Muslims and their families are held to a high, exacting standard when it comes to what we may do with our wealth, and how we may invest it. We have to remain constantly vigilant, avoiding all forms of haram financial entanglements, of which there are many. It can be such a daunting task that many faithful Muslims choose to store and ignore their wealth, rather than risk haram noncompliance. But though that choice is understandable, it may not be the best way to approach financial questions of faith.
Further complicating matters, we also have zakah obligations to meet. Zakat al-Mal requires that we face our financial circumstances head-on, with clear purpose — especially as our wealth begins to grow far above nisab. We have a very real, religious duty to be mindful of our wealth.
So as Western Muslims, how do we approach these challenging issues? Where do we even begin? Fortunately, you’ve taken the first step toward answering those questions.
The sacred writings of the Qur’an specifically mentions wealth, wealth acquisition, and suitable distribution. The Holy Book has already given us a blueprint by which we may address the challenges of what to do with our wealth. And we have some of the best religious scholars in the world advising us on exactly what is permitted by the Qur’an.
