Charity does not in any way decrease the wealth and the servant who forgives – Allah adds to his respect, and the one who shows humility – Allah elevates him in the estimation (of the people).

Being mindful of Allah and fearing Him (taqwa)
And whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty).
And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. And whosoever puts his trust in Allah, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allah will accomplish his purpose. Indeed Allah has set a measure for all things.
– Surah at-Talaq 65:2-3
Performing Hajj and ‘Umrah often, following one with the other
Abdullah (bin Mas’ud) narrated that the Messenger of Allah said (ﷺ):
Alternate between Hajj and Umrah; for those two remove poverty and sins just as the bellows removes filth from iron, gold, and silver – and there is no reward for Al-Hajj Al-Mabrur except for Paradise.”
– Jami` at-Tirmidhi 810
It was narrated from Umm Salamah that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) used to say, when he said the salaam at the end of Fajr prayer:
“Allaahumma inni as’aluka rizqan tayyiban, wa ‘ilman naafi’an, wa ‘amalan mutaqabbalan
O Allah, I ask you for good (halaal) provision, beneficial knowledge and accepted good deeds.”
– Sunan Ibn Majah 925
