Summary of talk by Mufti Tariq Masood DB:

Atheism and liberalism are on the rise but deendar (religious) people will dominate in the future because of two reasons:

They tend to have more barakah in their offspring.

They tend to have more barakah in their livelihood because they prefer tijarat (businesses) over mulazimat (service careers).

Also, atheism will not spread in the long term because it is based on the denial of God which is an irrational belief, and monotheism will spread because it is the most rational belief.

Is this really the case?

Imams Sa’id ibn Mansur and Ibrahim Al-Harby (rahimahumallah) have recorded the following narration with a reliable chain from the Tabi’i; Nu’aym ibn ‘Abdir Rahman that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:

Engage in trade, for nine tenths of sustenance is found therein

(see Takhrijul Ihya of ‘Allamah ‘Iraqi, Hadith: 1588 & Sharhul Ihya, vol.5 pg.416)


But it is not feasible for everyone to quit what they are doing and start their own business or trade. There are many people who quit their jobs to start business and then regret it later on.

We just end up copying trade and also open it right next to each other.

In today's world, your service could also be regarded as trade. You are basically charging your company for providing your expertise and time.

Here at the local tablighi markaz, most of the regular attendees are self employed as small business owners, with some artisans, laborers, and a very small number actively pursuing a career. Even in our middle class neighborhood, there are more people who engage in business than other forms of livelihood.

I can't say what people's preferences are, but I can definitely say most people are not self employed.

In this sense every service except slavery or volunteer work would be regarded as trade in this world and the past.

tbh it just depends where you are living in the world. It's easy to start up a small business in a country where informal economy is prevalent and probably the better option especially if there is no set minimum wage for employees. On the other hand, its not easy in the UK and most people are better off slogging 9-5 or working 12 hour shifts with employee rights on your side.
