Five Pillars of Prosperity: Essentials of Faith-Based Wealth Building by Dr. M. Yaqub Mirza provides readers with a balanced and sensible approach to financial planning and security. The book is unique in that it is written by a leading Muslim financial expert who draws on Islamic teachings while showing how these Islamic values are consistent with Jewish and Christian values. Though the primary audience may be American Muslims, anyone interested in financial security will find this practical guide helpful in making wise financial decisions.

Dr. Mirza presents a powerful and provocative case for arranging one’s life — and the material pursuits — in ways that not only benefit the reader but also society at large. He shows how the attainment of wealth and prosperity can be achieved by following five key activities: 
Earning, Saving, Investing, Spending, and Giving.

The author closes with a discussion on wealth building strategies and wealth preservation. The book is rich in investment strategies and advice and though the topic is often complex Dr. Mirza’s writings are clear and accessible to a general audience.
“This is an outstanding addition to the literature on financial management! Dr. Mirza illuminating work combines modern wealth management with Muslim, Christian and Jewish morals. Those who read Five Pillars to Prosperity will learn from his experience and will benefit from he’s unique involvement in a range of institutions. This book is easy to read, and brings together the best financial advice from ancient to modern times.” —Dr. Omar Altalib, Assistant Professor of Sociology and Anthropology, International Islamic University, Malaysia
