 Salaam everyone,
  Jabir Ibn Abdullah, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said (relating what Jibreel, peace be upon him, said when he came to him):-

        "...AND KNOW THAT SHARAF (Honour and Nobility) OF THE BELIEVER LIES IN HIS
            QIYAMUL LAYL (Standing in Tahajjud), AND HIS 'IZZAH (Dignified Greatness) LIES
            IN BEING NEEDLESS (and independent) FROM THE PEOPLE".  [Al-Hakim, 3289/Tabrani, 4278].

 The more you stand before Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, in the silent depths of the nights- seeking His help and relying upon Him alone- the more we feel content and certain of being granted provision; the less we rely on people around us or worry about what they possess. Note this well..
