الإمام الكاظم (عليه السَّلام):
مَن طَلَبَ هذا الرِّزقَ مِن ‏حِلِّهِ لِيَعودَ بهِ عَلى نفسِهِ و عِيالِهِ كانَ كَالمُجاهِدِ في سبيلِ اللّهِ عزّ وجلّ، فإن غَلَبَ علَيهِ فَلْيَستَدِنْ عَلَى اللّهِ و عَلى رسولِهِ (صلی‌الله‌علیه‌وآله‌وسلم) ما يَقوتُ بهِ عِيالَهُ.
Imam al-Kaẓim (as):
One who seeks to gain sustenance for himself and his family in a lawful manner is as the one who fights in the way of Allah. But if he is unable to do so he may incur debt, trusting in Allah and His Prophet, in order to ensure provisions for his family.

Fundamental Beliefs » Human and God » Divine Proximity » When Allah wants Good for a servant
حضرت محمد (صلی الله علیه و آله):
إذا أرادَ اللّهُ بأهلِ بَيْتٍ خَيراً فَقّهَهُم‏ في الدِّينِ، وَ وَقَّرَ صَغيرُهُم كبيرَهُم، وَ رزَقَهُمُ الرِّفقَ في مَعيشَتِهِم، وَ القَصْدَ في نَفَقاتِهِم، وَ بَصّرَهُم عُيوبَهُم فيَتُوبوا مِنها، وَ إذا أرادَ بِهم غيرَ ذلكَ تَرَكهُم هَمَلًا.
The Prophet Muhammad (S):
When Allah wants good for a household, He makes them proficient in the knowledge of religion, He causes the younger ones from among them to revere the elders, He bestows them with moderation in their livelihood and with economy in their spending, He gives them insight into their faults, thus causing them to repent, and when He wants other than that [i.e. good for them] then He leaves them unattended.

حضرت محمد (صلی الله علیه و آله):
مَن دَخَلَ السُّوقَ فاشتَرى تُحْفةً فَحَمَلَها إلى عِيالِهِ كانَ كَحامِلِ صَدَقَةٍ إلى قَومٍ مَحاوِيجَ، ولْيَبدَأْ بِالْاءناثِ قَبلَ الذُّكُورِ.
The Prophet Muhammad (S):
One who goes to the bazaar to buy a present for his family is like one who has given some charity to needy people. One must put a higher priority on giving gifts to his daughters over his sons.
