A man from Ansar wanted to ask Imam Hussain(AS) for financial help, but Imam Hussain(AS) said: O brother of Ansar, protect your face from the humility of seeking others help. You may write your need in a paper and I will respond to it pleasantly, God willing. The man wrote to the Imam (AS) that he owed a certain individual five hundred dinars and that man insisted on receiving his money soon. He also asked Imam Hussain(AS) to speak to persuade that man to grant him a respite until he becomes able to defray the sum. As Imam Hussain(AS) read the paper, he entered his house to take out a bale containing one thousand dinars. He handed them to the man and said: You may defray the debt and use the other five hundred dinars for settling your financial problems. "Do not say your need to anybody except three, a religious, a chivalrous, or a highborn individual. The religious will try to keep his religion pure, the chivalrous will be embarrassed by his chivalry, and the highborn will feel that you have not kept your face from asking for your need; therefore, he will protect your face against disappointing you."
