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)

Hazrat 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.'”

Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr bin Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reported, “Whoever sends salutations upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once, Allah Ta‘ala and His angels will send seventy mercies and blessings upon him in return of his one Durood. Hence, whoever wishes to increase his Durood should increase it, and whoever wishes to decrease his Durood should decrease it (i.e. if he wants to earn great rewards, then he should increase his Durood).”
