And he walked in the streets or outside Medina and he saw this woman and she had lit a fire.

00:03:10--> 00:03:27

And on the fire she had put a pot of water. And she was pretending that she was cooking because she had nothing to cook. And she was hoping that the children will think that she's cooking and they will go to sleep. But they were out of hunger. They were sitting there and they were crying
