We live in a very material and cynical world. Unfortunately, everything revolves around money, and all eventually converge to them. In the last decade there has been a significant increase in inflation. The prices of basic necessities of life are increasing ...
Media control people's minds and show a lot of useless very important so that people buy these things for the huge sums of money. The importance of wealth has increased more than ever in the life of mankind. Everyone is running after money, regardless of the ways in which they are earned.
It is not bad if you earn money, but as a Muslim, it is important to use the halal ways of making money and avoiding haraam. Save yourself from the haram in the modern world is very difficult but possible. Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his companions are the perfect example for us in this matter. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said that the halal method of making money is a responsibility. Another hadith states: “If a man has earned anything in halal way, it will be considered as an act of charity and mercy”.
All the prophets made their money godly ways. The messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) was engaged in trade and was famous for his honesty. The Prophet Zachary (peace be upon him) was a carpenter.
Islam regulates all aspects of the life of a Muslim, including money matters. It is defined in the Shariah about receiving and spending money. A Muslim is obliged to keep himself from abuse to fulfill the obligations as well as try to keep the priority in everything, including in money matters. This concerns both men and women.
Anyone who provides his family has to look for the permitted food. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “The rarest to the end of the world will be permitted food and friend (brother), whom you can trust”. Therefore, every day becomes more and more difficult in matters of permitted food, but it depends on our worship and effort on the path of the Almighty.
Many people who consider themselves Muslims, yet engaged in illicit work – for example, rent out their premises to open a pub, shops selling alcohol, cigarettes, and institutions, which extends debauchery, etc., explaining that, they say, do not do so themselves. These people forget that become mediators and partners of sin, and they will have to give account on judgment day for it, and so the money earned by this lease, are also forbidden. In addition to those who are involved in the forbidden craft, Allah prolongs the life that they see in their family dirty implications of this work.
It is also undesirable to make money on helping, as Muslims should help each other and do not charge a fee for it.
Even if, for example, at least a small part of the forbidden food gets into our bodies, so far it will be there, our worship and deeds are not accepted by Allah.
We have to keep ourselves away from the haram in making money. We must remember that only the righteous making money will bring us wealth, and most important treasure – the pleasure of Allah. This world and everything in it is not forever, we will never be able to take with us. However, our good works, including righteous earning money, will stay with us and will give us a favor in the future life. May Allah help us all righteous ways to make money and avoid haram.
