Sura 36
Aya 47
وَإِذا قيلَ لَهُم أَنفِقوا مِمّا رَزَقَكُمُ اللَّهُ قالَ الَّذينَ كَفَروا لِلَّذينَ آمَنوا أَنُطعِمُ مَن لَو يَشاءُ اللَّهُ أَطعَمَهُ إِن أَنتُم إِلّا في ضَلالٍ مُبينٍ

Bijan Moeinian

When they are asked to devote a part of what God has given them to the needy ones, they say: “If God wanted, He would have helped the needy ones Himself!” What a wrong attitude [God has made some poor and some rich to see whether or not the rich ones are human enough to help the poor.]
