Explanation of a Hadith on Charity

Question

How do we reconcile between the following two narrations?

1. If the wife or treasurer spends from the owner’s wealth then both will get equal/full reward [… min ghayri ay yunqasa min ujurihim shayan.]

(Sahih Muslim)

and

2. The Hadith in Sahih Muslim as well, where it appears both will share the reward half half in the case where the slave gives sadaqah from his master’s wealth. [... wal ajru bainakuma nisfan.]

The position of the Turban tail

Question

 .وَعَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ حُرَيْثٍ: أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ – صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ – خَطَبَ وَعَلَيْهِ عِمَامَةٌ سَوْدَاءُ، قَدْ أَرْخَى طَرَفَيْهَا بَيْنَ كَتِفَيْهِ يَوْمَ الْجُمُعَةِ

In this Hadith I would like to know whether the two ends of the turban were at the front between the two shoulders or at the back between the two shoulders? Or could it have both possibilities?

Treating people according to their status

Question

Sayyiduna Maymun ibn Abi Shabib (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported:

A beggar asked ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) 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: “The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) instructed us: ‘Treat people according to their status.”

Some people are claiming that this teaches us to treat people differently and not as equal. Can you please provide an explanation to expel the misconceptions?
