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 ﷺ، 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 ﷺ، ثم مر رجل آخر، فقال له رسول الله ﷺ: " 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 ﷺ: “هذا خير من ملء الأرض مثل هذا" ((متفق عليه)) .
