On the authority of Anas (may Allaah be pleased with him), who said that the prices in the marketplace became very high once, so the people said, “O messenger of Allaah! Set the prices for us!” He (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) replied:
“Verily, Allaah is the One who regulates the prices the One who seizes, al-Baasit, the Ever-Providing!”
Saheeh Sunanut-Tirmithee (1314)
