Hadith on Debt: Reward for one who eases someone’s debt

Buraydah ibn al-Aslami reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever grants respite to one in a difficult debt, he will have a reward of charity for each day. Whoever grants him respite after payment is due, he will have the like of it in charity for each day.
