Taming the Trolley: Part 1

As we approach the end of the year, we find ourselves in a situation where the environment will force us to spend even though we might not be big spenders. Although spending is part of life and we can argue that what’s the point of earning if we can’t spend, it is necessary to be careful and mindful when spending. With Black Friday just a few days away and year-end holidays around the corner, this week we will be discussing a few tips and advices regarding spending.

1. Understanding the Difference Between a ‘Need’ and a ‘Want’.
Differentiating between wants and needs can be difficult for many people, and if you can’t tell the difference, it may hold you back and prevent you from learning how to save money and live a financially sound life.

Simply put, a need is that which you cannot do without or its absence will make life difficult. A want is that which its absence will not a make a major difference in your life.

Some items are needs, but many of the things we buy are actually wants. And, confusing wants with needs may be causing you a lot of financial stress. read more

Sayyadina Nu'maan bin Bashir (Radhiyallahu 'Anhu) says: "Are you not in the luxuries of eating and drinking Whereas I have seen Rasulullah (Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam) not having ordinary type of dates to full his stomach".

Commentary: The Sahaabi's intention was to persuade one to follow the simple life of Sayyidma Rasulullah (Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam) and that one lives in this world for only a short period. When in the Hadith it is denied that Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam) did not have ordinary dates to fill his stomach than what about bread and curry?

I just read a report that stated that last year 4,153,237 people got married...

I don't want to start any trouble, but shouldn't that be an even number?
