SPENDING IN THE CAUSE OF ALLAH

The Messenger of Allah, gave a speech in which he encouraged spending on the army of distress (for Tabuk).

Uthman bin Affan said, I will give one hundred camels with their saddles and supplies. Then the Prophet extorted them some more. Then Uthman, said I will give one hundred more camels with their saddles and supplies.

Then the Prophet, descended one step from the pulpit and extorted them some more. Then Uthman bin Affan said; I will give one hundred more camels with their saddles and supplies.

Then I saw the Messenger of Allah with his hand moving like this- – and Abdus Samad (one of the narrator’s) hand went out like one in amazement, he said, it does not matter what Uthman bin Affan does after.
