills the commands of Allah, Allah fulfills his du‘âs. Therefore try to fulfil all His commands.

Competition for Worldy Wealth
Narrated by `Amr bin `Auf Radiallahu Anhu:
(An ally of the tribe of Bani 'Amir bin Lu'ai and one of those who had witnessed the battle of Badr with Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)) Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) sent Abu 'Ubaida bin Al-Jarrah Radiallahu Anhu to Bahrain to collect the Jizya tax. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) had concluded a peace treaty with the people of Bahrain and appointed Al 'Ala bin Al-Hadrami as their chief; Abu Ubaida Radiallahu Anhu arrived from Bahrain with the money. The Ansar heard of Abu 'Ubaida's Radiallahu Anhu arrival which coincided with the Fajr (morning) prayer led by Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). When Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam finished the prayer, they came to him. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) smiled when he saw them and said, "I think you have heard of the arrival of Abu 'Ubaida and that he has brought something." They replied, "Yes, O Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)! " He said, "Have the good news, and hope for what will please you. By Allah, I am not afraid that you will become poor, but I am afraid that worldly wealth will be given to you in abundance as it was given to those (nations) before you, and you will start competing each other for it as the previous nations competed for it, and then it will divert you (from good) as it diverted them."
