“As I said, there is a lot to learn. Learning how to have money work for you is a lifetime study. Most people go to college for four years, and their education ends. I already know that my study of money will continue over my lifetime, simply because the more I find out, the more I find out I need to know. Most people never study the subject. They go to work, get their paycheck, balance their checkbooks, and that’s it. On top of that, they wonder why they have money problems. Then, they think that more money will solve the problem. Few realize that it’s their lack of financial education that is the problem. Continue reading

“Stay away from three destroyers, hold up three savers.
Three destroyers are following desires, self-admiration(ujb), avarice (shuhha)
Three savers are fear of Allah in secret and public, justice during anger, moderation both in affluence and poverty” Make your principles these things. Continue reading
Last week we saw the meaning of doubt and its causes. To review doubt causes confusion and depression. Indeed, the first way Satan leads people into the darkness of kufr (disbelief) is to cast doubt upon their heart. Once the person has disbelieved in Allah and The Day of Resurrection, he leads life without a definite goal. No matter how much he owns wealth in this world, his destination is hellfire, may Allah protect us. The best cure for disease of doubt is to seek correct knowledge and with sincere intention.

I was born in the 70s to a middle-class family consisting of my mother, father and two older brothers. My memories of family life are of a happy, secure, very close and loving family. Although my parents were not religious they were very strict in certain areas of my upbringing such as instilling good manners, generosity and consideration for others. Continue reading
People, however, tend to overlook the truth because their hearts are not touched by its invigorating light. Hence, they remain preoccupied with petty concerns, lost in a perpetual maze. They are only awakened when faced with inevitable doom, looking at the suffering that awaits them and enduring a humiliatingly and strong reproach: Continue reading

Sometimes when you think about your long journey of life that extends from your birth to death and then from death to the Day of Resurrection, it may seem to you very long and impossible to reach your end destination. Yes in this longest journey, you can’t travel alone. You should seek help and guidance through patience and salah. Every day seek help and guidance from Allah. You have known your starting point and where you’re going to that is– you’re not perished by death rather you will be resurrected and recompensed for your deeds. So when you carve your goal of this life, where you came from and where you’re going to in your mind, then there is no longer confusion and darkness in your life. In this manner you travel on the path of truth or straight path. So ask Allah for Istiqaamah (being upright on Islam). Keep in mind that there is no other path that bring you to the end good destination other than Islam. There may be many short ways that bring you good result in this fleeting world but they can’t bring you to the lasting good end. Continue reading
“Alif Lām. Rā. This is a book which We have bestowed on you, [O Muhammad], from on high so that you might bring forth all mankind, by their Lord’s leave, from darkness into the light, to the path of the Almighty, the One to whom all praise is due, to God, to whom all that is in the heavens and all that is on earth belongs. Woe to the unbelievers; for theirs will be a severe suffering. These are the ones who love the life of this world preferring it to the life to come, and who turn others away from God’s path and try to make it appear crooked. They have gone far astray.” Al-Qur’an Suura Ibraahim 14:1-3 Continue reading
When you’re tempted to evils, remember your ultimate goals. Remember that evil drags you back from any goal let alone ultimate goals. It becomes bar and tar in front of you. Mind is disturbed and confused due to sins. Mind is opened and brightened due to good deeds and fleeing from sins.
Imaan brightens mind, illuminates heart, sweetens life. Only the one who tastes bitter darkness of life and then tastes sweetness of imaan does know fruits of imaan. Continue reading
