People and Money

As we all know that money is important in our life..Because without money, how can we buy a food to survive our life right? And we need shelter too right?

But money also can influence and deflect people personality.. Some may be greedy and may to oppress the poor or taking bribes.. They felt the money doesn't enough and they need more.. The poor will find the rich to borrow some money while the rich they'll ask more money if the poor pay the money back.. (faham tak ayat ni, maaflah saya ni tak pandai english)..

Abu Qatadah related that the Prophet said: If anyone would like Allah to save him from the hardships of the Day of Resurrection, he should give more time to his debtor who is short of money, or remit his debt altogether. (Muslim)

"Abu Huraira related that the Prophet said: On the night of the Miraj I came upon a group of people whose bellies were like houses. They were full of snakes which could be seen from outside their bellies. I asked Gabriel who they were, and he told me that they were the people who had practiced Riba (Interest). (Ahmad, Ibn Maja)"

"Abdullah ibn Hanjalah related that the Prophet said: A dirham of Riba (interest) knowingly taken by a man is a sin worse than committing Zina (fornication) 36 times (Ahmad, Daraqutni)."

Some people, when they're asked to keep a lot of money they become "gelap mata" and take some of the money and put it in their wallet.. ( tidak ada kena mengena dengan sesiapa mahu yang hidup ataupun yang sudah meninggal)..

For those who have family, a lot of money also not happy..Because of what?? The reason is from where/source of the money? Is it used in the right way? Did you pay your income alms? The reason is no..that why so many people felt not happy even they've a lot of money..

"Abu Huraira narrated that the Prophet said: A time will come upon the people when one will not care how one gains one's money, legally or illegally. (Bukhari)"

"It is reported by Jabir that the Prophet said: The flesh and body that is raised on unlawful sustenance shall not enter Paradise. Hell is more deserving to the flesh that grows on one's body out of unlawful sustenance. (Ahmad)."

Nowadays, teenage become immoral because lack of attention from their parents.. Parents gave them a lot of money while they off to work.. So, teenager will used this money to enjoy with their friends..

Money can make people arrogant, "riak" and show off.. Some of them feel like nothing if they help people-in-need such as the poor and orphanage..

"Hast thou observed him who belieth religion? That is he who repelleth the orphan, and urgeth not the feeding of the needy" (Quran 107: 1-3).

But money also have benefits.. Rich people with-kind-heart can do a charity like give some money to an orphans, the poor to alleviate.. Other than that, if we used the money with the correct ways, sure we'll be in heaven soon..

Narrated Hakim bin Hizam that the Prophet said: The upper hand is better than the lower hand (i.e. he who gives in charity is better than him who takes it). One should start giving first to his dependents. And the best object of charity is that which is given by a wealthy person (from the money which is left after his expenses). And whoever abstains from asking others for some financial help, Allah will give him and save him from asking others, Allah will make him self-sufficient. (Bukhari)

"Allah will deprive usury of all blessing, but will give increase for deeds of charity" (Quran 2: 276).

"And they are ordained naught else than to serve Allah, keeping religion pure for Him, as men by nature upright, and to establish worship and to pay the poor-due (Zakah). That is true religion." (Quran 98:5)

Abbas related that a man asked the Prophet, Tell me what should I do to be admitted to Paradise and he (the Prophet) answered: Worship Allah associating nothing with Him, observe Salat, pay Zakah and strengthen the ties of kinship. (Bukhari, Muslim)

Abu Huraira narrated that the Prophet said: The best charity is that which is practiced by a wealthy person. And start giving first to your dependents. (Bukhari)

If we lived as the poor, I think if we always do remember Allah..We are not poor people actually.. Allah is always by our side, and always listen and help us.. Then, our life we'll be happy and calm..

No matter how rich or poor our life.., do remember Allah always.. Only Allah can make our life happy and better..
