Answer

Ummul Mu’minin Sayyidatuna ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) says, ‘Once Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) wanted to wipe off some mucus from Sayyiduna Usamah ibn Zayd (radiyallahu ‘anhuma). I said, ‘Allow me to do so’. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘O ‘Aaishah! Love him for I certainly love him.’

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3818)

 

Imam Tirmidhi has graded the Hadith authentic and Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahumallah) has also authenticated the Hadith.
