Series 1: Intentions

Entrepreneurship is not just about making money.
It goes beyond that. TRUST ME.

At first, I thought that it is impossible for an ordinary people like me to achieve big dreams.
Now, I realize that BUSINESS is actually a medium to HELP. We are helping to solve other people’s problem. That’s what my Mentor Suria said.

Allah swt reminds us:

“And help each other in righteousness and piety, and help not one another in sin and transgression and remain fearing Allah. Undoubtedly, the torment of Allah is severe.”
(Al-Maidah: 2)

Let us ponder.
Any business you are in right now, you are actually helping the community.

For example:
When you are selling beauty product, you are helping people look good.
When you are selling herbs and medicines, you are helping people to cure.
When you are teaching, you are helping people to understand better.

Yes. That is business. An exchange. Money is just a medium.
Business is solving other people’s problem.
Business is helping.
Business is impacting.
And above all, business is SERVING.

Thus in business, we must always check our intention every single day.
To receive money, and SERVE.
To receive money, and HELP.
To receive money, and GIVE.

May Allah make us people with good intention to Allah.
Amin.

    Indeed, I agreed with what has written by our sister Su’aidah Salim but I’d like to advise the Muslimins to avoid doing MLM form of business. If one were to scrutiny thoroughly about this form of business one may realise that lots of cheating involved. After so many years that I have been trying to do this kind of business without success, I am sort of realised that the sales persons at the bottom rank are doing all the works and spend an enourmous of money before they could get to the top line, to earn money from the downlines. If they don’t succeed, they are merely feeding those on the top lines. In contrary, if they succed, they will in turn earning money from the sweats of the sales persons at the bottom lines. In whichever ways, the one that own this kind of business that at the most advantage position. Is this “halal”?

    I’m not good at words, but think, you should try it yourselves see whether what I’ve said here make any sense.

    I beg, for ALLAAH SWT sake, think twice before you join any MLM or PYRAMID form of business. ALHAMDULILLAAH, I did not succeed in doing such form of business.

    ALLAAHU madad.

    JazaakALLAAHU Khayraan.

    بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
