Once she was coming to Sayyidah Aisha and Sayyidah Hafsah, both of them knew her weakness and said to her in a jovial mood, "Have you heard that the Dajjal has made his appearance!?"
She was alarmed and she entered a tent where certain people were busy kindling fire.
Both the ladies, Aisha and Hafsah came running to the Holy Prophet (sal Allah alaihi wasalam) and informed him of the joke they had with Sayyidah Saudah.
The Holy Prophet quietly came to the entrance of the tent and said, "The Dajjal has not yet made his appearance." On hearing this, Saudah came out of the tent and cleared her garments of the cobweb which had clung to her dress in the tent.
