Want to know the state of your income?

images (7)Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilaani Rahmatullah Alayh mentioned: “O people! I realise the state of your wealth when I look at the manner in which it is spent. If I see that the wealth is spent in good avenues I understand that the income was Halaal (lawful). If it was spent in futile and incorrect avenues I deduce that the income was Haraam (unlawful).”

A persian saying reads as:

مال حرام بود ﺑﺠﺎﺋﮯ حرام رفت 

ill-gotten, ill-spent

(It was Haraam wealth and it was spent in a Haraam avenue.)
