643-VERY NEAR AT HAND

VERY NEAR AT HAND

Rang-o-Noor (BY SA'DI)

(Shumara: 643)

May Allah make our wealth our own asset and save it from going waste! Man's own asset is the wealth which may become useful for him in eternal life in the Hereafter; which may guard him against Allah's wrath and punishment, severity in the grave and Fire of hell or which is used in his essential needs and defends him against begging from the people.
Hazrat Abd-ur-Rahmaan bin Auf: He is a very high-ranked Sahaabi, one of the chosen ten individuals(Ashra Mubashara) and among the people of Badr. He never lagged behind Jihaad from the Ghazwah Badr to all Ghazwahs to his last breath. There was a wonderful amplitude in his wealth and lot due to the blessings of the supplication of the Holy Prophet ﷺ. He would always spend his wealth on Jihad in the way of Allah and religious tasks but instead of decreasing, his wealth kept multiplying. Neither did he ever ignore Jihaad nor was there any diminution in worship due to business of wealth. He subscribed a lot of wealth on the eve of the Ghazwah Tabook. Despite regular expending in the way of Allah as his wealth kept multiplying, so he left a lot of wealth as legacy. People talk of his legacy very enviably as large quantity of gold he left behind whereas we should talk of his wealth enviably that he spent a large amount on Jihaad and Din and honourable people. Let us study a few of his incidents:
Imaam Zahri says that during the life time of the Holy Prophet ﷺ, Hazrat Abd-ur-Rahmaan bin Auf spent half of his property i.e. four thousand Dirham, then forty thousand Dinar in the way of Allah. Then he donated 500 horses in the way of Allah, then he gave 1500 camels in the way of Allah. Most of his wealth was earned through trade.
Hazrat Abd-ur-Rahmaan sold his land for forty thousand Dinar and distributed all the amount among the Banu Zahra tribe, poor Muslims, emigrants and the holy wives of the Holy Prophetﷺ. He sent a few Dinar to Hazrat Ayeshah who said, "Who has sent this wealth?" The answer came, "Hazrat Abd-ur-Rahmaan bin Auf." Then the person who took that wealth away narrated the whole incident of selling the land and distributing the entire wealth. At this, Hazrat Ayeshah said, "The Holy Prophetﷺ had told her that only the contented and patient people would deal his wives compassionately." Then Hazrat Ayesha supplicated that Allah might make him drink water at the Salsabeel Spring.
Once, Hazrat Ayesha expressed apprehension at the affluence of Hazrat Abd-ur-Rahmaan bin Auf. Hearing this, he spent all his business caravan which comprised 700 camels and the merchandise including camels in the way of Allah whereas he subscribed two hundred Auqia (One silver Auqia is equal to 112.5 grams) silver in the Ghazwah Tabook.
The Muslims should study the incidents of Hazrat Abd-ur-Rahmaan bin Auf minutely so that they may also be granted with the capacity to spend wealth and their wealth many become their own asset.
Hazrat Zubair: He was a very high–ranked Sahaabi, one of the ten chosen ones, people of the Badr, relative of the Holy Prophetﷺ, Hazrat Abu Bakr's son-in-law and first head–offering slave who fought for Islam. He left a lot of wealth as legacy whereas he neither traded nor got busy with the worldly affairs nor accepted any high post nor drew any salary. All his life was spent in Jihaad. He took part in almost all the battles in the age of the Holy Prophetﷺ, Hazrat Abu Bakr, Hazrat Umar and Hazrat Usmaan. Allah placed great amplitude in his wealth due to the blessings of Jihaad.
He gave some wealth to sincere friends who invested it in business and gave him back its profit. The slaves whom he got as the spoils would also earn money for him but Hazrat Zubair neither counted his wealth nor diverted his attention from Jihaad to get busy in any business. When people went to place their wealth with him for safety, he would say, "Give me not as safety but as loan." Then that wealth was pent because he would spend much on the tasks of Din. When his one thousand slaves brought him profit from Syria, he would spend all the wealth before the break of the next day. In this way, he came under a great debt. A short while before his Shahaadat, he advised his son," Pay back my debt. If you face any difficulty, seek help from my Maula." The son said, "Who is Maula?" He said, "Allah Almighty." As the word Maula is used in many shades of meanings in Arabic, the son demanded detail. Amount of debt was large whereas nothing was found in the house except some immovable property. It seemed that the debt would not be paid despite selling the whole property but when he started selling it, a great amplitude occurred. All the debt was paid still six billion legacy was left for the heirs.
