Transcript of Contentment vs. Greed

Contentment vs. Greed Contentment means to be satisfied with what we have and not constantly want more or even what others have. It is okay to work hard to gain more blessings of Allah but not with a sense of unhappiness and dissatisfaction and greed for more. Contentment is called Rida/Qannah in Arabic and Greed is called "Hirs" is Arabic. Contentment Greed Examples of being Greedy are: Buying the thing you always wanted (finally have enough money) rather that giving it to the poor if you find something on the ground and you dont make the effort to find out who it belongs to "Finders Keepers"
"Then we return to him the lowest of the low," (Quran Surah Teen 95.5)

This ayat explains the purpose of being content and giving charity. In this ayat, Allah explains how it will not matter at the end of the day on how much we earned because on the day of judgement we will return to Allah from where we came from explaining the part about "lowest of the low." Examples from the Quran Greed is the desire to posses more than we need "And let not thy hand be chained to thy neck nor open it with a complete opening, lest thou sit down rebuked, denuded" (Quran 17:29).
In this ayat is in refferance to the "slaves" of Allah and how we should have moderation when giving to the poor Seconed Ayat: How to cure greed Imam as-Sadiq (a') said to his companion Abu Basir " When you feel greed for the world, remember death and your loneliness in the grave. Remember how, in the grave the worms and insects will eat your flesh and how you will be cut off from them Another way to cure greed is ... -share what we have with others

-never to hoard things

-it is okay to keep some for a "rainy" day however in moderation

-give away to others most of what is surplus and not needed by us conclusion Finally the only type of greed that Islam does encourage is the greed for knowledge. Rasulullah (s) has said that To greedy people are never satisfied; those greedy for wealth. As muslims we should always be "greedy" for knowledge in our every day lives, to help get us closer to our lord as well as prepares us for the next world, which is our permanent home. Last Ayat "Nay, here are Signs self-evident in the hearts of those endowed with knowledge: and none but the unjust reject Our Signs "

-Hoarding things for yourself and not sharing it with others Seconed Ayat

"Woe to every slanderer and backbiter. Who has gathered wealth and counted it. He presumes that his money will make him immortal." [Surah al-Humazah, 1-3] In this ayat Allah is referring to the greedy people and how they are living in thier own fantasy world and think that money and wealth will take them far in life and allow them to remain immortal forever. Last Ayat "And know that your possessions and your children are but a trial (fitnah) and that surely with Allah is a mighty reward." [Surah al-Anfal, 28]
This ayat is explaining how every material possession is only a test and a trial. To make this test even more difficult, the value of wealth is raised high above most other worldly goods. Almost every person has a strong craving for wealth.
