What is Rizq? What do I need to work for? What happens if I don’t work? Can I increase my Rizq, especially material wealth by own effort? What if I take shortcuts with respect to permitted and prohibited means?
One of the characteristics of modern life seems to be a breakdown of family life, the foundation of which is a happy and healthy marriage. This has vast implications on individuals and society in terms of hardship, lack of social concern and responsibility and a culture that promotes selfishness and self-satisfaction at all costs. This vicious circle propagates more destruction of marriages and the sad story grows. This short booklet is an attempt to share my learning and understanding of the main issues in a marriage and a look at what it takes to make a marriage a source of great joy and fulfillment in this life. I hope that those who read it will benefit from it and will live happy, productive and satisfactory lives. The book is focused at Muslims but others can also benefit.
It has been said that true bankruptcy is a full belly and an empty soul. Religion must be a matter of conscious choice. Not a matter of accidental birth. Because on it depends on our peace of mind, how we view the world, our relationships with others, what choices we make and the results of those choices in this life and the Hereafter.

There is a distinct difference between how one whose core faith is that Muhammad(Peace be upon him) was the Messenger of Allah and how someone who does not hold this belief, writes about him. This book, however, is not simply an analysis of history. It is a labor of love and reverence while being analytical and objective. It is an attempt by one who not only believes that Muhammad(Peace be upon him) was the best leader that ever existed but who believes in him and his message and wants to share it. The life of Muhammad(Peace be upon him) the Messenger of Allah is rich and full of lessons.
This is not a book of Tafseer but a book inviting us to act on the instructions that Allah (SWT) gave us to live in this world such that it will enable us to create a society that is beautiful for anyone who lives in it – Muslim or not. These are a series of 6 – Khutbas given using the Ayaat of Sura Al Hujuraat which define for us the Akhlaaq of the Ummati of Rasoolullah (SAS). That is why I have named the book as such. I ask Allah (SWT) to enable us to act on what He ordered us to do and what His Nabi (SAS) demonstrated for us. For if the one who has no map is lost, there is an excuse but if the one who was given and map and a guide is still lost, then what is the remedy?
