The Muslim Wealth Portal- Halal and Ethical Finance
The Muslim Wealth Portal (Amwal.uk) is the UK’s online directory for consumers & businesses searching for Halal Finance. We believe everyone is entitled to financial flexibility hence why we only signpost to ethical options and share news impacting your wealth. We are an independent non-commercial entity with the sole purpose of raising awareness of Islamic Finance organisations operating in the UK.
Disclaimer: You should verify the listed organisations/individuals on the Amwal.uk site’s Sharia standards and consult an Islamic Scholar well-versed in Halal Finance according to Al-Qur’an and sunnah.
We believe it’s essential for Muslim people in the UK to know where to search for Halal finance and wealth management options. This allows people to choose providers directly or appoint a professional representative to offer advice and recommend a suitable solution. Hence why we list both. As wealth is not limited to earning and investing, we’ve also got a Lifestyle section, to signpost you on ways to spend ethically!
Halal Finance is open to everyone due of its ethics of shared risk, fairness and transparency. So, if you’re a consumer or business looking for Halal Pensions, Islamic Banks, Mortgage Alternatives and Sharia Investments, visit our directory and news website. Isn’t it time you put faith back into your wealth?
Disclaimer: You should verify the listed organisations/individuals on the Amwal.uk site’s Sharia standards and consult an Islamic Scholar well-versed in Halal Finance according to Al-Qur’an and sunnah, before any decision/ entering any transaction.
Please be reminded to check with appropriate certification bodies if the individual or organisation you are engaging has relevant authorisation or accreditation to operate in the UK. Amwal do not offer financial advice or trade any services so the FCA does not regulate them. You may wish to seek independent financial advice before making any decisions or entering into contracts. Amwal and thurrockmuslims.com do not endorse individuals or organisations featured on the Amwal site; they are listed for information only (no charge or pay for links).

May Allah enable us to earn and spend Halal wealth in a Halal manner according to Shariah, and may Allah give us barakah and protect us from all Haram and Riba and major sins. wasallallahu ala nabiyina Muhammad. Amin

This is my second letter to you.
Hey I know its been a while! Thanks for your patience though.
So you tried getting rich, but failed… or maybe you made it.
So you tried fame, and maybe you got it, but at times, with fame, comes shame…some love you, some don’t…
So you tried getting a degree, but you didn’t quite hack it… or maybe you did, and then a bachelors wasn’t enough, so you got a masters, then a phd, and now you’re very intelligent… well at least you think you are… : )
So can you tell me why you were born the day you were? Can you tell the day you will pass away? Can you tell me what colour my bedroom floor is? Can you?
Nope. Because you can’t see it. But that doesn’t mean you were not born on the day you were, or that you won’t pass away one day, or that my bedroom floor is colourless…
Although you cannot be an eye-witness on many an occasion, nor can you physically witness everything that exists or happens, you do agree with me that these things are true because they have signs which point to their reality.
You know you were born that day, because you have a birth certificate to prove it. You know you will die one day, because you see people losing their lives everyday. You know my bedroom floor has a colour, otherwise it wouldn’t be a normal floor.
So I’m sure you’d agree, you don’t always have to see things plainly in order to ascertain their existence. Yet there are signs which indicate they exist.
The universe and all within it points to the existence of a Supreme Creator.
And the Supreme Creator,is unique, there is no similitude to Allah. Allah is The Supreme One True God, The Uncreated Lord of the universe and all within it, the One who created everything in pairs as a sign to remind us of His Oneness, and His right to be worshipped alone. He is The Rich, The Free of all needs, The Most High. The Self-Sustaining, The Self-Existing, The Universal Witness… The Ever-Living, The Eternal, The One who is not born, nor does He die. He is the First and the Last. The Originator..
And we will return to Him…everything will perish except Him…
Because man is a mere fragile created being…
And our purpose on earth is to establish the remembrance of The Creator, Allah.
Allah is our Provider, our Sustainer, our Helper, our Master, our Lord, our Protector.
We need Him. And we need to worship Him, to fulfil our purpose, because He deserves exclusive worship.
So then, we now know that the purpose in life is to worship Allah (The One True God), Alone.
You see, Allah doesn’t need us to worship Him. He is the Owner of power. Allah is forever Self-Sufficeint. He is not bound by time and location, for He created these. Allah tells us in the Qur’an that He is The Rich, Free of all needs and wants, The Praiseworthy.
He did not need us when we were non-existent, He doesn’t need us now, and He will never need us.
Allah doesn’t need us to worship Him, rather He deserves our worship… and we need Him.. we depend on Him.. He is our Provider, our Protector, our Creator, our Lord.
and we NEED to worship Him… because that is the purpose for which we were created.
Whether we worship Him or not, it does not detract or add to His Might and Power whatsoever, Allah is the All-Powerful, the unyielding in strength. Allah possesses the ultimate power, so what are we?… we have to inevitably submit to Him. We have no other refuge, only Allah grants true security.
So won’t we run back to Him?
and with that, I’m going to call it a day, my friend.
With love and peace,
p.s. guess you’re wondering, how do we worship Allah? Follow our blog, and you’ll find out, God willing : )
