عن أبي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ رضي الله عنه إِنَّ نَاسًا من الْأَنْصَارِ سَأَلُوا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَأَعْطَاهُمْ ثُمَّ سَأَلُوهُ فَأَعْطَاهُمْ حتى نَفِدَ ما عِنْدَهُ فقال ما يَكُونُ عِنْدِي من خَيْرٍ فَلَنْ أَدَّخِرَهُ عَنْكُمْ وَمَنْ يَسْتَعْفِفْ يُعِفَّهُ الله وَمَنْ يَسْتَغْنِ يُغْنِهِ الله وَمَنْ يَتَصَبَّرْ يُصَبِّرْهُ الله وما أُعْطِيَ أَحَدٌ عَطَاءً خَيْرًا وَأَوْسَعَ من الصَّبْرِ

Abu Sa‘id al-Khudri (rta) reported: “Some people from the Ansar asked [for charity] from God’s Messenger (sws). So, he gave it to them. They again asked and he again obliged until he was left with nothing. So, he said: ‘Whatever is with me of wealth I did not withhold from you. So, he who wants to become chaste, God will make him chaste; and he who showed contentment, God will grant him wealth and he who asks for patience from God, God will grant him patience and no person can be given a grant better and bigger than patience.”[1]
