page The Benefits of Charity
Charity for God's sake has a hundred signs within the heart --
the good deed, a hundred tokens.
Though in charity riches are consumed,
a hundred lives come to the heart in return.
A sowing of pure seeds in God's earth, and then no income! Impossible.
-- Mathnawi [IV, 1757-1759]
