Muhammad teachings about Business

In Islam, trade has always been recognized as an important aspect of human life. Before revelation came to him, Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him (p), himself earned living as a trader.

His integrity and veracity were quickly noticed by his employer, Khadija, who later proposed and was married to him. It was also a result of his honest and noble character that he became known as “al-Amin” or “the Trustworthy” amongst his peers.

Honorable behavior in all aspects of life, including trade, necessarily affects your personal life and society at large, as was the example of the Prophet (p). It is his example of honesty that Muslims should follow in their day-to-day transactions.
