 CHRISTMAS AND THE ECONOMIC BOOM.
Various festive seasons; Eid for Muslims, Diwali for Hindus, Christmas for Christians are celebrated according to one’s beliefs. A common cause in all festivities is shopping in order to celebrate. Just as Muslims shop at non-Muslim outlets to fulfill their general and specific needs during Eid, during Christians, Christians will also frequent Muslim owned shops to fulfill their general and specific needs.
A festive season comes with an economic boom. According to statistics, 18% of the annual revenue is attained in the festive period. Therefore, the Christmas season presents an opportunity to earn extra income.
As human beings, we are intimately affected with means and unfortunately we began to think that the means that provides for us is the provider whereas it is not. As Muslims, our Aqedah is that Allah is the provider; the festive season is merely a means. Be continues of this belief at all times. with this correct belief if we earn extra, that will lead us to make Shukur. If adverse conditions come, we make Sabr. If one believes that the means is providing and one did not do well in business, that will lead to grief and agony.
The Darul Iftaa makes Dua that Allah Ta’āla grant all our business men lots of Barakah and blessings during this festive economic season. Ameen.
Further advises to continue within the week on what to do in one’s business during this festive economic season.

CHRISTMAS AND THE ECONOMIC BOOM. PART 2
We are lining in a world of means. Working hard and exerting oneself is a means of extra income. During this festive economic season, commence business early in the morning. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said,
اللهم بارك لأمت في بكورها
Translation: O Allah, bless my Ummah in their early hours of the day.
(Sunan Tirmidhi Hadith # 1212)
The early hours are submerged in blessings. It will be noticed that the amount of work carried out in this time is more in comparison to any other time of the day.
Whenever the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) exported or imported goods, he would send the caravan in the morning. The Sahabah state that theses caravans would return with a high profit margin. (Sunan Tirmidhi)
The Darul Iftaa makes Dua that Allah Ta’āla grant all our businessmen lots of Barakah and blessings during this festive economic season. Ameen.
Further advises tomorrow and the entire week on what to do in one’s business during this festive economic season.
