Let’s make sure we are not compromising our taqwa by falling for the following trap of materialism. We present a closing excerpt from Hazrat Khalifatul Masih (aba):
“If one accumulates wealth by telling lies, by usurping others or through deceit, such wealth is not a source of good, it eventually becomes a source of evil. God says that to avoid His chastisement, provision should be acquired through fair means and it is the righteous who are given provision through fair means; this provision comes from God from ways and means beyond imagination. It is stated: ‘…And he who fears Allah — He will make for him a way out.’(65:3)(Friday Sermon, July 4, 2014)
