Is it Halal?

So you have been visiting the blog. Reading up on all the cool things that can happen when you go into business for yourself. But you may have some questions. For starters if you adhere to the Islamic faith you may be wondering if this business is Halal (lawful). I am here to tell you that it is indeed halal. But don’t take my word for it. Just take a look at all the Muslims couple who have reached a substantial level in the business.

All of them can be classified as “Practicing”. They appear to be modestly dressed and while presenting themselves they mentioned how they did not have to compromise on their principles in order to do the business. What’s more the education system that is setup to teach and train fledgling IBOs to make it big in the business reaffirm guiding principles that we find in Islam. Principles we may have forgotten but can be reminded of in this business. Principles like integrity, honesty and self discipline.

Its no wonder that when we apply these principles in our lives we can inspire others. An often repeated example in the annals of Islamic history is the spread of Islam in far off regions like Malaysia and Indonesia. This was done through Arab traders coming to their shores with their wares. Offering a fair price and engaging in honest trade. So impressed were the locals that they soon adopted the religion of these visitors. So in essence we see that we are reviving an old tradition of ours. What’s more there is barkath (blessing, bounty) in trade. Our prophet travelled to Syria to trade on behalf of Khatidja.

What’s more there is dignity in being financial free. Just look around the blog. A new header has been put up. The viewer is encouraged to break the shackles of mediocrity. The importance of being financially independent is further enforced by a hadiths proclaiming how the servant of Allah may attain paradise if he doesn’t ask others.

Once again I implore you. If you are struggling financially. Contact me. My team and I can help.
