The Religion of Islam is a Perfect Solution for all Problems (Part 22e): [Some Corrupt Solutions to The Problem of Wealth and Poverty]


In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

Imaam As-Sadi [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: These religious teachings and guidance (see footnote a) – from Allaah and His Messenger – for the rich and poor will bring them good, prevents them from evil and harm, and produces for them the most beautiful fruitful outcomes in this life and the next. This is the only solution – from Ar Rabb Al-Majeed (see footnote b) – to the problem of wealth and poverty, and everything else besides it is suffering and misery, harm and destruction. And Allaah is the Bestower of success.

Commentary: The Shaikh (the author) said that this is the only solution and everything else besides it is suffering and misery, harm and destruction. If you look at the people, you find that they have proposals for the problem of poverty, but these proposals are corrupt. Many of these solutions are an offence against the religion and harmful to a person’s devotion in worship. You find strange things in some these solutions, abominations, lack of fairness (see footnote c) and fooling around with the intellects. Some of these solutions hinders a person’s zeal, diligence, hard work etc (1)

Footnote b:

Ar-Rabb: The Lord and Nurturer. The Lord and Master Who has none like Him in His Lordship. The One Who nurtures and rectifies the affairs of the creation by the favors which He showers upon them. The sovereign Owner Who alone creates and commands. The One Who controls the affairs and grants blessings. The One Who nurtures. The Creator. The Provider. The One Who aids. And The One Who guides.

Al-Majeed: The One Perfect in Glory and Honor. The One Great in Honor. The One greatly extolled and praised. The Magnificent One, having the attributes of glory, majesty, greatness, and splendour. The One greater, more tremendous, and more exalted than everything. The One glorified and venerated in the hearts of His beloved servants. [By Shaikh Abu Talhah Dawud Burbank (may Allaah have mercy upon him and his wife)].

Footnote c: Shaikh Abu Khadeejah [may Allaah preserve him] said: In reality, non-Muslim Western nations only make things worse by forcing these nations to borrow more and more money from Western banks at interests rates that are crippling on their economies – and by placing tarriffs and embargoes on goods imported from the most fertiles lands of in Africa into Europe and North America. It is not in the interest of the Western powers and their elites, and huge multi-national companies that the African nations (and other poor regions of the world) should become self-sufficient and prosperous because they fear that may affect the balance of power and wealth in the world.

According to biased and indoctrinated scientists, who are educated in Western universities and institutions funded by their governments and huge multi-national companies, another cause of poverty is population growth in countries that cannot afford to feed the extra mouths. This however is false notion, since the world has enough farmland, resources, water, cattle, fish and wild game to support entire nations and continents. The European colonialist powers spent many centuries (400 to 500 years) conquering Asia, Africa, the Far-East, the Americas and elsewhere, and they stripped the natural resources of those conquered lands – then they took the natural resources, wealth and humans (as slaves), and built their industrial revolution on that plundered wealth on the back of wealth and human resource they pillaged unjustly from others. Today, when those nations wish to build their economies, strengthen their independence, increase their populations, build their defenses in order to make their nations strong, they are prevented through international treaties related to health and social engineering, goods embargos, tariffs, climate-control measures, etc. Then they are told that they are poor because their nations have too many mouths to feed! https://abukhadeejah.com/the-causes-of-poverty-in-light-of-climate-change-population-growth-and-other-factors-part-ii-ethics-2-4/
