The Quran-al-Kareem clearly declares: “And Allah Ta’ala has made trade lawful and has forbidden interest.” The prohibition of interest is so severe that all the parties connected to the transaction are sinful. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is reported to have said: “Allah Ta’ala has cursed the one who takes interest, the one who gives it, the witness to the transaction and the scribe (who recorded it).

Assalaamu Alaikum! Numerous times daily we greet one another with this wonderful greeting. Unlike the hollow or even meaningless greetings of “Hi,” “Hello,” etc., Assalaamu Alaikum is a profound dua of peace and safety for the person being greeted. When one exclaims “Assalaamu Alaikum” to someone, it is as if one has assured him thus: “You are in peace and safety from me in every way whatsoever — word, deed or even thought.” Hence we spread the message of peace numerous times daily to everyone we meet.

Partaking of sehri is a sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and a means of attaining great barakah and rewards. Hazrath Anas (R.A.) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Partake of sehri for verily in sehri is much barakah (blessings)” (Sahih Bukhari. In another narration Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has stressed the partaking of sehri by proclaiming: “Sehri is entirely barakah. Hence do not omit it even if you just take a sip of water, for verily Allah Ta’ala and His angels send blessings upon those who partake of sehri” (Targheeb).

An investment that only grows — till eternity! Every person who has a rand to spare would want to invest in such an investment. Indeed, anyone who has even half a cent to spare has the opportunity to invest in the Aakhirah (Hereafter). No loss. Only profit and growth. The only condition is sincerity.
