6 Ways to Increase Your Income in Islam

In addition to starting a business, launching a start-up, getting a job or side hustle and investing, Islamic teachings tell us that Allah will grant us further income in quantity and quality by the following acts:

1. Trust in Allah

“If you would trust in Allah as He truly should be trusted, He would surely provide for you as He provides for the birds.” [Tirmidhi]

2. Prayers

“O son of Adam! Take time out to constantly worship me, I will fill your heart with contentment, and remove your poverty.” [Tirmidhi]

3. Charity

Allah said: “Spend in charity, O son of Adam, and I will spend on you.” [Bukhari]

4. Honesty and fairness in business

“If counterparties are truthful (to one another), and honest in explaining (the defects of an item), then they will be blessed in their transaction.” [Muslim]

5. Having children

“And do not take the life of your children for fear of poverty. We provide for them and for you. Indeed, their killing is a great sin.” [Qur’an 17:31]

6. Keeping ties with family

“Whoever would like his provision to be abundant and his lifespan to be extended, let him uphold his ties of kinship.” [Bukhari]
