Sura 47
Aya 38
ها أَنتُم هٰؤُلاءِ تُدعَونَ لِتُنفِقوا في سَبيلِ اللَّهِ فَمِنكُم مَن يَبخَلُ ۖ وَمَن يَبخَل فَإِنَّما يَبخَلُ عَن نَفسِهِ ۚ وَاللَّهُ الغَنِيُّ وَأَنتُمُ الفُقَراءُ ۚ وَإِن تَتَوَلَّوا يَستَبدِل قَومًا غَيرَكُم ثُمَّ لا يَكونوا أَمثالَكُم

Hamid Aziz

Behold! You are those who are called upon to spend in Allah's way, but among you are those who are niggardly (or hoard), and whoever is niggardly is niggardly against his own soul; and Allah is the Rich (Self-sufficient) and you are the poor (having need of Him), and if you turn back He will bring in your place another people, and they will not be like you.
