Mufti Menk: When You Can’t Afford A Life of Luxury…

Those who want to live a life of luxury even though they know that they cannot afford it have none other than themselves to blame when their life is torn apart!

We should never be shy or hesitate to downgrade our entire lifestyle when our earnings have been affected.

Husbands become stressed, wives complain, children develop bad habits ultimately disintegrating the once cosy home, solely because we chose to live a fake life to display to others that we have what we cannot really even afford!
