IslamQA

Not seeing any barakah in one’s wealth

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I’m a bachelor and I live with my friends in Canada. There are non-Muslims also living at our place. Ever since I’ve moved to this place I’m unable to save any of my earnings. Alhamdulillah, I earn well and donate sadaqa on a regular basis, and try to perform my prayers on time. However, I’m unable to save money since I moved here and it’s been more than 8 months. I’ve had no major expenses apart from my needs and living expenses. My non-Muslim friends always consume alcohol in the hall area. Does this reason impact on barakah or is there any other reason that I need to look into?

Bismillaah

A: A major problem is remaining unmarried and living without consulting with one’s elders. One should have a righteous and experienced elder to consult with in order to acquire the ease and goodness of life.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
