Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm. Madad:

الْمَالُ وَالْبَنُونَ زِينَةُ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا ۖ وَالْبَاقِيَاتُ الصَّالِحَاتُ خَيْرٌ عِندَ رَبِّكَ ثَوَابًا وَخَيْرٌ أَمَلًا

(Qur’ān 18:46). ‘Al-Mālu Wa Al-Banūna Zīnatu Al-Ĥayāati Ad-Dunyā ۖ Wa Al-Bāqiyātu Aş-Şāliĥātu Khayrun `Inda Rabbika Thawābāan Wa Khayrun ‘Amalā’, ‘Wealth and children are [but] adornment of the worldly life. But the enduring good deeds are better to your Lord for reward and better for [one’s] hope.’

Wealth, family and other things are all adornment of this world, says Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. What will remain are the righteous deeds. They are the goodness. Nevertheless, Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla gave mankind wealth and children during their life in this world. We must take care of them. They are favours, favors given by Allah ﷻ. Taking care of them is something loved by Allah ﷻ.

As long as you are on the right path, don’t give your Akhirah away for Dunya, says Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Nevertheless, be careful with the favors given to you in this world. Protect them. Certainly, there is no more safety in the time we live in. There is no more trust. Therefore, we must be careful.

When you borrow something or lend something, Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla tells to write it down. Moreover, have a witness between you. Write it down and do not leave it like that. There is a whole page written only about borrowing and lending. It is not a shame to do so. It is not a sin. Contrarily, you will disobey the order of Allah ﷻ when you don’t do it. No need to say, “We are friends. We are brothers. We are relatives. We know this person”. No need to do so. For everything, Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla has shown the beautiful way to Muslims and Mu’mins. So when you borrow or lend something, make sure to write it down. Don’t say later on, “I gave and couldn’t get it back.” “Is there anything between you?” “No, there is nothing. We know each other. Therefore, we trusted each other and gave it.” The fault is yours then. Don’t complain afterwards saying, “He took my money and didn’t give it back”. Go to court, but even if you go, you cannot prove anything.

Therefore, guarding the favors given to you is your duty. You should not give them to such liars, thieves and mischievous ones. Because they are your Rizq that Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla gave you, the Rizq of your children. It is your duty to protect it. May Allah ﷻ help us insha’Allah.

People have lost their conscience [more] everyday. They don’t look if someone is poor, but cheat all people. They do all kinds of things you can ever imagine. And people are cheated. As they think they will earn a little from it, they are cheating easily. Therefore, be careful. Take care of your properties and favors given to you. May Allah ﷻ protect us from evil.

When you protect your property, you protect others from committing a sin. You protect thiefs from stealing and cheaters from cheating people. There is benefit to both you and the other side. Therefore, take care of your property. Don’t let it be snatched by useless people. May Allah ﷻ protect us. May Allah ﷻ help us.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
