Meeting the children upon returning

72.)  Sayyidina Abdullah Ibn Ja`far (RA) narrates that when Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) returned from a journey, he used to be received by the children of his household.

He says: ‘Once when Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) returned, somebody hurriedly took me to receive him, and (being the first child that was met), Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) seated me in front of him. Thereafter, one of Sayyida Faatima’s (RA) children were brought and he was placed behind Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam). In this manner, the three of us entered Madina Tayyibah seated upon one animal.
