“This is from the favor of my Lord to test me whether I will be grateful or ungrateful. And whoever is grateful – his gratitude is only for [the benefit of] himself. And whoever is ungrateful – then indeed, my Lord is Free of need and Generous.” ( Surah An-Naml 27:40)
Bloomberg understood the benefits of Shariah-complaint finances ,as Sulayman ( aley selam ) understood the favours of Allah سبحانه و تعالى. The noble Prophet ( aley salam) ordered the jinn to bring him the throne of Bilqis to demostrate the greatness of the power and authority Allah سبحانه و تعالى.bestowed upon him to queen Sheba. As we all know, is Suleyman (aley selam) the only Prophet that had the abilities to reign over the jinns and mankind.
He said, “My Lord, forgive me and grant me a kingdom such as will not belong to anyone after me. Indeed, You are the Bestower ( Surah Sad 38:35)
Do we have the same understanding of Sulayman( aley salam) ?, Although we are the nation that Allah سبحانه و تعالى. favours among all nation that ever existed.
Bloomberg announced the launch of its islamic Fiance weekly newsletter.This means in simple terms that non-Islamic global investors and financial advisors are tyring to be ahead of us through analytics and trends in the market of Shariah-complaint finances. The Islamic Finance newsletter will offer a special insight of the Islamic Financial industry, which yield sales figures which have reached $ 6.6 billion in 2012, which gained over 300% compared to 2011.
We as Muslim in the west do not gratefully realise that Allah سبحانه و تعالى. has bestowed us with these benefits. Allah سبحانه و تعالى imparted us with these blessings because of the believe “Sharia” being the only law to be established, and not because it is a lucrative business as these investors preceive it to be. It is the same system that demonize, and slanders some aspects of the Sharia. The very same people are now preying on the divine favours.This is at least what Ted Merz says We believe this mix of news, views, data and analysis will help give investors insight into market movements and thus a competitive edge.”
The Islamic Fiance market is dynamic and fast moving, are we dynamic and fast-moving too? . It is worthwhile raising the question, and conveying these massive financial shifts to the general muslim population within UK’s strong consumer buying power.This leads to only one conclusion, It is up to us collectively to take the challenge and be ahead of everyone when it comes to the Sharia in all situations and aspects.
