Cash Or Credit?

Moulana  Ya’qub  Nanotwi  (rahimahullāh)  had  said,  “Experience  has  proven  that whenever  cash  and  credit  come  together,  every  person  prefers  the  cash  and  will not  be  happy  with  credit.  Understand  that  the  knowledge  of  Deen  and  the sciences  of  the  Aakhirah  are  like  credit  (the  benefits  of  which  will  be  seen  in  the next  world),  whereas  worldly  sciences  can  be  likened  to  cash.  When  these  two come  together,  people  will  always  incline  more  towards  cash,  while  the knowledge  of  Deen  and  Aakhirah  will  take  second  place,  rather  it  will  no  more remain  the  primary  objective.” 

Moulana  Ashraf  Ali  Thanwi  ( rahimahullāh )  commented  on this,  “SubhaanAllah,  what  a  solid  and  far-sighted  answer.  This  conclusion  can  only be  the  effect  of  the  noor  (celestial  splendor  and  illumination)  of  imaan  which  Allah has  blessed  their  hearts  with,  by  the  virtue  of  the  company  of  the  pious.” (Tuhfatul  Ulama  pg.116)
