שמע ישראל ה' אלהינו ה' אחד
فمن كان يرجوا لقاء ربه فليعمل عملا صالحا ولا يشرك بعبادة ربه أحدا

Super Rich

Posted By Snow at 8/07/2011

Was Jerusalem the greatest kingdom of all time
Yet Solomon still listened to the small female ant

ربي أوزعني أن أشكر نعمتك التي أنعمت عليّ وعلى والديّ وأن أعمل صالحاً ترضاه [Q27:18-19]

Oh to be rich! Perhaps... it's nice if I can order a grand buffet for every meal time. Not worrying about my next meal. Have diamond studs in my mansion ceilings. With 10,000 maids. & wear the nicest dresses, go to elite parties. Most especially the respect. Like... If the lower castes eat in plastic plates, I will be served in crystal plates at the best table with a personal waiter. The chefs would be excited just to come up with the perfect 7-course meal for me! Yay! (◠9◠)

But... That's not the purpose of life. (T-T)
كلا بل تحبون العاجلة وتذرون الآخرة [Q75:20-21]

Still, it's not that people should be destitute. If ever there was such a rich king to aspire to, I think it could be Prophet Solomon . Allah (SWT) blessed him with the greatest kingdom of all time. الحمد لله Still, Allah (SWT) commands - اعملوا آل داود شكرا Work, o family of David, in gratitude. [Q34:13] & he worked righteousness to please Allah (SWT). And finally, he rests in peace, blessed with the mercy of Allah (SWT) - to a beautiful place of final return. سلاما سلاما
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
وما أموالكم ولا أولادكم بالتي تقربكم عندنا زلفى
إلا من آمن وعمل صالحا فأولئك لهم جزاء الضعف بما عملوا وهم في الغرفات آمنون
And it is not your wealth, nor your children that bring you nearer to Us, but only he who believes and work righteousness, these are the ones for whom there is a double reward for their deeds, and they will reside in the high dwellings (Paradise) in peace and security. [Holy Quran 34:37]
The only reason to aspire to be rich is the great service one can offer to society. Provide capital for businesses, charities and protect the people etc. Isn't it beautiful to see people whom Allah (SWT) bestowed great wealth who understand that. I think I want to be jealous of them... (◠v◠)v
لا حسد إلا في اثنتين
رجل آتاه الله مالا فسلطه على هلكته في الحق
ورجل آتاه الله حكمة فهو يقضي بها ويعلمها
Narrated Ibn Mas'ud: I heard the Prophet saying, "There is no envy except in two: a person whom Allah has given wealth and he spends it in the right way, and a person whom Allah has given wisdom and he gives his decisions accordingly and teaches it to the others." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 2 Book 24 Hadith 490]

Perhaps Solomon was amused at how the ant was protecting her people? She said "O ants, enter your dwellings that you not be crushed by Solomon and his soldiers while they perceive not." [Q27:18]

The Holy Quran use the word "ant" (نملة) and "her speech" (قولها) in the female form. So I think it's the Queen Ant. والله أعلم

After seeing how she orders & protected the people, then he prayed to Allah SWT, "My Lord, enable me to be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to do righteousness of which You approve. And admit me by Your mercy into [the ranks of] Your righteous servants." [Q27:19] سبحان الله


Welcome
Peace be upon you
