Qur’anic Paradigm of Personal Finance

Qur'anic Paradigm of Personal Finance

“By the means of what Allah has given you, seek the abode of the Hereafter, while not forgetting your share of this world. Be good [to others] just as Allah has been good to you, and do not try to cause corruption in the land. Indeed Allah does not like the agents of corruption.” (Qur’an 28:77)

Elements of the Qur’anic Paradigm of Personal Finance:

1. Seeking the abode of the Hereafter as the primary goal in life;

2. Utilizing all the means provided by God for the pursuit of that goal while not forgetting one’s share of this world;

3. Rendering service to fellow creatures;

4. Avoiding the transgression of bounds or “causing corruption in the land.”
