"There is one who gives generously yet ends with more", (Proverbs 11:24) which sages applied to the mitzvah of charity. (Yalkut Shimoni ad loc) Indeed, we will also relate [this verse] to the same subject, for yesod is called the "righteous one", inasmuch as it gives "charity" [tzedaka] to Nukva, who is a priori termed "righteousness" [tzedek], but thereby becomes "charity" [tzedaka].

"There is one who gives generously yet ends with more"

"Then as for him who gives away and guards (against evil), and accepts the best, We will facilitate for him the easy end." Suratul Lail

The Noble Prophet Muhammad (saw) said: "Nothing shall ensure the welfare (and interests) of your religion except generosity and good disposition."

The Noble Prophet Muhammad (saw) said: "The most generous is he who fulfills that which Allah (SWT) has deemed obligatory upon him."

Jabir ibne Abdullah Ansari narrated the Noble Prophet Muhammad (saw) never disappointed anyone who asked for his help.

It's silence when your words would hurt;
It's patience wen your neighbour's curt;
it's deafness when a scandal flows;
it's thoughtfullness for other's woes;
