““No one gives Sadaqah from that which is good – and Allah only accepts that which is good – except that Ar Rahmaan (the most beneficent) takes it with his right hand, even if it is a date. It is then nurtured in the hand of Ar Rahmaan until it becomes greater than a mountain. Just as one of you would nurture his colt or his young (weaned) Camel“

(Agreed upon by Bukhaari (1344) and Muslim (1014))”
