Narrated Umm Khalid, daughter of Sa'd b. al-'As:

Once the Messenger of Allah ﷺ was brought some garments among which was a small cloak with a border and black stripes. He said: Whom do you think to be more deserving for it ? The people kept silence. He said: Bring Umm Khalid. The she was carried to him and he put it on her, saying: Wear it out and make it ragged twice. Then he went on looking at red or yellow marks on it, and said: This is sanah, sanah, Umm Khalid. It means "beautiful" in the language of the Abyssinians.
حَدَّثَنَا إِسْحَاقُ بْنُ الْجَرَّاحِ الأَذَنِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو النَّضْرِ، حَدَّثَنَا إِسْحَاقُ بْنُ سَعِيدٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ أُمِّ خَالِدٍ بِنْتِ خَالِدِ بْنِ سَعِيدِ بْنِ الْعَاصِ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم أُتِيَ بِكِسْوَةٍ فِيهَا خَمِيصَةٌ صَغِيرَةٌ فَقَالَ ‏"‏ مَنْ تَرَوْنَ أَحَقَّ بِهَذِهِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ فَسَكَتَ الْقَوْمُ فَقَالَ ‏"‏ ائْتُونِي بِأُمِّ خَالِدٍ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ فَأُتِيَ بِهَا فَأَلْبَسَهَا إِيَّاهَا ثُمَّ قَالَ ‏"‏ أَبْلِي وَأَخْلِقِي ‏"‏ ‏.‏ مَرَّتَيْنِ وَجَعَلَ يَنْظُرُ إِلَى عَلَمٍ فِي الْخَمِيصَةِ أَحْمَرَ أَوْ أَصْفَرَ وَيَقُولُ ‏"‏ سَنَاهْ سَنَاهْ يَا أُمَّ خَالِدٍ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ وَسَنَاهْ فِي كَلاَمِ الْحَبَشَةِ الْحَسَنُ ‏.‏
