Most Important ROI in Islam


On the authority of Umar bin Al-Khattab, who said: I heard the Prophet PBUH say :

“Actions are but by intention and every man shall have but that which he intended. Thus he whose migration was for Allah and His messenger, his migration was for Allah and His messenger, and he whose migration was to achieve some worldly benefit or to take some woman in marriage, his migration was for that for which he migrated.” [Bukhari, Muslim]

The ultimate objective of  any business setup by the Muslim businessman or woman should be to get closer to Allah SWT and seek His blessings so that paradise is the end objective in the hereafter. This is done by sincerely serving mankind with the value proposition that his business is offering and remembering that the financial profits are not the end game, but are a means towards returning to Him.
