278 - To secure for your fame, credit as well as blessings

To secure for your fame, credit as well as blessings, the help that you give to men in need, should possess the following attributes:

Whatever its extent, it should be considered by you as trifling so that it may be granted a high status; it should be given secretly, Allah will manifest it; and it must be given immediately so that it becomes pleasant.

Mola Ali (a.s) Ibn e Abu Talib (a.s)
Ref: Nahjul Balagha (Saying # 101)
