Acceptance of a Thing Which is Bestowed without Asking for It

Salim Bin Abdullah Bin Umar (RAA) relates from his father Abdullah Bin Umar and Abdullah from his father Umar (RAA) that the Holy Prophet (SAW) used bestow upon me some presents, and I would then submit: "Sir, give it to someone who is more needy than myself." The Holy Prophet (SAW) would say: Take it when it comes to you from this account and without your asking or aspiring for and include it into your assets. Thereafter you may use it or give it away in charity. Do not aspire to acquire something through other means. Salim says that his father Abdullah Bin Umar would not ask anyone for anything nor refuse anything that was given to him. (Bukhari and Muslim)
