Chapter No. 40, The Chapters on Ascetism (Zuhd)
Hadith No: 4120
Narrated/Authority of Sahl bin Sad As-Saidi
"A man passed by the Messenger of Allah (saw) and the Prophet (saw) said: What do you say about this man? They said: We agree with your opinion concerning him. We say: He is one of the noblest of people. If he proposes marriage, his proposal deserves to be accepted; and if he intercedes, his intercession deserves to be accepted; and if he speaks, he deserves to be listened to. The Prophet (saw) remained silent, and another man passed by. The Prophet (saw) said: What do you think about this man? We said: By Allah, O Messenger of Allah, this is one of the poor Muslims. If he proposes marriage, he does not deserve to get married; and if he intercedes, his intercession does not deserve to be accepted; and if he speaks, he does not deserve to be listened to. The Prophet (saw) said: This one is better than an earthful of (men like) the other man."
