9-   Provide you with lawful sustenance:

Al-Fudhayl, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said, “When Allaah The Almighty loves a slave, He provides him with lawful sustenance.”

Today, this is an immense blessing, because many people are not keen on eating from lawful sources, as the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “A time will come when one will not care how he gains his money, legally or illegally.” [Al-Bukhaari]

The problem is that the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “A body that thrives on ill-gotten gains deserves to be food for Hell.” [At-Tirmithi] [Al-Albaani: Saheeh]

Consuming lawful earnings endows one with insight, acumen and uprightness of the heart. In such a case, one’s deeds will be more likely to be accepted by Allaah The Almighty, as He is good and accepts only what is good.
