She said: So I set off playing with the seal of prophethood, thus my father prevented me. The Messenger of Allah said leave her then the Messenger of Allah said: 'Ablee was 'akhliqee, 'Ablee was 'akhliqee, 'Ablee was 'akhliqee.(184)
`Abdillăh said it thus remained until he noticed it, meaning due to its having remained.
