When one looks at the people of the past; he would find that they used to work hard and earn from the sweat of their brow. Their earning was clean and their businesses were Shariah compliant. As a result, the money they earned was clean and a lot of goodness came out of it. Their children were obedient and their marriages were successful. On the contrary, in today’s times, we do not see this barkat in our lives. One reason for the barkat being lost is that we do things in haste. We want things to materialize on the turn. Hence we are not scrupulous of the avenues we earn and the avenues we spend. Therefore just as it comes quick, it goes quick. We don’t see the production in the earnings as was seen by the people of the past.
