From: Sahih Bukhari
Chapter No. 44, Lost Things Picked up by Someone (Luqaata)
Hadith No: 618
Narrated/Authority of Zaid bin Khalid
A man came and asked Allah's Apostle (SAW) about picking a lost thing. The Prophet (SAW) said, "Remember the description of its container and the string it is tied with, and make public announcement about it for one year. If the owner shows up, give it to him; otherwise, do whatever you like with it." He then asked, "What about a lost sheep?" The Prophet (SAW) said, "It is for you, for your brother (i.e. its owner), or for the wolf." He further asked, "What about a lost camel?" The Prophet (SAW) said, "It is none of your concern. It has its water-container (reservoir) and its feet, and it will reach water and drink it and eat the trees till its owner finds it."
