Narrated Abu Huraira:

A man came to Allah's Apostle and said, "I am ruined!" The Prophet ﷺ said to him, "What is the matter?" He said, "I have done a sexual relation with my wife (while fasting) in Ramadan." The Prophet ﷺ said to him?" "Can you afford to manumit a slave?" He said, "No." The Prophet ﷺ said, "Can you fast for two successive months?" He said, "No." The Prophet ﷺ said, "Can you feed sixty poor persons?" He said, "No." Then an Ansari man came with an Irq (a big basket full of dates). The Prophet ﷺ said (to the man), "Take this (basket) and give it in charity." That man said, "To poorer people than we, O Allah's Apostle? By Him Who has sent you with the Truth! There is no house in between the two mountains (of the city of Medina) poorer than we." So the Prophet ﷺ said (to him), "Go and feed it to your family."
