To God Through Money
This true story begins with a young woman giving birth to a boy, alone in a Californian hospital. His childhood pursuit of candy, music, money and figuring out whether he’s part of the Hispanic, Black, White or Asian crowd, makes him soul search before he embarks on a spiritual journey. He converts to Islam, becomes a student of Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, and goes to study Islam for 4 years in Syria, Morocco and Mauritania, becoming fluent in Arabic and the Islamic sciences. When Mohamed returns home, he becomes an entrepreneur — focused on independence and living according to a philosophy which he calls ‘Happy Money.’ That is the story of Mohamed Geraldez.
