Narrated Abu Huraira The Prophet said,
“A man from Bani Israel asked someone from Bani Israel to give him a loan of one thousand Dinars and the later gave it to him. The debtor went on a voyage (when the time for the payment of the debt became due) but he did not find a boat, so he took a piece of wood and bored it and put 1000 diners in it and threw it into the sea. The creditor went out and took the piece of wood to his family to be used as fire−wood.” , “When he sawed the wood, he found his money.”
Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “No doubt, it is better for a person to take a rope and proceed in the morning to the mountains and cut the wood and then sell it, and eat from this income and give alms from it than to ask others for something.”
Narrated Hakim bin Hizam The Prophet said,
“The upper hand is better than the lower hand (i.e. he who gives in charity is better than him who takes it). One should start giving first to his dependents. And the best object of charity is that which is given by a wealthy person (from the money which is left after his expenses). And whoever abstains from asking others for some financial help, Allah will give him and save him from asking others, Allah will make him self−sufficient.”

If he is one of the people of Paradise; he is shown his place in it, and if he is from the people of the Hell−Fire; he is shown his place there−in. Then it is said to him, ‘This is your place till Allah resurrect you on the Day of Resurrection.”
