Chapter : Writing the knowledge.

Narated By Zayd ibn Thabit : Al-Muttalib ibn Abdullah ibn Hantab said: Zayd ibn Thabit entered upon Mu'awiyah and asked him about a tradition. He ordered a man to write it. Zayd said: The Apostle of Allah (pbuh) ordered us not to write any of his traditions. So he erased it.
