The Muhaddith, Alee bin Eesaa al-Wazeer (d. 334H) said:

I earned seven-hundred thousand (700,000) dinars (gold coins), and out of them I spent six-hundred and eighty thousand (680,000) in various (types) of righteousness (birr).

Note: Alee bin Eesaa was also very humble and modest, he said, "I never wore a thawb costing more than seven dinars." Spending wealth for the pleasure of Allaah is from taqwa. The amount spent by al-Wazeer according to today's value of gold equals £77 million GBP.

In al-Siyar of al-Dhahabee (15/300-301).
