Extravagant lifestyle

Jan 30, 2015, 9:58 AM | Article By: Alieu Jobe

When someone is told that he or she is living an extravangant lifestyle, then that particular person should sit and think again.

Living such a lifestyle does not make any sense at all because it is not only wrong, but also uncalled for.

There are hundreds of people that are in need of help, and yet others are wasting a lot of resources unnecessarily.

If the Almighty “ALLAH” blesses someone with abundance of wealth, He is expecting that person to give a helping hand to others that are in need of it.

Because by doing so, you are not only doing good to yourself, but to the society as a whole and, I believe, that is something to be proud of.

We have seen some people that have everything at their disposal, yet they are very greedy and wanting.

That should not be the case, because God has given them something that others do not have; yet they do not want to give other people the chance to also attain something that will help them and their families. What a heartless world!

When you visit some areas in the country, you will notice that there are people and some families that are going through difficult times, trying to feed themselves and paying rent, while most of these people have family members that are in a good financial shape, but are not given a helping hand to ease some of their burdens.

These affluent family members would take huge amounts of money and give it to a girlfriend or mistress to go and do shopping, when relatives are in dire need of assistance.

People should start changing their attitude, for everyone to live a dignified and decent life. Unnecessary wasting of resources won’t do any good to us; rather it would do other people around us harm.

Try to give a helping hand to people in need of help, and God would continue to bless you and you will never lack anything.

It is always good to help people if you are blessed with wealth, because that is what is stated in the two holy books, the BIBLE and the HOLY QURAN.
