Life and wealth of a Muslim
Surah ‘An-Nisaaa’ (The Women) – Chapter – 4)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
29. O ye who believe! Squander not your wealth among yourselves in vanity, except it be a trade by mutual consent. And kill not one another. Lo! Allah is ever Merciful unto you.
30. Whoso doeth that through aggression and injustice, we shall cast him into Fire. And that is ever easy for Allah.
29. Yaaa-‘ayyu-hallaziina ‘aa-manuu laa ta’-kuluuu ‘amwaa-lakum- baynakum- bil-baatili ‘illaaa ‘an-takuuna tijaaratan ‘an-taraazim-minkum wa laa taq-tuluu ‘anfusakum ‘InnAllaaha kaana bikum Rahiimaa.
30. Wa many-yaf-al zaalika ‘udwaananw-wa zulman- fa-sawfa nusliihi Naaraa. Wa kaana zaalika ‘alAllaahi yasiiraa.
It has been commanded to the believers after describing the matrimonial laws and punishments of their disobedience that the people should not squander others’ wealth in vanity, i.e. they should not plunder wealth of other people unjust by telling a lie, treachery, theft or plundering and lottery etc. However, if you trade by mutual consent or participate in any business, then it is lawful for you to take the wealth of one another by mutual willingness.
Second order, in this regard is “And kill not one another.” Injustice murder of any other Muslim brother is unlawful.
Then it has been described that “Allah is ever Merciful unto you” Who reveals such commandments, due to which neither any individual can squander the wealth of any other person in vanity, and nor he can kill someone unlawfully. These entire Instructions are for your goodness only.
The person, who commits against these orders of Allah Almighty, that is to say; if he/she either squanders the wealth of others in vanity, by using force or tyranny, or kills someone, then certainly his/her abode is Hell. It is not difficult for Allah Almighty to throw the tyrants in the Fire of Hell, but it is very easy and simple for Him. Therefore, in view of the above, you should abstain from tyrannizing someone because we are Muslims. If we shall tyrannize any person, we would be thrown into the Hell.
In addition, we should keep in view that Allah Almighty is Creator and Master of the entire creatures. No power can stop Him from doing justice and punishing the evildoers and nor He shell favor someone improperly, nor will He use force unlawful against anyone.
