An excerpt from the talk, ‘Capitalise on 5 before 5‘
Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on Friday 24th February 2017 at Al Kawthar Academy, Leicester (UK)
Full talk: Capitalise on 5 before 5
Allāh uses commercial language and examples throughout the Qurān to help us understand the profit gained as believers, as opposed to disbelievers, in the hereafter. The words tijārah (trade), bay’ (sale) and ribḥ (profit) are all explained in this excerpt in the context of the ḥadīth ‘capitalise on 5 before 5’.
Another ḥadīth brought explains the concept of ghabn (financial loss) and how many people are at a loss with regards to their good health and free time. We are so conscious of financial loss, of finding the best price and a good deal, that we will go out of our way to ensure we are not paying more than is necessary. Similarly, in light of the ḥadīth, we should also remain conscious of our time and good health to prevent unnecessary waste of them.
Find out in this excerpt the commercial language used by Allāh and His Rasūl ﷺ and how these examples are brought to give us a better understanding of our final outcome.
