How Do We Earn & Spend Those US Dollars, Pound Sterling, Euros etc

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy


A reminder before we quote Imaam Ibnul Qayyim regarding earnings and spending

If earnings and spending is Haraam, blameworthy or worthless, ask Allaah –In This Month- to help you abandon such a path & take practical steps towards rectification!


Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said: The Daraahim (i.e. monies) are four (types): [1] The dirham (i.e. money) that was earned in obedience to Allaah and spent in fulfilment of the rights of Allaah; this is of the best Daraahim. [2]The dirham that was earned in disobedience to Allaah and spent in disobedience to Allaah; this one is the most evil of the Daraahim. [3] The dirham that was earned by way of harming a Muslim and spent to harm a Muslim; this one is the same as (dirham number two). [4] The dirham that was earned by way of permissible means and spent on permissible desires; this one is neither for nor against (you). This is the basis of the Daraahim.
