In the light of the Holy Hadith
Dear brothers and sister,
There is a strong relationship between wealth and knowledge. No one can be best in the world only through wealth. One must need to learn knowledge and earn wealth to be a famous and best person in the World. Warren Buffett once said: “The more you learn, the more you earn.” That is so true.
Look at successful people like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Oprah, Mark Cuban and any other highly successful human. They are successful because they use their time right, they are successful because they are lifetime learners. They commit to learning new things every single day. Warren Buffett, one of the wealthiest humans on the planet, is famous for reading more than 5 hours every day. Bill Gates read one book per week, Mark Cuban read three hours a day. Oprah is just obsessed with books. Notice the common theme here? Successful people never stop learning.
Now let’s try to understand the differences between the famous and the best people. To be a famous person of the World you need two things, knowledge and wealth. But to be the best person of the World you have to share your knowledge and wealth with others in a humble way. Here we have to remember that, at the time of acquiring wealth or knowledge, we should compete with ourselves, not with others. Our beloved prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “By Allah, it is not poverty I fear for you, but rather I fear you will be given the wealth of the world just as it was given to those before you. You will compete for it just as they competed for it and it will destroy you just as it destroyed them.” So, success is not about the money, the fame or the big house. It’s about becoming the best version of yourself.
