عن أبي هُرَيْرَةَ رضي الله عنه أَنَّ رَجُلًا أتى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يَتَقَاضَاهُ فَأَغْلَظَ فَهَمَّ بِهِ أَصْحَابُهُ فقال رسول اللَّهِ  صلى الله عليه وسلم  َعُوهُ فإن لِصَاحِبِ الْحَقِّ مَقَالًا ثُمَّ قال أَعْطُوهُ سِنًّا مِثْلَ سِنِّهِ قالوا يا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ لا نجد إلا أَمْثَلَ من سِنِّهِ فقال أَعْطُوهُ فإن من خَيْرِكُمْ أَحْسَنَكُمْ قَضَاءً

Abu Hurayrah (rta) reported that a person came to the Prophet (sws) and demanded back [the camel] borrowed from him by the Prophet (sws)] and spoke harshly. At this, the companions were about to grab him when God’s Messenger (sws) said: “Let him be because he who has a right [on someone, also] has the right to express his demand.” The Prophet (sws) then told the companions: “Give him back a camel of the same age as the one [he had lent].” They replied: “We do not find a camel but one that is older to this.” The Prophet (sws) replied: “Give it to him because the best of you are those who return a debt in a befitting manner.”[1]
