The Mother of the believers, 'Aisyah (may Allah be pleased with her) narrated that once they slaughtered a sheep when the Prophet (S.A.W) asked her
"What has remained of it (after giving charity)?"
She replied "Nothing has remained except its shoulder." Thereupon, the Messenger of Allah (S.A.W) said:
"All of it has remained except its shoulder (meaning that what is given in charity will remain for them in the Hereafter)."
"charity does not in any way decrease one's wealth, the servant who forgives, Allah adds to his respect, and the one who shows humility Allah elevates him in the estimation (of the people)"
