By Sheikh Abdul-Bari ibn Awwadh Ath-Thubaiti - 03 Rajab 1435

His Eminence Sheikh Abdul-Bari ibn Awwadh Ath-Thubaiti, may Allah preserve him, delivered the Friday khutbah entitled “The Divine Wisdom behind Poverty and Wealth”, in which he talked about poverty and wealth, stating that Allah has allotted provision to his servants and has raised some of them in rank above others. Then he explained that poverty and wealth are a test from Allah, Exalted be He, to His servants. He also mentioned several qualities that the poor should have, highlighting the favourable status of the poor person who shows patience in the sight of Allah, Majesty and Glory be to Him. He concluded the khutbah by referring to the negative effects of poverty on society and the ways in which poverty can be confronted.

Praise be to Allah. Praise be to Allah, Who has made His servants fluctuate between wealth and poverty.

I advise you and advise myself to fear Allah. Allah, Exalted be He, says:
"O you who believe! Fear Allah (by doing all that He has ordered and by abstaining from all that He has forbidden) as He should be feared. [Obey Him, be thankful to Him, and remember Him always], and die not except in a state of Islam [as Muslims (with complete submission to Allah)]." (Al ‘Imran: 102)

Poverty and wealth are a test from Allah, Exalted be He, to His servants. He gives in abundance to some in order to see whether they will praise and thank Him or will behave arrogantly and transgress all boundaries. He also straitens the provision for others and withholds from them some of the delights of this world to see whether they will show patience and contentment or show annoyance and dissatisfaction. Allah, Exalted be He, says:

"... and We shall make a trial of you with evil and with good. And to Us you will be returned." (Al-Anbiya’: 35) read more

DUA (prayer)


"I depart with Allah's name, relying on Him. It is Allah who saves us from sins with His guidance (the ability to do so)." (Tirmidhi)

It is stated in the Hadith that if a person recites the above Dua and departs then there is an (unseen) procalamation that his need will be fullfilled and that he will be protected from any harm or injury. On hearing this Dua, the Satan goes away from the place and refrains from troubling the reciting person.
