(3416) Regarding The Earnings Of A Teacher
Narrated Ubaydah ibn as-Samit: I taught some persons of the people of Suffah writing and the Quran. A man of them presented to me a bow. I said: It cannot be reckoned property; may I shoot with it in Allah's path? I must come to the Messenger of of Allah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم and ask him (about it). So I came to him and said: Messenger of Allah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم, one of those whom I have been teaching writing and the Quran has presented me a bow, and as it cannot be reckoned property, may I shoot with it in Allah's path? He said: If you want to have a necklace of fire on you, accept it.
