When Uwais el-Qami was offered gold

Uwais el-Qami

 

Uwais el-Qami was offered some gold. He said:

‘I do not need it, as I already have a coin.’

The other said: ‘How long will that last you?—it is nothing.’

Uwais answered: ‘Guarantee me that I shall live longer than this sum will suffice me, and I will accept your gift.’
