Bunanah, female client of 'Abd al-Rahman b. Hayyan al-Ansari told that when she was with 'Aishah a girl wearing little tinkling bells was brought in to her. She ordered that they were not to bring her in where she was unless they cut off her little bells. She said:

I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say: The angels do not enter a house in which there is a bell.

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الرَّحِيمِ، حَدَّثَنَا رَوْحٌ، حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ جُرَيْجٍ، عَنْ بُنَانَةَ، مَوْلاَةِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ حَسَّانَ الأَنْصَارِيِّ عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، قَالَتْ بَيْنَمَا هِيَ عِنْدَهَا إِذْ دُخِلَ عَلَيْهَا بِجَارِيَةٍ وَعَلَيْهَا جَلاَجِلُ يُصَوِّتْنَ فَقَالَتْ لاَ تُدْخِلْنَهَا عَلَىَّ إِلاَّ أَنْ تَقْطَعُوا جَلاَجِلَهَا وَقَالَتْ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ ‏

"‏ لاَ تَدْخُلُ الْمَلاَئِكَةُ بَيْتًا فِيهِ جَرَسٌ ‏"
