Certain ayaat from Suratul Hashr were on my mind yesterday, the ones about the brotherhood, and Sheikh Ibrahim recited that very surah in salah today. Sheikh Yaser Birjas once told us during a brothers QA session that rizq is more than just money, but rather it includes other blessings, including your wife, kids, etc. Alhamdulillah, I’ve been fortunate enough to come across some brothers who are amazing, mashaAllah, who exemplify the ayaat and ahadeeth about brotherhood we come across so often, particularly between the Muhajiroon and Ansaar. It reinforces the idea that reading a book will never compare to the actual emotion and experience.

For the poor emigrants who were expelled from their homes and their properties, seeking bounty from Allah and [His] approval and supporting Allah and His Messenger, [there is also a share]. Those are the truthful.

And [also for] those who were settled in al-Madinah and [adopted] the faith before them. They love those who emigrated to them and find not any want in their breasts of what the emigrants were given but give [them] preference over themselves, even though they are in privation. And whoever is protected from the stinginess of his soul – it is those who will be the successful.

And [there is a share for] those who came after them, saying, “Our Lord, forgive us and our brothers who preceded us in faith and put not in our hearts [any] resentment toward those who have believed. Our Lord, indeed You are Kind and Merciful.”

[Hashr: 8-10]

Makkah Ruku

It was narrated that al-Nu’maan ibn Basheer said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“The believers, in their mutual mercy, love and compassion, are like a (single) body; if one part of it feels pain, the rest of the body will join it in staying awake and suffering fever.”

تَرَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ فِي تَرَاحُمِهِمْ وَتَوَادِّهِمْ وَتَعَاطُفِهِمْ كَمَثَلِ الْجَسَدِ إِذَا اشْتَكَى عُضْوًا تَدَاعَى لَهُ سَائِرُ جَسَدِهِ بِالسَّهَرِ وَالْحُمَّى

Abu Dhar Jundub bin Junadah and Abu Abdul Rahman Mu’adh bin Jabal, radiyallahu anhuma, reported that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, said:

“Fear Allah wherever you may be; follow up an evil deed with a good one which will wipe (the former) out, and behave good-naturedly towards people.”

[Al-Tirmidhi relates it, saying: It is a good (hasan) Tradition. In some copies he says: It is a good and genuine (hasan and sahih) Hadith.]

Sources for wealth

  1. Always look for wealth from a halal source
    1. O mankind, eat from whatever is on earth [that is] lawful and good and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy. [Baqarah: 168]
  1. Taqwa – leading a righteous life
    1. And whoever fears Allah – He will make for him a way out. And will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon Allah – then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Allah has already set for everything a [decreed] extent. [Talaq: 2-3]
  1. Istighfar – seeking forgiveness
    1. And said, ‘Ask forgiveness of your Lord. Indeed, He is ever a Perpetual Forgiver. He will send [rain from] the sky upon you in [continuing] showers. And give you increase in wealth and children and provide for you gardens and provide for you rivers. [Nuh: 10-12]
  1. Shukr an-ni’ma – being grateful and thankful to Allah
    1. And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor].. [Ibrahim: 7]
  1. Sadaqah – giving charity for the sake of Allah
    1. But whatever thing you spend [in His cause] – He will compensate it.. [Saba: 39]
