DISAPPROVAL OF BEUYING THE DONATED

Umar b. Khattab (Allah be pleased with him) reported: I donated a pedigree horse in the path of Allah. Its possesser made it languish. I thought that he would sell it at a cheap price. I asked Allah's Menengsr (may peace be upon him) about it, whereupon he said: Don't buy it and do not get back your charity, for one who gets back the charity is like a dog who swallows its vomit. This hadith has been narrated on the authority of Malik b. Anas with the same chain of transmitters but with this addition:" Don't buy that even if he gives you for one dirham."

TREAT PRISONERS WITH KINDNESS

After a battle, the Prophet Muhammad SAWS noticed that one of the prisoners of war did not have proper clothing. He looked for a shirt for the prisoner and found that the shirt of one of his companions was appropriate. The Prophet then took off his own shirt and gave it to his companion as a replacement.
