Narrated Sad (bin Abi Waqqas) (radiallaahu `anhu):
Allah's Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) distributed something (from the resources of Zakat) amongst a group of people while I was sitting amongst them, but he left a man whom I considered the best of the lot. So, I went up to Allah's Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and asked him secretly, "Why have you left that person? By Allah! I consider him a believer." The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, "Or merely a Muslim (Who surrender to Allah)." I remained quiet for a while but could not help repeating my question because of what I knew about him. I said, "O Allah's Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)! Why have you left that person? By Allah! I consider him a believer. " The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, "Or merely a Muslim." I remained quiet for a while but could not help repeating my question because of what I knew about him. I said, "O Allah's Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)! Why have you left that person? By Allah! I consider him a believer." The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, "Or merely a Muslim." Then Allah's Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, "I give to a person while another is dearer to me, for fear that he may be thrown in the Hell-fire on his face (by renegading from Islam)."

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 558:
Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, "No doubt, it is better for a person to take a rope and proceed in the morning to the mountains and cut the wood and then sell it, and eat from this income and give alms from it than to ask others for something."

Today's Hadith:

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 559:
Narrated Abu Humaid As-Sa'idi (radiallaahu `anhu):
We took part in the holy battle of Tabuk in the company of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and when we arrived at the Wadi-al-Qura, there was a woman in her garden. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) asked his companions to estimate the amount of the fruits in the garden, and Allah's Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) estimated it at ten Awsuq (One Wasaq = 60 Sa's, and 1 Sa'= 3 kg. approximately). The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said to that lady, "Check what your garden will yield." When we reached Tabuk, the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, "There will be a strong wind tonight and so no one should stand and whoever has a camel, should fasten it." So we fastened our camels. A strong wind blew at night and a man stood up and he was blown away to a mountain called Taiy. The King of Aila sent a white mule and a sheet for wearing to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) as a present, and wrote to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) that his people would stay in their place (and will pay Jizya taxation). When the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) reached Wadi-al-Qura he asked that woman how much her garden had yielded. She said, "Ten Awsuq," and that was what Allah's Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) had estimated. Then the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, "I want to reach Medina quickly, and whoever among you wants to accompany me, should hurry up." The sub-narrator Ibn Bakkar said something which meant: When the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) saw Medina he said, "This is Taabah." And when he saw the mountain of Uhud, he said, "This mountain loves us and we love it. Shall I tell you of the best amongst the Ansar?" They replied in the affirmative. He said, "The family of Bani-n-Najjar, and then the family of Bani Saa'ida or Bani Al-Harith bin Al-Khazraj. (The above-mentioned are the best) but there is goodness in all the families of Ansar."
Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)'s estimate regarding the woman's garden's yield was correct. So was his prediction about the wind at night. He had this special way of knowing the unknown: revelation. :)
Al-Mulhib (commentator) says that this Hadith shows that the leader should advise his followers about worldly matters as he does in religious matters. Also, gifts from non-Muslims can be accepted. [Sharh Ibn Battaal]
Another name for Madinah: Taabah. And, gotta love the Ansaar! Loving them is part of Imaan, did you know?
Madinah = Taabah <3
Mount Uhud: beloved. It's a special mountain, capable of loving. <3
