Is collecting/saving money is bad what does our Islam says about it? I want to know your thoughts on: 1. Collecting/saving money to fulfil desires(eg: buying a book, which is in my case because I love reading and to gain knowledge or for eg: planning to buy a car) 2. Collecting/saving money for future purpose or emergency use 3.Is it okay to collect money to spend it in the way of Allah(SWT).
There’s no problem in saving and wanting to gain wealth as long as it’s done in a halal way and you pay the due zakat, however this must not overtake your life and religious commitments. You must strike a balance between deen and dunya while giving priority to deen.
