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 prayer), AND HIS 'IZZAH (dignified greatness) LIES IN BEING NEEDLESS (and independent)FROM THE PEOPLE". [Al-Hakim,3289/Tabarani,4278].
Thus the more you stand before Allah, Most High, 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.
May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala grant us the ability to be among His Servants who offer the Voluntary Night Prayer(s) regularly.
