The importance of halal income

Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam ‘ala Rasulullah.
My Dear Respect Brothers And Sisters In Islam.
Charity that is given from impure earnings will not be accepted by ALLAH (سبحانه وتعالى), no matter how much is given, whereas charity given from pure earnings will be accepted by ALLAH (سبحانه وتعالى), even if equivalent to a

date! That’s why non Muslims cannot enter paradise bcs their good deeds are for show off or from Haraam sustenance so due to their lack of eemaan,  ALLAH (سبحانه وتعالى) does not guide them to know all these things.
Furthermore, there are a number of narrations that signify that earning through halal is an obligation upon every Muslim. It is because of this that Islam encourages working. The taking of a profession is encouraged because it is one of the best ways that a person can ensure earning pure sustenance.

•Umar ibn al-Khattab  رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰعنه said, “I see a man that impresses me, so I ask, ‘Does he have a profession (through which he earns money)?’ So if they say, ‘No,’ then he falls from my eyes (and I do not respect him).”
So great is the status of halal sustenance that Islam has not looked down upon manual labour. Instead, it has given it a very high place, due to the fact that manual labour is, in general, a very honest profession.
•The Prophet  صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ stated, “No one has ever eaten any food that is better than eating what his hands have earned. And indeed the Prophet of Allah, Dawud  عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم, would eat from the earnings of his hands.” [Reported by al-Bukhari (2/10) and others]
In this hadith, we are told that the most honourable way to earn money is through manual labour, for even the Prophet Dawud  عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم would earn his sustenance by making armour and selling it.
       •Furthermore, the Prophet  صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said, “The prophet Zakariyya  عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم was a carpenter.” [Reported by Muslim (# 2379) and others]
•This great Prophet of Allah, who took care of Maryam  عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم the mother of Isa  عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم used to earn his livelihood through the noble profession of carpentry.
In fact, even the Prophet of Allah, Muhammad  صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ used to earn from his own hands. Once, he  صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ stated, “ALLAH (سبحانه وتعالى) did not send any prophet except that he used to be a shepherd of sheep.”
So the companions asked, “Including you, O Messenger of Allah?”
He  صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ replied, “Yes, I used to be a shepherd for the people of Makkah, in return for some qararit (i.e., coins of copper). [Reported by al-Bukhan (2/48) and others]
The Prophet  صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ was not embarrassed or ashamed to inform his companions that he used to work as a shepherd in return for a very small amount of money (qararit). Today everyone wants to be university graduate even if through haraam bank loans #Astaghfirullah.
And ALLAH (سبحانه وتعالى) knows best.
May ALLAH (سبحانه وتعالى) forgive our ignorance and protect us from these satanic ways. Aameen.
