The trial of wealth is very real, with many examples of how wealth can lead to pride and arrogance evident in our societies today. It is detailed in Chapter 18 of the Holy Quran, and in this khutba, we look at how the parable in these verses relates to us today, and what we can learn from it.admin
Mr Mustaq Ali in the video above gives us a detailed view of what Chapter 2 of The Holy Quran is telling us.
The Chapter deals with the idea of people having an abundance of wealth and it discusses how wealth diverts us from the reality of life and how we can become engrossed in gaining wealth and popularity in society.
Although no verse of the Holy Quran says we should be poor we should be cautious about wealth and use it wisely for the betterment of ourselves and humanity. This wealth is only temporary and soon when death is upon us we will know why we were given wealth and see what we have really done with it.
