Riyad as-Saliheen 215

'Adi bin 'Umairah (May Allah bepleased with him) reported:
Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, "Whosoever among you is appointed by us to a position and he conceals from us even a needle or less, it will amount to misappropriation and he will be called upon to restore it on the Day of Resurrection". ('Adi bin 'Umairah added:) A black man from the Ansar stood up - I can see him still - and said: "O Messenger of Allah, take back from me your assignment." He (the Prophet ﷺ) said, "What has happened to you?" The man replied: "I have heard you saying such and such." He ﷺ said, "I say that even now: Whosoever from you is appointed by us to a position, he should render an account of everything, big or small, and whatever he is given therefrom, he should take and he should desist from taking what is unlawful".


وعن عدي ابن عميرة رضي الله عنه قال: سمعت رسول الله ﷺ يقول: “من استعملناه منكم على عمل، فكتمنا مخيطًا فما فوقه، كان غلولاً يأتي به يوم القيامة” فقام إليه رجل أسود من الأنصار، كأني أنظر إليه ، فقال: يا رسول الله اقبل عني عملك، قال: “ومالك؟” قال سمعتك تقول كذا وكذا، قال: “وأنا أقوله الآن: من استعملناه على عمل فليجئ بقليله وكثيره، فما أوتي منه أخذ، وما نهي عنه انتهى، ((رواه مسلم)).
