*********************************************************
'As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu'.

It is related from Abu Hurayra~(Allah be pleased with him )

that the Messenger of Allah
[may Allah bless him and grant him peace] said...

A man said, 'I must give some 'Sadaqa,' and went out with his 'Sadaqa',putting it in the hand of a Thief {!}

The next day people said he had given
'Sadaqa' to a Thief ... !

he said, 'O Allah, praise is Yours.
I will again give 'Sadaqa'.

he went out with his 'Sadaqa' and this time
put it in the hand of an Adulteress ... {!}

So, the next day people said that he had
given 'Sadaqa' in the night to an Adulteress !

he said ,' O Allah, praise is yours
I gave it to an adulteress, I will give more 'Sadaqa'.

he went out with his 'Sadaqa' and put it
in the hand of a Rich Man... !

Again, on the next day people said he had given
'Sadaqa' to a rich man !

he said...'O Allah, praise is Yours. I have given Sadaqa
to a Thief ,an Adulteress,and a Rich man.'!

Then someone came and said to him...

'Your 'Sadaqa' to a Thief might make him
abstain from stealing'!

'What you gave to the Adulteress might make her
abstain from fornication'.

'And what you gave to the rich man might
make him reflect so that he will
spend out from what Allah has given him'.

{'Subhan Allah'}
