Hadith ~ Returns the rights of others

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

It was related that Abu Huraira (May Allah be satisfied with him) said: “A man came to the Prophet (SAWS) demanding his debts in a rude manner. The companions of the Prophet (SAWS) wanted to deal with him severely but the Messenger of Allah said: ‘Leave him alone, the creditor has a right to speak.’ Then the Messenger of Allah (SAWS) said: ‘Give him a camel of the same age as the one he had.’ The people said: ‘O Messenger of Allah! The only camel we have is older than his.’ The Messenger of Allah said: ‘Give it to him, the best of you is the one who returns the rights of others in a better way’.” (Bukhari)