Matter of the Lot: There is only one incident that Hazrat Zubair left approx six billion as legacy. Imam Bukhaari makes this incident persuasion to Jihaad under the heading: '' باب برکۃ الغازی فی مالہ حیاومیتا مع النبی ﷺ وولاۃ الامر'' "Amplitude in the wealth of the Ghazi who waged Jihaad in the company of the Holy Prophetﷺ and his officials in his life and after death." Imaam Bukhaari has explained many points:
1. The Mujaahid in the way of Allah is blessed with amplitude.
2. Multiplicity and amplitude in wealth are different things.
3. Hazrat Zubair did no trade. He just waged Jihaad all his life still there was amplitude in his wealth.
4. Jihaad in the way of Allah is a source of gaining amplitude.
5. Jihaad was waged in the life of the Holy Prophetﷺ and the Sahaabah waged Jihaad in the company of their caliphs.
This is lot of Imaam Bukhaari that he presented legacy of a Sahaabi as persuasion to Din and Jihaad whereas stating the legacy of Hazrat Zubiar, some people invited the masses to frame multi-national companies and NGOs etc. etc. saying that as Hazrat Zubair left legacy in billions, all the Muslims should frame multi-national companies and NGOs etc. etc. This accumulation of wealth is found neither in the Holy Quran nor in the methods of the Holy Prophetﷺ nor did the traditionists take it up. Whom are these people following and what should the Muslims do?
Why This Persuasion? Man is naturally inclined to love wealth. There are very few people who do not love wealth. Whether you persuade someone or not, everyone is racing to collect wealth. But what is the responsibility of the scholars who sit at the pulpit of the Holy Prophetﷺ who says, " ان لکل امۃ فتنۃ وفتنۃ امتی المال Surely, there is sedition for every Ummah and sedition for my Ummah is wealth?" (Tirmizi)
The Holy Prophetﷺ says: I am not apprehensive of spelling poverty on you, I am afraid of endowing affluence on you as happened to those before you and that you begin to like it much as those people did. Then that (affluence) may ruin you as it destroyed those before you." (Al-Bukhaair, Al-Muslim)
This is style of the Holy Prophetﷺ about the world. People are instinctively inclined to the world. Then the Prophets and their followers come to the field and expose origin of the world to the people dissuading them to indulge themselves in the world. They advise them how to spend wealth persuading them to invest wealth in obligations and diminish the germs of the world in them.
Ah! Alas! These days, the Pagan world has chained the whole world economically, the usurious economic system, the biggest trap of slavery. When the Muslims are trapped by this system, they know neither Din nor Jihaad rather they become a docile toy in the hands of the Infidels so much so they cannot raise a voice in favour of their oppressed Muslims because their business interests are endangered due to it. No Muslim can frame a multi-national company until he accepts the usurious conditions of the enemies of Islam and imposes them on himself completely.
In this situation, it is not fair for the Ulama to collect the Muslims and persuade them to earn a lot and frame multi-national companies. If someone persuades them to it and someone plunges into it accepting their persuasion, all the portance of promotion of usury will be against those Ulama who persuade him to it. However, this practice will prove useful if there is Islamic government and the Muslims are persuaded to do so just to stabilize the government. At present, the duty of the Ulama is to persuade the Muslims to earn lawful living, spend in the way of Allah, follow Islamic dictates with regard to wealth and spend the maximum on Jihaad. The Infidelic system will shatter if there is Jihaad consequently, Islamic economy will itself stabilize if Allah wills. Our points seem to the Muslims very far-fetched dreams but the reality is opposite. The era of predominance of Islam is very near if Allah wills.
