Hadith Explanation

Only One Tenth from the Sewers

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “If a man purchases a cloth with ten dirhams and if one dirham out of them is unlawful, his prayer will not be accepted till a portion of that cloth remains on his body.” [Ihya Ulum Id-Din by Imam Ghazali]

Ill-gotten money is like water from the sewerage. If you are given a glass of water to drink, of which nine out of ten parts are pure distilled water and only one tenth of which is water from the sewers, would you drink it?

Don’t let ill-gotten money contaminate any of your lawfully earned money. Don’t let it stand between you and the acceptance of your prayers.
