    Ep. 58: Saving to Give: Personal Finance & Charitable Planning - Joe Bradford

    Joe Bradford joins the podcast to discuss the spiritual impetus behind personal financial planning. How do concepts like ihsaan direct us to decide whether to spend, save, give, or invest? Are there standards to define extravagance and wastefulness in wealth, or is it all relative? We examine how the mismanagement of our personal finances directly impacts the well-being of the community, non-profit organizations soliciting zakah, maximizing our charitable dollar and suburban-urban outreach.

Totally addicted

I am listening to episode 34 now and at minute 17 you ask The average Caraun reader can be more engaged with the text. For me, when I am being mindful, when I try to do is see where I can make a prayer out of the text. As you said, apply it to my life, but be thankful or otherwise make up prayer. And this helps me to make it personal and more memorable.
