  • Reminder 71-Money is not Everything

    :start:

    :salams

    ''Surely we have sent to every nation a messenger saying, worship Allah and avoid taaghoot* (false gods).'' [Soorah a-Nahl (16):36]

    Worship ['ebaadah] in the Islamic view, includes more than just fasting, paying zakah, Hajj and animal sacrifices. It includes emotions like love, trust and fear all of which have degrees which should only be directed to Allah *saw*.

    For example, love is a form of worship which, in its perfection, should only be directed towards Allah.

    Allah has addressed these emotions and warned against excesses in them as follows:

    "There are among men those who take [for worship] other besides Allah as equals to Him. They love them as they should love Allah. But those who believe have a much greater love of Allah." [Soorah al-Baqrah (2):165 ].


    If man allows the love of anyone or anything to come between himsef and Allah, then he has worshipped that thing. In this way, money can become one's god or even one's desires could become god.

    The prophet :saw: said, '' The worshipper of the dirham will always be miserable.'' [Bukhari].

    Sometimes we do get carried away with our bank balances and worried when we dont have as much as we once did. Just a reminder that money is not the be all and end all. What we get is what has been written for us in our rizq...not a penny more and not a penny less. All things come from Allah *swt* so have sabr for what you want and shukr for what you have inshALLAH.

    ...and i remind myself before anyone else inshALLAH.

    *Taaghoot actually means anything which is worshipped along with Allah or instead of Allah.
