The richest 1 percent of people in the world will have a majority of the wealth on the planet next year, according to development nonprofit Oxfam.
The most-affluent’s share of global wealth climbed to 48 percent in 2014, compared with 44 percent in 2009, and will likely pass 50 percent in 2016.
The report was released Monday ahead of the annual World Economic Forum meeting this week in Davos, Switzerland.
Oxfam warned that the ‘”explosion in inequality”‘ is holding back the fight against global poverty at a time when one in nine people do not have enough to eat and more than a billion people still live on less than $1.25 a day.
The report said the 80 wealthiest people in the world own $1.9 trillion, nearly the same amount shared by the 3.5 billion people at the bottom half of the world’s income scale.
The international agency’s executive director Winnie Byanyima, who will co-chair the Davos event, plans to use her position at the meeting to call for urgent action to stem this rising tide of inequality.
In order to curb extreme inequality, Oxfam is calling upon states to tackle tax evasion, improve public services, tax capital rather than labor, and introduce living minimum wages, among other measures.

When society thinks of the Modern Muslim woman, many envision a mother in hijab tending to her many children, building the family home, teaching her brood (home-educating even), and multi-tasking a million errands and chores at one time. Many Muslim women also work from home, as this shift in the career arena has become very apparent.
However, there is still a large segment of Muslim women / mothers who still physically participate in the work force. They range from doctors, engineers and other professionals, to teachers and educators in general, as well as hold lower-level office positions. And this is true, across the globe.
Regardless of their qualifications and upbringing, interest or ethnicity, a common thread that binds them is the responsibility of their own home. While stay-at-home or work-at-home mothers juggle their children, work and chores from their own home (while dealing with the inherent stress), working mothers leave their home early, and return to the responsibility of children and chores as well in the evenings.
Many mothers pool at least 40 hours a week as well, similar to their husbands and male counterparts. One begs to wonder how a woman as such is able to find balance in a career as well as family, but in the short-term – how would and does she deal with the inherent stress of being a working mother?
If you are a working mother, these tips may help reduce the tensions of balancing career, family and home.
Purify your Intentions and Reasons to Work
Writing out clear intentions as to why you are working will reduce substantial stress and pave a route for a balanced life full of sakeenah (tranquility). This does not mean challenges will not crop up in the future, but making intentions to please Allah through a career, will help you focus on what is important in building a career.
While pleasing Allah is the driving force behind a job, it goes without saying that the means of earning an income is halal (the underlying business nature of the company has to be void of haram activity, such as trade in alcohol or riba); and the job itself does not compromise Islamic principles, such as refraining from mingling freely with the opposite gender, the freedom and discipline to observe prayers, and other religious obligations (such as hijab). The career itself should ideally be focused on the betterment of society (and not merely for personal gain and growth).
Starting a career with pure intentions, including not neglecting the family, and observing Islamic principles in their own right, will help in dealing with personal, job-related or family-related strain in the long run.
Openly Discuss Your Career with Your Husband
As women are neither obligated to work nor spend on their family, an honest discussion with regards to your career with your husband is a must. This is in order to keep the nucleus of the family robust.
With two working individuals, there will be more time spent as individuals rather as a family, compared to having one spouse/parent at home. A thorough discussion with respects to chores and errands, as well as time management with the children is essential so that neither spouse feels like the other is shirking responsibilities. Furthermore, if a mother is also contributing to the family’s expenditure, which is understandable, (because many women do work to supplement a single income), then there needs to be an agreement as well, as money earned by the wife is rightfully hers.
Discussing time-management, errands, household chores, parenting choices and financial matters will also reduce the risk of falling into misunderstandings, if both spouses are on the same page. This does not have to be an agreement carved in stone, but one that adapts over time and may change with circumstances. For example, as children grow older, it is only normal for them to be included in helping to run the household – so both parents need to have mutual understanding on how this will pan out in the long run.
