Strange bargaining ....

In the early era of the IsLam Jareer ibn Abdullah once sent his servant for buying a horse.

The servant made a deal for three hundred dirhams and brought the seller with him so he could be paid.

Jareer ibn Abdullah looked at the horse and realized that the seller had undervalued it.

and said to the seller
Your horse is worth more than three hundred dirhams. Will you sell it for four hundred dirhams?
of course The seller agreed.
Your horse is worth more than four hundred dirhams. Will you sell it for five hundred dirhams?
naturally The seller agreed.

he continued his unusual "bargaining" and finally bought the horse for eight hundred dirhams.

He was later asked why he did so. he explained.
The seller was not aware of the true value of this horse, and

I gave my oath of allegiance (bay’ah) to the Messenger of Allah Mahammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)
that I would be sincere towards every Muslim.

This illustration, in principle and in honor, is precious. Have always lived my life this way, even as a boy.
Truly, one may tell more about a person by what they take than by what they give.

May that sincerity and honor and decency expand to all people, all tribes, of the two-leggeds... even when it's hard to. God knows what we reveal and what we conceal. We all ultimately return to God.

The believer is the believer's mirror,
and the believer is the believer's brother who guards him against loss
and protects him when he is absent.
