Once Abdullah Bin Jafar (radiAllahu anhu) was passing through a forest when he went by an orchard where an Abyssinian slave was working.
Someone brought him his food and, at the same time, a stray dog came into the garden, and stood by the slave, who threw a loaf of bread to the dog, which ate it but did not go away.
The slave-boy threw it a second loaf and a third one, thus letting it eat the whole of his daily provision of food, keeping nothing back for himself.
Abdullah bin Jafar, who had been watching this, said to the boy, “How much bread do you get as your daily ration of food?”
The boy said, “I get three loaves everyday, as you have just seen.”
Once long ago, a young man named Salman came to perform Hajj. He was poor and had no money for food. So he stayed at Makkah spending much of his time in the Haram. During the day, he worked to earn his bread which he ate with ZamZam water.
One day while in the masjid al-Haram, he saw something glittering under the sun in the distance. “What could that be?,” thought Salman.
As he came closer, he found that someone had dropped their purse. When he opened it, he found an expensive necklace along with plenty of money.
“I could buy a lot of nice things with all this money,” Salman thought. “I could buy a good house and good food with that money”. But his piety spoke to him: “It is haram - it’s not your property”.
Meanwhile, the owner of the purse came searching for it. Salman saw the owner asking people if they had seen their purse. “I’m a thief,” thought Salman, “I have the purse”.
But Shaitan whispered to him, “Don’t be a fool. You need this money badly”. But Salman remembered the du’a to say to make Shaitan go away from him;
I ask Allah to protect me from the rejected Shaitan.
