Malik related to me from Yahya ibn Said from Sulayman ibn Yasar that Thabit ibn ad-Dahhak al-Ansari told him that he had found a camel at Harra, so he hobbled it and mentioned it to Umar ibn al-Khattab and Umar ordered him to make it known three times. Thabit said to him, "That would distract me from the running of my estate." Umar said to him, "Then let it go where you found it."
وَحَدَّثَنِي مَالِكٌ، عَنْ يَحْيَى بْنِ سَعِيدٍ، عَنْ سُلَيْمَانَ بْنِ يَسَارٍ، أَنَّ ثَابِتَ بْنَ الضَّحَّاكِ الأَنْصَارِيَّ، أَخْبَرَهُ ‏.‏ أَنَّهُ، وَجَدَ بَعِيرًا بِالْحَرَّةِ فَعَقَلَهُ ثُمَّ ذَكَرَهُ لِعُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ فَأَمَرَهُ عُمَرُ أَنْ يُعَرِّفَهُ ثَلاَثَ مَرَّاتٍ فَقَالَ لَهُ ثَابِتٌ إِنَّهُ قَدْ شَغَلَنِي عَنْ ضَيْعَتِي ‏.‏ فَقَالَ لَهُ عُمَرُ أَرْسِلْهُ حَيْثُ وَجَدْتَهُ ‏.‏
