عن أبي مسعود -رضي الله عنه- قال: جاء رجل إلى النبي -صلى الله عليه وسلم- بناقة مَخْطُومَةٍ، فقال: هذه في سبيل الله، فقال رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم-: «لك بها يوم القيامة سبعمائة ناقة كلها مَخْطُومَةٍ».
[صحيح.] - [رواه مسلم.]

Abu Mas‘ūd (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: A man brought a haltered she-camel to the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) and said: "This is for the sake of Allah." The Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: "You will have seven hundred she-camels in return on the Day of Judgment, all of which haltered."
[Sahih/Authentic] - [Muslim]

Explanation

This narration encourages spending in the cause of Allah, especially in matters which contribute to the war effort such as horses, she-camels, or the like. Allah multiplies the reward for such spending seven hundred times. In the Qur'an, He says {The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.} [Surat al-Baqarah: 261] When an animal is haltered, this gives its owner greater control of it, which is something good. So, the man is rewarded with similarly haltered she-camels.
