RIZQ (sustenance) is a blessing bestowed by Allah the Almighty, which comes in all forms, said Project Head at Mindplus Education Sdn Bhd and a certified Da’ie from the Brunei Islamic Religious Council (MUIB) Muhammad Fatin Abdul Rahman bin Kifli. He made these comments while delivering his pre-dawn talk at the Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Mosque in the capital yesterday.
The pre-dawn talk was part of the Masjidku Makmur, Negara Berkat programme organised by the Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA) in collaboration with the Ministry of Finance and Economy with the support of the Prime Minister’s Office.
In the talk titled, ‘Rizq: Towards Which Direction?’ Muhammad Fatin Abdul Rahman said Islam has never forbidden Muslims from seeking wealth, yet they must abide by the laws of Allah the Almighty.
“Muslims are required to seek rizq through a lawful manner based on Al-Quran and Hadith, rather than through the methods prohibited by Allah the Almighty,” he said, adding that Muslims should express gratitude for their rizq to gain more blessings.
