?Oh, believers, do not void your freewill offerings with reproach and injury as one who bestows of his substance to show off to men and believes not in God and the Last Day? (2:266).

?Whatever good you do surely God has knowledge of it. Those who expend their wealth night and day, openly or secretly , their reward awaits them with their Lord? (2:275).
