Kitāb-ut-Tawheed : Chapter 9:
Whoever seeks Blessing through a tree,a Stone, or the like

عن أبي واقد الليثي، قال: خرجنا مع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إلى حنين ونحن حدثاء عهد بكفر، وللمشركين سدرة يعكفون عندها وينوطون بها أسلحتهم، يقال لها: ذات أنواط، فمررنا بسدرة فقلنا: يا رسول الله أجعل لنا ذات أنواط كما لهم ذات أنواط فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: (الله أكبر! إنها السنن، قلتم ـ والذي نفسي بيده ـ كما قالت بنو إسرائيل لموسى: (اجعل لنا إلهاً كما لهم آلهة قال إنكم قوم تجهلون)  (لتركبن سنن من كان قبلكم

(رواه الترمذي وصححه )

Abū Wāqid al-Laythī said: “We went with Allah’s Messenger to Ḥunayn while we had just recently left disbelief. The mushrikīn had a lote tree which they used to frequent and hang their swords upon. They called it thāt al-anwāt (possessor of the medals of honor). Afterward, we passed by (another) lote tree, so we said:

‘O Messenger of Allah, make a thāt al-anwāt for us like their thāt al-anwāt.’

Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

«Allahu Akbar! This way that you have mentioned, by the One in whose Hand my soul is, is just like what the children of Isrā’īl asked Mūsā:

«O Mūsā! Make for us an ilahān (a god) as they have āliha (gods). He said: ‘Verily, you are a people who are behaving ignorantly.’» [Sūrah al-A’rāf (7):138]

You will follow the way of those before you.»
