- Islam is a faith which expects total loyalty, especially in cases when a person finds himself at a crossroads decision
- This is especially challenging when the choice is between faith and family, or faith and wealth
- God discusses this in the Qur'an, 9:24
- Islam doesn't say family isn't to be loved, or wealth shouldn't be appreciated, rather it discusses the choice to be made when they are a pressure against your faith
- You cannot say 'it is family' so I had no choice
- Examples during the Prophets life
- The choice between Islam, and creating wealth in this lifetime
- Means of income should be halal and legitimate
- The story of the 6th Imam, and his trial of financial struggles, turning away wealth that he felt was not morally gained
