Our Halal Money campaign is brought to you in partnership with the Al-Qalam Sharī‘ah Scholar Panel. Al Qalam was set up to provide authentic advice and guidance on issues relating to money matters such as zakat, sadaqah, Wills and other matters such as investments and legal contracts.
Earning an honest living, avoiding excessive debt, budgeting wisely and ensuring money is spent properly are not only Islamically important, but also make a prosperous and stable society. Given the current harsh economic climate, it is more important than ever to understand what it means to live in a Sharī’ah-compliant way.
If you have never considered the legality of your financial matters, or are unaware of your obligation of ensuring you only deal in halal money, our guides, seminars and trained professionals are here to help.
Such was the importance of ensuring their financial matters were halal, Umar ibn al Khattab introduced an inspector in the market of Madinah to check the weights, measures and transactions. Although we have lost this practice today, we now have to take the initiative and responsibility on our shoulders and educate ourselves, and those in our care, on the specific rulings and regulations. The Prophet (saw) said:
“The feet of the son of Ādam will not move on the Day of Judgement until he is asked regarding how he earned his wealth and how he spent it.”
Many people are under the misconception that their earnings will be affected if they decide to follow the Sharī’ah and do away with haram earnings, contracts, riba and transactions. In fact, Allah promises us the opposite:
“And whoever fears Allah, for him Allah brings forth a way out, and gives him provision (rizq) from where he does not even imagine…”
(Surah At-Talaq: 2/3)
How much easier will be our meeting with Allah if we know that our transactions and wealth were pure and used in halal ways!
