Why the needy must be helped?

SHAFAQNA – A person asked Imam Hussain (AS): Why you never return a needy person disappointed, even when you are riding a camel? Imam Hussain (AS) replied: I am also needy and like God to help me. That is why I am ashamed to disappoint the needy whilst I am in need myself. It is God’s grace to grant me Divine Blessings and it is my habit to give those blessings to God’s servants. I am fearful that if I give up this habit of mine, God’s way of granting blessings may also change [1].
