Volume 3, Book 34, Number 349:
Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar:
Allah’s Apostle said, “Do not urge somebody to return what he has already bought (i.e. in optional sale) from another seller so as to sell him your own goods.”
Narrated Abu Said:
Allah’s Apostle forbade the selling by Munabadha, i.e. to sell one’s garment by casting it to the buyer not allowing him to examine or see it. Similarly he forbade the selling by Mulamasa. Mulamasa is to buy a garment, for example, by merely touching it, not looking at it.
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, “A time will come when one will not care how one gains one’s money, legally or illegally.”
Bismillah(In The Name of Allah)
Lights are on the brink of being shut off? You just lost your job and cannot even borrow money since you won’t be able to pay it back? Since food prices are rising you can only afford to buy noodles and a loaf of bread? You have been looking everywhere for a job but either you are over qualified or just not the right fit? You have more than your mouth to feed? You see an opportunity but hesitate to grab it for fear of not being able to afford what it requires? You feel like you have no support from your friends, family or spouse? You would like to just run away from it all and forget any of it is happening? …..Get the point? All of us share some, if not the same, of these experiences and because we lack the ability to just believe that we can make a difference in any of these situations we fall into the trap of feeling sorry for ourselves and we allow our doubt to become our governor.
When you think… There is no possible way I can get enough money to pay this bill and I wish I could just…. well change this thought by saying…I know there has got to be a way to get enough money to pay this bill and even if I don’t get the money I WILL BE ALRIGHT!! Why? Because nothing in this life is forever! Everything we experience here in this life is certainly not permanent and the GOOD part about it is …Allah keeps giving! So be greatful and thank Him for what he is giving you and put your trust in Him. Money cannot assure you eternal life in the heavens but your Lord can. Whatever you earn as wealth here in this life, it has already been decreed by Allah and no one can have a hand in it. You have got to believe that Allah does not desire difficulty for you.
Allah keeps giving us but some of us are blind. We keep worrying about these things that neither shape who we are or help us get to where we need to go. You see, Allah did not make any mistakes when He created the Heavens and the Earth and all that exists. We are the ones who are making the mistakes and if we don’t choose to learn and take advantage of the blessings that come from making them we will continue to be lost. Whatever happened years ago, months ago, days ago, minutes ago, and even seconds ago is gone and you certainly cannot hold on to it or get it back though you would really like to…especially if something good really happened!
I challenge you to take a few moments to take a good long look at who you really are , who really want to be , and who will you connect with to make things happen in your life that will allow you to receive what Allah has in store for you. Your success is yet to come! Those who think success, win every time! Your struggle to overcome the many obstacles you face on your journey is what makes you successful. It’s on you but you are not alone!
