Sahih Muslim | Book 5 | Hadith Number 2228
Narrated by Abu Haraira
Abu Haraira reported that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) gave similitude's of a miserly man and the giver of charity as two persons who have two coats- of-mail over them with their hands pressed closely to their breasts and their collar bones. Whenever the giver of charity gives charity it (the coat-of mail) expands so much as to cover his finger tips and obliterate his foot prints. And whenever the miserly person intends to give charity (the coat-of-mail) contracts and every ring grips the place where it is. He (Abu Huraira) said: I saw the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) saying with fingers in the opening of his shirt: "If you had seen him trying to expand it, it will not expand.
