Riyad as-Saliheen 253

Sahl bin Sa'd As-Sa'idi (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
A man passed by the Prophet ﷺ, so he asked a man who was sitting near him, "What is your opinion about this man?" That man replied: "He is one of the noblest men. By Allah he is certainly a proper person for (a girl) being given in marriage if he seeks to marry, and his recommendation is fit to be accepted if he recommends". Messenger of Allah ﷺ remained silent. Then another man passed. Messenger of Allah ﷺ enquired, "What is your opinion about this man?" He replied: "O Messenger of Allah, he is one of the poor Muslims. He is not a proper person (for a girl) to be given in marriage to, and his recommendation would not be accepted if he makes one; if he speaks, he is not to be listened to." Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, "He is better than the former by earthfuls".

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

وعن أبي العباس سهل بن سعد الساعدي رضي الله عنه قال: مر رجل على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم، فقال لرجل عنده جالس: "ما رأيك في هذا؟" فقال: رجل من أشراف الناس، هذا والله حري إن خطب أن ينكح، وإن شفع أن يشفع . فسكت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم، ثم مر رجل آخر، فقال له رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: " ما رأيك في هذا؟" فقال: يا رسول الله هذا رجل من فقراء المسلمين هذا حري إن خطب أن لا ينكح، وإن شفع أن لا يشفع، وإن قال أن لا يسمع لقوله. فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: “هذا خير من ملء الأرض مثل هذا" ((متفق عليه)) . (22)
