👌🏽 The Importance Of Acquiring Wealth Only Through Halal Avenues ✅

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“A time will come when a person will not care how he gains his money, legally [through halal] or illegally [through haram].”
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2059)

📝 Explanation
The major cause for such a trait is greed & love for worldly wealth.
The further in time we go, the closer we get to this ⬆.
Therefore one needs increased vigilance coupled with consultation with ‘Ulama for guidance on one’s means of livelihood.
🤲🏼 May Allah Ta’ala grant us all pure, halal sustenance.

Selling defective goods without pointing out the defect ❗

Sayyiduna Wathilah ibnul Asqa’ (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Whoever sells defective goods without pointing it out [despite being required to], will remain subject to the wrath of Allah, and the angels will continue to curse him.”
(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 2247)

💡 Deceit and fraud are not traits of a Muslim.

Clarify the wage before work begins 👌🏽

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) is reported to have said:
‘Whoever employs an employee, should specify for him his wage [in advance].’

The most beloved place and the most hated place to Allah

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“The most beloved places to Allah are the Masjids, and the most hated places to Allah are the souks (market places).”
(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 671)
One reason for the market place being most detested by Allah, is the prevalence of abundant sin and vice therein.

💎 Moral
Besides those who are required to be at the markets for trade & for earning a livelihood, one should spend as less time as possible in the market places.
Only go per need.

⛔Merely going for a walk to the Mall, Souk etc [or just to pass time] is not encouraged.
❗Failure to adhere to this Prophetic teaching brings limitless harm & no good.

♨ Among the harms are:
1⃣ Wastage of wealth [by being tempted into purchasing what one has no genuine need for.
2⃣ Wastage of valuable time in ’the most hated place to Allah’!
3⃣ Casting forbidden gazes at [& intermingling with] the opposite gender, which has lasting ill effects.
4⃣ Involuntary listening to music that is played in the shops.
5⃣ Being exposed to violent crime.
6⃣ Exposing one’s children to all of the above ⬆, when they are taken along [or sent on their own for no genuine need to the mall]❗

🤲🏼 May Allah Ta’ala safeguard one and all.

The worst of places ❗

Sayyiduna Jubayr ibn Mut’im (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates:
A man came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and asked: “O Rasulullah! Which cities are the worst?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “I do not know.” Later when Jibril (‘alayhis salam) appeared, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) asked: “O Jibril! Which are the worst cities?” Jibril (‘alayhis salam) said: “I do not know, I have to ask my Rabb.” After some time, he returned, and said: “O Muhammad! Verily, you asked me: ‘Which are the worst cities?’ I had said that ‘I do not know.’ I have asked my Rabb, He says: “The souks (market places).”
(Musnad Ahmad, 4/81 & Mustadrak Hakim, 1/89,90.)

💡The previous broadcast had a Hadith close to this one.
There are other similar Hadiths on this topic too.
This illustrates the repeated warnings from Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) about the evils of the market place.

The Good💯& Bad♨of acquired wealth

Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said (as part of a lengthy Hadith):
“Wealth is an excellent achievement for the one who takes [his share of] wealth rightfully, [through halal means, and] by spending it in the path of Allah, and on the orphans, the needy and the travellers.

And he who doesn’t fulfill its right will be like [an animal] that eats but doesn’t get satisfied, and it [the wealth] will be a proof against him on the day of Qiyamah.”
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2842)

Moral
❗Not fulfilling the right of wealth applies at both stages;
1⃣acquiring it through Haram/dubious sources &
2⃣not spending in the avenues of good, like the ones cited in the Hadith.

❗Some people initially justify their ‘over acquisition’ of wealth with good intentions. However, after receiving the wealth [be-it through halal avenues] they fail to make good on those initial intentions.
That is what leads a person to being unsatisfied, & as the Hadith states: [he becomes like an animal] that eats but doesn’t get satisfied, and it [the wealth] will be a proof against him on the day of Qiyamah.”

💎On the other hand, there are many even in this day & age [of widespread greed], who have adopted the first part of this Hadith, & spend limitless in avenues of good, after earning from halal sources.

🤲🏼 May Allah Ta’ala increase their numbers.

A Hadith on giving charity from haram income❗

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Whoever acquires haram (unlawful) wealth and then gives charity from it, will not be rewarded and will be sinful.”
(Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 3367)

Morals
⛔Giving charity like the above does not legalise that Haram wealth in any way.
🛑 There is no ‘Robin Hoodism’ in Islam.

💎Allah is Pure and only accepts what is Pure.

The importance of settling debts or arranging for it to be settled before one passes away

Sayyiduna Abu Musa Al Ash’ari (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Among the greatest of sins in Allah’s sight committed, after the major sins which Allah has prohibited, is for a man to die while in debt, without making any [arrangement] for it to be paid off.”
(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 3335)

Lesson:
💎Taking loans for justified needs isn’t wrong.
However, not being sincere in settling the debt is a major wrong❗️
👌🏽One’s Intention should always be clean, as that draws Allah’s help in such matters.

A du’a for settling debts

Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu’anu) said that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) prescribed the following du’a for the settling of debts:

اَللّٰہُمَّ اكْفِنِىْ بِحَلَالِكَ عَنْ حَرَامِكَ وَ اَغْنِنِىْ بِفَضْلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ

‘Allahummak fini bi halalika ‘an haramika wa aghnini bi fadhlika ‘amman siwak.’

Translation: O Allah! Let the Halal things you provide suffice me from haram, and by Your Grace, keep me independent from all besides You.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3563. Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 1 pg. 538)
