Know that we are living in Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Your brothers and sisters, welcome back to our program, Islam quest. And we are discussing about the top 10 ways to increase our wealth. We have mentioned increasing involved is only possible and is only meaningful is only fruitful, when we act according to the principles of set by Allah subhanho wa Taala.
We have mentioned five ways to increase the wealth.
The sixth way
to increase our wealth My dear brothers and sisters is to do halaal business, doing halaal business helps us to increase our wealth. Number one, by doing halaal business you would be following and obeying the commands of Allah subhanaw taala meaning that you are not getting engaged into any thing which is based on Riba based on interest usually based on anything which is haram based on any element, product or activity which is haram. When you are in the business which is halal, which is according to the teachings of the Quran and the teachings of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, Allah subhanho wa Taala will increase in your wealth. Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in Surah
Baqarah surah number two to 74 to 276.
That Allah subhanaw taala has permitted you the business
Allah subhanaw taala himself has permitted you business and business is not rubber business is not usually Allah subhanaw taala profits and benefits in business and Riba will spoil you, it will invite the curse of Allah subhanaw taala and it will invite my dear brothers and sisters Riba usually it invites you to do war against Allah and His messenger.
Can you imagine that? It's absolutely serious.
Can we ever think or be afford to think that we may wage a war against Allah and His messenger?
Are we capable enough to do so?
Allah subhanho wa Taala says those who get involved and engaged in usually in Riba in interest, let them be prepared to take a war against Allah and His messenger.
So Riba interest usually is the worst of x, never get into it, for you will think that you are gaining, but in reality, that's a credit crunch. That's the economy clash. It's a collapse altogether.
That's a credit crunch, my brothers and sisters, Allah subhanaw taala will give Baraka and he will increase you
in wealth. If you do halaal business. If you get involved into halaal business, Allah will help you to increase in your wealth.
The seventh way to increase your wealth my brothers and sisters, is pray. Allah subhanaw taala has taught us this beautiful
mentioned in the Quran. In surah baqarah Allah subhanaw taala taught us robina Oh our Lord, our Tina gave us fifth dunya in this dunya in this world,
Santa God waffle, Hirata has an inner azova not and give us God in the hereafter as well and save us protect us from the punishment of the hereafter. Allah subhanaw taala has given us this drug so that we may ask people think that even if they only struggle and struggle and struggle, they will get the wealth. That's the wrong ideology. Conceptually, our mindset should be that we must ask a lot and we strive. This should be our conceptually driven formula to increase our wealth that we must we must ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant. So even so even if we
work alone, or work in a group, we need to ask Allah Subhana Allah to help us to provide us
To grant us good in this dunya for this is the beautiful duar mentioned in the Quran itself. The way my brothers and sisters, to increase your wealth, to increase in your wealth is you must.
You must act.
You must act my brothers and sisters, you must strive. It shouldn't be that you just make duar and certain homes. No, it doesn't work like this. Neither the other way around. You just work and don't make dua or you just make dua and don't work both these things on the extremes and both of them are wrong. You need to make dua and you strive and you need to strive and then make dua. That is how you increase in your wealth. Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. He said, a very beautiful statement. trust in Allah, but tie your camel, when you trust in Allah subhanaw taala that means you have to make preparation from your own side. Allah subhanaw taala does not change the people who does not
change themselves. You need to begin and initiate that struggle. You need to strive to gain the fruits,
the worldly things that Allah subhanahu wa tada has provided you, you need to strive and that is what is mentioned in Surah. Two Juma surah number 62. That after you finish your prayer,
after you finish your prayer, you need to go and see the sustenance given by Allah subhana wa Tada. So you need to strive you need to struggle in order to increase your wealth. And that is really very important. You just can't sit back at rest. you need you need to make an effort. You need to struggle My dear brothers and sisters and that's how you increase in your wealth.
Another thing that increases your wealth my brothers and sisters is acting upon the commands of Allah subhanaw taala. acting upon the commands of Allah subhanaw taala helps you to increase in your wealth. If you are obedient slave of Allah, why will alone not give you Allah will give you the world and will give you the Baraka in your world, provided you should be obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala you should be
obedient and sincere to Allah subhanaw taala and your sincerity demands that you obey, that you obey to the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that's how that's how it reflects your sincerity. When you obey the commands of Allah, it reflects that you are actually sincere to Allah subhanaw taala your obedience is the proof that you are true to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So acting upon the commands of Allah subhanaw taala increases your worth. And that's the ninth point. The last point that's the 10th point my brothers and sisters, the 10th way to increase your wealth
is tangkula thank Allah subhanaw taala for whatever he has given you, take a loss of $100 for thankfulness will increase in your wealth. Allah subhanho wa Taala he loves his slave who is grateful to him.
We the People, humanity are ungrateful indeed. We do not thank Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And by the way, in even if we are not thankful, even if we are not grateful, even if we don't glorify Allah subhanaw taala it would never decrease
the status of Allah subhanho wa Taala it would never affect an impact on Allah subhanaw taala but it affects it effects on us. If we thank Allah, we show that we are grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala we show our gratitude for the famous that he has done on us every single day. Allah subhanaw taala helps us, bless us with countless blessings, which we could never imagine. And which we could never count, which we could never, ever count my brothers and sisters, the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given us if we were able
to give the chance
to count, we will never be able to count them as Allah subhanaw taala says in Surah Ibrahim surah number 14, that if you were to count the favors of Allah, you will never be able to count them. So Allah Spano, tala has given us everything, good health,
good family, time, and everything.
We need to be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala. For this is indeed one of the effective ways to increase your wealth.
Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us all these strategies. But unfortunately, we don't discover these treasures which are stored within our homes, mentioned in the Quran. It is the need, it is a dire need. It is a high time that we stand up
to take this initiative of learning and studying the Quran, in which we find the treasures which will benefit us in this world and in the hereafter. And these are the 10 ways that we have mentioned my dear brothers and sisters to increase your wealth. I would like to end this episode with an ayah which is a dua that Allah subhanaw taala has taught us in Surah Allah Moran surah number three,
into the batara Allah subhanho wa Taala sees this beautiful door, mentioned in Surah Al Baqarah, Allah subhanaw taala says urbanna artina fit dunya has an auto waffle. Here it has an auto whoppin azova na, O r RA, O our Lord, or our rubber
give us good grant us good in this dunya in this world and in the hereafter and protect us from the punishment of the Hellfire protect us from the punishment of the hereafter. What aku da Juana and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen open your eyes to the
day. Believe not the lies that they always say. Look for the truth and swallow your pride for things that you thought didn't exist that you might find below that we are living
