of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Generally people believe
wealth/treasures are Money (Gold, Silver, Dollars and Pounds etc.) as
well as their children. It is indeed true that wealth is a great
blessing from God which He bestows upon His servants. And
the one who earns it justly to make it Halaal Income, and spends it
properly, and gives it to those who really deserve it, without any
doubt earns a great reward from God.
Wealth and children are
during worldly life. Yet honorable deeds that last forever are better
as recompense from your Lord and even better to hope for,
And it is not your
wealth, nor your
children that bring you nearer to Us (Allah), but only he (will please
Us) who believes, and does righteous deeds; for such (people), there
will be a double reward for what they did, and they will reside in the
high dwellings (of Paradise), in peace and security,
Know that the life
of this world is but amusement and diversion and adornment and boasting
to one another and competition in increase of wealth and children
- like the example of a rain whose [resulting] plant growth pleases the
tillers; then it dries and you see it turned yellow; then it becomes
[scattered] debris. And in the Hereafter is severe punishment
forgiveness from Allah and approval. And what is the worldly
except the enjoyment of delusion, (Al_Quraan_057:020).
It is not Righteousness
that you turn your faces towards the East and the West, but
righteousness is this that one should believe in Allah and the last day
and the angels and the Book and the prophets, and give away WEALTH (Money, Knowledge/Education,
Helping Hands etc.)
out of love for Him to the near of kin and the orphans and the needy
and the wayfarer and the beggars and for (the emancipation of) the
captives, and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate; and the performers
of their promise when they make a promise, and the patient in distress
and affliction and in time of conflicts-- these are they who are true
(to themselves) and these are they who guard (against evil),
Muslim Ummah is facing a
Turbulence of Economic Downtime at present time along with other
nations, since they failed to follow the Dos and Don’ts from the True Book
of Guidance (Al_Quraan).
As we have seen, many Muslims believe that by verbal believing they
will be saved, BUT that type of believes never worked before, nor
working at present time and will never work in future, since Islaam is
a practical religion.
of the Muslims in Muslim countries are facing Disasters and still
supporting those Rulers (Religious as well as Non-Religious) who could
be actually Looters and Robbers and stocking billions of dollars/pounds
abroad and many defense/security personals might be taking bribes from
them, since not doing any justified actions against them, rather doing
unjustified actions against little fish for showoff to general public,
while skipping GIANT Crocodiles and Alligators. They might be wiping

It is time now to open
our eyes and
correct ourselves in the light of the Quraan, the Book of Guidance
(Ref: Al_Quraan_002:002), which is really free from any contradiction
and error (Al_Quraan_004:082) at present time. We must reorganize ourselves to
face all the modern challenges for which educations is the key.

then you can help Islaam much better way and Allah will give you great
rewards for helping to establish Allah’s Deen. Always Remember, How Much is Too Much, and Avoid
Muslim Ummah from the depth of your heart to please Allah:
First step to face all
and improve Ummah’s economy is to educate yourself (men and women) as
well your kids (boys and girls). In addition to reading the Quraan with
understanding, study other professional studies. You may not do this
alone. It is a Great
Peaceful Jihaad and women must need to come forward, as they did at the
time of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him).
If a Female is well
educated, she can
take care of her kids in much better way, and help them do their
homework and if she knows driving as well, she can pickup and drop-off
her kids. Females are after all Human beings and they may get sick, so
some of them must be Good Doctors and Nurses. To teach Female Doctors
and Nurses, some Females must be Good Teachers as well. In Brief you cannot have a well decent and
educated society without educated Females.
If Females are left behind then it will lead the society poor and
backwards, what is happening in most parts of the Muslim World. If
Women are left uneducated the whole race of Muslims may be left
uneducated. Wherever Allah mentioned about education, it also includes
Female’s education as well. Female is the principal part in a family’s
success. To ask Allah for education, “RABBE – ZIDNEE – ILMAA” is for
Female as well. At least, if Females are well educated
enough, they can do good Dawah, while men are busy in their work.

start with all those issues which are creating great turbulence in
Muslim Ummah Economy, keeping in mind how much is too much.
Avoid loans and avoid waste as
much as possible, (Ref: Al_Quraan_009.060, 025.063-067).
Route Cause of Bad Economy among Muslim Families:
Marriage is neither a
joke nor a
play; instead it is only for the love of Allah and Sunnah of Rasool
Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him). In our sweet home we may have been living
along with parent, kids and spouse and may have other relatives as
well. Islaam teaches LOVE with our parents, spouse kids and other
relatives. We need to learn how to live all happily and united under
one roof. Let us take an example of Husband and wife living with their
kids and parents. We all have some needs.
Need to educate our
kids, so we must send them school, timing could be 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM,
which needs daily preparation for the school.
Treat with the
parents in a grateful manner, BUT if parents are very old then we
cannot say even a single word of contempt. So who will look after parent
while husband is at work other than TEAM-WORK?
Need many other things for the spouse as well as for myself too.
For all of these requirements we need money, for which we need to go
and work sincerely.
If all of these
requirements are to
be done during the day, then how can a Husband go to work, look after
parent and kids and do housekeeping as well and all at one time, like
multitasking. E.g. 9:00
AM husband must be at the office, 9:00
AM he must be at the school to drop the kids, 9:00 AM he must be
with the parents for the company and also 9:00 AM doing the
entire house keeping. It
simply means killing the Husband.
If wife is intelligent enough then she can share all other tasks during
the day time, while husband can concentrate on the work. Husband cannot
concentrate on work if his mind is taken away. It will be like he is living in a
torture cell in his

need to share the load from his wife. If they can afford they must go
for alternate help, like child day care or other support, of course
those will not be free and have to pay the price for each services
Women are allowed to work, (Ref: Al_Quraan_004.032). Rasool Allah

(Radi-Allahu-Anha), which was a sign of Modern Child Day Care.

in Canada, Chinese communities are doing very well. Husbands and wives
both work extremely hard and their Parents are helping raising their
Kids. Also Indian communities are performing very well, since both
husbands and wives both work together.
Verily Allah will never change
the condition of a people until they (first) change it themselves,
And if you turn away, Allah will
exchange you for some another people, and they will not be like you,
