‏الزكاة (The Book of Obligatory Alms)
CHAPTER: EXCELLENCE OF SPENDING ON ONE'S FAMILY, AND SERVANT, AND SIN OF ONE WHO NEGLECTS OR WITHHOLDS THEIR SUBSISTENCE  

No. 2180

Thauban reported Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying: The most excellent dinar is one that a person spends on his family, and the dinar which he spends on his animal in Allaah's path, and the dinar he spends on his companions in Allaah's path. Abu Qilaba (one of the narrators) said: He (the narrator) started with family, and then Abu Qilaba said: Who is the person with greater reward than a person who spends on young members of his family (and thus) preserves (saves them from want) (and by virtue of which) Allaah brings profit for them and makes them rich.

No. 2181

Abu Huraira reported Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying: Of the dinar you spend as a contribution in Allaah's path, or to set free a slave, or as a sadaqa given to a needy, or to support your family, the one yielding the greatest reward is that which you spent on your family.

No. 2182

Khaithama reported: While we were sitting in the company of 'Abdullah b. 'Umar there came in his steward. He (Ibn 'Umar) said: Have you supplied the provision to the slaves? He said: No. Upon this he said: Go and give (the provision) to them, for the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) has said: This sin is enough for a man that he withholds the subsistence from one whose master he is.
