In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
“Profit” in common parlance refers to benefit or gain, especially monetary. As a verb, “to profit” is to make a financial gain, but also to benefit, as in: “He greatly profited from his preparation for the exam.”
The analogy of financial benefit (or harm) to other types of benefit has also been used in the Qur’an and in the Hadith. Allah says, for instance:
O you who have believed, shall I guide you to a transaction that will save you from a painful punishment? [It is that] you believe in Allah and His Messenger and strive in the cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives. That is best for you, if you should know. He will forgive for you your sins and admit you to gardens beneath which rivers flow and pleasant dwellings in gardens of perpetual residence. That is the great attainment. (Qur’an, 61:10-12).
And the Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said:
The learned are the heirs of the prophets, and the prophets leave neither dinar nor dirham, [but instead] leave only knowledge, and he who takes [this knowledge] takes an abundant portion. (Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, and Ibn Majah).
The aim of this blog is therefore to profit, but in the Prophetic way: through knowledge. The blog aims to ease the following of the Prophetic path by providing relevant and inspiring articles, stories, discussions, and original translations.
We ask Allah for tawfiq.
