Assalaamoualaikum Ya Sayyidi Mawlana Sheikh Nazim, Sayyidi Mawlana Sheikh Hisham and all Respected Shuyukhs.
May Allah give you very long life and good health and we always stay under your guidance.
Dear Sheikh, my friend who is also a mureed and I are from [private]; we intend to start a business venture in kitchenware (still to be finalised) and we seek your permission and blessings; this will be our first business. Also, if possible, can you please advise us on important Islamic business ethics that we should remember?
Please accept my apologies for my bad adab.
Amin. You have permission and may Allah bless you in your endeavors. Support your business’s success through strict honesty in all transactions, paying employees before their sweat is dry, remitting dues in full on time including zakatul mal, and helping the poor.
