THE STATEMENT ON WEALTH BY HAZRAT MASEEHULLAH رحمه الله

Do not regard maal (wealth) as wealth. The Urdu word maal
(meaning wealth) comes from the term mel (which means dirt). This is
the statement of my Hazrat (rahmatullahi alaihi). He says that since
maal is derived from mel, do we then keep dirt within us or attempt to
get rid of it? Is dirt something that must be kept in the heart or in the
hands? And even when keeping it in the hands, do not close the hand
like this (Hazrat made a fist and pointed it upwards). Instead, keep it
facing downwards (i.e., the hand of the giver) and keep on opening the
hand a little (in spending). Do not open the hand fully (thus causing
wealth to be wasted by becoming spendthrift). But, keep spending in
small amounts.
