{ يٰأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ لاَ تُبْطِلُواْ صَدَقَٰتِكُم بِٱلْمَنِّ وَٱلأَذَىٰ كَٱلَّذِي يُنْفِقُ مَالَهُ رِئَآءَ ٱلنَّاسِ وَلاَ يُؤْمِنُ بِٱللَّهِ وَٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلآخِرِ فَمَثَلُهُ كَمَثَلِ صَفْوَانٍ عَلَيْهِ تُرَابٌ فَأَصَابَهُ وَابِلٌ فَتَرَكَهُ صَلْداً لاَّ يَقْدِرُونَ عَلَىٰ شَيْءٍ مِّمَّا كَسَبُواْ وَٱللَّهُ لاَ يَهْدِي ٱلْقَوْمَ ٱلْكَافِرِينَ }

O you who believe annul not your voluntary almsgivings with reproach and injury as one who expends of his substance to show off to men and believes not in God and the Last Day. The likeness of him is as the likeness of a smooth rock on which is soil and a torrent smites it and leaves it barren. They have no power over anything that they have earned. God guides not the disbelieving folk. That is the beauty of the gift comes from the Real سبحانه. There is no gift from created beings that can be attributed to anyone other than Him. Indeed gifts that come from created beings are the greatest test miḥna while witnessing the gift from God is the greatest blessing niʿma. The one who spoke for them said: There is no humility in your honoring important people. On the contrary humility is that you honor the lowly. It is said that the poorest of creatures is the one who considers himself lucky [because of his wealth and life of comfort] for his bankruptcy will become clear to him. Likewise the least of creatures in value is the one who thinks that he has something for that with which he did not reckon will appear to him from God.
