Two Honest Men and the Arbitrator

Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him)said:

A person bought from another person a piece of land, and the person who had, bought that land found in it a pot which contained gold. The person who had bought the land said [to the seller of the land]: “Take your gold from me, for I bought only the land from you and not the gold!”

The man who had sold the land said: “I sold the land to you and whatever was in it.

They then referred the matter to a person. One who was made as a judge, and he said to them: “Do you have children?”
One of them said: “I have a boy,” and the other said: “I have a young daughter.”

He(the arbitrator) said: “Marry this young boy to the girl, and spend on them from [this gold] and also give (some) charity out of it.”
