The Herbalist pays back his debts by the blessing of the Prophet peace be upon him.

It was narrated that once upon a time, a herbalist was living in al-Karekh, a town near Baghdad. He owed a lot of people money but did not have enough to repay them. He did not know what to do; the lenders were asking for their money. So he closed his store and stayed home making du^a and asking Allah by the sake of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, to ease his hardships.

One night, as he was sleeping he saw Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, in his dream. The herbalist told the prophet about his situation and his sufferings. The Prophet told him to go to the Minister ^Aliyy ibn ^Isa, because he had ordered the minister to pay 400 dinars to the herbalist.

When morning came, the herbalist went happily to the minister, who was like the ruler of the town. At the minister's office, no one knew the herbalist. So the herbalist sat outside the place waiting, hoping someone would take him inside. After sitting there for a long time, he decided to leave.

Before leaving, the herbalist went to the minister's officer and said:" Tell the minister that I saw the Prophet, peace be upon him, in my dream and I would like to tell the minister about this dream." The officer excitedly replied, "You are the man of the dream?! The minister has sent people searching for you since morning."

The officer went inside and told the minister about the herbalist. The minister ordered the herbalist to be allowed into his office. When the minister saw the herbalist he asked him about his name, address and situation. After the herbalist finished telling him, the minister said, "I saw the Prophet, peace be upon him in my dream and he ordered me to give you 400 dinars. I woke up that morning not knowing who to ask about you. So I sent the guards searching for and asking about you."

Then the minister gave the herbalist 1000 dinars saying, "the prophet ordered me to give you 400 dinars and the rest are from me." The herbalist said:"No, by Allah I will not take more than what the prophet ordered. I hope that Allah will make the money blessed."

When the herbalist left the minister's office he went to find the lenders so that he could give back some of their money. His dept was 6000 dinars. The lenders said:" We will be patient with you for three years. Use the money to reopen your shop. Make things easy for you." The herbalist did not accept but to give them one third of their money. Therefore the herbalist paid 200 dinars and reopened his store with the 200 dinars that were left. Before the end of the year, the herbalist had made a profit of 1000 dinars and was able to repay the rest of his debts. All of this was due to the Prophet, peace be upon him.
