Hadith on Hadith: The Prophet’s miracle for Abu Huraira’s memory

Abu Huraira reported: I said, “O Messenger of Allah, I hear many traditions from you, but I forget them.” The Prophet said, “Spread open your garment.” I spread it and he placed something from his hand into it, saying, “Wrap it.” I wrapped it around me, and then I never forgot a tradition ever again.

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ قُلْتُ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنِّي سَمِعْتُ مِنْكَ حَدِيثًا كَثِيرًا فَأَنْسَاهُ قَالَ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ابْسُطْ رِدَاءَكَ فَبَسَطْتُ فَغَرَفَ بِيَدِهِ فِيهِ ثُمَّ قَالَ ضُمَّهُ فَضَمَمْتُهُ فَمَا نَسِيتُ حَدِيثًا بَعْدُ
