The company I work for delegated to me the task of selling our excess stock within a price range of 10 to 12 dollars a unit. Through my own efforts and on my own time, I was able to find buyers willing to pay 17 dollars a unit. Consequently, I purchased the company’s stock myself at 12 dollars a unit – the high end of the company’s target price range – and then resold it on my own for a profit of 5 dollars a unit. Is this permissible for me to do?

What does Islam say about saving money? Should we save money for the future? I read that some of the prophet's Companions died with no wealth, not even a cloth to shroud their bodies for burial. I also read that Abu Bakr gave all his wealth to the Prophet for distribution in charity. So, where does the concept of saving come in?

My husband and I did not want to take any interest from the bank because we know that it is unlawful in Islam. Then my husband had an idea: take the interest earnings from all the accounts and open a special account for them and use this account exclusively for the payment of taxes. When we asked the local sheikh, he said it was a smart idea that needs a special ruling. Please help us with your opinion.
