Fix a Budget

by Abu Abdullah Ibne Ismail

A simple but effective strategy aimed at increasing our profit in the hereafter:

“If we ponder upon how we spend in the path of Allah we will come to the conclusion that the majority of the time we only spend when someone asks us for a donation. If no-one was to come to collect donations from us we would probably not spend even a single penny.

The way to counter this is to seek out reliable avenues in which to spend and fix a certain percentage of our earnings to utilise as Lillah. By fixing a percentage we will make sure that we have a regular budget which we spend to acquire the pleasure of Allah.”
