Shaykh Abdul-Aziz Ibn Bāz:
We have all heard this blessed seminar that was undertaken by some virtuous people in relation to business in Islam. They did well and provided useful information – may Allah ﷻ multiply their reward and grant them goodness, and may He increase our knowledge, guidance, and success, and benefit us all with what we have learned and heard.
As you have heard, business is of great importance and has been recommended in Islam. Traders who adhere to what Allāh has enjoined and avoid what He has prohibited are praised. Business is one of the most important activities of Muslims, one of the most important ways of earning a living. It is the work of the Muhājirīn. When the Muslims migrated from Mecca – and elsewhere, to Medina at the time of the Prophet ﷺ they engaged in trade whilst the Ansār engaged in agriculture, then the Prophet ﷺ united the Muhājirīn and the Ansār. the Ansār said, “We will provide you with provisions and share the fruit with you.”
