Repaying in Full.. or More (Ahadith 1997 – 1998)

Bismillah.

Volume 3, Book 38, Number 501 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) owed somebody a camel of a certain age. When he came to demand it back, the Prophet said (to some people), “Give him (his due).” When the people searched for a camel of that age, they found none, but found a camel one year older. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Give (it to) him.” On that, the man remarked, “You have given me my right in full. May Allah give you in full.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “The best amongst you is the one who pays the rights of others generously.”

Volume 3, Book 38, Number 502 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
A man came to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) demanding his debts and behaved rudely. The companions of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) intended to harm him, but Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said (to them), “Leave him, for the creditor (i.e. owner of a right) has the right to speak.” Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) then said, “Give him a camel of the same age as that of his.” The people said, “O Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)! There is only a camel that is older than his.” Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Give (it to) him, for the best amongst you is he who pays the rights of others handsomely.”

It’s not just about debts. It’s about others’ rights in general. Try doing more for them than however much you owe them. This is Ihsaan, and Allah loves those who do Ishaan (2:195).
