Don’t Single Out Your Sustenance

Don’t Single Out Your Sustenance

Once, I was asked, “Since Allah the Exalted has ensured our sustenance, are we allowed to ask for plenty of money?”

Also, a preacher once delivered his sermon live on one of the TV stations, saying, “Allah has ensured the measure of our sustenance, whether we work hard or not, it certainly will come to us. What we’re not certain of is whether we’ll enter the Paradise or the Hell, thus, this is the urgent matter to strive for, so that we’ll be able to seize the Paradise.” Or so he said; although it doesn’t match his sermon word per word, but the important point from his saying were:

Ruling of Working in Court

Working in Court

Ruling of Working in Court

There are two types of court, shari’a court (religious court) and general court that use positive laws.

This second type could further be divided into two; court that use laws that differ from Allah’s law in various criminal cases, and court for deciding cases regarding administrative cases (for example, constitutional court, -ed).

Ruling of Working in Court needs to be detailed, depends on the type of the court

If the court adopt shari’a law (in the matter of inheritance, etc) or general court that doesn’t use laws that against the shari’a law, it is allowed to work in it; whether as a common employee, a judge, or an attorney.

In contrast, if the court is a general court that tends to use laws that are different from shari’a laws in cases of murder or other kind of criminal act, it is not allowed to work there, even just as an administration staff. It is considered as helping one another in committing sin and hostility, something forbidden in this religion, as revealed in the second verse of chapter Al Maida/The Table Spread.

If a person continues to work at that court as a judge, then he’ll be included as a person who use human-made laws that inappropriate with Allah’s law, and this is considered as a major sin; even worse, it may drag him to infidelity, expelling him from his religion.

“Reward” for A Deceiver

Such as what happened to a monkey in this story below, in which he punished a man who had deceived others in transaction in order to gain a lot of profits. This evil act is considered as devouring people’s wealth wrongly, whereas Allah the Glorified and Exalted had declared,

Again, About Debt

about debt

In the name of Allah.

“O Allah, please ease and help me.”

In Question and Answer section of the site www.KonsultasiSyariah.com, we often received many whines about debt. Often too, some of those whiner told about the advice of shaman in their mails. Among them there are people who use the chapter Al Fatihah as their secret trick to be rich, or use recitation made by the “Kiai” (religious figure). Indeed, there are various ways people take to obtain money instantly when they are cornered.

Dear readers, probably it has became human’s trademark. When he is cornered, shari’a rules are much lesser priority. Even though he has to sacrifice his faith, he’ll do it, or anything; the most important thing is to solve the problem as soon as possible. Indeed, this is the portrait of a looser, whose patience is as paper thin, upon carrying trial that Allah has destined for him.
