Avoid disrespecting a believer

SHAFAQNA – Abu Baseer narrated: I asked Imam Baqer (AS): A friend of mine is poor and I want to give him my Zakat but he is ashamed to receive Zakat (from anyone). Is it necessary to inform him that this Zakat is from my wealth? Imam Baqer (AS) replied: You carry out the duties God has made Wajeb for you but do not disrespect a believer [1].
