The pursuit of money and commerce is important, as is remembering to offer sacrifice in the name of Allah and giving charity, people attending Friday’s sermon will hear.

Worshippers will be told that money directed towards the right sources can have compounded positive effects.

“The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the cause of Allah is like a single grain that yields seven ears [of corn], in each a hundred grains. Allah multiplies His bounty to whomsoever He pleases. And Allah is All-Generous, All-Knowing.” (2:261)

Worshippers will be told that “those who spend their wealth in the cause of Allah and do not demand gratitude or cause offence thereafter shall have their reward with their Lord. No fear shall fall upon them, nor shall they grieve.” (2:262)

Wealth can take on other forms.

Indeed, focusing on spiritual enrichment is more important than amassing financial or material wealth.

Reciting the Quran is one of the most important investments for the life of a believer.

The Prophet Mohammed said that he who reads the Quran is giving compounded blessings.

Worshippers will hear that charity given to those in need will enrich people’s lives.
