CHAPTER: PERMISSIBILITY OF CALLING ONE AS" MY SON," BESIDES ONE'S OWN SON
Anas b Malik reported that Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) addressed me: O My Son.
Mughira b. Shu'ba reported that none else had asked more questions from Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) about the Dajjal than I, but he simply said in a slight mood): O, myson, why are you worried because of him? He will not harm you. I said: The people think that he would have with him rivers of water and mountains of bread, whereupon he said: He would be more insignificant in the sight of Allaah than all these things (belonging to him).
This hadith has been reported on the authority of Ismail, with the same chain of transmitters but with a slight variation of wording.
