3. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Khalid from his father from fadalah from Rifa‘ah who has said the following: “I once heard abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, saying, ‘When Allah, most Blessed, most High, granted good health to Ayyub, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, he looked to the Israelites who had their plantations. He raised his eyes to the sky and said, ‘O Lord, my Master, this is Your slave Ayyub who was in suffering and You granted him good health but he does not have any plantation. These are people of banu Israel who have their plantations.’ Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, sent him revelation that said, ‘Take a handful from you rosary beads and use it as seed .’ His rosary beads had salt in it, Ayyub, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, took a handful from it and used it as seed and what grew was this lintel. You call it chickpeas and we call it lintels.’”
