Shariah Compliant Business Campaign

(SCBC)

 

A believer’s focus in all aspects of life is on accountability in the court of Allah. It is this consciousness that keeps a believer straight and upright in his religious obligations. Rasulullah Sallallāhu Alayhi Wasallam is reported to have mentioned:

 

لا تزول قدما ابن آدم يوم القيامة من عند ربه حتى يسأل عن خمس عن عمره فيما أفناه وعن شبابه فيما أبلاه وعـن ماله من أين أكتسبه وفيـم أنفقه وما عمـل فيما علم ) وفي لفظ من حديث أبي برزة الأسلمي ( لا تزول قدما عبد يوم القيامة حتى يسأل عن عمره فيما أفناه وعن علمه فيم فعل وعن ماله من أين اكتسبه وفيم أنفقه وعن جسمه فيم أبلاه

 

“The two feet of the son of Adam will not move from near his Lord on the Day of Judgment until he is asked about five (matters):

 

1. About his life – how he spent it;

2. About his youth – how he took care of it;

3. About his wealth – how he earned it; and

4. Where he spent it; and

5. About that which he acted upon from the knowledge he acquired.” (Tirmidhi)

 

It is clear from the Hadith that monetary issues are a crucial determination for a person’s eternal success or destruction. The Darul Iftaa has thus embarked on a Shariah Compliant Business Campaign to educate people on Shariah Compliancy in monetary issues. Our approach is a positive one in which we:

 

  • Encourage people through virtues of business in light of the Quran and Ahadith and inspirational incidents.
  • Identify unislamic practices in the business sector and advise on the Shariah alternative.
  • Empower people with a daily email on one business related issue.
  • Mediate/Arbitrate in Commercial related disputes and issue a settlement/decree respectively according to Shariah.
  • Shariah auditing on Business.

 

Alhamdulillah, the Darul Iftaa has conducted 10 Business Campaigns with an average of 700 people per session. The campaign has generated a huge interest in people and created a realization of Shariah Compliance in monetary issues.

طلب كسب الحلال فريضة بعد الفريضة

“Seeking of Halal sustenance is an obligation after an obligation” (Mishkaat)
