What is the effect of helping poor people in the hereafter?

In a letter to his eldest son Imam Hassan (AS), Imam Ali (AS) wrote: If you see a poor person who can carry your provision to Day of Judgment, and tomorrow when you need it, give it back to you, make the most of this opportunity of helping him/her, and (this way) place you provision on his/her shoulder. And if you have a good financial situation, give more and sent it with him/her, because one day in the hereafter, you may be looking for such a person, and may not find him/her [1].
