Answer:

 

Bohra wajebat increase wealth

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, Allah and His Messenger (saws) have guided and encouraged the believers who are blessed with abundant bounties to share their wealth with their less fortunate brothers and sisters, thus seeking the Pleasure, Good-Will and Reward only from their Lord Most Gracious. If one spends of ones wealth in charity for any other reason than to earn the Pleasure and Good Will of their Lord, he will have no reward for his charity in the Presence of his Supreme Lord.

 

Hadith Qudsi 6

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: The first of people against whom Judgment will be pronounced on the Day of Resurrection will be a man who died a martyr. He will be brought and Allah will make known to him His favours and he will recognize them. [The Almighty] will say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I fought for You until I died a martyr. Allah will say: You have lied - you did but fight that it might be said [of you]: He is courageous. And so it was said. Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire.

[Another] will be a man who has studied [religious] knowledge and has taught it and who used to recite the Quran. He will be brought and Allah will make known to him His favours and he will recognize them. [The Almighty] will say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I studied [religious] knowledge and I taught it and I recited the Quran for Your sake. Allah will say: You have lied - you did but study [religious] knowledge that it might be said [of you]: He is learned. And you recited the Quran that it might be said [of you]: He is a reciter. And so it was said. Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire. [Another] will be a man whom Allah had made rich and to whom He had given all kinds of wealth. He will be brought and Allah will make known to him His favours and he will recognize them. [The Almighty] will say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I left no path [untrodden] in which You like money to be spent without spending in it for Your sake. Allah will say: You have lied - you did but do so that it might be said [of you]: He is open-handed. And so it was said. Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire.


 

Your Question: i wiuld like to ask,that if we give more wajebat ,will my bussiness improve more n give me more profit. 

Dear and Beloved Brother, if one spends of ones wealth on the poor and the needy in Zakat or Sadaqaat only (and only) for the Sake of Allah Subhanah, seeking no material or worldly gain whatsoever, it is expected that the Lord will accept his worship and deeds and charity and bestow upon him an unending reward in this world and the Hereafter.

 

Allah says in the Glorious Quran, Chapter 2, Surah Baqarah, verse 261

The charity of those who expend their wealth in the Way of Allah may be likened to a grain of corn, which produces seven ears and each ear yields a hundred grains. Likewise Allah develops manifold the charity of anyone He pleases, for He is All-Embracing, All-Wise.

 

Allah Says in the Glorious Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 60:

60 Alms are for the poor, the needy, and those employed to administer the (funds), for those whose hearts have been (recently) reconciled (to the Truth), for those in bondage and in debt, in the Cause of Allah, and for the wayfarer: (thus is it) ordained by Allah, and Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom.

 

Allah says in the Glorious Quran, Chapter 2, Surah Baqarah, verse 254:

O you who believe, spend of the wealth We have bestowed upon you (in Allah's way), before the Day comes when there shall be no buying and no selling; when neither friendship nor intercession will be of any avail.

 

Your Question: i wiuld like to ask,that if we give more wajebat ,will my bussiness improve more n give me more profit. 

Dear and Beloved Brother, some unscrupulous sect leaders and self-appointed priests and holy men have invented terms like wajebaat, sabeel, nazrul-maqaam, najwa, salaami, etc. to enrich themselves and devour the hard-earned wealth of others by illegal means. Allah is our witness brother, such payments to these unscrupulous and supposed holy men might earn you some hadeeyat (titles of this world!), but they will hold absolutely no weight in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.

 

Allah Subhanah has sufficiently warned the believers against such illegal priests and holy men in His Glorious Quran:

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verses 34-35 :

O you who believe! There are indeed many among the priests and the holy men who devour the wealth of others by evil means, and debar the people from the Way of Allah. Give them the good news of a painful torment, who hoard up gold and silver and do not expend these in the Way of Allah. The Day shall surely come when the same gold and silver shall be heated in the fire of Hell, and with it will be branded their foreheads, their bodies and their backs. (And it will be said): Here is that treasure you had hoarded up for yourselves! Taste now the evil of your hoarded treasure!

Leave alone gaining an increase in ones business or profits, there are umpteen examples of these unscrupulous holy men collecting millions in wajebaat and funds from their followers, and when one amongst them lost his wealth, these same holy men who bestowed hadeeyats and titles of honor on him, refused to even recognize and look at him again!

 

Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, if one shares ones wealth to help the poor and the needy with the intention to earn the Pleasure of your Lord Creator, indeed He will bestow an unending reward upon you in this world and the Hereafter; but if one spends of ones wealth to enrich the coffers of some unscrupulous and greedy holy men seeking their pleasure and/or some material or worldly gain, Allah is our witness, he will be nothing but a loser in this world and the Hereafter.

 

If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.



Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

Burhan
