Volume 3, Book 46, Number 720:
Narrated Abu Musa (radiallaahu `anhu):
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “He who has a slave-girl and educates and treats her nicely and then manumits and marries her, will get a double reward.“
Another similar narration:
The Prophet SAWS (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There are three who will be given a double reward: a man from among the people of the Book who believed in his Prophet, then lived to see the Prophet (S) and followed him and believed in him– he will have a double reward; and a slave who fulfills his duty towards Allaah and towards his master – he will have a double reward; and a man who had a slave woman whom he fed and fed her well, and taught her and taught her well, then he set her free and married her – he will have a double reward”
Narrated by al-Bukhaari (97) and Muslim (154).
The act of educating a slave-girl and treating her nicely is rewarded.. and marrying her after freeing her gets the owner double reward.. because this is kind treatment multiplied by two.
P.S. a man cannot marry his slave because ownership is stronger than wedlock. Read more here.
Where are the people who will understand?
Who know that this world is like a castle made of Sand?
And with a single tide, it can all wash away
One moment it’s there, the next cast away
Where are the people who still value love?
Who realize all this is a blessing from above?
And those who don’t recommend over men
Their money and their cars, or how much they can spend
Where are the people who realize you’re sincere?
Who know that Allah has control of your affair?
And those who rely on HIM and HIM alone
Not depending on what’s apparent and what’s only shown
Where are the people who have insight?
Who are ready to take a leap from darkness to light?
And those who do deeds not be seen
Worried about hearts more than clothes to be clean
Where are the people who are your true friends?
Who are not afraid to walk with you against the false trends?
And those who, when you fall, will help you to rise
Hold your hand and walk with you on the path to Paradise
