  • Set a realistic goal

Setting a realistic saving habit is the first step to improving financial stability.  Of course, it would help if you improved your saving habits. But is there enough money to save?

10 ways to Improve your Personal Halal Savings.

  • Pay off debt

Eliminating debt is an essential step toward developing excellent Halal financial freedom.  Not only is debt expensive and has stressful emotional consequences, but it is also one of the fundamental Islamic obligations every Muslim must fulfill before death.  Although having debt might seem burdensome, a successful debt repayment plan can help you free yourself from financial debt, worry and improve your hard-earned savings.

  • Create a budget

A budget is essential to help you manage your money and stay on track with your savings goals. With a budget, you can identify your primary sources of revenue, organize your spending, and classify your costs.

  • Choose your friends

Another critical factor is the people around you. If you plan to improve your savings habits, surround yourself with people who share your interest, values, and goals.  Your ability to save money might increase if you surround yourself with like-minded people.

Keeping tabs on your expenditures is a crucial aspect of good money management that can help increase your saving ability.  First, choose where to cut costs to protect your wallet. Then, use the spending tracker app to ensure you pay attention and keep up with your savings target.

Automatic savings is another proven strategy to increase Halal saving habits.  For example, set up automatic monthly transfers from your checking account to your savings, retirement or other investment accounts.  It will reduce the need for willpower, making it easy to increase your monthly savings.

  • Cut unnecessary expenses

Avoiding unnecessary spending is another excellent strategy to save more money. First, establish priorities by identifying areas where you may cut spending, such as dining out or subscriptions you don't need.  Then, look for alternatives such as a rewards program, or cash back on a purchase.  Finally, redirect the money you save to your savings account.

  • Create a safety net

An emergency fund can cover unexpected needs such as job loss, medical bills, or automobile repairs.  Put aside some of your savings to serve as a safety net for unforeseen costs.
