*BEAUTIFY YOUR LIFESTYLE(Part 1)*
*Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam said: “_Every ummah has a major test. And the major test/weakness of my ummah is wealth._”(Ibn Hibbaan)*
أخْبَرَنا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ المُنْذِرِ بْنِ سَعِيدٍ ()، حَدَّثَنا إبْراهِيمُ بْنُ أبِي داوُدَ البُرُلُّسِيُّ ()، حَدَّثَنا آدَمُ بْنُ أبِي إياسٍ، حَدَّثَنا اللَّيْثُ بْنُ سَعْدٍ، عَنْ مُعاوِيَةُ بْنُ صالِحٍ، عَنْ عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنُ جُبَيْرِ بْنِ نُفَيْرٍ، عَنْ أبِيهِعَنْ كَعْبِ بْنِ عِياضٍ، قالَ: سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ﷺ يَقُولُ:«لِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ فِتْنَةٌ، وإنَّ فِتْنَةَ أُمَّتِي المالابن حبان
*First of all, know that it is an obligation for each adult male to work and provide for his needy parents and his family.*
عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مَسْعُودٍ – رضي الله عنه- قالَ: قالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ – ﷺ -: ««طَلَبُ كَسْبِ الحَلالِ فَرِيضَةٌ بَعْدَ الفَرِيضَةِ»» رَواهُ البَيْهَقِيُّ فِي «شُعَبِ الإيمانِ.

 *Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam said: “_To work for halaal living is an obligation that comes after obligatory prayer obligation_.”*(Shu’abul imaan) 
*But to work on the objective to amass wealth, to show off and to achieve worldly goals, then this is prohibited 🚫.*
حَدَّثَنا أبُو بَكْرٍ قالَ: حَدَّثَنا وكِيعٌ، قالَ: حَدَّثَنا سُفْيانُ، عَنْ حَجّاجِ بْنِ فُرافِصَةَ، عَنْ رَجُلٍ، عَنْ مَكْحُولٍ، عَنْ أبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قالَ: قالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ: «مَن طَلَبَ الدُّنْيا حَلالًا اسْتِعْفافًا عَنِ المَسْألَةِ، وسَعْيًا عَلى أهْلِهِ، وتَعَطُّفًا عَلى جارِهِ، لَقِيَ اللَّهَ ووَجْهُهُ كالقَمَرِ لَيْلَةَ البَدْرِ، ومَن طَلَبَ الدُّنْيا مُكاثِرًا بِها حَلالًا مُرائِيًا، لَقِيَ اللَّهَ وهُوَ عَلَيْهِ غَضْبانُ»مصنف ابن أبي شيبة
*Reported in Musannaf ibn abi shaibah that Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam said that _one who earn a halaal living to prevent oneself from begging others, and to provide for his family and to spend on his neighbour, then he will meet Allah Ta’ala with a face shining like the full moon. But one who work to accumulate wealth and to show off  , then he will meet Allah Ta’ala such that Allah Ta’ala will be angry with him_.*
*So important that we put landmarks to our dunya quests, brakes a few times and readjust our timings to a moderate halaal earning. Not like a mad horse running wildly without any landmark and has only one objective: increase mileage and surpass the rival competitor.*
*Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam said: “_O people! Fear Allah and beautify your quest to earn a living. Because a person will receive his destined sustenance, even a bit late than expected, but definitely before his death. So fear Allah and beautify your quest of sustenance. So take only what is halaal and leave whatever is haraam._*(Ibn Majah)
حَدَّثَنا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ المُصَفّى الحِمْصِيُّ قالَ: حَدَّثَنا الوَلِيدُ بْنُ مُسْلِمٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ جُرَيْجٍ، عَنْ أبِي الزُّبَيْرِ، عَنْ جابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، قالَ: قالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ: «أيُّها النّاسُ اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وأجْمِلُوا فِي الطَّلَبِ، فَإنَّ نَفْسًا لَنْ تَمُوتَ حَتّى تَسْتَوْفِيَ رِزْقَها وإنْ أبْطَأ عَنْها، فاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وأجْمِلُوا فِي الطَّلَبِ، خُذُوا ما حَلَّ، ودَعُوا ما حَرُمَ»ابن ماجة
*To bring the beauty/jamaal gear, i will insha Allah talk on a few adjustments.* *The Quraan kareem talk on sahabah ra earning halaal without breaching the spirit of deen.*

رِجالٌ لا تُلْهِيهِمْ تِجارَةٌ ولا بَيْعٌ عَنْ ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ وإقامِ الصَّلاةِ وإيتاءِ الزَّكاةِ يَخافُونَ يَوْمًا تَتَقَلَّبُ فِيهِ القُلُوبُ والأبْصارُ
“*_These are noblemen that their business, their profession does not distract them from Zikrullah, establishing salaah and giving out Zakaat.* *They fear a day when hearts and eyes will be in dismay*_.”(24:37)*
*So sahabahs had professions. But their professions did not prevent them from daily salaahs, going in the path of Allah when called and helping the needy. In fact, their ultimate ambition was akhirah as the ayah mentions. So dunya should not harm our aakhirah.*
*So brake your business hours and beautify your quest with salaahs, zikrullah, siesta and spending on others.* 
*Also take out time to read a hizb/a part of Quran daily. Do a few tasbeehs after Fajr and Assr*.
