Ismail b. Ibrahim father reported his grandfather saying: The Holy Prophet (Sall Allah-o-alaihe wa sallam) borrowed forty thousand (dirhams) from me. The revenue came in to him and he paid it to me saying: May Allah bless your family and your property. Verily, the only reward for a loan is the thanks giving and the repayment.
