1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Hisham ibn Salim and abu Ayyub al-Khazzaz all from abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) who has said the following: “Once the poor people came to the Messenger of Allah and said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, the wealthy people have the means to set free slaves, we do not have it, they can go for Hajj, but we cannot, they can provide charity, but we cannot and they can join the defense army for Jihad, but we cannot do so.’ The Messenger of Allah said, ‘Whoever says al-Takbir of Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy. “ Allahu Akbar (Allah is greater than can be described),” one hundred times it will be better than setting free one hundred slaves.’ “Whoever says al-Tasbih of Allah, ‘Subhana Allah (all glory belongs to Allah),’ one hundred times it is better than deriving one hundred camels as a sacrificial offering. “Whoever says, ‘All praise belongs to Allah’ one hundred times, it is better than offering one hundred horses, harnessed and readied with a soldier riding to move for the cause of Allah. “Whoever says, ‘No one deserves to be worshipped except Allah,’ one hundred times will be the best among people in worshipping that day except for one who does more. “The Imam then said, ‘This reached the wealthy people and they followed the instruction. The poor people came to the Holy Prophet and said, “O Messenger of Allah, the wealthy people heard it and they did it.” The Messenger of Allah said, ‘That is an addition from Allah that He grants to whoever He wills.’”

4. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from ibn Mahbub from Malik ibn ‘Atiyyah from Durays al-Kunasi from abu Ja’far (a.s.) who has said the following: “The Messenger of Allah once was passing by a man who was planting a plant in his yard. The Holy Prophet stopped and asked, ‘Should I tell you about a plantation that has stronger roots, ripens faster and is of finer fruits?’ The man said, ‘Yes, O Messenger of Allah, tell me about it.’ The Messenger of Allah said, ‘In the morning and evenings say, “Glory belongs to Allah, all praise belongs to Allah, no one deserves to be worshipped except Allah and Allah is greater than can be described.” If you say this, for each time you will have ten trees in paradise of different kinds of fruits. They are (the reward) from perpetually charitable trusts.’ The Imam said that the man then said, ‘I take Allah as witness that my yard is a charitable trust and the needy Muslims are its beneficiaries.’ Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, then revealed the verses of the Holy Quran: ‘For those who spend for the cause of Allah, observe piety, (92:5) and believe in receiving rewards from Allah, (92:6) We shall facilitate the path to bliss’” (92:7)
