Ask Ibn Halal: We’ve received this question.
salam u seem to know alot i think about business etc
what in this credit crunch can we venture in to earn halal money?
wa alaikum assalam bro Faisal,
It all depends on what assets you have. Assets can be money, telnet, contacts, …
In general, we need to go back to basics, i.e. real stuff: gold, farming, and economies that produce real substances and sustained by population who have savings not credit cards. According to some surveys, Bangladesh is one of the emerging markets that is not affected by the current financial crisis.
What about if someone who doesn’t have money and have skills, say eCommerce? You use your skills and build a service or product for a market that can sustain your business.
