Some people think that Islam is a religion of fighting wealth and actually encourage pauperism. This is simply not true. How a Muslim to think that Islam advocated poverty, while the Prophet himself took refuge in Allah from poverty? Messenger of Allah said: “O Allah, I seek refuge in You from disbelief and poverty.” (Reported by Ibn an-Nasa’i and Hibban). Notice how the Messenger of Allah, to include the word kufr with the word poor. How can Islam encourage pauperism, while Allah has given the pleasure of His Prophet in the form of wealth, as in His word. “Did He not find you an orphan, and He will protect you? Did He not find one that is confused, then he gave the instructions. Did He not find a shortage, then He gives sufficiency. “(ADH-Dhuhaa :6-8). Holy Prophet has also praised the pious rich man as the word of the Prophet.: “The best treasure is owned by someone who is pious.” (Reported by Ahmad and al-Haakim). Islam does not advocate poverty, but seeks to improve the perspective of rich meaning, Rich according to Islam is not seen in the number of properties owned by someone, but rather a sense of satisfaction and pleasure with something that is obtained, either much or little. Wealth, in essence is in the feeling of the soul and not on what a person has. For example, Ahmad has the money ten thousand pounds. He was satisfied with his work.he was also pleased with the sustenance which God gave him. He is also a sense of airy breasts because she worked and earned money by that amount. This is called rich. Osama has the money of one million pounds. However, he did not feel satisfied with that amount of money because he needs a larger number than that. He was worried if the money is reduced. He also was not pleased with the outcome of trade which has resulted in money. He feels the need is greater than the money he had because he thought, that money should be doubled, he was not content to accept. As a result, he continues to seek additional and do not feel pleasure. Even he was worried with his future. This has included indigent, despite having a lot of property. Messenger of Allah said: “Rich is not because of the many treasures, but the so-called rich are rich people.” (Bukhari and Muslim). If you want to be rich, you should be working, then pleased with the provision that God has blessed you. Also, praise God for His provision. All this will not prevent you from looking for something more Afdhal, it’s just not to feel anxious with the property that you own. Property is increasing or decreasing the power of God and you do not have power over it, we just plan and do, while the results, receive with pleasure any circumstances. Blessed are you with what God blessed. That way, you’ll be rich someday. The main causes of fatigue and anxiety felt by the people is a sense of concern for wealth and ambition to the world searching with greedy and blind love. They felt as if the world was going to go away from them. This is a very dangerous infectious diseases. This disease has been passed to us through the media information that has been given to show us that there is a battle of wealth and money in the world. Media information is western media device information that was known to be glorifying money and cheering. This is what makes people breathless exhaustion pursue wealth for various benefits that are not get enough of. Even worse, they look for additional benefits and try to find a variety of ways regardless of the halal or haraam. In addition, they also do not pay attention to the rights of others and the poor. It is a source of disease materialistic life that knows no measure, except on the basis of wealth. They are not in a relationship except as property. As a result, people who do not own property will be underestimated and is considered worthless, even though that person has a high morality. As we said, that Islam is opposed to if the property used as the size and weight among fellow human beings.
Therefore, the Messenger of Allah willing to correct understanding about this among his companions as in the following hadith. Sahl ra said: “a man (rich) passes in front of the Messenger of Allah, then the Messenger of Allah said, ‘What do you say about this guy?” They (the companions) said,’ This man if he would apply accepted. If he gives a recommendation, he will be obeyed. And if he says he will be heard. “Sahl said, ‘Then the Prophet was silent. Then a man destitute of the Muslims passed by, then the Prophet of Allah said, ‘What do you say about this guy? “They (the companions) said,’ If people are applying for, he will not be accepted. If she gives the recommendations he had not obeyed, and if he says, he does not listen. So the Messenger of Allah said, ‘This poor man is better than the rest of this earth than the rich. “(Bukhari and others). So rich is not everything. Property owner is not the most important. Size of piety who introduced Islam to compare human beings with one another. . Do not let it flow materialistisme, make us forget for a close social relationships. Do not let the media facilities information with sparkle material, makes us breathless pursuit of the material, and do not make us sad and worried just because the material. As a result we had to forget that real wealth is in the soul before it is in the material. Please know that even if someone is rich, it is useless if it remains stricken with anxiety. Make treasure and wealth in Allah.
