The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: "Whoever directs someone to a good, then he will have the reward equal to the doer of the action". [Saheeh Muslim]

Abu Hurayrah – may Allaah be pleased with him – once passed by the market in Medinah. He stopped at the market and said, “O people of the market, how incapable you are!”

They said, “And how is that Abu Hurayrah?”.

He replied, “Over there the inheritance of Allaah’s Messegner – Allaah’s peace and blessings be upon him – is being distributed and you are here! Won’t you go and take your share?”

“Where is it?” they asked.

He replied, “In the Masjid.”

So they hurried to the Masjid and Abu Hurayrah waited for them until they returned. When they came back, he said, “What’s the matter?”

They replied, “Abu Hurayrah! We went to the Masjid but we didn’t see anything being distributed.”

Abu Hurayrah asked them, “And you didn’t see anyone in the Masjid?”

They replied, “Indeed we did; we saw people praying, others reciting Qur`aan and others studying the regulations of halaal and haraam.”

So Abu Hurayrah said, “Woe to you! That is the inheritance of Muhammad – Allaah’s peace and blessings be upon him.”

Al-Haafidh Al-Mundhiree said in At-Targheeb wa At-Tarheeb, “Reported by Al-Tabaraani in Al-Awsat with a hasan chain of narrators.”

Also graded hasan by Shaykh Al-Albaanee. See his Saheeh At-Targheeb wa At-Tarheeb Vol. 1 p19.
