Showing Others how to Acquire Good

عن ابن مسعود رضي الله عنه قال أتى رجل النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم فسأله فقال ما عندي ما أعطيكه ولكن ائت فلانا فأتى الرجل فأعطاه فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم من دل على خير فله مثل أجر فاعله أو عامله  رواه ابن حبان في صحيحه ورواه البزار مختصرا الدال على الخير كفاعله  ورواه الطبراني في الكبير والأوسط من حديث سهل بن سعد  (الترغيب والترهيب 1/161)

Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas’ood (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that on one occasion a person came to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and asked for something. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied: “I do not have anything to give you, however go to so and so person (and ask him to fulfil your need).” The man then went to the person he was sent to and that person fulfilled his need. (Later on when Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was informed of the man’s need being fulfilled), Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “The one who shows a person the way to acquire good, he will receive the reward (of the good) just as the one who carries out the good receives reward.”
