How to become wealthy….


“Charity for God’s sake has a hundred signs within the heart—the good deed, a hundred tokens.

Though in charity riches are consumed, a hundred lives come to the earth in return.

A sowing of pure seeds in God’s earth, and then no income…impossible.”

— Mathnawi IV:1757-1759
