Advice of Hadhrat Mufti Mahmood Hassan Gangohi Rahmatullahi Allayhi
We survive on barkat not on salaries Everyone complains about their salaries being too low. Huge countries also are in debt. If someone passes one day in hunger and exercises sabar (patience) without expressing his need to anyone, Allah Ta’ala will bless him with one year’s halaal sustenance. That person who keeps on expressing his needs to others, his needs will continue to grow and will never finish. He will always remain troubled. One’s life passes with barkat (Allah Ta’ala’s blessings), not with salaries. If Allah Ta’ala puts barkat in a little salary, all one’s needs will be fulfilled and if Allah Ta’ala does not put barkat, then big salaries are depleted in a short period of time.
