When the messenger came to her she was so overwhelmed and you can imagine and happy within us that she immediately gave this messenger a lot of gifts of what she had. All the Muslims of Messina were called for the marriage. She stayed married to rasool Allah salatu salam, although they did not consume the marriage because she stayed in Abba Samia, one of the uniqueness of this marriage, although the the groom was not there, the neighbors did something unique. He invited all the Muslims who lived in Abyssinia to the walima, which is the celebration of marriage, and even made sure they stay and they eat, he served food. And
he told them that's what is the Sunnah of Rasulullah salatu salam that you celebrate the marriage and you eat and you drink. She received gifts from the wives of an angel she for her marriage. And she again gifted those who attended and the people who took care of her also money, she was very generous.

However, he was so happy when he heard the news that his daughter married are solely Salatu was Salam. And in fact there is a verse in the Quran was revealed. For this occasion. It's an Surah to move into Hanaa or the chapter 60 and the verses seven Isola who a

removed there was a blanket on it, and she removed it. And she said to him, don't sit there.
