Narrated Hurayth ibn al-Abajj as-Sulayhi:

That a woman of Banu Asad: One day I was with Zaynab, the wife of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ), and we were dyeing her clothes with red ochre. In the meantime the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) peeped us. When he saw the red ochre, he returned. When Zaynab saw this, she realised that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) disapproved of what she had done. She then took and washed her clothes and concealed all redness. The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) then returned and peeped, and when he did not see anything, he entered.

حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ عَوْفٍ الطَّائِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ، حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي، - قَالَ ابْنُ عَوْفٍ الطَّائِيُّ وَقَرَأْتُ فِي أَصْلِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ - قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي ضَمْضَمٌ - يَعْنِي ابْنَ زُرْعَةَ - عَنْ شُرَيْحِ بْنِ عُبَيْدٍ عَنْ حَبِيبِ بْنِ عُبَيْدٍ عَنْ حُرَيْثِ بْنِ الأَبَحِّ السَّلِيحِيِّ أَنَّ امْرَأَةً مِنْ بَنِي أَسَدٍ قَالَتْ كُنْتُ يَوْمًا عِنْدَ زَيْنَبَ امْرَأَةِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَنَحْنُ نَصْبُغُ ثِيَابًا لَهَا بِمَغْرَةٍ فَبَيْنَا نَحْنُ كَذَلِكَ إِذْ طَلَعَ عَلَيْنَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَلَمَّا رَأَى الْمَغْرَةَ رَجَعَ فَلَمَّا رَأَتْ ذَلِكَ زَيْنَبُ عَلِمَتْ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَدْ كَرِهَ مَا فَعَلَتْ فَأَخَذَتْ فَغَسَلَتْ ثِيَابَهَا وَوَارَتْ كُلَّ حُمْرَةٍ ثُمَّ إِنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم رَجَعَ فَاطَّلَعَ فَلَمَّا لَمْ يَرَ شَيْئًا دَخَلَ ‏.‏
