Maimun bin Abu Shabib (May Allah had mercy upon him) reported:

A begger asked 'Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) for charity and she gave him a piece of bread. Thereafter, one well-dressed person asked her for charity and she invited him to sit down and served him food. When she was asked about the reason for the difference in treatment, she said: "Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) instructed us: 'Treat people according to their status".[Abu Dawud].

وعن ميمون بن أبي شبيب رحمه الله أن عائشة رضي الله عنه الإمام مر بها سائل، فأعطته كسرة، ومر بها رجل عليه ثياب وهيئة، فأقعدته، فأكل فقيل لها في ذلك‏:‏ ‏؟‏ فقالت‏:‏ قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ ‏

"‏أنزلوا الناس منازلهم‏"

‏ ‏(‏‏(‏رواه أبو داود‏)‏‏)‏‏.‏ لكن قال ميمون لم يدرك عائشة‏.‏
