Pearl of Wisdom

'The Prophet (SAWA) employed a man from the tribe of Bani Asad who was called Ibn al-Utbiyya to go and collect some charity and when he came back, he said, 'This is for you, and this is my gift [assuming possession of some of the donation for himself].' So the Prophet (SAWA) ascended the pulpit. He praised Allah and extolled Him, and said, 'What is it with the administrator who we send [to work] and he comes back and says, 'This is for you and this is for me!' He should sit in the house of his mother and father and see if he is given a gift or not?! By He who owns my soul, anything that he takes he will be carrying on his neck on the Day of Resurrection, even if it is a grumbling camel, a bellowing cow, or a moaning sheep.'
