Earning halaal

Q: There is a saying written on Pakistani notes (money): رزق حلال کمانا عین عبادت ہے

Is this a hadeeth? Does that mean that one should respect money i.e. not throw it on the floor, etc.?

A: We have not come across any such hadeeth. Perhaps the ibaadat here is referring to an obligation. There is a hadeeth that says that to earn halaal is an obligation.

No. It means to make a halaal living is an obligation.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
