Pearl of Wisdom

Verily he who is most persevering in the face of adversity is the most abstemious from among you.' Marry off those who are single among you and the upright ones from among your male slaves and your female slaves. If they are poor, Allah will enrich them out of His grace, and Allah is all-bounteous, allknowing: And of His signs is that he created for you mates from your own selves that you may take comfort in them, and He ordained a.ffection and mercy between you. There are indeed signs in that for a people who reflect.'

Imam Musa ibn Jafar al-Kadhim [as]
Qur'an 30:21

Sermon 141 Against misplaced generosity

He who shows generosity to those who have no claim to it or who are not fit for it would not earn anything except the praise of the ignoble and appreciation of bad persons, although as long s he continues giving, the ignorant will say how generous his hand is, even though in the affairs of Allah he is a miser.

Therefore, to whosoever Allah gives wealth he should use it in extending good behaviour to his kinsmen, in entertaining, in releasing prisoners and the afflicted; in giving to the poor and to debtors, and he should endure (the troubles arising out of) the fulfilment of rights (of others) and hardships in expectation of reward. Certainly, the achievement of these qualities is the height of greatness in this world and achievement of the distinctions of the next world; if Allah so wills.
