...Your hard earned money is a blessing from God so reinvest it in goodness - reinvest it in purposeful and meaningful projects which will benefit both your duniya and akhirah - invest it in water wells, education programs, shelter homes, orphanages, food banks etc. Don't waste it on beauty treatments and health/diet fads - Ramadan is a natural detoxifier and botox!
♥ "We should know that Allah has created us to live an eternal life with no death, a life of pride and ease with no humiliation, a life of security with no fear, a life of richness with no poverty, a life of joy with no pain, a life of perfection with no flaws. Allah is testing us in this world with a life that will end in death, a life of pride that is accompanied by humiliation and degradation, a life that is tainted by fear, where joy and ease are mixed with sorrow and pain." ♥
Ibn Qayyim Al Jawziyyah
The best of teachers, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said:
“Carry on doing (good) deeds, for each person will find it easy to do such deeds as will lead him to his destined place for which he has been created. So, he who is destined to be among the happy (in the Hereafter), will find it easy to do the deeds characteristic of such people...”
[Part of an authentic Hadeeth collected by Al-Bukhari in his Saheeh, V.6, Hadeeth #472]
