أخبرنا الحاكم أبو حامد أحمد بن الحسين بن علي ببلخ، قال: حدثنا محمد بن العباس، قال: حدثنا إبراهيم بن إسحاق، قال: حدثني إبراهيم بن سعيد، قال: حدثنا أبو نعيم قال: حدثنا عصام بن قدامة، عن عكرمة، عن ابن عباس، عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله أنه قال لنسائه: ليت شعري أيتكن صاحبة الجمل الأدبب التي تنبحها كلاب الحوأب فيقتل عن يمينها وعن يسارها قتلى كثيرة ثم تنجو بعد ما كادت.
