Islam Quotes on Riba (Unjustified Profit)
Doing any business of trade that involves commissions, interests or unjustified profits is a sin according to the Holly Quran and according to the Islamic religion.
الَّذِينَ يَأْكُلُونَ الرِّبَا لاَ يَقُومُونَ إِلاَّ كَمَا يَقُومُ الَّذِي يَتَخَبَّطُهُ الشَّيْطَانُ مِنَ الْمَسِّ ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَالُواْ إِنَّمَا الْبَيْعُ مِثْلُ الرِّبَا وَأَحَلَّ اللّهُ الْبَيْعَ وَحَرَّمَ الرِّبَا فَمَن جَاءهُ مَوْعِظَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّهِ فَانتَهَىَ فَلَهُ مَا سَلَفَ وَأَمْرُهُ إِلَى اللّهِ وَمَنْ عَادَ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ أَصْحَابُ النَّارِ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ
It Defines — Those who take interest (even for a short term for making a profit), they become like one to whom Satan has enthralled and confounded by his touch. They will wake up from graves in a similar way before God. This is because they state that interest is just like trading, but God has made ‘trading lawful’, and ‘interest unlawful’. To whosoever a message comes from his God, and he halts (from interest), he may keep his past gains (legally), and his affair is committed to God. On the other side, whoever reverts to it (by judging it to be lawful), they are companions of the Fire; therein they will abide.

Islam doesn’t restrict you from saving money for your future and kids. But, the one who does not spend money in the way of Allah and hoard their money, is disliked by Allah. Hoarding silver or gold is strictly prohibited in the Quran and it’s a sin to follow.

It Defines — The Day when it will be heated in the fire of Hell and seared therewith will be their foreheads, their flanks, and their backs, [it will be said], “This is what you hoarded for yourselves, so taste what you used to hoard.”
Islam On Wealth As A Trail
Islam has guided us on taking wealth as a trail. The pious principle states that one should not love his wealth more than Allah and his Prophet. One should always spend money in the way of Allah and he shall return more to him.
إِنَّمَا أَمْوَالُكُمْ وَأَوْلَادُكُمْ فِتْنَةٌ ۚ وَاللَّهُ عِندَهُ أَجْرٌ عَظِيمٌ
