Giving sadaqah with one’s own hands

Question

Is this a reliable incident?

At some point in his life, Sayyiduna Harithah ibn Nu’man (radiyallahu ‘anhu) lost his sight. After losing his sight, he placed a basket filled with dates and other similar items near his musallah and also had a string tied between his musallah and the door of his home.

When any beggar would knock on the door of Harithah (radiyallahu ‘anhu), he would take some dates from the basket and then use the string to find his way to the door of his home where the beggar awaited him. [In this manner, he would ensure that he personally gave the beggar something from his own hand]

When his family would see him [undertaking so much of difficulty to give the sadaqah to the beggar], they would pity him and say, “We will give the charity to the beggar on your behalf!” However, he would say, “I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) mention, ‘Giving something to a beggar [with your own hand] will prevent an evil death’.”

A follow up query on the narration regarding ‘A du’a to recite when hearing a sneeze’

Question

With regard to this post on what to recite when hearing a sneeze:

I have come across a similar narration in Al Hisnul Hasin, which doesn’t have the word ‘سمعها’ [i.e. The Hadith would then mean a person should recite this du’a when sneezing and not when hearing a sneeze]. Is this narration correct?

Will the Hadith then have two possible meanings, i.e. A person should recite this when he sneezes or hears a sneeze?
