Abu Dawud Book 17, Hadith Number 3502.

Chapter : Not known.

Narated By ‘Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin : Makhlad ibn Khufaf al-Ghifari said: I and some people were partners in a slave. I employed him on some work in the absence of one of the partners. He got earnings for me. He disputed me and the case of his claim to his share in the earnings to a judge, who ordered me to return the earnings (i.e. his share) to him. I then came to Urwah ibn az-Zubayr, and related the matter to him. Urwah then came to him and narrated to him a tradition from the Apostle of Allah (PBUH) on the authority of ‘Aisha: Profit follows responsibility.
