pot of goldعن أبي هريرة  رضي الله عنه قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : اشترى رجل ممن كان قبلكم عقارا من رجل فوجد الذي اشترى العقار في عقاره جرة فيها ذهب فقال له الذي اشترى العقار : خذ ذهبك عني إنما اشتريت العقار ولم ابتع منك الذهب . فقال بائع الأرض : إنما بعتك الأرض وما فيها فتحاكما إلى رجل فقال الذي تحاكما إليه : ألكما ولد ؟ فقال أحدهما : لي غلام وقال الآخر : لي جارية . فقال : أنكحوا الغلام الجارية وأنفقوا عليهما منه وتصدقوا. (البخاري رقم 3472)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: There was once a man who purchased some land from another. The purchaser found an earthenware utensil filled with gold buried in the ground. Hence he went to the seller and told him: “Take your gold, for I have purchased from you only the land and not the gold.” The former owner replied: “Well! I have sold you the land together with whatever is in it.”

Hence both the buyer and seller presented their case to a third person in order to resolve their dispute. He asked them: “Do you have any children?” One of them replied: “I have a son.” The other replied: “I have a daughter.” The one presiding over their case then said: “Get the boy married to the girl. Spend some of this wealth in seeing to their needs and give the rest in charity.”
