Trade is done at a place where Allahu ta'ala sees. Since there is no place Allahu ta'ala does not see, we should not deceive anyone, should always see customers as the right party, should not be trying toward them but rather put up with their trying behavior, and should deem it a blessing to serve them for the pleasure of Allah. We should work for the sake of Allah and ponder whether our Lord is pleased with what we are doing now. Our master the Prophet said the following to Hadrat Bilal al-Habashi before dying:

(O Bilal, go and inform my Ummah that they will be successful in all affairs if they do these three things:

The Merchant Whom Allah Loves
People of wisdom state:
 Allahu ta'ala loves a merchant who is honest in all his transactions. Henever loves a liar. Our Master the Prophet said,
"A trustworthy andtruthful merchant will be raised up with prophets, the truthful,and martyrs on the Day of Resurrection."
Trade is done at a place where Allahu ta'ala sees. Since there is noplace Allahu ta'ala does not see, we should not deceive anyone,should always see customers as the right party, should not be tryingtoward them but rather put up with their trying behavior, and shoulddeem it a blessing to serve them for the pleasure of Allah. We shouldwork for the sake of Allah and ponder whether our Lord is pleasedwith what we are doing now. Our master the Prophet said thefollowing to Hadrat Bilal al-Habashi before dying:
(O Bilal, go and inform my
Ummah 
that they will be successful inall affairs if they do these three things:1. Let them be perfectly truthful and let them not deviate fromtruthfulness.2. Let them remain in unity and solidarity with each other.3. Let them correct their intention and do whatever they do forthe pleasure of Allah.)
 
 The sin that upsets Allahu ta'ala the most is to break people's hearts.We should not break anyone's heart no matter whether one is aBeliever or a disbeliever. We should please people, make themhappy, and appreciate their value. We should not regard customersas easy touches, as suckers. Rather, we should regard them as our benefactors.Buying and selling is contingent on the will of Allah, so we cannotknow whether or not the sale will be concluded. We should onlyemploy means, agencies, and ways. We should not do a wrongaction, valuing only money. Instead, we should take it as our duty towin people's hearts and to satisfy them. Those who are modest andfull of love will be successful in all affairs. A little greed brings much harm. Acquisitiveness and greed are liketwo hungry wolves. They gnaw and eat up the greedy, and their livesend in this way. We should be satisfied with what we have and givethanks to Allah for His blessings.Does a person who is satisfied with what he has not work? Of coursehe works. If he attracts positive energy and wins
du'a 
[supplication,prayer], no one can catch him, and no one can count his steps.However, if he is fractious, causes others trouble, and is alwaysquarrelling and disagreeing with people, that is, if he is the one whohas ruined his own self, it is quite difficult for him to do a good job.Eighty percent of success is to win people's hearts and twenty percentof it is to work.
Du'a 
takes precedence over money. It is very wrong to change thisorder and give priority to money. We should work to win
dua 
beforeanything else. In order for us to win
du'a 
, we must do good and winthe love and confidence of others. People listen to and obey whom
