The major portion of the articles in Islamic Voice, March 2024 is devoted to Ramalan in depth. Even children also learn the Ramalan from A to Z in a brief time. The articles are superb by many experts in Al-Quran. Alhamdulillah.

“It is Not a Sin to Be Rich”
Tahsin Ahmed’s article “It is Not a Sin to Be Rich” is very well written. Islam is mis-interpreted by many to cover up their lethargic attitude and lack of urge to struggle for improving their standard of living. Common statements made are: “we don’t have to run for worldly gains”, “we shall not be greedy”, “Islam teaches us contentedness”.

I wish the author had quoted the following Hadees too:
Narrated by Amir bin Sad bin Abi Waqqas that his father who was wealthy and had no inheritors except his daughter became seriously ill and asked Prophet Muhammad (saw) whether he should give two-thirds of his property in charity. The Prophet said ‘No’. When asked whether half should be given as charity, the Prophet said ‘No’ and then added: “One-third, and even one-third is much. You would better leave your inheritors wealthy rather than leaving them poor, begging others.” (Sahih Bukhari).

A very tricky topic which has been dealt with wisely. Read the article twice. It’s innovative interpretations and explanations fully support the revolutionary slogan:
“Islam is our strength, let us not make it our weakness”. Congratulations to the author.

I read with interest the article “It is Not a Sin to Be Rich” in the March 2024 issue of IV. A wonderful and a very engaging article. The author has so beautifully articulated
the existing misconceptions in our society, especially in the “Money and Essential needs” section.

Tahsin Ahmed’s article “It is Not a Sin to Be Rich” is really a good eye opener. Moreover, this is the right time that the rich of the community should take up responsibility and try to lift the community economically. The rich should develop a sense of responsibility and should do their part.
