regarding the stray sheep he said: Take it (and keep it with you) till its seeker comes to it.

حَدَّثَنَا مُوسَى بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ، حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادٌ، ح وَحَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ الْعَلاَءِ، حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ إِدْرِيسَ، عَنِ ابْنِ إِسْحَاقَ، عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ شُعَيْبٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ جَدِّهِ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم بِهَذَا ‏.‏ قَالَ فِي ضَالَّةِ الشَّاءِ ‏

"‏ فَاجْمَعْهَا حَتَّى يَأْتِيَهَا بَاغِيهَا ‏"
