Full talk: The Lure of Shaytan & the Promise of Allah
The philosophy of wealth in Islam can be divided into three categories. The Prophet ﷺ encouraged us to acquire wealth and earn a living. In fact in the Quran Allah also encourages the believers to go out and seek His bounties once they have completed the Friday prayer.
Muslims are advised not just to earn a living, but to also be wary of the wealth that they obtain. To allow that wealth to rest in their hands but not reside in their hearts. In order for this to happen the believers are advised to spend that wealth in charity. To share it with others and be rewarded in return.
Find out in this excerpt the philosophy of wealth in Islam and how it can be divided into three stages.
