Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from ibn Mahbub from Zayd al-Shahham who has said the following: “I heard abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) saying, ‘One who helps his brother (in belief) who is grieved and exhausted in his suffering, relieves him of his hardships and helps him to meet his needs, Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, writes for this seventy-two blessings from Allah of which one is an immediate facilitation of his financial affairs and preserves the other seventy-one blessings for his life in the hereafter to help him in the disastrous and frightening conditions of the Day of Judgment.’”

One is for the worldly life and the other seventy-two in times of great grief and hardship (Day of Judgment), when people will be preoccupied with the problems of their own souls.’”

You must benefit from the good advice and be interested in good deeds.’”
