Fruits of Charity

It is related that a woman often gave bread in charity to roadside beggars. She once set off on a journey to see her husband on a nearby field with her child.

As she passed by a meadow, a beast pounced on them. It swallowed the child and left the woman wounded. She cried out to her Lord in anguish and all of a sudden a hand appeared which hit the beast. The beast succumbed to this and choked out the child. A voice called out, “Take your child, You have been repaid a morsel for a morsel.”
