What are the effects of reaching out to people when in need?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Sajjad (AS) who said: Reaching out to other people (extending hands in front of people) when in need will cause degradation and humility in life and in socializing with others; and this will also cause the destruction of modesty and diminishing dignity which actually is a kind of poverty in itself. But reducing requests from other people is actually freedom from want and a kind of ability for the person [1].
