|Are You Lucky?
Rasul Allah (S) said: “How lucky is that man who adopts humbleness without having scarcity, who considers himself inferior without having to beg for anything, who spends his own earned money in the right causes without disobeying Allah, who is kind to those having little means, and who remains in the company of learned men.” [Tibrani]
In this hadith we are told who an enviable person is:
1. A person who is humble despite having that which makes people proud.
Having wealth does not make one lucky; but having earned it honestly, by one’s own hands and, moreover, having spent it on those things which earn Allah’s pleasure, while obedient to Allah (subhana wa ta’ala), are what entitles one to be counted among the lucky. The Wealth that is accompanied by arrogance and ignorance (ignorance of what will earn Allah’s pleasure), is extremely unlucky.
Can you count yourself lucky?
