Sahih Muslim Book 030, Hadith Number 5730.

Chapter : It is very seldom that Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) said 'No" to anyone when asked to give anything, and he gave charity to the people very freely.

Ibn Shihab reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) went on the expedition of Victory, i.e. the Victory of Mecca, and then he went out along with the Muslims and they fought at Hunain, and Allah granted victory to his religion and to the Muslims, and Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) gave one hundred camels to Safwan b. Umayya. He again gave him one hundred camels, and then again gave him one hundred camels. Sa'id b. Musayyib said that Safwan told him: (By Allah) Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) gave me what he gave me (and my state of mind at that time was) that he was the most detested person amongst people in my eyes. But he continued giving to me until now he is the dearest of people to me.
